All Music Guide:
Evan Bartholomew, under the moniker Bluetech, produces his unique style of experimental noise from San Diego, CA. Classically trained on the piano for public performing, Bartholomew deviated from the traditional sounds and began to express the rhythms that sprouted from within him, and Bluetech was born. This resulted in his interpretation of nature's expression of being, a sound that is dronal ambient, downtempo, improvisational. He devoured the electronic potentials for musical expression and conveyed it in IDM, digidub, and psychedelic trance.
Bartholomew created and runs his own art collective in San Diego and does commercial sound design and production for both national and regional clients. He also writes and produces his own songs. "The Rubicon", "Prayers For Rain", and "Mezzamorphic" originally appeared on an EP released by Truffle Records, and brought the name Bluetech to a larger audience. In September 2003, these songs appeared on Bluetech's first album, Prima Materia, released by Waveform Records.
Bluetech is Evan Bartholomew (born 1976 or 1977) - a psybient DJ/producer who creates a varied selection of downtempo music. Bluetech's music is very diverse, even for a psybient artist. He places significant emphasis on melody in his productions, and his works often demonstrate an influence from dub and ambient techno.
Although Bluetech's music includes some "organic" samples, it is created mostly using digital synthesizers and production software, giving a very "digital" quality to it, much like the glitch inspired sounds of Shulman, who has also released albums through Aleph Zero Records.
After the release of "Sines & Singularities" in 2005, Bluetech has also been releasing albums under the names Evan Marc and Evan Bartholomew.
Bluetech's first track was released on Truffle Records in 2003. Since then Bluetech has released tracks on a number of other labels.
In 2004 Bluetech launched his own label, Native State Records.
