Venetian Snares, aka Aaron Funk, embarked on a Bartokian journey to Hungary to collect modern classical, jazz, pop, and other local music to create his own electronic reinvention of folk music. This album features these carefully chosen samples against Funk's progressive breakbeat and happy hardcore beats. The resulting sound is grandiose, epic, intelligent, and forward-thinking, all while remaining much more palatable than the typical schizophrenia and claustrophobia of the usual Venetian Snares sound. Rossz Csillag Allat Szuletett may be the most intelligent electronic album of all time.
Rossz Csillag Allat Szuletett is an enticingly sadistic swarm of tracks that are a precious fusion of EDM and modern classical styles. Aaron Funk (under the alias Venetian Snares) is - in a sense so vulgar and oddly comforting - just like that one snake charmer you never want to abandon.
Surprisingly, this is the album that got me into electronic music in the first place. At the time, the disparity between this and what I normally listened to was massive so I found this instantly engrossing with sounds and signatures that I had never heard before.
