It's the first record to land on his Planet Mu sub-label, Timesig, since 2012's stinging Fool The Detector EP. You could call that one quintessentially Snares: full of jumbled opposites-ludicrous wit and severe solemness, digital and analogue hybridity, orchestrated chaos-it was as fun as it was disturbing.

Non-technical listeners might also find some solace in the fact this sounds remarkably like the kind of late-90s IDM which directly preceded Funk's entrance on the music scene. Much of it could pass for offcuts from Aphex Twin's classic Richard D James Album, the detuned saw-waves, the rippling snares. It was forward facing, boundary breaking for the time. With the Venetian Snares album, it's working the other way round; looking back to analogue synthesis but using it to replicate the sound of digital hardware. It's Venetian Snares going back to the root of his influences by means of a longer-established medium.
