This isn’t new, far from it, but I thought I’d share something that many of you might not ever have heard before. Venetian Snares pioneered the genre drill & bass, although it’s now more widely known as breakcore, or as my mum calls it… ‘crap’. Venetian Snares wont be to everybodies taste, but electronica and dnb fans will no doubt appreciate at least aspects to this experimental sound. Szamár Madár is from the 2005 album Rossz Csillag Allat Született, a pretty damn good album, although too much in one sitting can leave me feeling nauseous. However the album prior to that one was Songs About My Cats, and that album really was a test of one’s patience. In his earlier years Venetian Snares fired on all cylinders where creating experimental electronic music was concerned – however it was more than just a tad to the left of the field and a lot of people gave it a miss. But with Rossz Csillag Allat Született it seemed Snares had refined his sound, taking a more firm direction with his compositions – the result being a diverse mish-mash of chaotic beauty.
Anyway, Cavalcade of Glee and Dadaist Happy Hardcore Pom Poms the new album with a long name is out now and I am very interested to hear it, so I’ll have to grab it some time. I don’t see each passing album as Venetian Snares taming himself, but rather refining his sound. As well as sampling the track Szamár Madár above, please make sure you watch the amazing video here at YouTube.
Sorry for the minimalist blog entry today, I’m pretty tired and also convinced I’m suffering from some sort of post-new-Shadow-album-depression. I’ll snap out of it soon enough. Still, Track of the Week tomorrow, that’s something to look forward to!
