Biography

San Francisco, United States

Bvdub is Brock Van Wey. Living and working in San Francisco, he has been DJ’ing since 1993, but did not start producing his own material until 2007. Despite this relatively short musical career, Bvdub has released material on Styrax, Quietus (his own imprint), Night Drive Music, its sub-label 2600, Southern Outpost, Darla and n5MD.

Electronic in nature, his biggest musical influences are “beat-less ambient, deep techno, and a combination of the IDM of the late nineties, the modern-day direction of experimental—glitch ambient, and electro-acoustic. ” Commonly lumped into the ‘dub techno’ genre, Brock’s music is anything but; he effortlessly reworks and re-interprets his influences to create something seemingly familiar but wholly different.

Brock has also released music under his given name, Brock Van Wey, as Earth House Hold (deep house), and East of Oceans (drum&bass).

    I was just listening to 'Undiscovered Colors' by The Flashbulb and thinking of how a collaboration between bvdub and him would really be something else.

    I still purchase CDs to collect and provide financial support. However I see less and less of what I consider 'digipaks' - i.e. with the part that holds a disc in place to keep it from scratching. It might make sense for the labels given that I don't actually listen to the CD, but it still comes across as a bit cheap when I open an album and the disc flops right out. Anyways, I'm getting pretty off topic now :-)

    @Electrofreaks you should email Mike Cadoo, the owner of n5MD. When my copy of 'A History of Distance' got lost in the mail for a few weeks he immediately sent me another copy no questions asked.

    Tanto arrived in the post from n5MD, already scratched like the last two cd's I ordered from them. Frustrating.

    I can honestly say I don't think I have ever cried listening to music but damn if 'I BREAK ALL AROUND YOU' isn't making me well up a bit. Making me think of my dogs face during our last day on earth together. I had to put him down last month due to cancer. Song makes me think of a picture I took of him looking up at me (head in my lap) during our final moments together.....and damnit I'm a mess now. Anyway this song is beautiful.

    We all know what collabs with brock means, 95% brock, and then fractures of the other artist, just the way it should be c:
