Following a massive 2015, SBCR (Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo) aka The Bloody Beetroots is back with the third installation of his EP trilogy: SBCR & Punks: Vol. 3. Each volume sees Bob rounding up his favorite musicians (whom he labels his Friends, Adversaries, and Punks) for unique collaborations. Speaking on punk, Bob once told GQ, “I think it’s related to my lifestyle – the extreme desire to break the mold at any cost.” As someone known for pushing boundaries, often via creative collaborations (see “Out of Sight” feat. Sir Paul McCartney, “Please Baby” feat. P-Thugg of Chromeo, and “Warp” feat. Steve Aoki), he takes this ethos to heart, as he breaks down any and all preconceived notations with this three part project.
Across five booming records on Vol. 3, we hear the dance punkster get mischievous with the likes of TWNTYMLS, Tai, and Signal Noize.
Underscored throughout the EP are all the classic elements SBCR’s
productions are known for – gritty bass, scattered percussion, grimy
synths and rock-heavy guitar plucks. The first single, “Guillotine,” embodies the larger body, kicking things off with double time instrumentation and a timeless, head banging drop.
Getting back to his roots, Bob is excited to share with the world this
final installment, the punk edition. Fans can hear the new songs live
this March on Dim Mak stages at SXSW and Miami Music Week.
According to Bob, “This journey, through three EPs, lasted more than 14 months. Thanks
to Dim Mak, Steve Aoki and my die-hard fans for supporting this genre
rollercoaster. It’s been really productive to get out of my comfort
zone, creating something diverse and really inspiring. ”
