When you play a record made by someone called aaron funk, a 25 year old from winnipeg, canada, you instincively know it's going to be different. the fact that this venetian snares single is on mike p's planet mu imprint also hints at it's 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 you wait well and truley over.

Mr Snares' real name is Aaron Funk, and his splattercore terrorstep gabbanoise is as paradoxically pretty as it is impeccably programmed. Like "Beef Bouilion", "Defluxion" is a very limited seven-inch release so get it quick. You won't regret it (but your neighbours might)"
