Random Rab
Random Rab
Rab was born. He began to experiment with sound. The back of his head fell on the ground. Sound was released from the THUMP. It was deafening and created around him the first note of Random Rab's music.
Evan Bartholomew has been performing electronic music for nearly 20 years as Bluetech, EvanMarc and Invisible Allies (with Kilowatts).

As an an internationally recognized touring music producer with over 27 album / EP releases and aseasoned portfolio of video game and film scoring credits, Bluetech is a master of analog andmodular sound synthesis and DSP audio manipulation. He brings a passion for sound design andcutting edge audio exploration into all the work he touches. His music transcends the constructsnormally associated with a calculated “electronic artist,” pursuing music with meaning and purposewith downtempo, future bass and progressive electronic music, rife with emotional intent andpoly-rhythmic percussion.

Bluetech began his training as a classically trained pianist at a young age, and has explored his craftas a DJ, musician, film composer, record producer and label owner. His work has evolved to includehis roots in classical composition and ear for nomadic harmonic progressions and a deep awarenessof music as a kinetic force with body moving beat mechanics.

Working as a solo artist, as well as a producer, he has written scores for film & television (CSI:Miami, Scared Sacred, Occupy Love, Albedo Absolute, various television commercials), videogames (Comet Crash 2 – forthcoming PS4) and virtual reality installations (MicrodoseVR). Inaddition to music, Evan has established a reputation as an accomplished graphic designer,illustrator, and 3D animator through both his personal work and commissions for clients (Microsoft,Austin City Limited, City Of Seattle). Bluetech has toured extensively throughout the U.S. andinternationally, having shared stages with such acts as The Glitch Mob, The Orb, Bassnectar, Ott,Juno Reactor and many more.

Bluetech’s latest album “4 Horsemen of the Electrocalypse: The Black Horse” is an analog andmodular based composition, in the same vein that he explored with his previous two albums “TheRed Horse” and “The White Horse,” both released in 2016. Ranging from dark Detroit influencedelectro, synthfunk, to more melodic techno explorations, this release pushes forward Bluetech’sunique analog based approach to sound and music production.
