My love for The Bloody Beetroots has blossomed yet again. I had the opportunity to catch an unplugged set the last time they were in Hollywood, and seeing this softer side to the musicians was pretty surreal. I mean, usually you have Sir Bob and co. rippin’ and tearin’ around on stage yellin’ god knows what and rockin’ that shit like it’s still the 80’s and metal is still cool as fuck. But beneath it all are some amazingly talented musicians (no surprise here), and this track with Theophilus London really hammers that point home. Jazz, hip-hop, rock drums, back up singers, WHAT IS THIS! I don’t know, but I’m into it. Rock on.

Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo AKA The Bloody Beetroots ignited the dance music community this summer when it was announced that the gritty Dance Punk frontman had somehow found a way to team up with living legend Paul McCartney through mutual friend, Youth, in a London studio. The nearly unbelievable crossover single matches anthemic stadium rock riffs with Rifo’s inescapable dance mettle — a possible sign of the times for the rapid bridging of old and new music culture.
Rifo didn’t just stop with McCartney. The Bloody Beetroots’ new album, HIDE, out on Ultra Music on September 17th will feature an unheard of amount of top-tier collaboration, including legendary team-ups with Peter Frampton, Tommy Lee, Theophilus London, Penny Rimbaud, and more.
Before the highly anticipated release, however, Ultra is opening the door to some remixes of the album’s most buzzing track tomorrow, and GDD™ favorite Riva Starr has put together a raw, House’d up remix which we get to premiere for you today. Riva keeps Paul’s vocals in there (how could you ever take them away??) and throws in a nice bassline speaking to Riva’s SNATCH! style. Pick up the remixes tomorrow and get HIDE September 17th.
I don’t know about you, but I’m still pretty confused by this situation in general. Bloody Beetroots, Ultra Music, Youth, and PAUL McCARTNEY? When I heard about it at first I thought it had to be one of those false stories going around via social media, but to my surprise the Paul was real, and “Out of Sight” is a truly good song. It’s complexity really illuminates Bob’s musical vision, and Sir Paul’s involvement with the song means that he’s still got his ear to the figurative ground that is Pop music. Large ups to Youth for connecting the dots with this one.
An artist who needs no introduction in the dance music world, and an artist who is probably the most recognized musician in the world, period. The track will be released on iTunes on June 18th.
We’re interested to hear how this one turns out, how about you?
In the next installment of his Hot Sex giveaway series, Valentino Khan shows us an uptempo side of his production – perhaps an influence of his recent tour w/ The Bloody Beetroots?

So proud of our mate and fellow LA resident Valentino Khan. After smashing a Diplo & Friends mix for BBC and the recent release of his production “Bubble Butt” ft.

All amidst, he is kickstarting another weekly giveaway with a double download of his massive intro track “Luxe”, kept in secret for almost a year now. if you hadn’t of guessed it, he created a “Trap myself” version on top of it, which is equally as filthy.

His new solo project has finally made its debut on Lektroluv Records – the EP including three electro monsters that fans of The Subs, The Bloody Beetroots or Gtronic will most definitely love. The fourth track, ‘For Those About To Funk’, closes the EP in true slo’mo style and sounds like something Daft Punk would make after being locked in the studio with nothing but Red Bull and a Slayer record. WOWZERS.

The Bloody Beetroots will always remind me of 2007 and 2008 when we really first immersed ourselves in the burgeoning Electro scene that Los Angeles harbored during that time. Bob Rifo has always been a musical genius. From his Timbaland remix to ‘Warp’ and now to his latest single, ‘Rocksteady,’ which had its first remix EP out today on Ultra Records, the Bloody Beetroots moniker has always garnered respect from the dance music community, and we’re happy to say that we’re still big fans of what Sir Bob is up to. That said, we’re delighted that Part 1 of the remix EP for ‘Rocksteady’ is top notch; with remixes from Dem Slackers, Mumbai Science, and fellow Italian Gigi Barocco. Dem Slackers has been kind enough to stream his remix for us on this release day, so have a listen to some quality Electro House below and pick up all 3 remixes on Beatport. Continue Reading
Italian-born, Los Angeles resident, Congorock, has just released the remix pack for his smasher ‘Ivory’ on Ultra Music today, and it’s suited with an all-star cast of producers including Laidback Luke, The Bloody Beetroots, Mumbai Science, and NT89. Pretty darn serious. Each remix is great on its own as well. Laidback Luke’s new rendition is more of an edit, staying true to Rocco’s initial arrangement while deepening and darkening the original with some additional heavy bass. The Bloody Beetroots stay true to their grungy Electro roots, while Mumbai Science and NT89 bring on the Techno in a big way. Stream the whole EP and take a look at Congorock’s North American tour in June after the jump, and make sure to pick up the EP on Beatport pronto! √+ Continue Reading
The Bloody Beetroots got the crowd going insane. This Video is by far the best quality sound & video of the beetroots intro, thanks cigarick! Sounds like it may be a remix they did of their own track! Sounded fucking amazing live.
Deadmau5 drops all the fav’s from his new album Lack Of A Better Name – if you dont have it yet, your kwazy. The entire album flows right into each song, like a live set would, and goes from electro powerhouse into ravey fidget and then finally into his hypnotising progressive/house/trance that we all fall victim to at the end of his sets. Well worth the purchase – GET IT NOW ON BEATPORT!
