“Vortrack” (Fracture Remix)
With this new album, Tom Jenkinson (Squarepusher) has returned to using vintage analogue and digital hardware, the same equipment that first helped him develop his sound in the early ’90s.
The past few years Jenkinson has been stepping away from the Squarepusher moniker exploring new territory such as forming the band Shobaleader One to reinterpret an array of classic Squarepusher tracks. He also scored the music for a 1 hour ‘CBeebies’ show and made the album “All Night Chroma” which was a series of compositions recorded on the Royal Festival Hall organ.
