Brock van Wey’s BVDub project has long been a source of inspired, sonic detailed and aurally grandiose ambient, where experimental sound design techniques and the overdriven noise of dub techno add untold layers of complexity. Violet Opposition, his latest full-length excursion under the alias, continues in this vein, with waves of fuzzy, hard-to-pigeonhole noise, effects-laden chords, mutilated instrumentation and cascading, ear-pleasing melodies combining to create a quartet of epic, opaque ambient soundscapes. It’s an approach that pays dividends though, with the immense beauty of van Wey’s arrangements and instrumental choices consistently breaking through a wall of echoing, intoxicating aural fuzz.
