House meets trap in new Night Owl Radio episode featuring Dr. Fresch and ATLiensAtliens Live In Honolulu

Insomniac CEO Pasquale Rotella has proven yet again that his ability to curate diverse top-notch electronic music acts is unmatched. Insomniac’s Night Owl Radio is back and better than ever with a brand new episode featuring The Prescription Records labelhead Dr. Fresch and masked extraterrestrials ATLiens.

First up is the man with a PhD in house music: Dr. Fresch. Dr. Fresch gets in the groove and selects this episode’s Up All Night tracks for the first hour and 15 minutes followed by an exclusive guest mix from trap and bass duo ATLiens. Hot off the success off their recent hit “Shelter” and massive remix album, Ghost Planet Remixes, these two hold nothing back in 40 minutes of head-banging bass.

If listeners enjoy the juxtaposition of house and trap created in this mix and want to see it again, this mix provides that opportunity. As the end of a decade quickly approaches, Dr. Fresch and ATLiens both have New Year’s Eve festival gigs locked and loaded at Countdown NYE Festival in San Bernardino, California.

Dr. Fresch and BIJOU release G-house heater, ‘Get Back’

G-house parters in crime Dr. Fresch and BIJOU have taken another job on their bouncing club thumper, “Get Back,” released on Tchami‘s CONFESSION label.

The pitbull with a heavy lock chain on the artwork is a good representation of the ferocity of the track that immediately hits with a sharp kick and fearless bassline. The vocals serve as a warning, with a Baltimore club loop repeating “bitch get back” for the contagious verse before being hit in the face with a fattened bassline and percussive vocals. Later on in the hook, a sprinkle of synths is used to lighten the atmosphere for a bit of a deep house touch to the G-house canvas. The second drop is worth the wait, as the vocal chops come at rapid rates.

“‘Get Back’ is no doubt a special record for us both!” Dr. Fresch says in a press release. “The real narrative is about two friends and artists coming back to their roots as G-House producers to make something that represents their true colors. I am so proud of this record. Ben and I sat down to create something that is truly, well, us. This record is us leaning into the sound that made us fall in love with who we are as artists. Also, as Ben pointed out to me the other week—we came kicking down the doors of 2019 with Kung Fu, and now 2020 is upon us and it’s time for us to ‘Get Back’ to our sound. I am so excited to deliver this record to our fans, and to be releasing it with CONFESSION—I have so much appreciation for Tchami and the whole team for getting behind our vision!”

“It was a very special week with Tony where ‘Get Back’ came to life,” BIJOU notes in the same release. “We were locked away in northern California with no internet, no phones, just the two of us having fun making the music that we love. Our goal with this one was to make the most banging G-House record that had ever been done. Once we had the baseline built out, the rest of the record came seamlessly and we knew we had a banger on our hands! After road testing at EDC the following week it was a done deal and we couldn’t wait to get this one out. I can’t be happier to make my CONFESSION debut with one of my best friends to cap off an amazing year!”

BIJOU started his own label this year, Do Not Duplicate Recordings, to merge the styles of infectious basslines carefully selected hip-hop vocals for a complementary merging of styles. The label ultimately seeks to showcases the rise of the G-house scene by the Phoenix native and Dr. Fresch.

Dr. Fresch and Volac offer up commanding new collaboration, ‘Filthy’

Dr. Fresch and Volac have proven their sonic union an incontrovertibly “Filthy” one. The aptly titled new number brings hip-hop-inflected house finesse to the underground. With Dread MC on the mic, the grating bass line gains a vigorous vocal overlay that can rightly assume credit for much of the track’s aural audacity. The cut’s gritty descents are in compelling contrast to the airy momentum heard in the song’s builds.

The track is an impressive emblem of the synergistic strand of G-house Dr. Fresch has built his fiery Prescription Records label housing upon; though this offering lands on another fiercely sought-after imprint. “Filthy” is out now via Tchami’s CONFESSION.

Producer Sessions 013: The Bloody Beetroots release a ‘Heavy’ extended play of new sounds [INTERVIEW]

Producer Sessions 013: The Bloody Beetroots release a ‘Heavy’ extended play of new sounds [INTERVIEW]Enlight329

Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, better known as the brainchild behind The Bloody Beetroots, has released his new Heavy EP. The Italian musician teased his new extended play with two collaborations: one with G-House hero, Dr. Fresch, called “Fkn Face,” that throws down as hard as the name implies and the other with Ephwurd, “Wildchild,” featuring heavy electro bass mayhem with guitar fills.

The Heavy EP is the first project since The Bloody Beetroot’s The Great Electronic Swindle in 2017, which merged rock elements with electronic music for a more electronic take on heavy metal.

Rifo took some to answer some questions about producing the EP.


What made you take the EP in this direction?

I felt the need to steer the project into a more electronic space. I love experimenting with new genres and finding a sound that belongs to me. That really resonates.

Did you have any inspirations for the album?

Just the music. It always drives me. I really explored with the new contemporary electronic texture and mixed it with the original TBB sound. I had a lot of fun.

What made you chose your collaborators?

Innovation and originality. The guys are on the EP are great!

Do you have a typical production process? If so, what is it?

I hate being in the studio for more than two hours a day. I’m a musician first and producer second, so all my ideas come by talking to people and living a life full of passions and hobbies. I start with a story, then I randomly mess around with synths and samplers on Ableton until I get a solid draft. That’s the foundation and I move from there.

What song took you the longest to make and why?

I don’t like to overthink it. I prefer to get straight to the point and feel it. The Heavy EP was quick to do. It’s simple, effective, and I wanted something to serve and support my DJ set. My collaborations with Dr. Fresch & Ephwurd were quick as well. They’re amazing producers with a lot of empathy for real music.

What was the most difficult melody to conquer and why?

I believe I spent more time with my graphic designers choosing the right artwork instead of overthinking on the perfect melody. I don’t know how to explain that, but music is very natural for me. It’s in my blood and it comes out so easily that i can’t even find the right words to express how I feel about it. It’s me, I guess.

What was your most memorable in-studio moment while producing the EP?

Definitely in the studio with Dr. Fresch. He didn’t have a functional keyboard to play. I was so bummed out, but he managed to make it work like a pro. Immediately following, I wrote that “Fkn Face” bassline with a smile on my face. Thank you, Tony.

Do you have any unique studio habits?

I like jamming before I start anything serious, and sometimes, I forget to open a session because I get lost in the jamming.

What hobbies do you have outside of music?

I have a second job as a photographer (thecultofrifo.com)—I’m also a certified CrossFit trainer Level 1. I like riding cars and motorbikes. Sometimes, I like to go to BBQs with friends.

What was it like creating the music you make in your in the small town of Bassano del Grappa?

I moved to LA three years ago, Venice Beach precisely as it feels like a small town. Bassano Del Grappa is where I spend my free time to recover from all this crazy business. It’s sane, it’s small, it’s cozy, and I love it.

What is your next endeavor as The Bloody Beetroots?

I’m excited to see where this new electronic journey will take me.

The Bloody Beetroots release ‘Fkn Face’ with Dr. Fresch

Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, better known as the The Bloody Beetroots frontman and the entity itself, is releasing his new Heavy EP on June 21. To tease the project’s unleashing, the Italian artist teamed up with G-House hero, Dr. Fresch, on a new collaboration, “Fkn Face.” The track follows the initial single from the EP, “Wildchild” with Ephwurd, taking Rifo’s curiosity toward the bass house space, specifically exploring G-House on this new release.

This extended play marks the first project since 2017’s The Great Electronic Swindle, which merged rock elements with electronic music for a modern take on heavy metal that takes the energy to the highest peaks. This Heavy project sounds like the masked enigma is following a more electronic direction, diving into the crevasse of high-energy bass music.
