Venetian Snares - Shitfuckers!!!

Aaron Funk, a Canadian producer of widely varying electronic music styles, achieved a reputation in experimental electronic circles upon his signing to Planet Mu (label run by Mike Paradinas, aka µ-Ziq). It’s a testament to his production prowess that his base of Winnipeg, Manitoba, hasn’t prevented electronic music enthusiasts around the world from investigating his recordings.

Often abbreviated to “Vsnares” – Funk’s distinctive style reflects unconventional time signatures and extremely rapid and erratic rhythms. Unpredictable and stimulating, the effect is intense.

Funk’s first release was “Greg Hates Car Culture”, an EP for the History Of The Future Label, followed by “Salt for Zhark” and “Fuck Canada // Fuck America” with Stunt Rock for CLFST. When Mike Paradinas heard “Greg Hates Car Culture”, he immediately signed Funk for Planet µ. Prior to this, he self-released material on cassette tape as early as 1992.

Well girls and boys, here would be my suggestion, Shitfuckers!!! by Mr. Aaron Funk himself. One of my favourite records that he created over the past years, chilling, somethimes agressive going forward breakcore from the godfather of sick electronica. Hit up the bong to it or grad a beer from the fridge, but make sure to enjoy your weekend!
