Since late February, Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo has been releasing teaser videos for a new mask he will be donning during his live and dj shows as The Bloody Beetroots. (check out the photos from his Milan show)
The Italian electro rock producer who is signed to Dim Mak (who Yolanda Be Cool recently signed to as well!) has finally unveiled what would be considered a Deadmau5 style upgrade but not quite as technically in sync with the show. The new upgrade in a way reminds me of my favorite cartoon ‘The Tick’. One can only wonder how the hell he sees what’s going on behind those giant LED lights.
A message from the now solo performance of Sir Bob:
“Hey Guys, the mask teasers have finished… you have seen the build up to creating this new object, it has been intense. I wanted to keep some characteristics of the old mask and improve the inherent detailing of a super hero mask.
It was rebuilt from nothing, materials specifically chosen. I improved the quality and the shape… the eyes are now a solid frame giving them definition like never before and the upper skin of the eye is populated with electronic circuits comprising of 200 nano LED bulbs to make it illuminate.
When the mask is bright, i become blind and have learnt to develop a sense of direction and an ability to play on stage in darkness surrounded by so much colour.
Kick ass and enjoy.”
