Aaron Funk, a Canadian producer of widely varying electronic music styles, achieved a reputation in experimental electronic circles upon his signing to Planet Mu (label run by Mike Paradinas, aka µ-Ziq). It’s a testament to his production prowess that his base of Winnipeg, Manitoba, hasn’t prevented IDM enthusiasts around the world from investigating his recordings.
Knifehandchop’s music is hard to describe because of the huge variety of influences and styles he pulls together, although none of these ever seem out of place in the mix. Each release is refreshing and different from the last, largely due to the diverse musical elements he uses; ragga, techno, hardcore, hip-hop and electro all make an appearance. When he plays live, he focuses mostly on the most dancefloor-killing material he has, to try to turn any bar or club into a full-on rave.
