The Do LaB presents
Bluetech, Emancipator & Laura Escudé

We are extremely excited to be bringing Bluetech along with Emancipator back to the King King on Thursday September 23rd! To be completely honest, they are two of our favorite! They both blew our minds and lifted our hearts during Lightning in a Bottle! Did we mention that they're brilliant electronic musicians?? Well they are!!!
Along with Laura Escudé opening the show, this is going to be a night of world class music, new and old friends, and tons of beautiful smiling faces.

-- The Line Up --
* BLUETECH *
A classically trained pianist and master of the art of software production. Bluetech's love of the melodic and exquisite sense of sound design makes him one of the most ingenius producers today. Avoiding limitation by subgenre or stylistic restrictions, he is always looking to explore fresh ideas with his instantly recognizable attention to detail and unique production aesthetic. While encompassing musical touches from different parts of the globe, he presents a total blend, crossing genres and borders.
Bluetech has created a label called Native State Records to release his own music and music from other artists who cross boundaries between ambient/chill and more idm/experimental sounds. Not content to stay at home, Bluetech has toured extensively and performed in Japan, UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, Croatia, France, Denmark, Mexico, United States, and Canada.
* EMANCIPATOR *
To some, it must seem like this young electronic producer came out of nowhere this year. Emancipator played his first live show in July 2009, opening for Bonobo at the Roseland Theater (cap. 1500). Since then, he’s toured with Bassnectar, STS9, Pretty Lights, drawn crowds at festivals like Trinumeral and Symbiosis, and closed out Sound Tribe Sector 9’s late night parties in Denver at the request of the band.
Those in the know have been following Emancipator since he self-released his first album, Soon It Will Be Cold Enough, at the age of 19 in 2006. His agile melodies layered over headnodic, immaculately-produced beats captivated fans across the internet and across the world.
His latest album “Safe In The Steep Cliffs” blends new instrumentation and organic samples with the signature Emancipator style of clean production, silky melodies and addictive drums. Dense layers of choirs, horns, American folk instruments such as the banjo and mandolin, violin and some distinct Asian influences make for a playful but refined album built out of intricate tracks listeners can enjoy on as many levels as they want. Dance to it, chill out to it, immerse your mind in it.
* LAURA ESCUDÉ *
Laura Escudé is a critically-acclaimed music technologist, violinist, composer, sound designer and educator.
A Renaissance artist for the New Age, Laura's mastery of cutting edge musical technologies and experimental techniques, complemented with her classical training and experience performing in symphony orchestras, sets her apart in a class of her own. Her solo project encompasses a myriad of genres, utilizing live electronics, synthesis, found sounds, samples and violin affected by hardware and software.
