Biography

Winnipeg, Canada (1992 – present)

Aaron Funk, a Canadian of widely varying electronic music styles, achieved a reputation in circles upon his signing to Planet Mu (label run by Mike Paradinas, aka µ-Ziq). It’s a testament to his production prowess that his base of Winnipeg, Manitoba, hasn’t prevented electronic music enthusiasts around the world from investigating his recordings.

Often abbreviated to “Vsnares” – Funk’s distinctive style reflects unconventional time signatures and extremely rapid and erratic rhythms. Unpredictable and stimulating, the effect is intense.

Funk’s first release was “Greg Hates Car Culture”, an EP for the History Of The Future Label, followed by “Salt” for Zhark and “Fuck Canada // Fuck America” with Stunt Rock for CLFST. When Mike Paradinas heard “Greg Hates Car Culture”, he immediately signed Funk for Planet µ. Prior to this, he self-released material on cassette tape as early as 1992.

The first Venetian Snares LP on Planet µ “Making Orange Things” (a co-production with Speedranch), dropped in early 2001; following in short order were 5 more releases, all released before the end of 2002. Funk continued recording for a variety of labels, including Hymen, Addict, and Sublight Records, and has also recorded as snares, Snares Man!, BeeSnares, Ventriloquist Snakes, Puff, Last Step and Senetian Vnares.

    I'm totally blown away by the whole singing thing. A very un-obvious step, a quite unexpected talented (I mean have you seen his interviews? he sounds like a retarded junkie, though it's likely to be an act), something that sounds like a probably ridiculous idea and it's SO GOOD I CAN'T STOP LISTENING TO HIS VOICE. fuck I can't wait for this

    Well what do you know, 10th Circle of Winnipeg was his opening track way back at the Planet Mu showcase show a year ago. Cool shit, can't wait. Hate how Planet Mu teases you for a couple of months before the damn thing comes out, though!

    I uploaded a pack of rare/old Snares tracks for someone so I figured I'd post them here too. If anyone can help identifying them, gimme a shout! "Here ya go. That one that start off with the "dead bodies" sample is really familiar and I feel like I should know what it's called. And that 2 Another Horizon thing reminds me of something off Find Candace but I could never pinpoint it. Dunno much about the others https://www.mediafire.com/?sgx6c1x3h0k22sz "
