After playing an amazing sell-out set for us last year,
Venetian Snares returns to Bad Timing as the final night
of a week of UK dates.
Coming out of breakcore and drill'n'bass, Venetian
Snares' trademark hectic sample-ridden splatter beat sound
has also evolved out into a relentlessly inventive (and inventively
relentless) twisted punk ragga-jungle pop music.
Its latest incarnation is full of the kinds of weirdly successful
hybridisation and dark humour which have made Snares
a true rising talent of current electronics (and all its mutant
pop children). His forthcoming release for Planet Mu
The Chocolate Wheelchair Album, hailed as the stylistic
followup to Higgins Ultra Low Track Glue Funk Hits 1972-2006, includes a shouty punkcore work-over of the theme to a certain
long-running Manchester-set soap (courtesy of Capitol K's
Jo Apps, the voice of `Dance Like You're Selling Nails')
as well as a glitch-hop rewiring of a Motley Crue track.
Since last playing Cambridge, Snares has been making appearances
at festivals such as Dedbeat and All Tomorrow's Parties
but the chance to experience him full-on at a small venue
is not be missed this time round.
