There are some electronic composers of the modern day that hold an intention so pure, so clear & conscious – and know how to communicate this through their music. Evan Bluetech is one of these sacred sonic artists. I’ll never forget when I first heard his sound. Naasko (Interchill Records) began playing some of Bluetech’s sublime dubby sounds from his upcoming first album Prima Materia at Submerge Chill Festival in 2005 here in Australia – I was instantly hooked. The sound was intelligent, hypnotic and so very unique. I dropped him an email expressing my interest in his sound – Prima Materia was released a little later & so began the journey of Bluetech. I’ve avidly followed Evan’s sonic journey over the years as he’s released his five stellar albums as Bluetech, and countless other releases as Evan Bartholomew & Evan Marc. It was great to finally meet him when he finally graced our shores this past summer, and I felt honored to play side by side with him at Rainbow Serpent Festival. His presence & personality are just as brilliant as the otherwordly deep melodics he creates, as you will see from the interview that follows. A pioneer in the IDM & downbeat realms, I look forward to hearing what sonic gifts he will present next. Evan currently resides in Hawaii, and I was lucky enough to catch up with him online during his busy tour schedule for his latest release “Divine Invasion” on Aleph-Zero Records…

Since being told by the Aleph Zero guys that a promo was on its way I was very excited to know what Evan was going to come up with on the third Bluetech album. I had heard the samples and to be honest couldn’t really tell if this was going to meet my high expectations. I can honestly  say that it did and more! Evan has managed to bring together the original Bluetech sound, and yet at the same time come up with something completly new….

Hibernation – Some Things Never Change Review

hibernation

Deeply chilled electronic instrumentals. Some Things Never change is a powerfully immersive experience of multi-coloured electronica, lush sound collaging and imaginative downtempo beats. Literally brimming with a wide variety of synthetic sounds, liquid effects and a generous scattering of glitchy percussives, Hibernation comes across as a highly detailed, many-hued construction that somehow manages at the same time to convey an inviting sleepy effortlessness.
