TUNE Bates Belk - Euphoria
Bates Belk Releases New Dance EP “Euphoria” Celebrating Gender and Sexual Fluidity on October 18, 2019 on BB3 Dynamics Records.
Written in Berlin, the music producer has brought together gender and sexually fluid Berlin-based artists creating a positive and in-your-face message for freedom. With a classic high-energy acid house vibe, the electronic dance EP salutes all the people in the world whom stand for the resisting of gender and sexual oppression and whom represent sex positivity. Taking recorded field sound samples of euphoric voices of gender-bending clubgoers and acclaimed free-thinking Berlin-based performance artists at such legendary Berlin alternative cult parties like the Gegen Party at KItKatKlub, the CockTail d’Amore Party at Griessmuehle Club, the Buttons Party at ://about blank Club and the Pornceptual Party at Alte Münze Club, Bates created lively and anthemic energy for “Euphoria”…taking inspiration from all the unique people that performed on the song.
The “Euphoria” EP also contains two new dance B-sides and one new club remix of the title track. “Euphoria” is the first single to be released from Bates Belk’s debut album, entitled "The Dark Spektrum" that is due for release in early 2020. The album contains collaborations with over 50 Berlin-based artists, and was mixed by renowned Depeche Mode, Erasure and Interpol music producer Gareth Jones.
