Published Jan 30, 2012Winnipeg-based electronic warrior Venetian Snares (aka Aaron Funk) most recently released his Cubist Reggae EP last year, a release that caused a shitstorm in our comments section due to our reviewer's brief mention of the term "dubstep." Now, we can hopefully move on from that, as Funk has announced plans for a new EP.
The release is called Fool the Detector and packs four songs on a twelve-inch record. The first track on the release is called "Ego DSP," which we all pray is not an abbreviation for "dubstep."
In a press release, Funk described the new record with the following statement:
One of these tracks is about my two friends. I really love them, they are good people and really great friends.... See if you can guess which song it is! Another, I wrote using only tweeters so it was hard to make out anything other than hi-hats. Still, it sounds much better than most music that has been recorded. See if you can guess which one it is! There is a track that mainly uses analog devices to control digital devices. It seems laughable that most people want to control their analog synths with midi, imposing their ridiculous choice of notes on the music.... I have enabled these devices to communicate in a mutually respectful, consensual embrace. See if you can guess which track is 100% free of blatant narcissism! The final tune is a ramp, an inclined plane, or a crescendo of sorts in music, stretched out over a number of minutes. It's like a pyramid wall made from every thought you've ever thought of becoming immeasurably more discernible, yet built upon a river of everything you've tried to forget. The river is grey and all thoughts you've ever had are all other colors but mainly maroon and silver. See if you recognize your thoughts in this one!
Fool the Detector will be available on March 5 via Funk's own Timesig imprint. The record can be pre-ordered here.
