taking the freewheeling rhythms and virtuosity of Squarepusher, tossing in doses of Aphex Twin and the kitchen sink, and you've got Aaron Funk, aka Venetian Snares. Familiarities aside, VS certainly has cut a big hole for himself in current music that sounds like nothing else. After breaking out just a couple of years ago and since dropping 5 full length albums, he's the one of the brightest young artists (and most vital) in 10 years. This is his best. VS cuts, slaps, clicks, buzzes, and crashes his way through melody and rhythm like literally NONE before him. Its often a bit overwhelming, but in a truly satisfying and inspiring manner. Drill n bass and glitch cut across a barren, generally bassless landscape with actual vocals and classical and disorientingly modern melodies sitting atop the maelstrom. Hands down the best track here is "Cashew". A track like this can hold up to anything AFX can put up. After 5 albums, this guy is getting better and better. AFX and Squarepusher have a new peer. Now, lets get that new KID606 album out.

Frenetic, freakish rhythms in the same vein as Squarepusher, Autechre and Aphex Twin. Intricate enough to just listen to, but with enough energy that you can't help bobbing your head along with it. Occasionally gets more abstract and detached than I like, but still very well done.

IT IS THE KING OF BREAKCORE'S NEWEST RELEASE. STOP THINKING AND BUY IT. NOW, RIGHT NOW, OR HIS CATS WILL EAT YOU!
P.S.
