Close your eyes and imagine, if you will, the bastard son of the Misfits and Daft Punk. As gruesome as the act of conception may appear, the union would generate the most grandiose of offspring. A formidable force, not unlike The Bloody Beetroots.
That's the first line from The Bloody Beetroots myspace page. I can totally tell how he got this too. Their stage performances are a force to be reckoned with, and they have been playing world wide tours since...forever. So I said he and they in that sentence, and it probably doesn't make much sense. Let me explain:
Bloody Beetroots is the name under which producer and dj Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo operates. In the Beetroots live sets and dj sets, Sir Bob avails himself of the services of Tommy Tea.
In 2007, Bob got signed to the U.S. label, Dim Mak, the brainchild of Steve Aoki. The first releases were the EP's Rombo (2008), Cornelius (2008) and Warp Feat. Steve Aoki (2009). Warp and Cornelius made it into the iTunes Top Ten Albums Chart. Rifo and Aoki have recently formed a hardcore punk band called Rifoki, produced by Giulio Favero of Teatro Degli Orrori, due for release in 2010).
Give it a run on this awesome (ha) track. The Cool Kids are dope too, and this whole thing just gives off that "oh shit" smell...but in a good way. Enjoy.
