"The rapidly expanding field of experimental hiphop has spawned a few true innovators, and a host of imitators, all over the globe. Rising above that bubbling soup is Melbourne based producer Aoi. Armed with a spare room full of dusty old records, analog synths, and some software, Aoi has created some of the most attention grabbing, psychedelic bangers in the country. Funnelweb is, as its name suggests, a mysterious and dangerous beast. Dangerous amounts of head-nodding will accompany from your very first listen, as primitive abstract drum patterns interact with lazer buzzsaw synths from the distant future. While others wear their influences on their sleeves, Aoi's influences come together into one amorphous, pulsating blob of sound - creating something of a mystery as to exactly what is going on. According to the man himself, it's the influence of 'beatdigging culture, anime, Italian zombie flicks, gold fronts, weird video games, golden era rap music, dusty drums, no quantizing, prog, soul, Krautrock and jazz fusion' that made it what it is."
