VENETIAN SNARES / Fool The Detector EP [2012]

Breakcore producer Aaron Funk (aka Venetian Snares) has a hilariously absurd sense of humor that seems to enjoy tormenting the listener's comfort.  His second EP of 2012, Fool The Detector does nothing to contradict that.  
It eases you in with soothing, haunting textures that teeter towards New Age/classical genres and then sonically assaults you with unnerving glitches and distorted sound palates that puts the brain into a blissful frenzy.  It's baffling to hear Funk blend slow, moody soundscapes with frenetic blurps & chirps and yet somehow make it all work.  It's not going to gain any new fans but will certainly leave the already initiated with a twitchy grin on their faces.
