About Bluze

Bluze

Dubstep producer Bluze comes from a Hip Hop background, having entered the music scene as a producer alongside Indian Ropeman in the UK Hip Hop crew First Down, signed to Blitz Vinyl to record the seminal World Service LP and Mad Dogs and Englishmen EP; He lead a double life in the 90’s making Hip Hop during the week, and breakbeat/house at the weekend – his first release was a house track on BMG New York when he was 19.

As hardcore turned to jungle and then to Drum & Bass, Bluze turned too, and made d & b full-on for 10 years, playing numerous live shows in clubs and on the festival circuit. Releases followed on labels such as Polyrhythmic, P+, DS Enterphonics and Lacerba as a solo artist, and Renegade Recordings as one half of ‘Morph & Bluze’, contributing to their acclaimed ‘Renegade Rollers’ series. Played out by Marcus Intalex, LTJ Bukem and Fabio, Bluze’s Drum & Bass was well respected in the scene.

His live shows have taken him all over the world, from performing regularly at Brighton’s Cafe Expose, to prestigious club appearances from Ministry Of Sound in London to Baze in San Paolo, Brazil, and Prague alongside Fabio.

A chance meeting with Hank Shocklee in Miami during the Winter Music Conference in 2008 led to his near-instant conversion to dubstep, and it’s here that he’s found his musical home. His deep, soulful dubstep is getting radio play the world over and receiving great DJ and dancefloor feedback.

Forthcoming Releases

With four releases due out this summer, 2010 is set to see Bluze emerge as one of the hottest new acts in Dubstep this year.

On Lady Destiny’s latest EP, a hotly anticipated set of tracks brings him alongside Benga, Distance and Bugz in the Attik on productio duties, while his collaboration with electronica artist Kennedy has borne fruit with a release on Universal Music planned for the summer. A remix of a track for Red Grape Records with an incredible old Peggy Seeger acapella  will shortly be released as part of Broadcaster EP.  Meanwhile his recent signing to Dubstep and Drum & Bass label ALTOSYNC promises a string of new releases and remixes.

    Hi Marco,

    Really glad you like my stuff; I’d forgotten all about ‘Heat’! Well, it’s good timing, as I’m just sorting out the digital distribution for my work now. Should have MP3’s available for download here and a few digital stores within the next 2 weeks, and iTunes etc in about 8.

    Wherever they end up, I’ll put the info up here; check back here in a couple of weeks, or subscribe to the RSS feed so you’re among the first!

    Thanks again for the support.
