I agree, I just find people more trustworthy, especially people on this site.

I am listening to 'Songs About My Cats' right now. Hmmm. Different to say the least.

i have the 'Devil's Totem' track from the Planet Mu label compilation, really good. Just the timbres and textures he produces are like nothing you've ever heard before... but I could see how some might consider it just to be random noise, 'cause it sort of is. But since when was that a bad thing?

At this point, probably my favorite electronic composer. It's like schizophrenia, LSD, anger and goofiness articulated through electronic beats.

How is that not tantalizingly cool?

Determinalist is pretty over the top but fun if I'm in the mood.

VS is the name for the DJ Aaron Funk, who deals in fiercly experimental and often pretty loud electro. Listening to it it's clear this guy has no regard for time signatures or conservative song structures. If you like your disconnected Aphex Twin-style beats then definitely give him a go.
A quick rundown of the albums i've got...

Songs About My Cats
Not amazing i must admit, i read that it takes many listens for the apparant melodies that are there to be noticable, i don't think i'm there yet.

Winnipeg Is a Frozen Shithole
My favourite at the moment, got it simply because my friend told me some of the song names. Song is of course the wrong word here. This is powerful breakcore at its best, and in a far more concise package than the other albums. The distorted bass and drum patterns are just insane, and there's some brilliant sampling (the intro for 'Winnipeg is a Dogshit Dildo' must be one of my favourites).

Rossz Csillag Alatt Született
At some points, while chilling a lot of the time, this album can actually be quite beautiful. The string sampling is inspired, where on the first track it can be used to jump and shock the listener later on it's used as a substitute for ambient synths. I could get to like this a lot.

This isn't actually anything like what i've heard yet but the video is cool.
YouTube - LEGO BAND - VENETIAN SNARES
Great post, Aaron Funk is pretty darn amazing. I didn't even know Detrimentalist was out. I'll have to check that out.

Winnipeg Is a Frozen ****hole is my favourite from them

ps: why is it that some can write ****hole without it being censored and others can't? The bad lanugage censor is the only thing that turns me off this site.
