The Bloody Beetroots can throw their ’signature’ bass drum + snare + plucking synths + distorted/reversed vocals + stutter tracks on ANYTHING and make it sound gold, but is there anything beyond these sounds with the masked (all day long) italian producers?
Don’t get me wrong on this one, I’m not complaining, but let’s hear what you can do using something outside the box of beetroots.
Here’s a fairly recent remix of Secret Handshake. This band is part of a very…. interesting movement… which I like to call the emo-fag-failure-vocoded-electro movement popularized by the likes of Muscles et al. (who’s not gay –australia factor/remixed by gods –circle jerk effect).
There are a number of other land locked-united states ‘outfits’ not unlike these who have a cult following of teenage guys. I get depressed looking at their myspaces so I’ll leave the search up to you.
Sorry, derail, back to the track. Again, classic BBs sound (that’s short for Bloody Beetroots, yeah, acronyms.) The intro starts this track so well and builds it up into a string quartet, electronic blow-up.
touche my italian friends, touche.
BONUS!!!! we’ve got the EP version of ‘Butter’ due out on the EP from dim mak soon! Assuming most of you have heard the draft version of Butter, and this is a prime example of ‘outside of beetroots box’ territory. Still has some vintage flavor but a slew of new and welcome sounds.
Watch for stateside releases of Bloody Beetroots LP/EP from your most well known ambiguously feminine asian w/ facial hair label mama….Steve Aoki, Dim Mak -reaping the benefits of music blogville since, forever and signing the bands. amen.
