The Bloody Beetroots - Best Of... Remixes
And you thought the baddest thing to come out of Italy was Silvio Berlusconi... With their apparent desire to make dance music that rocks, The Bloody Beetroots sound like that country's answer to Justice. These 18 remixes for other artists aren’t for the faint-hearted. Only their fine krautrock-ish take on Robyn’s 'Cobrastyle' takes the foot off the accelerator. Their remix of Sound Of Stereo’s 'Heads Up!' also stands out; alternating between euphoric synths and rough bass sections, it captures the spirit of old rave. The biggest criticism one can level at this collection is that the duo could do with expanding their box of tricks, but otherwise there’s enough bludgeoningly noisy and chaotic material here to make for a recommendation.
