    Mere months after dropping Higgins Ultra Low Track Glue Funk Hits 1972-2006 on Planet µ, Aaron Funk strikes again with this little slice of audio lobotomy. Released under the moniker Vsnares, 2370894 is, in many ways, an homage to the prevailing sounds of British experimental electronic music (which could mean a whole shitload of things, really-- I'm thinking Skam, v/vm, Rephlex, etc). The album is comprised of tracks both unreleased and left over from

    It has been something of a prolific year for Aaron Funk (aka Venetian Snares, or seemingly just VSnares now) this being his eighth release in just over 12 months.

    Judging by Aaron Funk's track-by-track comments in the liner notes, the brilliant VSNARES: 2370894 is a collection of extra songs that didn't fit anywhere else on the prolific electronic provocateur's many albums. One guess is that's why he released the album under the moniker Venetian Snares. As always, Funk skirts genres ranging from drill'n'bass to acid jazz to pure industrial experimentation. "Sybian Rock" even indulges a bit of hardcore metal lunacy.
