The 'Great Times' star has reportedly been "vibrating the walls" with his heavy bass during filming for new music show.

Will.i.am has reportedly turned his backstage area on The Voice UK into a home recording studio.

The Black Eyed Peas man apparently turned up with a large amount of equipment on the first day of filming so he can come up with ideas when he is on the show.

A source told The Sun: "Will.i.am goes everywhere with his music kit so he can lay down tracks wherever he is. So it was no surprise to everyone when he and his crew turned up with a stack of gear on the first day.

The team on the show are reportedly very happy with idea and hope the coach might come up with fresh ideas for his acts on the upcoming series.

"Producers thought it was great as we want him to be happy as Larry while he's on the show, and who knows what ideas he'll come up with for his acts? Will has some serious bass in there and it was vibrating the walls — you could almost see the dandruff being shaken off their heads," they added.

The show will air on TV screens this weekend, and fellow coach Jessie J recently confessed that she will be like Simon Cowell on the series as she admitted she will be extra critical of the contestants where she deems applicable.
