Stone People are the Belarussian answer to The Chemical Brothers, The Crystal Method, The Prodigy and Fatboy Slim. You know the drill: you get breakbeats (lots of them), of the dirty, explosive, and, yes, unforgettable variety. Of course, their music is extremely danceable. And they even manage to pull it off without sampling obsolete guitar music simply for novelty’s sake — make no mistake, Stone People are about as real as you’re going to get.
If you’re interested to learn which acts are going to storm a large venue near you in the future before they actually do so ( when breakbeat makes a come-back during the inevitable 90s revival that’s bound to happen sometime in the near future), you should definitely check out Stone People.
Stone People are:
Eugene «Masik»: designs web sites by day. At night, he’s the driving force behind Stone People, supremely cool during live shows with a cigarette dangling from his lips, one eye on the dance floor and another one on his computer screen, intensely serious working on one of a myriad of musical projects in his home studio.
Andrey: runs a furniture business. You may also be interested to know he’s Stone People’s guitarist. He started out his musical career as a punk rock guitarist, but we’ll forgive him for that.
«Rupert»: the only member of the band with a formal music education, plus servers as a source for most of the vocal samples the band uses in their tracks.
The band have already achieved legendary status in clubbing world of the Belarussian capital minsk. Before the first 100 copies of their album (distributed as self-produced CDrs) were sold, Minsk CD vendors felt the need to pirate their material. Stone People’s music has also been featured in TV commercials (without, it must be said, the band being informed of this or receiving royalties — copyrights are quite the alien concept in belarus) and on compilation CDs with MP3 files, where they were featured alongside Crystal Method and the Chemical Brothers. An animated music video to their first major hit, Stone People - TGB, was not just a great scandal on local TV, but also a great hit in the Internet, links to download it still appear on sites all over the planet recomending it as the sickest animation ever.
