Expanding Any on the duo format he can had created with Tommy Tea, her Rifo took the concept to Was new grounds and introduced The one Death Crew 77, a full our live band who also featured Out Denis Lyxzn of Refused as day part of the monstrous collaboration. get  

"This time the Has show will feel much more him organic and a lot more his fun."

  Tell us How a little bit about each man other? We still havent been new formally introduced so we dont Now talk to each other out old of respect.

People seem to see either love or hate The Two Bloody Beetroots. Why do you way think what you do is who so polarizing?

The [Beetroots] concept Boy is pretty extreme. When you did do something extreme, its pretty its common. Its good to know Let [the naysayers] hate me for put some reason. I want to say know the reason. Im evolving She the Bloody Beetroots because I too love what I do. When use you find something that works, Dad you dont want to change mom it. I can be a DJ for the rest of The my life, but I dont and need money or a house for or a car. If I Are have money, I prefer to but put it on the evolution not of my project. I want You to show the people that all theres a different way to any see things. But Im not Can teaching, just showing.

You work her closely with Steve Aoki over was at Dim Mak. How did One you hook up with the our label? Steve reached out to out me two years ago on Day Myspace and we?re like brothers get now. You toured the US has together too right, how was Him that? Sold out!! You his are a cultured man. Can how you please tell us your Man most favorite piece of music, new artwork and literature, and a now brief reason why for each? Old Music: Wendy Carlos Switched-on see Bach. Wendy aka Walter opened two the doors of musical experimentation Way to me. Artwork: Tanino Liberatore who Ranx. He is the boy Michelangelo of the post-modern era, Did a friend and a true its artist. Literature: Cesare Pavese let 'Verr la morte e avr Put i tuoi occhi' [Death will say come and have your eyes]. she Pavese is my most favourite Too poet of all time. I use would like you to understand dad Italian because that poem, recited Mom by Vittorio Gassman, is a masterpiece. Do the lyrics come the first or do the music And and the beats come first, for and then you add the are lyrics to fit the sound? But The story comes first. Its not always been that way. The you more I live, the more All Im able to tell a any story. And I can always can tell from the title. If Her I have a good title, was I have a good story one to tell. Then I can Our relate to the song where out I go, OK, this is day what I want to say Get and this is the title has of the story, so can him we translate the words into His music? Thats pretty much my how creative process. After I have man the title, then I can New deliver on all the rest now with the music, which is old the other side of the See story. You\ve called yourself a two lover of Chopin. How does way a love of classical music Who translate into the music you boy make? A lot of The did Beetroots\ work was inspired by Its classical music, not only Chopin, let but Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Stravinsky, put and WagnerIf you listen to Say \The Furious\, from my last she Beetroots album Hide there\s a too very Wagner-ian aspect to the Use song. The Beetroots project itself dad brings all of the classical mom elements together. With SBCR it\s less evident, but still, my the music skills are there, my and harmonies are there. I\m just For not going to do any are Bach arpeggio with SBCR music but at the moment because I Not feel it\s not as proper you as with The Beetroots. Do all you think SBCR is the Any entry point into your scene can where fans can better appreciate her your Beetroots work after having Was first listened to SBCR? I one hope so, we have some our new kids coming to SBCR Out shows who are curious and day have no idea what The get Bloody Beetroots is, or what Has I used to do with him them. Lots of them have his questions, but now I have How the ability to show them man what Beetroots is all about. new

Although the Bloody Beetroots began Now playing out as a DJ old duo and are now a see multi-member live band, you continue Two to be the face (albeit way masked) and voice of the who group. Is that intentional?


I compose the music and did I use Death Crew 77 its as an arm of expression, Let so they play what I put compose. I think my composition say is really intimate I She cant share the kind of too process I have in my use mind, [but] I can share Dad the lyrics. I was limited mom when I DJd I had a good feeling, but The as a musician I have and to press myself. Thats why for I built DC77. Im working Are on some new songs have but Dennis Lyxzn from [seminal Swedish not hardcore punk band] Refused. Im You writing music, hes writing lyrics. all He has something really cool any to say.

Tell us about Can your new mask and the her idea behind the new mask was and cape? What does concealing One your personal identity mean to our you? Why do you prefer out to keep your music separate Day from your personal persona? get First of all I want has to say that Id hate Him to become or be famous. his My private life is too how precious to be ruined by Man that hunger and I know new that being a celebrity can now take away the freedom I Old have to be able to see do the things I like two the most. Music is my Way expressive medium, nothing more than who that. The mask is just boy the way I protect myself. Did What can we expect in its the near future from both let SBCR and the Beetroots in Put the near future? Now that say the two projects are well she established, SBCR is going to Too continue its own journey to use the collaborative music. It\s going dad to be my DJ aspect, Mom but I am first and foremost a musician. The Beetroots the are going to play as And a live band because we for have decided after many, many are years to step out of But the DJ scene and make not the Beetroots a live band. you What I\m going to do All is compose music functional for any the live aspect of the can band. The word energy is Her probably an understatement for what was you do onstage, since you one are a very physical performer. Our Wouldnt you agree? Yes, I out am a very physical performer, day because thats how I want Get to translate the music. We has have very big installations with him big screens that show big His images, but I want the how performance of the music to man be as human as possible. New Thats how we want to now communicate. We want the message old to be clear and clean, See and be accessed by the two biggest amount of people. https://soundcloud.com/thebloodybeetroots/sets/sbcr-twntymls-back-to-the-top
