The Bloody Beetroots have been tearing up the dance music circuit since 2007, but it was only when they remixed one of my favourite tracks that I finally paid them some attention. Hailing from Vicenza, Italy, The Bloody Beetroots are indie music producer Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo and DJ Tommy Tea. Known for their raucous live gigs and distinctive Venom masks, The Bloody Beetroots have remixed the likes of Robyn, MSTRKRFT, Tiga, Groove Armada, and Shitdisco. They like to push the boundaries of dance music and remix across a variety of genres including Big Beat, New Rave, Dance Punk, and Electropop.
For the first time, 18 of these remixes (plus another five digital-only tracks) are available on one album as The Bloody Beetroots release Best Of… Remixes on Dim Mak Records. To mark the release of this massive collection, The Bloody Beetroots are offering two of their remixes for download:
The Whip’s “Muzzle #1” is one of my favourite tracks of all time, and it was this remix that finally alerted me to the brilliance that is The Bloody Beetroots.
When they are not remixing other artists and touring, The Bloody Beetroots record their own music which is really quite good. Tracks to look out for are “Butter” and “Domino.” You can catch up with The Bloody Beetroots on MySpace and Twitter.
