Actively working since 2007, The Bloody Beetroots, aka Bob Rifo (Producer, DJ) and Tommy Tea (Live Performer, PR), have started with a bunch of remixes characterized by electro-punk, acid and schizoid sound. Many thought of them as another clone of Justice or Boys Noize, but others recognized big potential in this comic-masked duo. Alex Gopher and Etienne De Crecy, the godfathers of ‘French Touch’ realized this and gave their EPs (respectively ‘The Game’ and ‘Funk’) the ‘beetroots’ treatment.’ Two monster remixes come out of these tracks: an apotheosis of riff-a-rama with growing handclaps and charleston… heavy stuff, and immediately almost everybody from the French scene fell in love with the Beetroots. In a few weeks following studio collaborations with Rinôçérôse and an impressive series of remixes (28 in one year) for Fox n’ Wolf, The Whip, Les Petits Pilous, South Central, Naïve New Beaters, Audioporno, Cazals within the other. By the end of 2007 a promo vinyl with their friends Crookers make its appearance creating disorders in the house scene: The Bloody Beetroots remake a hyper futuristic-disco version of the then last release of Timbaland's ‘Miscommunication’ turns into ‘Discommunication.’ It’s the panic factor: DJs and producers like MSTRKRFT, Kissy Sell Out, Steve Aoki, Adam Freeland, Martin Solveig (C'est La Vie), Mixhell, Erol Alkan and Justice list The Bloody Beetroots within their favorite producers. In the meantime three other unknown tracks from TBB were chosen for the TV serial: ‘CSI: Miami’, while the remix of ‘Escape’ from the French artist The Toxic Avenger became the main track for a very famous console game. Within a few months, TBB became real big worldwide ‘blog stars’, requested by the main clubs and festivals in Europe, US and Australia. Their live DJ sets are a perfect and original blend between rave party and punk concert. The debut album of TBB will be published before the end of 2008.
