    <b> Venetian Snares </b> - Cavalcade Of Glee And Dadaist Happy Hardcore Pom Poms

    Taking digital hardcore to it’s melodic extreme seems to be the last thing anyone wants to do these days. The harsher, extreme sounding capabilities of fucking with the EQ is the favoured course of action. So it’s refreshing to have someone as versatile and gifted as Aaron Funk bring a little (well, a lot, and generally squashed together in second long bursts) melody to proceedings. Any song that takes the hyperactive expletives of jungle, fusing it with a multitude of electro squeels, found sounds and a whole myriad of weird chimes (and that’s just the rhythm section) deserves a medal! Whilst Aphex Twin and Kid606 preoccupy themselves with further the sonic terrorism cause, it’s reassuring to know that someone is fighting melody’s corner!
