Hold on to your hats it’s everyones favourite drum and bass botherer Venetian Snares, here with his first album since 2010’s ‘My So Called Life’ and Aaron is on blinding form as usual with his psychotic brand of break-beat schizophrenia. ‘My Love Is A Bulldozer’ starts as it means to go on with headache inducing bad bwoy jungle breaks only to be completely chopped and mashed with lush orchestration and the odd vocals, even Aaron himself sings here believe it or not and he’s actually got an ok voice, a bit like a drunk Scott Walker of sorts but pretty good all the same. It’s not all maniacal junglist madness though with tracks like ‘Your Smiling Face’ sounding like an alternate universe Portishead and ‘She Runs’ is a pleasant little half step glitch fest not dissimilar to fellow D&B twiddler Squarepusher.
To sum up then this is a pretty typical VS album with all his tricks and clever electronic manipulation but there is a certain maturity to his madness, the tiny moments of melody are really beautiful but then your face gets blown away by the sheer insanity of his “drum machine falling down a flight of stairs” trademark sound, the man is a genius even if a little bonkers.
