Supporting Acts: Random Rabbit, Futexture, Kolourz Bluetech
A classically trained pianist and master of the art of software production, Bluetech's love of melody and his exquisite sense of sound design makes him one of the most ingenious producers today. His sound emerges from custom-built software instruments and synthesizers and blossoms into a unique blend of idm, downtempo and electro-infused dub that encompasses musical styles from different parts of the globe. Ripe with emotive vistas, reflective passages and evocative depth Bluetech’s lush digital sound palate reflects on nature’s expression of being. Bluetech’s latest album, “Love Songs To The Source” (Interchill Records, 2010), employs a more dub-wise and organic sound than on his previous releases. With the addition of live instrumentalists and vocalists, such as Dr. Israel, Katrina Blackstone, and Tina Malia, listeners are presented with an inviting point of departure into the warm, spacious realms of his signature mid and down-tempo electronica. In addition to “Love Songs To The Source,” Bluetech has four releases on the internationally acclaimed Aleph Zero Records, as well as releases on Somnia Sound, Waveform Records, Thoughtless Music and his own Native State imprint. Following the release of his legendary 2005 full-length “Sines and Singularities” the New York Times labeled Bluetech “one of the best ambient artists.” He has toured extensively throughout the United States, as well as performing in Japan, UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, France, Denmark, Mexico, and Canada.
