Boomkat Product Review:
The man Funk returns with yet another Venetian Snares release, proving that inactivity gets you nowhere - with 'Hospitality' fizzing straight off the back of 'Cavalcade Of Glee And Dadaist Happy Hardcore Pom Poms' and trying to recapture the intricate peaks of 'Rossz Csillag Allat Szeletett'. As with his spiritual sibling Squarepusher, Aaron Funk seems to have approached this new album from a more melodious perspective - tethering the spastic rhythms and clattering breaks with a firm batch of tunes that will see it appeal to old hands and newcomers alike. Opening with 'Frictional Nevada', Funk initially seems to have mellowed somewhat as a fog of shimmering soundscapes drift past the Eastern influenced melodies behind... Yet just when you think it's safe to ditch the ear-muffs, 'Frictional Nevada' delivers the kind of brusque onslaught of beats that make Venetian Snares' records such a treat - here skittering around the synth swoops and ebbing instrumentation. To say it's a grandstanding opener is something of an understatement... Keeping things on a similarly wide-screen setting, 'Beverly's Potato Orchestra' is a cinematic coalition of malfunctioning beats, digital voices and spellbinding soundscapes that unite to devastating effect. From here 'Shoot Myself' tips the nod to Giorgio Moroder through it's cold-water synths and ricochet beats, 'Duffy' cranks up the bass for a cascading electronic diktat, whilst 'Cabbage' drafts in some church bells to thaw the hard-boiled breaks. Closing on the title track (an acid-flecked missive with a smattering of vocals...), Venetian Snares has yet again proved why he demands your attention.
