Imagine the love child of the Misfits and Daft Punk; the act of conception would be grisly, but what a mighty offspring their union would generate. A formidable figure a la Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, the polymath and producer behind the Bloody Beetroots. While Bloody Beetroots burst on to the scene in 2007, Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo did not spring forth from the godhead fully formed. Born in Bassano del Grappa, Italy, in 1977, our hero started young, studying classical guitar and learning to sight read via the traditional solfège method (you know – like "Do Re Mi" in The Sound of Music). But his imagination was fired by other sources: The raw energy of punk and rockabilly music; the vibrant images and outrageous storylines of comics by Max Bunker, Benito Jacovitti, and especially Tanino Liberatore, creator of the cyberpunk RanXerox.First up were "French Touch" icons Alex Gopher and Etienne de Crecy, who let Bloody Beetroots put their edgy, acid stamp on the respective tracks "The Game" and "Funk." With other French artists like Rinôçérôse lining up for his services, within a single year Rifo cranked out 28 Bloody Beetroots remixes. But not to mark territory, so much as to respond to fellow artists from around the world, and poise Bloody Beetroots as a truly international sound. In 2007, two pivotal releases pushed Bloody Beetroots to the next level. First, a vigorous overhaul of "Maniac," the percolating 1983 electro-pop smash from the soundtrack of Flashdance, an homage so inspired it won accolades from original composer Michael Sembello. Next up was "Discommunication," a futuristic disco redux of Timbaland's "Miscommunication." As original music and remixes by Bloody Beetroots began to bubble up in pop culture, via placement in episodes of CSI: Miami and prominent use in videogames, peers like Justice, MSTRKRFT, Adam Freeland, and Martin Solveig were singing their praises in the press. Dim Mak founder Steve Aoki was an early, and passionate, convert: "The Bloody Beetroots is my favorite project right now. Bob's remixes are some of my biggest bangers in my sets." He lost no time in snapping up Bloody Beetroots to release their US debut, the ROMBO EP (with a full-length slated to follow soon). "The EP summarizes much of my world," says Rifo. "You hear classical music, electronica, pop, fidget, punk. And the album will be even more comprehensive, because I want to incorporate new elements… all my musical components. I need that."DJs and producers like MSTRKRFT, Kissy Sell Out, Adam Freeland, Martin Solveig, Mixhell, Erol Alkan and Justice list The Bloody Beetroots among their favourite producers The debut album of TBB will be published spring 2009 trough DIM MAK/Downtown records.

The man behind Dim Mak Records who founded artists from Bloc Party, The Kills, The Gossip, Klaxons and many more also is the same man behind the production moniker Weird Science that has remixed Peaches, Snoop Dogg and Bloc Party. Under his own name, Aoki has remixed Duran Duran and Timbaland as well as produced original work with internationally renowned producer, Junkie XL. Hailing from Los Angeles you can check most of his antics up on his partner in crime'swebsite <> and read his infamous blog on <> . Not to mention he's got his own clothing line to boot.

The Arcs Are Barry Farrell, Josh Marshal, Adam Kenny. In a mish-mash idea concentration each member of the group has a different take on music but all united by the need to entertain and perform music that turns heads and moves bodies. The Arcs of Triumph, cross genre between many styles including, techno, electro, house, baltimore, experimental, dubsteb, rock, IDM, disco house, minimal, fidget, twisted and many unnameable noises. The Arcs DJ sets always excite.
