Rockstar Heaven is the debut EP of Monolog a band/collaboration between Leisure-B and the Lookman bros Bas and Ramon. Coming from their hometown in the Netherlands Bussum, the three go way back and it was meant to be that at one time they would join their musical forces.
Working with Uwe in Germany, Leisure-B and he came up with the title track "Rockstar Heaven", on which the brothers worked on for a number of days, before coming up with added value and taking it to the next level. As the different styles of Leisure and the brothers began to merge in the same direction, the rest of the songs started to pop-up instantly. The songs on the EP have different subjects and switch between personal life encounters to big subjects in history, but still actual today.
As the three are all advocating a merge between styles and are able to jump from the one to the other, the album is a musical piece that seems to feature different acts, however the EP breaths its own overall unique Monolog sound which ranges from experimental pop and rock to trip hop and breakbeat.
