Squarepusher aka UK artist Tom Jenkinson will return with a new album “Be Up A Hello” on the 31st of January via Warp Records. His new single, “Nervelevers,” is out now. A video has also been released and can be viewed below.
“Nervelevers” breakneck breakbeats recall classic moments from Squarepusher’s much-loved catalogue, which coupled with its blistering acid line also exemplifies the influence his formative years in the Essex rave scene had on the new LP.
For those who don’t know Squarepusher, a disgrace if you don’t, here’s some info. His music spans several genres, including drum and bass, IDM, jazz, and electroacoustic music and his recordings are typified by a combination of electronic sound sources, live instrumental playing, and digital signal processing. He is also the brother of Ceephax Acid Crew (Andrew Jenkinson).
