NOW ON BANDCAMP 50+ Exclusive Tracks on the Electronic Explorations Compilation
CLUBROOT

..And now, 2012 will bring the trilogy of self-titled albums by Clubroot to a close, culminating with III – MMX, and with it, LoDubs is honoured to be the presenter of 13 new tracks, in a program clocking in over one hour, consisting of his most refined, touching works to date, which demonstrate an interwoven and otherworldly understanding of the depths, atmospheres, and potential shapes of low end melody and frequencies perhaps only seen in fleeting glimpses in other forms of sound in the past. We just hope you have a capable stereo….

…And with that, the trilogy is complete.

25 year old Dan Richmond first immerged into the Dubstep scene mid 2009 with his debut self-titled Album – Clubroot. Having enjoyed a healthy Drum and Bass scene in his early teens, alongside a liking of UK Garage, House and Trance, a local Music Technology course was the logical progression for the aspiring bedroom DJ. After discovering that the music he loved could be produced in such simple home studios, Clubroot went on to University to study Music Production for 3 years.

It was during his time at University that Clubroot discovered the sounds of Dubstep, via Mary Anne Hobbs Dubstep Warz Show in 2006. Taking an immediate liking to the work of Vex’d, Skream and Loefah, tastes soon progressed towards the deeper side of the scene with the ore inspiring début album releases of Distance and Burial.

Things began moving forward after interest was shown in Clubroots un-official album ‘Embryo’, which was created as a final year project for University. Having been inspired by a number of artists and electronic genres, a brooding organic ambient sound was developing, which showed emotion and musicality, drawing inspiration from his love of early Dark Techy D&B, 2 Step beats, Film Scores and Ambient Electronica. It was the Portland, Oregon based LoDubs label that first took notice of such an exciting artist, and around mid 2008 an official release was due the following year. In 2009 Clubroot was also voted for as the best new producers and best album in the Dubstepforum Awards.

During the build up to the Albums release, Mary Anne Hobbs commissioned an Album showcase mix for her Experimental Show, shortly followed by a mix for Rob Booths Electronic Exploration show. It was clear that people were beginning to take notice, with acclaim and recognition from a number of reviewers and critics, including glowing reviews from Pitchfork and Bigup Magazine, amongst others.

    I find it hard to express how good i think your music is.
    Its like it grabs your soul and twists it. It hurts but it also feel good.
    Happy and sad at the same time..I know it makes no sense.
    Peace.
