Last October, BB3 DYNAMICS (Bates Belk III) surprised the dance music world with the Life Trichotomy EP. It contained three songs conveying life lessons from the beginning of life, the middle of life and the end of life. Now he’s back with the Life Trichotomy Reincarnated – The Remixes EP which contains songs from the Life Trichotomy EP that have been remixed by other artists.
Like many major philosophers such as Plato, Plotinus, Aquinas, Kant, Socrates, Hegel and Freud who have put forth philosophical principles in groups of three, BB3 Dynamics follows that trichotomy principle with his unique take on techno
The Life Trichotomy Reincarnated – The Remixes EP is a true listening pleasure. American Techno pioneer Abe Duque takes on ‘Inception.’ He keeps the minimalist styling of the original in tact and slowly builds a smooth groove reminding of some of the best works from the early days of techno. With blissful but monotone strings in the background, an infectious 303-esque loop takes the lead along with the deep vocal from the original.
French experimentalist Mëtël EkTõshi takes matters slightly more upbeat with his remix of ‘Transformation.’ The result is a very minimal remixed arrangement that takes the dancer through an abstract dance floor journey.
American Hip Hop and Techno boundary-pusher Astrolith takes it all to a surprising climax. His remix of ‘Culmination’ goes on a 2015 classic electro trip. Sure to destroy any self respecting dance floor around.
So what was the story behind the tracks?
BB3 Dynamics: “The first song in the Trichotomy, entitled Inception, communicates the importance of not holding back at the beginning of life. Take chances while you’re young and don’t be timid with your choices. Don’t be afraid to fail.
The second song in the Trichotomy, entitled Transformation, communicates the importance of being in control as one moves through life. You will have positive and negative experiences throughout. Yet, you are the only one to give these a proper place.
And the third and final song in the Trichotomy, entitled Culmination, communicates the importance of letting oneself be free as one prepares for one’s next lifetime at the end of a current life. By the time I reach “Culmination” in terms of living and breathing, I want to be able to, in my head, know I took as many risks as I could, that I was advanced enough as a human to question the norm, that I could relate to as many different human lives and their journeys as much as possible, that I was able to forgive and that I was prepared for my next adventure.”
BB3 Dynamics recently left the USA for a move to Berlin where he is actively collaborating with many talented artists from multiple disciplines. He currently is working on his debut album that contains contributions from several global musicians and vocalists. The album is planned to feel like a futuristic film soundtrack that sends the listener on a dark journey with a production that includes atmospheric electronic sounds and a full orchestral score.
BB3 Dynamics: “Ultimately I envision to having a full blown stage show for this project complete with custom visuals and a live orchestra.”

Solomun Puts A Spin On Novaa & Lie Ning’s “Novaacation”
Hailing from Germany, Novaa is a singer-songwriter who is gaining worldwide acclaim. The good news is that Solomun contributes his expertise to her latest tune, “Novaacation” by skillfully amplifying its danceable essence through a hypnotic remix.
Novaa achieved visibility in 2019 when her debut album earned her the New Music Award. Last year, she further solidified her status by receiving the Pop Culture Award for Favorite Producer and the Female Producer Award. Indeed, her discography includes three additional albums, and the last one features the track “The World’s Thing” for the 2023 Dior Mitzah campaign.
Furthermore, her upcoming fifth studio album, ‘SUPER NOVAA,’ set to release in October, will include the original version of “Novaacation,” which is a contemporary, urban, and deeply entrancing Indie Pop song.
In both variations, Novaa’s vocals harmonize seamlessly with those of Lie Ning, creating a perfect blend of expression and rhythm. Without a doubt, this seductive quality of “Novaacation” will catch your attention straight away.
Evidently, Solomun transforms the beats by quadrupling, breaking, and redoubling them, and therefore reinventing something fresh. Also, the remix incorporates elements of Electronica and Techno, resulting in a multi-layered composition where percussion assumes a central role.
Well, here you have another outstanding production by creative people that merits repeated listening.

A Sick Techno Banger! “Diamonds On My Mind” By Eli Brown
In today’s sea of underground music, Eli Brown surprises everyone with “Diamonds On My Mind,” a sick Techno banger that really stands out. This is his third single this year, and he’s on fire right now even on TikTok!
Interestingly, his ravey tracks got some spotlight during Calvin Harris’ main gigs at Coachella. Besides that, DJs like John Summit and Dom Dolla have been testing “Diamonds On My Mind” on their DJ sets too, pulling you into an energetic euphoria of powerful sounds, sexy vocals, and a minimalist beat.
What’s more, the lyrics remind you to work hard and play hard, making it a perfect tune to wrap up the last days of summer.
No doubt, when I talk about the sound of a sick Techno banger on “Diamonds On My Mind,” I’m referring to its pulsating beats and deep basslines that reverberate through your body. Obviously, this feels like a relentless rhythm that keeps you moving on the dancefloor.
On a side note, Eli Brown had a super successful tour in the UK, rocked the stages at EDC Las Vegas and Toronto Veld Music Festival, and guess what? He’s heading to LA this November for his biggest solo show ever.
