Mulholland overdrive.

There’s a track on Venetian Snares‘ ’02 full-length Higgins Ultra Low Track Glue Funk Hits 1972–2006 entitled ‘Make Ronnie Rocket’ – a reference to the notorious unmade David Lynch film that hardcore fans still regard as a missing link in the auteur’s peerless canon. This might give you a clue how passionate Aaron Funk is about the director, so who better to rework the title track from Lynch’s recent full-length The Big Dream?

It’s a surprisingly low-key jam for Funk, dipping into Lynch’s darkness and surrealism rather than harnessing his usual hyper-edited breakcore, but don’t worry – it’s dripping with the kind of Lynchian atmospherics many of us thought were missing from the album itself.

‘The Big Dream’ (Venetian Snares Remix) is out now on 12″ via Sacred Bones and will also be included on the deluxe edition of The Big Dream, which is due on December 16 (US) and January 27 (UK) via Sacred Bones and Sunday Best respectively.
