Aaron Funk (born January 11, 1975, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada), a producer of vastly varying types of electronic music, gained a profile in experimental techno circles with his signing to the Planet Mu label run by Mike Paradinas (aka µ-Ziq). It's a tribute to his production prowess that his base of Winnipeg, Manitoba, hasn't prevented IDM enthusiasts around the world from investigating his recordings.
Often abbreviated to "Vsnares" -- Funk's distinctive style reflects unconventional time signatures and extremely rapid and erratic rhythms. Unpredictable and stimulating, the effect is intense. His style has been critically acclaimed, notably by the late British radio disc jockey John Peel.
Funk's first release was 27021, an EP for the History Of The Future Label, followed by 14135 for Zhark and 152962 with Stunt Rock for CLFST. When Mike Paradinas heard Greg Hates Car Culture, he immediately signed Funk for Planet Mu. The first Venetian Snares LP on Planet Mu, 22013 (a co-production with Speedranch), dropped in early 2001; following in short order were 5 more releases, all released before the end of 2002. Funk continued recording for a variety of labels, including Hymen, Addict, and Sublight Records, and has also recorded as Snares Man!, BeeSnares, Snares and Senetian Vnares.
