l.h.b.

remember this name well - ''loïc botté'' (a.k.a. ''l.h.b.'') from ''rennes'', france.
he started his musical journey in the late 90's with some ''hip-hop'' turntablism influenced by labels such as ''warp'' & ''ninja tune''. by the beginning of 21st century he became more interested in ''electronic'' music & ''drum & bass'', generally. as the years went by ''loïc'' decided it was time for him to start creating something on his very own so in 2008 he started with composing. however, due to not always carefree life, only in 2013 he managed to devote himself to create something rather seriously. that's how his brilliant ''late heavy bombardment'' album began to take shape.
it took him 3 months of commitment to finish it & finally on 3rd of july, 2014 it went out - beautifully crafted ''ambient'' driven ''i.d.m.'' with some ''post-industrial'' adulterant. surely, one of the best ''i.d.m.'' albums of the year...

fake plastic heads

''roots.stop'' is proud to present ''charles srđan kuzmanović'' (a.k.a. ''fake plastic heads'', ''11 ton butterfly'', ''host beg suffer'', ''radar.one'', ''sha_lee01'', ''the c'' / leader of ''radar five'' / founder of ''radar five media'' graphic & web design studio), a munich, germany-based ''experimental / ambient / post-industrial / industrial / i.d.m. / noise'' music maker, web & graphic designer, a father, & one & only mastermind behind ''fake plastic heads'' project.
he started making beats way back in 1998 under the moniker of ''11 ton butterfly''. times were changing & ''c'' needed to fuel his emotions into something that would last, at least on his hard drive... he's been a lead singer in various bands from 1991 to 1998. after failing to keep up the work with others ''c'' decided he would be better off, on his own, so he started his ''electronica'' project called ''host beg suffer'', & in early 2005 his own band, ''radar five''. after graduating design school ''c'' started his own company, ''radar five media'', dealing mostly with film, graphic & web design.
than, it came 2014... mr. ''c'' & ''roots.stop'' met quite by suprise somewhere out there in the cyber world, & as a result of that it came this - new album by ''fake plastic heads'' called ''mask'' ready to be released here at ''roots.stop'', exclusively! mr. ''c'' has kindly provided the sounds, ''roots.stop'' came up with track order & .wav-to-.mp3-to-.flac encoding, so now this outstanding piece of ''i.d.m. / ambient / post-industrial'' is ready to go & it's up to you to experience this exquisite mind journey:

01. ''mask'' (2014)

rebel b

rebel b (a.k.a. ''caspa'', ''the bug'', ''tes la rok'' / founder of ''balkan dubstep unit'' project) is a ''dubstep'' producer from ''belgrade'', serbia.
everything began with ''hip-hop'' in the early 90's. later, in the late 90's, he started mixing ''drum & bass'', ''breakbeat'', ''glitch'', ''reggae'', ''dub'' & even ''dancehall''. at the beginning of 2000, finally, he began producing his own music, more & more influenced by ''dubstep''. as a result of this, in 2006, he came up with his own style merging from ''deep dubstep'' to ''wobble horror''. at the same time his ''balkan dubstep unit'' has been launched, a project aiming to unify ''dubstep'' artists from region & beyond, & to promote their work.
as my tribute to this artist & all he's trying to accomplish i'm bringing, by my opinion, his foremost release by now - an ''electronic / dubstep / dub techno'' masterpiece:

01. ''bad moon rising'' (e.p., 2013)
