Lorde became the youngest solo artist to achieve a number-one single in the US with Royals, since Tiffany’s I Think We’re Alone Now (1987).
Flume began creating music at the age of thirteen, with a basic production disc that was packaged in a box of cereal.
One-On-One with Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo
Italian frontman Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo of the electro-punk group The Bloody Beetroots describes his memorable collaboration experiences with music legends Paul McCartney, Peter Frampton and Tommy Lee.
Rifo believes all music sounds the same these days – artists fail to study or do research anymore. The answers, he says, are all back in the days with masterminds like McCartney, Frampton and Lee.
Rifo‘s current project is operating under the pseudonym SBCR on Dim Mak Records. Sir Bob stated his newest venture will allow for the reshaping of the future of The Bloody Beetroots.
