Venetian Snares is one of those artists where I personally am scared to go deep into his whole discography because I could probably spend a lllooottt of time happily lost with no idea where i left the downbeat, counting in 7’s and 9’s, grinning like a fool, intimdated to make my own music. But every time i come back to him it’s like FUCK this is some next level shit here, i have to buy all of it.
There is basically no one else making psycho intricate breakcore in 7/8. It’s encouraging to hear something so brilliantly insane. He’s been in my periphs for a while now but it was my friend giving me this album (http://www.planet.mu/discography/ZIQ111) a few years back that convinced me. This tune in particular –
So yeah fast forward a few years and I still haven’t given his older stuff a proper listen but there’s just so much to digest. His brand new EP is brilliant as well and is the inspiration for this post. I’ve been listening to ragga-jungle and glitchy sample based music for years, and admittedly he is doing stuff here that i have never heard before.
There’s previews on Planet Mu’s website, the EP is like 5 bucks. Not a bad price/brilliance ratio if you ask me .
