Time for another round of guest bloggers. This time, we’re lucky enough to have the Bloody Beetroots sharing some of their Italian insider tips with us. They felt like Congorock fit the bill, so take it away guys….
One thing we really appreciate is people with inclination to work, no matter what’s on the plate, just giving all themselves for it. Congo is not only that: through the time, he managed to hold a creative touch, producing a vibrant and distinctive sound, highlighting various roots (we love ro0o0ots) from the electronic universe, to then pass on intertwining them. The result is a pronounced impact, as dancefloor demolition is the typical outcome.
That’s also enough to be in the Beetroots’ top list and in yours, as soon as you will turn up the subs. We thought the best way to define the caleidoscopic view of this multicoloured producer was to ask directly for an introduction. Here it comes, as straight as the Freccia Salentina:
I grew up in a weird place in Southern Italy where reggae and d ‘n b have always been popular, with underground parties, illegal raves and so on. Although my teenagehood consisted of a “too cool for everything” lifestyle, and I didn’t care so much about things around me, I unconsciously received lots of music inputs from the electronic scene in my hometown, gaining unconditioned love for frequencies under 100hz, black musicians approach to white music, white musicians approach to black music and hyronical aesthetic passion for anything that looks tropical and/or superpsychedelic. The dancefloor result of this big mess is a mix of Eddy Grant’s disco, R&S’ Techno and Switch house sound. The Bloody Beetroots showed me the holy path of disco dance loudness, which I’ll belong to forever.
And this is their lovechild….
