"With the benefit of almost zero British press attention, Clubroot's self-titled debut CD gained quite a cult following last year, with plenty of enthused chat on message boards like Dubstep Forum, while both Mary Anne Hobbs and Rob Booth commissioned Clubroot mixes for their respective (and much respected) radio shows. His sound is often compared favorably with Burial's more atmospheric sequences, and with a similar air of anonymity characterizing his public (non) profile, he seems already to be attracting an audience who betray a certain obsessiveness in their listening habits. There are distinct and catalytic events and occurrences in our lives, and when thinking of these events in retrospect, unusually vivid mental pictures sometimes remain. For some, the summer of 2009 will carry a soundtrack of Clubroot along with the stories of their life, and when they mentally mark said period, will always conjure up along with it the music of the grey album, with the fog enveloped tree on the cover. The moment the elements of the debut release were sealed and disseminated, our artist set out on a new path involving visits to such disparate locales as Türkiye and Polska, which became parts of the cinematic ambiance that is the new Clubroot album, II-MMX. In doing so, our artist has created a series of images, with sounds so absolutely married to its accompanying elements that it seems as if it was unearthed in complete form as opposed to constructed. It possesses some of the most pronounced and arresting bass-lines ever heard, delivered musically in a language as ethereal and intense as, say, Dead Can Dance, Cocteau Twins, or perhaps Muslimgauze, but couched in a language informed by the scene around dubstep and UK garage."
