The Bloody Beetroots // ’Church Of Noise’ (Feat Dennis Lyxzen)
Now, I guess you could say that these guys are my guilty pleasure. Since I really don’t know many hipster/indie/critics that actually like The Bloody Beetroots, apart from moshing to ‘Warp 1.9’ at every party possible.
But yes, I absolutely love the Italian trio, spearheaded by a true visionary of the electronic scene, Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo.
What I don’t understand, is the amount of hate they seem to receive on a large scale from people, labelling them as shitty DJs like the rest of the Stereosonic lineup. Yes, their roots lie within producing mind-numbing bangers, but a lot has changed since two masked DJs took over Europe in the mid-2000’s.
Now, The Bloody Beetroots and their Death Crew 77, bring a new lease on electronic music as they create their music with a full band. On top of this they bring the band to their live performances, in an awe inspiring display of electronic beats meet orchestral/stings sections and intense rock.
Bob Rifo really isn’t your ordinary producer. His roots lie within the punk scene and this is showing more and more within The Bloody Beetroots, as colabs with Steve Aoki, All Leather and most recently Refused have demonstrated how punk and electro can meet in the middle.
This is where we come to ‘Church Of Noise’. This track is built around the punk vocals of Refused's Dennis Lyxzen, and Rifo's harsh guitar tones. Added with real drums (yes, thats a real issue here) and a ridiculous amount of synth layering, it's an awesome dance track that beats everything else out there right now.
This ain’t a club track. This is a track you’d want to see live.
