The Bloody Beetroots is the creation of Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo. Inspired by his lifelong love of punk rock and comics, Rifo unleashed The Bloody Beetroots in 2006 and has since crafted an intense sound that mixes his classical training, his punk rock obsession and his passion for electronic music into an edgy rock-meets-dance hybrid sound.

The Bloody Beetroots first exploded on the scene via his critically acclaimed debut LP ‘Romborama,’ feat. the iconic “Warp 1.9” with Steve Aoki, both of which helped launch the American EDM boom at the end of the 2000s. His sophomore LP, ‘Hide,’ featured crossover tracks with rock and alt icons like Paul McCartney, Tommy Lee and more.

Rifo’s third LP, ‘The Great Electronic Swindle’ (2017), continued the electronic-rock narrative via collaborations with Perry Farrell, Jet, Gallows, Deap Vally and more. In 2019, The Bloody Beetroots released the‘Heavy’ EP, which saw Rifo revisiting his classic electro style and featured collaborations with Zhu and Dr. Fresch, as well as three new solo originals. 2021 saw Bob pair with Tom Morello torelease The Catastrophists EP. And Bob provided the entire 16 track soundtrack to the RiMS Racing video game. 10 classics and 6 brand new tracks that have now been released as the Official RiMS Racing Soundtrack.

The Bloody Beetroots has performed his boundary-pushing full live band shows and DJ sets around the globe on headline tours and at every major music festival including Coachella, Lollapalooza, Prima Vera, Pink Pop, Fuji Rock and more.
