***Having grown vastly in popularity since 2005's astounding Rossz Csillag Allat Szeletett, Venetian Snares (aka Aaron Funk) has since headlined sold out shows everywhere. Cavalcade Of Glee And Dadaist Happy Hardcore Pom Poms is the true follow up to last year's Hungarian masterpiece.

Consisting of ten tracks written over the last eighteen months, it shows Funk's versatility with form and mastery of his tools.

***Following an outstanding 2003 and the success of his Chocolate Wheelchair album, the ever popular AARON FUNK (aka VENETIAN SNARES) unleashes his eleventh album. Showcasing the V Snares' melodic side, Funk delivers his most accessible record to date. Circuit-bent, speaker-destroying beats burrow into dry mournful chords creating an alien plastic atmosphere, that serves as a departure from the crazy samples and jungle breaks of previous efforts and moves toward a more considered sound.

***Canadian Aaron Funk (aka Venetian Snares) has risen from the breakcore underground to become one of the most exciting musicians working in electronic music today. Meathole, a follow up to the majorly acclaimed Rossz Csillag Alatt Szuletett, is a return to the dark atmospherics of earlier Funk efforts like Doll Doll Doll and Find Candace. Here, Funk eschews the charming melodics and baroque strings of recent works and sinks again into a dark world of murder, devil worship and child abuse. The beats are unrelenting and odd time-signatures and spooky pads are perfectly employed throughout. Another well constructed opus from an artist who can't seem to stop making experimental breakcore and d 'n' b classics.

***Since 2005, there has been one Venetian Snares album that everybody has talked aboutothe masterpiece Rossz Csillag Allat Szuletett, Aaron Funk's story of falling in love among the spires of Budapest, scored by an orchestra and the Amen break. If that album was in effect a question, then this one is his answer: the unfolding of this particular Hungarian story. If anything, My Downfall is even more epic and bombastic than its predecessor, but not without those little humorous touches so beloved of Snares.

The achingly sad orchestral instrumental "Colorless" sets the tone for the majority of the album: loss and regret. In fact, most of the 14 tracks on My Downfall are instrumental, and only four of these tracks have any rhythm section whatsoever. Of those four, "My Half" stands out with its coruscating Amens and tensional chord progressions. The choir and harp on "I'm Sorry I Failed You" starts the albumis descent toward the dark piano finale of "Mentioning It" via the beautiful "If I Could Say I Love You." Even the cover has a mournful stone sculpture on the front and the previous albumis pigeon being eaten on the inner sleeve. If you thought that Rossz Csillag Allat Szuletett was a one-off, then think again.

***Venetian Snares, aka Gonk the 8-legged Viking, is back with yet another record that sounds nothing like Boards of Canada!

From the catchy title track opener "Pink + Green", which blends demented punk vocals with hyper-complex grooves and gut gurgling bass blasts, you can just tell this is something fresh and funky from producer Aaron "funk" Funk. Not to worry though, the sub-rattling low-end blasts and jackhammering hardcore anthems are still here and in full-effect on tracks like "Sporto Fucking Sellout Cocksuckerface" and "Husikam Rave Dojo" that revisit the days of pilled-out candy raving. This is cyberpunk at its finest! Welcome to the interzone! 15 year old K-heads will love this shit!

If you hated albums like Winnipeg is a Frozen Shithole and Higgins Ultra Low Track Glue Funk Hits 1972-2006, you will hate this even more! This is not some crybaby n00bcore bullshit, this is rave at its roughest like only Mr. Snares can bring it. So buy this kickin' new EP so Snares can buy more laptops to make his untouchable "voice of a generation" breakcore cyber hits! This 12" Features amazing artwork by Arnold Steiner aka AS1 Projects.

***Aaron Funk (aka Venetian Snares) hails from Winnipeg, Canada. Since his debut 12-inch in 1999 on a small Minneapolis label, he has risen from the breakcore underground to become one of the most astonishing (and popular) musicians working in the experimental electronic sphere (alongside Squarepusher, Aphex Twin and Boards Of Canada). Each new album from Funk brings with it a new sound, a new atmosphere, a whole new world-- he always avoids repeating what's come before.

Rossz Csillag Allat Született is his 12th studio album and most mature work yet. Inspired by a trip to Hungary while on European tour, Funk found himself on the Királyi Palota (Budapest's Royal Palace) imagining himself as a pigeon. This somewhat unlikely scenario was an epiphany for Funk, inspiring some of his most heartfelt work to date. The baroque strings and eastern European melodies were the starting point for these compositions, with Funk's trademark jungle rhythms added only later as accents to increase the intensity. For this record Funk learned the trumpet and electric violin which both feature prominently. It even contains a cover of Rezsô Seress' notorious "Hungarian Suicide Song" aka "Gloomy Sunday" in its Hungarian title "Öngyilkos Vasárnap."
