Finally got around to posting this up on the Digital Dancefloor…
DJ Tommy Tea took the wheels early and warmed the crowd up with a solo show on the decks. It was a wham-bam set, cut after cut after cut; the only thing burning down faster than the playlist were the cigarettes… This man smokes ‘em like a true European!
The DJ set was dubstep-heavy with dirty breaks, electro house, and some other experimental ‘ish rolled in for flavor… The crowd loved the Deadmau5 cut and the remix of “In for the Kill” but they didn’t seem to know what to make of the Radiohead remix… Kids nowadays; Nothing more disappointing than people who only dig what’s popular, right? And that’s not a knock on dubstep… Well, actually it is. Anyway, the crowd was hyped for it, an army of arm-waving fans not so much dancing as doing their slow-motion head-banging thing. Dig?
Ever seen the live show? No? Put it on your bucket list. The show is that good! It’s hard to label the sound, but electronicore is probably safest. Take a Sid Vicious attitude, cook in some heavy synths, shoot up with some blazing guitar riffs, and pepper liberally with an aggressive drumbeat… Don’t forget to pin the ‘Anarchy’ patch on the back of your jacket. It’s electronica meets punk. Live PA, live drums, live guitars. If you could bottle energy and sell it as music, this would be it. Sir Bob calls their sound the “new post punk of the modern electro era”… Obviously it’s best not to try too hard to classify the Bloody Beetroots – Death Crew 77. But one thing everyone can agree on: They are loud!
