LONDON, UK (Top40 Charts/ Bang On PR) To celebrate the first official release from Big Black Delta, the brainchild of Jonathan Bates (Mellowdrone) (9th July), the band are releasing a series of remixes of 'IFUCKINGLOVEYOU'. The first offering is from none other than London based producer, Throwing Snow.

Listen here -

'IFUCKINGLOVEYOU' is an ambient, electronic, industrial mash up of a track and serves as the perfect taster for what Big Black Delta have in store on their debut album out later this year.

But Big Black Delta doesn't simply begin and end with the music - from the explosive live show featuring dueling female drummers (Mahsa Zargaran and Amy Wood), live vocals, dancing and an orchestrated light show using visual elements of the bespoke album artwork (created by Jonathan himself and creative director Caspar Newbolt), this project is an audio visual assault to the senses in the best possible way.

No stranger to pushing boundaries, LA based Bates was until recently the driving force behind alt. rock favourites Mellowdrone, has been heavily involved in M83's live and studio sound and has also worked with the likes of White Sea among others.

After leaving Mellowdrone in 2010, Bates bought a laptop from close friend Alessandro Cortini (Nine Inch Nails, SONOIO) and began sound-designing and circuit-bending. This musical re-discovery, combined with Bates' favourite dinner table conversation, UFO folklore lead to the creation of Big Black Delta.

In 2011 Jonathan posted a number of his original tracks as free downloads on his official website. Due to overwhelming demand for the tracks, he decided to form his own label; aptly named 'Masters Of Bates' so he could put out his own music and 'IFUCKINGLOVEYOU' is now set to be the first release.

Having supported M83 live on tour this year in the US, BBD will open Summerfest for Welsh indie favourites Joy Formidable with more summer dates soon to be confirmed.

"If you didn't have standard pop music as a reference, what would your pop music sound like?" Jonathan Bates asked himself this very question, and the answer, he found through his discovery of his solo project, Big Black Delta.

IFUCKINGLOVEYOU digital bundle, remixes, 7inch and 12 inch will be available on 9th July.
Album to follow later this year.
All on the newly formed Masters of Bates label.
