Exclusive: Climbers remix Big Black Delta

Marcus Barnes

climbers 300x225 Exclusive: Climbers remix Big Black DeltaOne of my very favourite acts is the Climbers (AKA Jay Blakk and Kiko Deal) from Mexico. Over the past year or so I’ve kept a close eye on their progress, seeing them rise up from relative obscurity to make an impact across Europe and much of the world with their productions.

I was lucky enough to be handed a brand new remix of theirs exclusively which you can listen to below. It’s a track called Betamax by Big Black Delta and I had a brief chat with BBD (AKA Jonathan Bates) to coincide with the release of this exclusive stream.

How did your the love affair started of music start?

My father is a musician and when I was about 12 he walked into my room and announced that we had to find something I was good at. After embarrassing him and myself trying baseball, basketball, etc. I asked if I could try playing his guitar. It’s always been something I get very easily and enjoy.

How did you end up with your name?

Researching Ufology [the study of UFOs], studying astrophysics and watching UFO documentaries. Big Black Deltas are the most reported type of sighting. Plus Googling it leads to all kinds of pornography.

Tell me a little bit about the new single.

It’s a palette of muted colors with holes in it. A simple melody with naive recollection.

How did your US tour go?

It was one of the best times I’ve ever had. I feel I grew a lot by watching and seeing shit I’d otherwise not have access to. People actually dug it, so I don’t wish to jinx it by saying much more.

What else have you got coming up?

I’m coming back to the UK at the end of October to play some shows and I have a new release coming up. I’m always working on new music and remixes for other people. I wish to own a Dodge Challenger, so I’ll do whatever that entails.

BETAMAX – THE CLIMBERS REMIX by Big Black Delta
