Rifoki is a hardcore duo composed of Steve Aoki and Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo. In another world, they're better known as DJs and producers. Aoki is the founder of Dim Mak Records, and Rifo is half of the Italian electronic and dance outfit The Bloody Beetroots.
In my world, I like to imagine things differently. I like to imagine that, before they got into dance music, they were into hardcore, and that one day they decided to set aside their turntables and walk away from the dance clubs. They looked back at their punk rock roots and realized it was still worth exploring, and reinvented themselves, more powerful than ever, as hardcore outfit Rifoki.
Fortunately for all of us, my powers are so great that sometimes the world I want to visualize becomes reality, so here's "Sperm Donor," an MP3 off the band's self-titled EP, due out on March 9. It's pretty nice. In a brutal way.
That worked out so well, let's test my powers of visualizations a little further. Not only should Rifoki embrace hardcore, but they should also embrace horror movies, and make a video influenced by them. Bam! Here's the trailer for their upcoming video for the song "Zombie Attack."
Now I just need to figure out what sort of musical awesomeness I want to wish into existence next...
