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.
