WWW Neurobeat

The band WWW was formed in Prague in the early 1990s. No one knew then that the band's name would later take on a whole new meaning. Originally the name WWW was an abbreviation of the English "We Want Word ". At that time WWW gathered around them the first Czech hip-hop enthusiasts, they were one of the first rap bands in the Czech Republic. They also co-created the foundations of the local graffiti, breakdance and turntablist scene. In later years, WWW started to work with live instruments, the band acted as a post hip-hop big band and slowly moved away from classic rap production.

In 1998, the band's acclaim culminated in frequent concerts, and its songs were released on independent compilations. Thanks to their cooperation with major record labels, the band also got a "taste" of the domestic mainstream. Eventually, however, its members opted for an independent artistic career, which, together with internal pressures, caused WWW to break up, just before the band's first album was offered but rejected by Polygram Records.

The lyrics of Neurobeat are for the most part the work of Lubomir Typlt, and Ondřej Anděra also collaborated on them. Typlt's lyrics are sometimes confusing and difficult to grasp, provoking the listener to think and strain his imagination. Their urgency is enhanced by metaphors, euphony and a wide range of poetic devices. Ondřej Anděra's lyrics are more like abstract impressions, emphasizing the rhythmic essence of words, their multiple meanings and sound colour. Anděr's rap balances on the border of rhythmic playfulness and stimulating, furious and aggressive invocation. Everything is multiplied by the metallic voice of the singer Milesa.

In concert WWW still work with scratch and mixes by DJ Brainy Thug, often improvising with looping devices and experimenting with synchronization with lasers and video projections. WWW merge the practices of hip hop, industrial and electronica. In the Czech Republic they are sometimes compared to bands like Beastie Boys, Massive Attack, NIN or Young Gods. WWW have headlined several major music festivals in the Czech Republic and Slovakia and have been nominated for several music awards, such as the Andel Award.

As of 2024 they have four albums to their credit – Neurobeat (2006), Tanec sekyr (2009), Atomová včela (2013) and Neututopíš se dvakrát v téže řece (2018).
