Bleep Bloop - 10 Watt Lazers EP - 7"
The second release from DJ Shadow's new imprint LIQUID AMBER comes from fellow California native Bleep Bloop (Aaron Triggs), with his 3-track EP '10 Watt Lazers,' out now.
Following a slew of original tracks, remixes, and collaborations that made waves through the electronic avant-garde, Bleep Bloop is releasing his debut EP on Liquid Amber. The 3-track EP is a calling card for his sound which can only be defined as #OUTERSPACE.
Bringing a crunchy, laser-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 beat scene’s most promising young artists.
DJ Shadow and Bleep Bloop first linked up in 2013 when Triggs 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 called “A partnership that totally makes sense, since both producers are rooted in hip hop but have taken it to amazing and bizarre places.”

The third release from DJ Shadow's new imprint LIQUID AMBER comes from fellow California native Ruckazoid, with his 3-track EP 'Scratchgod I'.
"It’s created straight off scratching only, according to the “SCRATCHGOD.” If so, praise to you as well Ruckazoid. We’re not worthy." -URB
"The most awesome thing about “Money,” besides the fact that it’s an amazing track, is that it was recorded live, and it highlights the artist’s incredible skill in sampling, mixing, looping, and scratching." -Sensible Reason
"Anyone who thinks that real DJing and turntablism are dead is dead WRONG! Case in point—the DJ Shadow-approved and self-proclaimed Scratch God known as Ruckazoid." -Heady T

Hi everyone, Shadow here. I spent about 2 years on this one, on and off. Put everything I had into it. Wanted to make a record that reflected a lot of what I'm liking about music right now. Tried not to worry about the naysayers or rock critics, but definitely had my true fans in mind. For those that stuck around, I hope you like what you hear...I think this is one of the good ones. Your support is massively appreciated, now more than ever.
'The Less You Know The Better' by DJ Shadow (Czech Version - Jewel Case). Shadow is back, and better than ever with this fresh new album.
Technology, gadgets, and corporations have taken over the planet, and the only way to fight back is to serve them their own medicine. When you see a billboard with an ad for the newest teenage drama queen movie, or the newest animated disaster, think of Roland the iPad saying "Who Cares?" When you see ads plastered on city streets for liquor or the newest car, think of Seth the iPhone saying "This Sucks." Titania, the laptop is a silent symbol to accompany Seth and Roland, representing the evolution of the human mind-state into complete and utter reliance on the ever-powerful computer.
These characters are bold messages in the war of information and control.
Without going much further, we'll just let you listen to the brand new, and better than ever DJ Shadow.
