    <b> Venetian Snares </b> - The Chocolate Wheelchair Album

    Anything featuring a rave-breakz-punk interpretation of the Coronation Street theme tune deserves plaudits right across the board. Venetian Snares’ Aaron Funk has made a name for himself as a gilded purveyor of sample-heavy jungle breakz, brewing up a storm with his disjointed, brain-melting mixes and illogical use of the pop sample. ‘The Chocolate Wheelchair Album’ catches Funk in full flow. For the uninitiated its schizophrenic, fragmented breakdown may lack the necessary consistency for them to truly embrace it, but given time there’s a throbbing, beating heart somewhere in here that’ll eventually send your muscles spasming and your brain frazzling. Trust me, it will.
