The latest by veteran Brock Van Wey’s renowned and illustrious alias, bvdub demonstrates aural patience that gradually unravels throughout this two and a half hour long player. Brock’s grandiose approach to sound creation has been incredibly influential for both the listener and fellow artists, acknowledging that only few can execute the open spaces and cerebral attentiveness that Van Wey illustrates so effortlessly. ‘Slowly Shifting Lakes’ is the manifestation of liberation not limitation, exploring the malleability of time.

◾️◾️◾️ REVIEW

"bvdub delivers a vast new collection of his absorbing ambient music on Past Inside the Present. Slowly Shifting Lakes is yet another epic collection of fuzzy, lo-fi, gorgeously textured and lived-in ambient. It's intense and full by some ambient standards - soundscapes that demand the attention and go from misty, rainy visions to more serene and blissed-out vibes.

Brock Van Wey hails from the Bay Area, but his bvdub project is known worldwide. It sees the American provide a near-constant stream of innovative ambient music on the Past Inside The Present label - this new double album comes just a couple of months after his last one, Fumika Fades, but is essential once more.

There are plenty of intense and heavily textured tracks as well as more empty and escapist pieces with heavenly melodies and subtle vocals worked into dreamy effect. The ambient here is coarse and textured, fizzing synths stretching out over skittish rhythmic frameworks before sinking into calmer waters on cuts like the escapist 'Searching For Glowing Shores.' Another triumphant album for sure."
