03 Aug Basement Dubs EP
“In my efforts to be an example of change in the way I approach and utilize technology in my art, I am attempting to convert my work space to a solar powered studio. Funds raised from the sale of this EP will go towards this goal, and your support is greatly appreciated” – Bluetech
Native State Records is proud announce a new EP from label creator Bluetech. Blending his signature digital melodic style with rooted low end and hyper-detailed sound design, this EP is a 34 minute teaser into the creative mind of one of today’s most respected downtempo producers.
Containing 3 remixes and 2 originals, ‘Basement Dubs’ gives a taste of both of the forward thinking downtempo dancefloor worlds to be featured on the upcoming full length album ‘Illuminated Gates’, as well as some of the emotionally resonant ambient soundscapes that are contained on the impending full length release ‘Dreaming Into Being’.
Opening track ‘Abakus – Cruise Control (Bluetech Remix)’ establishes the territory with strong dubwise 70 BPM digitalia, before leading in to the moody and atmospheric futuristisms of ‘Basement Dub’. Elsewhere, ‘Adham Shaikh – Carpet Breaker (Bluetech Remix)’ explores a future bass take on some serious gypsy funk, flirting with the listener through plucked strings and psychedelic arpeggios before the break, finally busting forward in a polychromatic orgy of jacked gypsy stabs and tweaked grooves. Closing up the EP, ‘Thrios’ and ‘Midnight Sound Service – Imperium In Imperio (Bluetech Remix)’ fills in the dual poles of Bluetech’s love of forward thinking dancefloor beats and slowly evolving spacial ambience.
