It was at this point that Ott found his first work as an engineer in several studios around North London. Working obsessively, 18 hours a day, seven days a week for the next ten years, Ott developed his engineer skills working with artists such as Brian Eno, The Orb, Youth, African Head Charge, Steve Hillage, and On-U-Sound.
After mastering his studio skills, Ott celebrated the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st by giving it all up and moving to a remote cottage in South West England to be alone with his cats and his studio. Here he embarked on a series of sonic experiments, drawing heavily on the classic dub sounds from Jamaica and hypnotic electronic pulse from Germany which had provided such a refuge during the 1980′s. A period of intense creativity followed, during which a great many tracks were created and then stashed away on tapes.
In the meantime, Ott hatched a plan to remix half a dozen or so classic Hallucinogen trance tracks and release them as dub mixes – slower, fatter and more chillout friendly. In 2002 the album “Hallucinogen in Dub” was released via Twisted Records to universal acclaim. Buoyed by the success of “Hallucinogen in Dub”, the following years to come would see Ott gather together and release his sonic experiments on Twisted Record as the albums “Blumenkraft” and “Skylon”, as well as a whirl of gigs around the world, remixes for Shpongle, Entheogenic, Tripswitch, and collaborative projects like Umberloid (with Chris Barker) and Gargoyles (with Simon Posford). During this time, Ott travelled the word, got married, welcomed his daughter Daisy to the world and recorded his fourth album, which he self released in 2011, entitled ‘Mir’.
2012 saw the launch of Ott’s collaborative live band ‘Ott & the All-Seeing I’. After two North American tours and the release of a live DVD/Blu-Ray from a sold out show at Terminal West in Atlanta, the band has hit the studio to work on a release tentatively scheduled for late 2014.
A classically trained pianist and master of the art of software
production, Bluetech's love of melody and his exquisite sense of
sound design makes him one of the most ingenious producers today.
His sound emerges from custom-built software instruments and
synthesizers and blossoms into a unique blend of idm, downtempo
and electro-infused dub that encompasses musical styles from
different parts of the globe. Ripe with emotive vistas, reflective
passages and evocative depth Bluetech's lush digital sound palate
reflects on nature's expression of being.
Bluetech's latest album, "Love Songs To The Source"
(Interchill Records, 2010), employs a more dub-wise and organic
sound than on his previous releases. With the addition of live
instrumentalists and vocalists, such as Dr. Israel, Katrina Blackstone,
and Tina Malia, listeners are presented with an inviting point of
departure into the warm, spacious realms of his signature mid and
In addition to "Love Songs To The Source," Bluetech has four
releases on the internationally acclaimed Aleph Zero Records, as well
as releases on Somnia Sound, Waveform Records, Thoughtless
Music and his own Native State imprint. Following the release of his
legendary 2005 full-length "Sines and Singularities" the New York
Times labeled Bluetech "one of the best ambient artists." He has
toured extensively throughout the United States, as well as
performing in Japan, UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, Australia, New
Zealand, Croatia, France, Denmark, Mexico, and Canada.
