If you haven’t heard Bluetech’s music then go check it out right now. Dubby beats, classic chillout influences and psychedelic ambient heartthrobs with a soft touch and an impeccable ear for melody.
Bluetech provided a sensual make over to the original version Garden of Your Mind which was conceived in the village of Caraques on the Spanish Riviera where Hawke played live at the Discoteque Rachdingue in 2000.
Rachdingue was originally opened by Salvador Dali and his muse Miette in 1968 and continues to be a cutting edge venue over 35 years later. Club goers come from all around to party with a flood of world famous electronic artisists under the stars amongst the giant cactusses and surrealist sculptures.
Locked inside the inner courtyard of the stone fortress (the staff had left for dinner leaving the band alone to do a sound check), guitarist Jay Bowman and I welcomed the spirits to join us in an impromptu live performance which became the basis for the song.
