Meet BATES BELK III, aka BB3, an American producer and sound designer with a unique view on dance music. After a long spanning corporate career in New York, he made the bold move to Berlin earlier this year. A visa gives him the freedom to experiment, connect with fellow artists of various disciplines, and to work on his long anticipated debut album.
Whereas Techno is a genre that is mostly instrumental, Bates ambitions to make music with a message. He introduces a philosophical thinking to the dance floor with his approach to a philosophical Trichotomy on life featured on two new EPs entitled the Life Trichotomy EP an the Life Trichotomy Reincarnated EP. The latter contains songs from the Life Trichotomy EP that have been remixed by other artists including underground American Techno pioneer Abe Duque and American Hip Hop and Techno futurist Astrolith.
Bates: “Like many major philosophers such as Plato, Plotinus, Aquinas, Kant, Socrates, Hegel and Freud who have put forth philosophical principles in groups of three, I wanted to follow that principle with my take on Techno. Each of the two EPs contain three songs conveying life lessons from the beginning of life, the middle of life and the end of life.
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.
I’m incredibly fortunate that I am able to leave the US, that I’m strong enough to pick up and move to a new country and environment as I continue to push myself creatively. Berlin is filled with many many many talented people that I am learning from, that I am collaborating with and that are contributing to my art. It’s a community that is filled with like-minded artists for me and I’m going to soak it in while it lasts! It’s the perfect place to finish my debut album and certainly less intense than New York. I felt I really needed that change. When the album is finished, it should feel like a futuristic film soundtrack with varying BPMs and orchestral arrangements. Ultimately I envision to having a full blown stage show for this project complete with custom visuals and a live orchestra.”

Fiin Teams Up With Brigado Crew & Jinadu For Driving Dark Progressive Single
Miami artist Fiin returns to Ultra Records with “Still In The Storm”, his next single on the label in collaboration with Argentinian duo Brigado Crew and British singer Jinadu. Fiin’s underground influenced style manifests in deep, driving basslines formed from a classic “four on the floor” rhythm. “Still In The Storm” is the kind of track that is right at home in dark basement clubs or intimate Techno festival stages. Haunting vocals from Jinadu and shaker-infused melodies bring an otherworldly element to “Still In The Storm,” making this dark progressive gem with depth a sophisticated production. Fiin previously released on Ultra Records multiple times, including his debut single on the label “Calling Out” also with Jinadu, while Brigado Crew has released on Stil vor Talent, Diynamic, Katermukke, and more.
Fiin has been taking the Miami electronic music scene by storm as one of its youngest and most promising up-and-comers. His weekly “Relic” party at 1-800-Lucky every Sunday had become a staple in the community and served as a closing ceremony to the city’s vibrant music scene. He cut his teeth as the youngest resident of Heart Nightclub. He played alongside some world-class DJs, including the opportunities to go b2b with Paco Osuna, Butch, Hot Since 82, Technasia, and more. In 2019 he played gigs through North America, Europe, and South America at BPM Festival, WMC, Lost Circus, to name a few. Known for his daredevil, risk-taking production style, we have no doubt that this is only the beginning of a very exciting journey for Fiin.
