Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo of The Bloody Beetroots returns with ‘The Grid’
SBCR is Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo’s newest identity, a DJ-focused counterpart to the rock-influenced, live electronic Bloody Beetroots. RIfo’s also on the verge of releasing an EP’s worth of gritty electro under the new moniker, a 6-track pressing called SBCR & Friends, Vol 1. The first new track to appear is SBCR’s “The Grid.” An over-compressed assault at 130 bpm, Rifo’s return is also a defibrillator shock on the dormant genre of thrashing electro. Visceral and heavily-filtered, the Bloody Beetroots front man proves he hasn’t missed a step in the year’s since 2012’s Hide, nor has he fallen victim to following any of today’s trends. This is 2009, “WARP 1.9” era Rifo at his best — on the label that he’s called home for most of his career, Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak. The 6-track EP will feature hand-picked collabs with Razihel, Moon Bounce and Eliza Bee & His Majesty Andre and will arrive on March 17th via Dim Mak Records.
