Bluetech’s five track EP Spacehop Chronicles Vol 1 topped bandcamp charts with over 65% of the album sold out before it was released, topping the music charts at both Bandcamp and Kickstarter, where the project was funded. He will hit the road for a few scattered dates this spring before setting out on the festival circuit this summer.
The campaign for the digital EP was wildly successful rising to the top as the most popular of music project on Kickstarter.com (the world’s largest funding platform), and continues to rank as the top electronic music project of 2014. Through private donations and the success of the campaign on Kickstarter.com, Bluetech raised an incredible $21,500 almost 3 times his initial goal of $7,250. Additional funds will be used to create a visual storyboard, limited-edition vinyl and the on-going production of the yearlong multi-volume release. With over 115,000 Last.fm listeners tuning in regularly, Bluetech’s underground fanbase continues to grow as new generations of electronic music listeners seek a more contemplative sound.
Just one of 18 consecutive albums, Bluetech is known in underground circles as one of the best ambient producers of our age, embracing a heart-on-his-sleeve approach. Capturing the lost art of album production, Spacehop Chronicles Vol 1 was written to be listened to from end to end, carrying the listener along the way through a series of dreamlike visions, moving storylines and plenty of spirited dance ready tracks. The entire volume will be released throughout 2014 unveiling one storyline carrying a common thread.
Known best for marching to the beat of his own drummer, has seduced fans with his unique take on downtempo, future bass, and progressive electronic music. Rife with emotional intent, and polyrhythmic percussion, Bluetech is revered for producing honest music that is as deep as it is moving. There’s no bravado, no boasting; just the gentle tendrils of careful composition stretching and seeking; awakening, inspiring, and delighting fans across the country and around the world.
