Squarepusher Biography

"I'm just trying to shut myself out of the mediocrity that surrounds us all. You have to when a bit of plastic's all that represents you in the world." ngland’s Tom “Squarepusher” Jenkinson is one of the most unique characters in contemporary music. Beloved by both the experimental electronica set and enthusiasts of avant-garde jazz, Squarepusher emerged in the mid-1990s with a style that combines frantic breakbeats with influences from techno, jungle, acid house and hip-hop, as well as musique concrète and of course, jazz. A multi-instrumentalist and bass virtuoso, Squarepusher has released about 12 albums and countless EPs during his career, most of them on the prestigious British label Warp, which will be releasing a new album from Jenkinson once again on which – after years of showing us his jazz side and focusing on the bass – promises to be a return to the fast, complex and sophisticated rhythms of his early work. Squarepusher presents a new completely electronic live show, accompanied on stage by LED electronic displays on which his new compositions will be projected.
