THE BLOODY BEETROOTS
Imagine the love child of the Misfits and Daft Punk; the act of conception would be grisly, but what a mighty offspring their union would generate. A formidable figure a la Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, the polymath and producer behind the Bloody Beetroots.
While Bloody Beetroots burst on to the scene in 2007, Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo did not spring forth from the godhead fully formed. Born in Bassano del Grappa, Italy, in 1977, our hero started young, studying classical guitar and learning to sight read via the traditional solfège method (you know – like “Do Re Mi” in The Sound of Music). But his imagination was fired by other sources:The raw energy of punk and rockabilly music; the vibrant images and outrageous storylines of comics by Max Bunker, Benito Jacovitti, and especially Tanino Liberatore, creator of the cyberpunk RanXerox.
In 2007, two pivotal releases pushed Bloody Beetroots to the next level. First, a vigorous overhaul of “Maniac,” the percolating 1983 electro-pop smash from the soundtrack of Flashdance, an homage so inspired it won accolades from original composer Michael Sembello. Next up was “Discommunication,” a futuristic disco redux of Timbaland’s “Miscommunication.”
Dim Mak founder Steve Aoki was an early, and passionate, convert: “The Bloody Beetroots is my favorite project right now. Bob’s remixes are some of my biggest bangers in my sets.” He lost no time in snapping up Bloody Beetroots to release their US debut, the ROMBO EP
DJs and producers like MSTRKRFT, Kissy Sell Out, Adam Freeland, Martin Solveig, Mixhell, Erol Alkan and Justice list The Bloody Beetroots among their favourite producers
The debut album of TBB will be published spring 2009 trough DIM MAK/Downtown records.
Their last BUTTON FACTORY inspired somewhat of a riot,do not miss this show!
