Having indulged almost every instrumental whim over the past ten years, Squarepusher drops his first exclusively electronic set since ’01’s Go Plastic. While the latter’s focus was on a blitzkrieg of brutalised breakbeats, the power here lies in growling dubstep-ish bass frequencies, melancholic synths and a world of dystopian dance textures. Although the visceral race car feedback – as on ‘Dark Steering’ and its bass-heavy counterpart ‘303 Scopem Hard’ – may divide his diehard fans, this is a hurricane of fresh air from one of music’s most imaginative extremists.
