How Plato And Socrates Prove An Inspiration To Modern Day Techno
Introducing Philosophical Thinking To The Dance Floor

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.”

Italian Techno DJ Recovering After Being Stabbed By His Own Father

Italian Techno DJ Joseph Capriati
Italian Techno DJ Joseph Capriati recovers from a stab wound to the chest after a heated argument with his father. Fortunately, the injuries didn’t cause a perforation in his lungs. The confusing incident occurred last Friday at his parents’ home. It is not our business to delve into the family/private problems of artists, however, it is a painful fact not to have the support of a loved one. Of course, this is offset by the infinite love of his millions of loyal followers.

Capriati’s team recently confirmed his rapid recovery in a hospital near the city of Naples.

The Italian Techno DJ who resides in Spain, traveled to his hometown for the holidays to visit his family. Sadly, his reception was steamed with blood. So far, it is known that his father (a 61-year-old retired police officer) has been arrested for attempted murder. Justice will have the last word to clarify this unprecedented event.

Important update, Capriati forgives his father:

AINT Site
AINT
is a promising new producer from London. He shares with us one of his recent Downtempo Techno cuts, entitled “Site. From start to end, I would dare to say it is smoothly captivating. Without question, it has been designed to sonically transport you to a parallel dimension.

Its dreamy aspect entices listeners due to the minimal hypnotic sounds on repeat. Furthermore, you can expect a fusion of tranquil oriental-style Ambient music and futuristic soundscapes reminiscent of Vangelis. On top of everything, the artist also has a deep love for Hard Techno and Electro. This means he is on a constant musical expedition and beyond his experimental approach, variety always offers more advantages.

His influences range from Umwelt, James Shinra, Helena Hauff to SAAH, and High Future. AINT may not be on the underground music world’s radar yet, but soon he will bring more surprises to the table. Get more updates on his socials below.
