You could time my sleep last night in seconds rather than minutes. It was a sheer waste of time for all concerned. Thursday nights? This feller aint sleepin’. Whether it’s the burnout from too many record reviews or the apprehension of facing the Friday pack ‘n’ send, I might as well have just driven over here last night and started work then for all the good it did.
I have two CDs by my bedside table to assist me in such matters, both are by BVDub. One of them particularly fires me off to sleep as if out of a cannon. It’s possibly a backhanded compliment to BVDub to say that his music sends me to sleep but I sure am grateful. I might have a harder job with this one though, it’s much much more upbeat with lots of trip-hop type beats over the usual swirling electronic bliss. It sounds a lot like Third Eye Foundation in fact.The beats aren’t possibly BV’s strong point, being a little clunky but I’m more than impressed by the swirl of voices and electronics that sits alongside. He has a trick and he pulls it off time after time and why not? It’s haunting, mesmerising electronic music that can’t fail to impress. Phil over there says it reminds him of ‘90s new-agers Enigma, which is another reason (if we need any more) to rise up to depose our stricken leader.
