Sometimes the online world reveals unsuspected parallel dimensions. This is an unknown restyle of Neural independently (and secretly as we never knew about it) made by NY-based Motion and Graphic Designer, Clarke Blackham. Very nicely made, perhaps only a bit glossier for the magazine’s line, it testifies once more how even your most familiar outcomes can have another life somewhere else.
CD – Planet Mu/Goodfellas
Wrapped in the very elegant and suggestive apocalyptic artwork by Arnold Steiner of AS1 Projects, here is the new album by Aaron Funk, better known as Venetian Snares, dissonating protagonist of the breakcore-drill-n-bass electronica typical of Planet Mu. Always itchy elaborations, even though they’re more subdued compared to the extremism of his previous productions, to condense the only really fundamental construct, with the alternation, typical of those latitudes, between ambient and adrenaline. Industrial breaks, samplitude, abuse of foreign frequencies, hyperbole and sudden narcolepsy: this is his catalogue. Take it or leave it.
