Brock Van Wey adds beats to loops this time and creates a record more active yet right in keeping with his solid body of ambient work. Resistance Is Beautiful, the newest album by San Francisco’s BVdub, sees his return to a more beat-driven style, while still traversing his trademark ambient terrains. Through quieter and more subdued ambient fields, he weaves an almost uncharacteristically gritty and unabashed rhythmic journey drawing from his life and history within early-90’s deep house, deep techno, and chill-out music, resulting in possibly his most clear narrative to date, telling a story of beauty, sacrifice, defiance and love.
