Boomkat Product Review:
After dabbling in breakbeat techno and deep house proper alongside his staple ambient lush-outs in recent years, BVDub subtly evolves again on the epic three-part suite 'All Is Forgiven'. With new age pop and R&B tropes all the rage right now, Brock Van Wey is the right guy to give that sound a more adult contemporary sounding spin. As earnest and emotionally overcome as ever, he presents three sweeping longform compositions, dabbling with trill hip hop downbeats and baroque melody layered with disembodied chorales and morphing into IDM-ish breaks on the 20-minute title track, while 'Today He Felt Life' is a slow motion fall into piano keys, a vortex of strings and the kind of bass that'll sound so lush on your bang & olufsens, all teased out for a tantric 30 minutes. 'Peonies Fall For Kings' closes the set to a more rugged instrumental hiphop ambient sound layered with M&S-quality chorales. Lovely.
