Making waves, yes.

DJ Shadow recently 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 9, which follows a slew of original tracks, remixes, and collaborations (listen to one of them he did with his label head, in fact, below) that made waves through the electronic avant-garde music scene.
The backstory: Having grown up listening to Jazz & Blues and artists like Screamin’ Jay Hawkins and Tom Waits, he has combined these inspirations with his fascination of space to, in his words, “take people to the dancefloor in the sky.” The EP’s name was inspired by the kind of lasers used at Burning Man’s Camp Q. Bringing a “crunchy, lazer-filled onslaught of new spacey creations,” Bleep Bloop will be touring through 2015 as well. The tracks on the upcoming EP: “10 Watt Lazers,” “Denial,” “Crushed.”
