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 Hawai’i, 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, 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.


Combining the rhythmic appeal of dubstep, hip hop, and house with melodic dreamscapes, creative sound design, and acoustic instrumentation, Futexture skillfully weaves a futuristic blend of glitchy bass-heavy IDM and jazzy techstep into a forward thinking sound that defies classification. Transcending the typical barriers between electronic and more traditional composition, this unique sonic synthesis is equally suited for both headphones and the dancefloor. Exceptional command over detail, depth of expression, and the ability to perform in a multitude of settings leaves the future looking very bright for this emerging artist.


"Listening to Kolourz is what I call a dizzying experience. While some of his tracks literally feel like an explosion of colors, others are just hypnotic. Usually combining compressed drum beats with mechanical sounds, his music is nothing but unique. He is one of the most experimental artists I have seen in the ambient/chillout genre, never failing to surprise you. At first you are like woahh what is this, and then you slowly sink into the track after which you just find yourself swimming in his beats. Slow smoothness with futuristic sounds deliver a bed of chillness in this one." In the words of a common man, you can say it’s ‘trippy shit!’ - (
