The rise of producers with an intriguing auras and hidden personas has had a great history of such names which includes the story lines of post-2015 sensation Marshmello and the legendary Daft Punk duo. At the intersection of this snippet of Dance music history and Romanophilic romance, we find Caesar Augustvs Bassus III, a producer better known by their shortened moniker CAB III. While just beginning his career in the dance music world, the emperor-like persona donned by a CAB III is a real interesting one in this queer world of DJ/producer names and alter-egos. On the production front, CAB III is now on the chart to impress listeners with his debut track titled ‘Circles’.
‘Circles’ is a sturdy debut production from the relatively new producer. It begins with a pitch perfect foundation, laid in a gradual manner through scintillating and detailed chords and a creeping beat-work. All of this gives way to phased out vocals which build the space for the track to break into a rough ‘drop’ which impresses with its chic beat-work and unending, steady energy. A debut release on Radhaz Records, ‘Circle’ also marks the beginning of CAB III’s career in the world of dance music. While his alter-egos and persona are already up there, we would certainly not be wrong to hope for similar stature for his future productions.
