I think i may have been going slightly overboard with my love of The Bloody Beetroots at the moment but believe me they justify my love (no Madonna pun intended).
The Italian duo finally got round to releasing their debut album “Romborama” on the 21st August. It features a good mix of new tracks, live favourites and some songs from their earlier EPs. The first single was Cornelius, followed by Warp 1.9 (which i posted in an earlier blog) and now they’re releasing “Awesome” which features vocals from The Cool Kids. It’s definitely one of the most commercially viable songs on the album and could see them finally break onto “popular” daytime radio. The Bloody Beetroots have, however, scratched the surface of the mainstream before, after all, they did of course gain notoriety for their brilliant remix of Timbaland “Miscommunication” and have since done a selection of remixes for a diverse list of artsits including the likes and dislikes of Robyn, The Kills, All American Rejects, Wu Tang Clan, The Killers, Benny Benassi and Alpabeat and many many more. But “Awesome” could hopefully see them take that next step and break out of the underground.
Here’s the new promo video for “Awesome”
There’s a lot of people who prefer bands/DJ’s that they like to stay underground/unknown (for whatever reason) and as soon as they get radio airplay these “fans” will accuse them of “selling out” but i’m not one of those types. If the Beetroots make it big it’s because they deserve to and because their music and production skills are THAT good. Best of luck to them.
