Venetian Snares but happy,
This review is from: 1961 (Audio CD)
Last Step is another pseudonym for Aaron Funk (which I suspect may not be his real name), better known as Venetian Snares.
The most recent Venetian Snares album was "Detrimentalist", which I thought was quite mellowed out compared to the raw fury of some of his earlier work. "1961" is much mellower still.
This is the happy acid. There are some distinctive Venetian Snares-like glitchy touches, weird time signatures, and sudden leaps- as you'd expect the whole thing has that manic feel. It's bright and perky, with plinky synths, and major chords. In places it's really jazzy, and of course it's a lot of fun. I'd even go so far as to call it 'gentle'.
Definitely worth a listen.
