Hardware is very excited to welcome the return of The Bloody Beetroots. This is the first Bloody Beetroots DJ Set tour in 4 years and Bob will debut tracks from his upcoming 4th album release. A joyful cheer … a raised fist … an upward roll of the eyes … no matter where you come from, you can decode these signals without a dictionary. You don’t always need words to communicate. But they sure can make a big difference.
“I wasn’t mature enough before to understand how much weight words can have,” says producer Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, mastermind of the Bloody Beetroots. Now, as his music evolves to a higher state, language—in all its gravity and fluidity—plays a pivotal role.
Certainly, language barriers didn’t stop the Italian-born Rifo from connecting with audiences worldwide almost immediately after unleashing the first recordings in late 2006. Inspired by Rifo’s lifelong love of comic books and punk rock, the visceral kick of the Beetroots’ sound has featured prominently in TV shows and video games, and powered dozens of remixes, for artists including Chemical Brothers, Depeche Mode, The Refused, Peaches, and Britney Spears.
The Bloody Beetroots discography features a string of successful EPs—including collaborations with Sir Paul McCartney, Perry Farrell, and guitar legend Peter Frampton—and two full length albums (2009’s Roborama and 2013’s Hide). Parties and festivals around the world have thrilled to different incarnations of the Bloody Beetroots’ incendiary live show.
The Bloody Beetroots’ latest album The Great Electronic Swindle was a 2017 release on Last Gang Records.
