Bleep Bloop – 10 Watt Lazers EP
In August 2014, 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’ set for release on December 9th 2014.
After a slew of original tracks, remixes, and collaborations that made waves through the electronic avant-garde music scene, he is getting ready to release his debut EP on the DJ Shadow-fronted imprint. The 3-track EP will get those unfamiliar with his unique style well-acquainted with his sound that can only be defined as #OUTERSPACE.
Bringing a crunchy, lazer-filled onslaught of new spacey creations, from the EP’s wobbly title track to the hip-hop-infused grime banger ‘Denial,’ Bleep Bloop is set to put himself on the map as one of the scene’s most promising young artists.

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. Watch Bleep Bloop perform at Burning Man’s Camp Q here.
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’ below.
On November 4th 2014, DJ Shadow released a limited-edition vinyl of his two original tracks from the Liquid Amber EP, “Ghost Town” & “Mob,” which sold out in just 15 minutes. Listen to the Liquid Amber EP here.
