Peace Through Music with Bluetech

Broadcast on August 12, 2014
With Bluetech (a.k.a. Evan Bartholomew)

Evan Bartholomew a.k.a. Bluetech describes himself as a "foolish lovestruck mystic who is starting to see the Divine everywhere." He transcends the constructs normally associated with a calculated “electronic artist” by contributing to the health of our planet in important ways, such as creating a solar powered studio and dedicating his Critical Beats imprint to preserving and protecting Earth’s remaining rainforests. Beyond creating beautiful downtempo, future bass, and progressive electronic music, Bluetech makes music with meaning and purpose.

Bluetech (a.k.a. Evan Bartholomew)

Musician, Designer, Leader in the Down-Tempo Audio Movement

Burrowing into liminal space, that forgotten zone between the organic and the inorganic, reality and surreality, that’s the place Bluetech calls home. Boundless cosmic beats stretch out across sprawling ambient soundscapes. Melodic strings pluck and shimmer; echoing voices expand and contract over the electronic landscape. You can’t pin down Evan Bartholomew, and there’s no sense trying. Over a decade of releases has brought Bluetech’s music to fans of downtempo, future bass, and progressive electronic music, rife with emotional intent, and polyrhythmic percussion. From his homebase in the far-flung islands of Hawaii, Bartholomew transcends the constructs normally associated with a calculated “electronic artist,” pursuing music with meaning and purpose. Choosing to spend his off-stage time meticulously tweaking precision productions, building the solar-powered studio of his dreams, running his music and arts webzine Nomadculture.net, or putting in time on his Critical Beats imprint—dedicated to preserving and protecting Earth’s remaining rainforests—Evan shirks preconceptions of fellow superstar producers.
