So we just came across two artists that we’re pretty into. You know those moments where you hear tracks and straight from the beginning you know you’re onto something? That’s the impression we got with Lunice and Lazer Sword. More from Lazer Sword to come.

Canadian electronic musician Venetian Snares–Aaron Funk, born January 11, 1975–composes much of his music with trackers. Before he began to release his music commercially, he worked primarily with OctaMED on an Amiga 500. At some point prior to 2000, he began using a PC and the Windows port of OctaMED, MED Soundstudio. During 2003 and 2005 he also used Cubase in addition to MED. Venetian Snares currently uses Renoise and has uploaded a video of his track ‘Vache’ playing in Renoise on Youtube. In a February 2003 interview, Funk was asked a question regarding the diverse mix of genres he draws upon in his music, a property which the interviewer labelled “eclecticism”. Funk replied: “I prefer to call it Surrealism.”

For some reason “Colorless” strikes me as a hi-fi version of the introduction to Future Crew’s 1993 computer production “Second Reality:”
