His first full-length release, Autopirate (Muti Music, 2008) charted and continues to sell strongly. His upcoming triple album The
ill.Methodology and accompanying online course are highly anticipated. Gates was recently selected as one of the Next 100 by URB Magazine.

DELTAnine started as a duo of producers, Chris Beck and Chris Honsberger, from Baltimore, MD. that have an endless devotion to creating jamtronica music. Their combined sound is derived from years of different musical projects, DJing nightclubs and house parties, proficiency with multiple acoustic and electronic instruments, and the acquired knowledge of electronic music production. Formed in late 2011, DELTAnine have opened for acts like Conspirator, Damn Right!, The Werks, Dirtyphonics and Smash Gordon, to name a few. In 2012 the duo, with their live shows in mind, decided to add guitar player Ben Kolakowski to the line-up. The release of their first full-length album is quickly approaching and is going to hit the jamtronica scene hard. The future has a lot to come for this diverse trio.
