Venetian Snares will release a new album for Planet Mu, titled Sleep.
Rather than use the Snares name, however, the electronic wildcard will be releasing this project under the title Last Step. Sleep is, as the title suggests, a collection of compositions that Funk made while falling asleep.
“These tracks are really different for me, really mellow and dreamy”, says Snares of Sleep. “That nice comfortable feeling when you’re falling asleep. Feels pointless to describe it, that feeling, there really shouldn’t be words for that state, so I describe the process a little instead. For awhile, when I was really tired and ready to go to bed instead of going to sleep I would make a tune.
“Get some stuff going on my sequencers, drum machines, patch up my modular and just jam it. Would fall asleep alot listening to the sequences, few seconds of sleep or a few minutes, wake up in it. This is what I sound like in my sleep.”
That’s the Penguin-nodding cover art, above. Mu will release Sleep on May 8.
