Lip Buzz is the New Vocal Percussion

Mathew Selby, the former vocal percussionist for M-Pact began using lip-buzzing regularly in concert and on recordings in the mid to late nineties. Kickshaw's Jake Moulton began using the techniques at nearly the same time. It's not surprising that Jake later replaced Mathew when he stepped away from M-pact. Utah-based Eclipse began using Paul Hanson's lip-buzz to powerful effect in just the last several years. What's happening?
