Aaron Funk, better known as Venetian Snares had reinvented breakcore and set the stage for many other artists such as UndaCova, Xanopticon, Enduser and Datach’i.
He debuted on a record label in 1999 with the EP “Greg Hates Car Culture” released on History of the Future. Prior to this, he self-released material on cassette tapes as early as 1992. Funk was quite prolific, releasing sometimes up to eight recordings per year, for different labels including: History of the Future, Isolate/DySLeXiC ResPonSe, Addict, Zod, Distort, Sublight, Low-Res, Planet Mu and Hymen.
He is making electronic music often in odd and numbered time signatures (mostly 7/4) and combining different sounds and styles from IDM to trip-hop and dark ambient with twisted off, intense breakcore beats.
In a world dominated by boring and inconsistent EDM dance music, Venetian Snares proves once again that there is still plenty of spaces to explore and there is plenty room left for creativity. “My Love Is A Bulldozer” it’s another incredible exploration of these gloomy, still fascinating spaces. From the melancholic, Hungarian folk ballad flavored “Deleted Poems” to the extreme explosion of “1000 Years”, Venetian Snares use his full arsenal of sounds and exquisite flavors to create another unique and disturbing album.
I love how classic string or acoustic guitar moments, hardcore noises, dark pads and cinematic trips are melted into one and flavored with those wild drum breaks and torn apart eruptions of fury. This album it’s simply flawless. More I listen it, more I love it. It’s dangerously addictive.
