Venetian Snares : Defluxion/Boarded Up Swan Entrance

Score

Nothing prepares you for the splatterbreak carnage contained on both sides.

When you play a record made by someone called Aaron Funk, a

25-year-old from Winnipeg, Canada, you instinctively know it’s going to be different. The fact that this Venetian Snares single is on Mike Paradinas’ Planet ยต imprint also hints at its chaotic genius, but nothing prepares you for the splatterbreak carnage contained on both sides. Chances are this won’t be Paradinas’ first Number One record, although if you’ve been longing to hear a recording of a drum machine being thrown down a flight of stairs, consider your wait well and truly over.
