While I almost ALWAYS love every track bvdub puts out, he does put out an awful lot (I think 6-7 albums in 2011!) of the same stuff. Each track in their own right is very good but hearing them same style (and I’m talking about his ambient style) over and over again throughout the year does start to wear thin.
Thankfully I was pleasantly surprised when hearing the preview of his forthcoming album on Love’s Label, due out Mid 2012 (it was originally slated for March/April but has been delayed since). Incorporating a few more housey, uptempo beats really gives bvdub’s tracks a breathe of fresh air, I feel like I could actually dance to some of these tracks instead of the typical ambientesque staring-out-of-the-window-pose we all adopt when listening to the beatless soundscapes.
