On the heels of his debut EP release on DJ Shadow‘s new imprint Liquid Amber, Bleep Bloop is set to perform at Los Angeles’ famed Low End Theory, this Wednesday, January 14th. Joined by IKE GAO, BLKNZ and resident DJs Daddy Kev, Nobody, the Gaslamp Killer, D-Styles and Nocando, this is an event that those in the LA area will not want to miss.
Bleep Bloop‘s signature sound can only be described as #OUTERSPACE. The ’10 Watt Lazers’ EP is a crunchy, lazer-filled onslaught of new spacey creations that gets listeners acquainted with the unique sound and production style that first caught the attention of DJ Shadow.
As with each Liquid Amber release, the ’10 Watt Lazers’ EP will be available in limited edition vinyl form. These special vinyl releases are going to remain a constant celebration of each of the label’s releases. DJ Shadow released a limited-edition vinyl of his two original tracks from the Liquid Amber EP, “Ghost Town” & “Mob,” which sold out in 15 minutes.
DJ Shadow talks about Bleep Bloop‘s landmark release, saying, “This is the first Liquid Amber release by an artist other than myself, so it’s an exciting and challenging phase of the process. I’m learning something new daily, and that’s rewarding. With Aaron’s music, it’s not hard for me to be motivated to work on his behalf. He’s one of the artists pushing boundaries, and that’s a cause I’ll always get behind.”
“’10 Watt Lazers’ is a head-splitting hybrid of cosmic grime and hip-hop that sounds like it’s meant to soundtrack turbulent intergalactic voyages” – HYPETRAK
“Don’t sleep on this NorCal-based producer. DJ Shadow’s picked him for his new Liquid Amber imprint, and the title track from his forthcoming EP is nutso.”– Pigeons and Planes
“This is some heavy, heavy bass that is ironically rooted in space sounds, a place of lightness and void. It’s this contradiction that makes the music of Bleep Bloop so compelling. It’s this complexity that makes it easy to understand why DJ Shadow has drawn to Bleep Bloop.” – Do Androids Dance

In August, the world-renowned artist and turntablist DJ Shadow launched his own imprint, Liquid Amber, with the release of his first originally recorded material since 2011, an EP of the same title. The imprint is also a platform for Shadow to release and support music from artists he follows and believes in, the first of which is from fellow California native, Bleep Bloop (Aaron Triggs), with his 3-track EP ‘10 Watt Lazers,‘ out now.
DJ Shadow and Bleep Bloop
first linked up at Camp Questionmark’s 2013 Emisions Festival when he heard DJ Shadow playing one of the tracks featured on his Tilt EP. Bleep Bloop later collaborated with DJ Shadow on ‘Blast Off
,’ a union of two artists that Do Androids Dance
calls “a partnership that totally makes sense since both producers are rooted in hip hop but have taken it to amazing and bizarre places.” Listen to ‘Blast Off’ HERE
“Working with Shadow is like adventuring thru a surreal dreamscape you never wake up from. I was really shy about going up and introducing myself after I heard him playing my tune, but when I did he was the most down to earth dude I’d met in a long time,” says Triggs. “We’ve been working together ever since and I couldn’t be happier. ‘10 Watt Lazers’ is a release I’m really proud, and to have Shadow’s stamp of approval on it, let alone release it on his label, is just crazy cool.”
After a slew of original tracks, remixes, and collaborations that made waves through the electronic avant-garde music scene, he is set to release his debut EP on the DJ Shadow-fronted imprint. Having grown up listening to Jazz & Blues and artists like Screamin’ Jay Hawkins and Tom Waits,Bleep Bloop has combined these inspirations with his fascination of space to, in his words,“take people to the dancefloor in the sky.” The release of which its name was inspired by the kind of lasers used at Burning Man’s Camp Q, is set to showcase the young artist’s impressive production skills, while establishing his own unique brand of electronic music.
DJ Shadow says: “I discovered Aaron’s music organically, sifting through a ton of stuff on Bandcamp, a couple of years ago. Really had no idea where he was from, whether he was German, Russian, or what. I played a track of his at a bass rave in the middle of nowhere, and was stunned when I heard someone say backstage, ‘Hey, you just played my track!’ We’ve made a few tracks together since then, and he’s one of the reasons I decided to finally get a label going…he’s the type of artist I would like to expose to a wider audience.”
