Venetian Snares compilation

Venetian Snares is Aaron Funk's twisted soul conquering the breakcore scene.

Everyone already knows Rossz Csillag Alatt Született (Born Under a Bad Star), which I have a soft spot for because the album's main theme is Hungary, but it is not representative of Vsnares' discography, because of how varied it is. No one album would do the job, which is why I'm including two of his offerings; Meathole, a noisy album that samples jazz, but is verrry dark, and the Sabbath Dubs 7", which is two dub remixes of Black Sabbath songs. Hopefully, the contrast is clear between the chaotic, arrhythmic snare rushes of Meathole and the laid back, stoner tracks on Sabbath Dubs.

If you want more classical samples, check out My Downfall and Rossz. His new album, Detrimentalist is more jungle-influenced. His earlier albums are not as experimental, but still go above and beyond all the breakcore I've heard.
