RiMS Racing is designed for two-wheeled enthusiasts in mind combining driving and mechanics that offers a true simulation of riding some of the fastest bikes in the world. In addition to the six new tracks, The Bloody Beetroots also curated music for the entire game using various selections from all his albums Romborama, Hide and The Great Electronic Swindle.
“The main elements that pushed and inspired me to direct and create the sound of RiMS are speed and adrenaline. I really enjoyed working on this video game because it brought back that nostalgic feel of being a kid again and having so much excitement when I got a new game to play, and not being able to put the controller down. I was able to express that adrenaline rush that I felt back then, along with the thrill of riding actual motorbikes. So much fun!,” says the Bloody Beetroots. “Talking about The Bloody Beetroots, motorcycles and video games is like speaking the same language on different disciplines.”
Alongside the soundtrack release, RiMS Racing is offering The Bloody Beetroots downloadable content (DLC) which will be free for all players on all platforms between October 29 and October 31 at 7pm CET (until November 1 at 7pm CET on Steam).

RiMS Racing will be available for free on PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S: from October 29 (7pm CEST) to November 1 (7pm CET), with a limited access of three hours.

About The Bloody Beetroots
The Bloody Beetroots is the creation of Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo. Inspired by his lifelong love of punk rock and comic books, Rifo unleashed The Bloody Beetroots in late 2006 and has since crafted an intense sound that mixes his classical training, his punk rock obsession and his passion for electronic music into an edgy rock-meets-dance hybrid sound. The Bloody Beetroots first exploded on the scene via his 2009 critically acclaimed debut album Romborama featuring the iconic track “Warp 1.9.” with Steve Aoki, both of which helped launch the American EDM boom at the end of the 2000s. His 2013 sophomore album Hide featured crossover tracks with rock icons and alternative stars like Sir Paul McCartney, Tommy Lee and others. Rifo’s third full-length album The Great Electronic Swindle (2017), continued the electronic-rock narrative via collaborations with Perry Farrell, JET, Gallows, Deap Vally and more. In 2019, The Bloody Beetroots released the Heavy EP, which sees Rifo revisiting his classic electro style. 2021 has been a great year for Rifo releasing singles with artists such as Teddy Killerz and Jericho, as well as a collaborative project with Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morrello called The Catastrophists EP.
