So Saimon Saimonse is a little bit obsessed with bvdub – but who isn’t it? Brock Van Wey is more than a prolific artist, with more than a handful of albums per year under many monikers – he is a shaman weaving sonic landscapes that are just as beautiful as they are hypnotizing. It’s easy to drown in the trance-inducing waves of sound, light-churning beats, bass, and the trailing melodies that seem to go on forever, only to be ached for after they stop. And so, it’s easy to agree with Saimonse’s selection for this 90-minute podcast, which I am broadcasting from my hotel in London. In fact, on the way back from my quick weekend getaway in Prague, I boarded the plane, put on this lovely mix, closed my eyes, and when it was over, I was back in London. A fine trip in the company of a favorite artist! But as usual, don’t listen to my words – listen to the music and experience for yourself!
