Bluetech - The Divine Invasion


Recommended Posts

Na I find it more, like going on my nerves, actually.

euhh and what about a golden ratio?

how can it get on your nerves? you must not listen to a lot to upbeat then, cause its simple complexely amzing, you like simple things then? like rather then making yourself a spaghetti sauce, you like buying already made sauce? lol im just kiddin, oh well, those two songs are really something IMO golden rration and swimming, maybe it get on your nerves, which i can understand, but i really think its one of the most complex song ive heard in my life.

The only one that get on my nerves is Swimming. Other tracks are fine but, nothing special to my ears. Actually I made pasta bolognese today, X-tra garlic! Handmade, sauce! Ya man!

Look, I only like "Holding Space" and "Living Time" atm, I love his earlier work, that's one of the best stuff ever made in downtempo. Phoenix rising was great, but I don't really like the direction he has taken with this album. I never liked his Tech House stuff under alias Evan Marc, I even disliked it almost.There sure is talent here, and it sure is special just not my cup of tea, or it's hard digested stuff. Probably I'll like it more over time.

I totally think its special... I happen to be in my first few months of producing electronic music so I admit this has a huge impact on my impression of music, like if I am trying to learn how to sequence something.. and then bam the new bluetech album has these tones and effects 100fold and with a "I can not only hear, but feel as well that he made each spec, blip, noise, hit, sound himself" aspect as well... then to me it = OMG! I also went back and listened to the other albums again... personally I think they happen to get better as they go! But this is the wonderful world of the human mind...... so individual!

 

good job Evan! now give us an epic live record that takes us on a perfect flowing journey on one single disc through all your styles and side projects... and yes pleeeeease get Steve Hillage on stage, my father and I will travel however far to see this happen!!!!!

 

 

 

p.s. one day 3 years ago working in the dusty cabinet shop my father showed me steve hillage's album "green" dubbed on a cassette, this was the singlular moment in time where i decided to get into "psychedelic music". just mindblowing!

and by the way, the ep phonix rising was outakes of the new album, songs not enough good to make it on this release!

Are you sure? Maybe it was tracks that was more experimental, or more "Somnia" sounding. Did Evan say this? Where did you read it?

Unbelievable Sonic Masterpiece! Awe inspiring sounds from the mastermind of downtempo electro-dub.

Even the Stones Sing and Probability Tree rock my world.

 

9.1/10

Yea, I totally agree. Listened to the track Probability Tree again, and I am not sure how I did not notice its arresting and hypnotic wonderfulness on previous listens, but you are right, it is a rather brilliant piece of music. Extremely original... I cannot recall ever hearing anything else remotely similar - it creates a highly charged and provocative atmosphere while also being rather laid back at the same time... a unique, fascinating, and entrancing blend of simultaneous moods and feelings.

 

I love how it sounds very, um, "determined", "ernest", "deliberate", "powerful" as it goes about its way. Makes me feel very FIERCE on the inside!

 

And yep, Even The Stones Sing is also very intense.

The Devine Invasion by Bluetech starts out soft with some nice gravitational solvers. You can feel that the floating puzzle will take you too beautiful and out of this world landscapes of geometrical graphs and relaxing hearts with a pinch of sunshine smile. The IDMdubChill is felt in the technical aspects of the production. It’s this fine-tuning ability which Evan has perfected throughout the years of fiddling with sounds that molds this release as being something utterly intellectual , emotional, and of course, highly technological. It contains blue morning fractal skies, summer breeze on the coastline with birds resting on the gentle wind strokes. Dreaming of being, feeling no time with the rhythmic structures dancing in geometrical bubble baths. One can see clear as the technological wonder makes spaces for you to breathe deep that little or nothing is left for coincidences. The quirky sounds, the playful effects and emotional harmonics play important roles to give you entertainment and at times, rest of thought. Bluetech with beloved visions lets us see and experience authentic human emotions of sorrow and joy, wonder and affirmatives. Sometimes it gets weird and awry. It can joke as a clown, yet it doesn’t look like one. In essence it acts like a poet.

 

Continue out to space, digital space, is it a race inside a hidden maze...? Something is missed, longing for peace in the world, love from another. Something is missed, not in the music I’m listening, but something in the life we all are living. The music glows of warmth and it shivers as a star. Life has a lot of beauty… life can marble your ears and awe your sight, be it sad or joy. For sometimes it seems in life there is no sadness, no happiness. Pure beauty contains a strong fusion of feelings, a mixture that becomes your emotional, beautiful and conscious, waking life.

 

A few words about the collaboration tracks: In 2007 Ace Ventura and Lish created a very sweet and innocent melodic progressive FullOn trance track called The Light (T8). It was a big hit for its brilliance of using a euphoric melody theme with huge, soft and steady baselines pleasing your world. A few thought it to be very nice, sweet and pleasant. But for some like me it didn't amaze and do magic tricks. With the Bluetech structures building soft and settling around the main Light melodic theme, adding an extra weird touch, Bluetech has taken this track and added his magic to it. In the tenth track, Evan works together with Mirror System which is the chilled project of System 7. Now for me, this is the most intense track in emotional aspects. It’s also the one who brings emotions closer to your face, making it more accessible for all to witness and feel. It’s a pleasure to mind dance between the sheets with soft flowery senses together with a guitar and tribal drums. It’s the most easy listening track of the lot, so it’s a nice wind stroke from all the other complex tunes. Last track is together with Eitan Reiter (T11) who is half of the PsyTrance project Loud. This is a brew of past memories playing the jazz club in liquid. For some reason, I feel that this track would be a perfect contribution to the Life Is… compilation series of YoYo.

 

The Divine Invasion at times offer the listener strange play inside advanced places, the mood has hopping bleeps and sucking beeps, and as it weird’s out, the manipulated bopish beats lead the tracks along their trails with beautiful harmonics swaying over fun, and at times, awkward robotic spaces. Bluetech has a sound, a certain emotion, a way of telling a story, a feeling that shines inviting and personal. It’s complex in structure and dreamy in vision but unfortunately for some people who crave clear paths, blurry in direction. This album is painted on a timeless canvas with sounds made for you as a gift, something to explore and ponder. The structure has an arrangement which is crystal clear in its cybertech-dub realm. At times, one realizes that the music is only the bonus of this piece of audio art.

 

Recommendation : The Divine Invasion is a nice album that suits well as background noise when company, reading a book, or when wanting to experience a hidden world of geometrical structures and graphs covered in an emotional paint. When getting to know the tracks and their stories you quickly start to appreciate all the work put into it and the many layers of sonic candy being told. Music that at first seems boring, out of life and out of surprises, yet manages to convince you that it has layers on layers of surprises and fun, is easily the music one will adore and love to possess for all time to come. If you got the earlier work of Bluetech released on Alpha Zero, you will fast understand that Mr. Bartholomew has stayed truthful and committed to his special emotional direction and vibe, only more advanced. The Divine Invasion is recommended with all of my head.

 

Favorite Tracks: 1(!), 2(!), 6(!), 8(!), 10(!!), 11(!)

popping this one out a lot recently, such a nice album. first track is totally MAGIC, holding space is still very delicate, and the last tracks which i didn't like in the beginning i can now totally appreciate, especially a golden ratio sings!

 

and Probability Tree is still one of his most beautiful works ever!
