For Roberto Bates a touching song is not just a good beat, but also a strong melody. Roberto also had the new track “Fire Walk With Me” in his ear for a long time, but also on cassette. “Fire Walk With Me” was inspired by the work of US film director David Keith Lynch. The lyrics process the motifs of various Lynch productions and the music is a wonderful journey through time into the world of the 80s. So, get your magic cube out of your drawer, put on your headband and feel the beat of the 80s.
Roberto is influenced by the melodic rock of the 80s. “Minnesota Lakes” was his first work as a solo artist and with “Killer” Bates was at number one in the Swiss Dance Charts for six weeks in 2019 and at number six in the English Commercial Pop Charts. Both numbers are still played on the radio today.
**Roberto Bates was nominated in three categories (including EDM) at the German Songwriting Awards 2020. Also, he received a nomination for the composition section of the German Pop Foundation and won the second prize.
