Squarepusher- “Dark Steering” (Loved)

Producer Tom Jenkinson, a.k.a. Squarepusher, has just released a full track and music video from his forthcoming album, Ufabulum, which will be out in May on Warp. While Tom’s attempt at leading a full band in 2010 left a little to be desired, I’m liking where this new track is headed.

This guy’s primarily known for his work over the years in drum and bass, jazz fusion, and acid techno; however, “Dark Steering,” show’s he’s not beyond evolution or influence. I mean to say this old dog is learning new tricks, incorporating elements of not only dubstep but some of Daft Punk’s best musical concepts, too.

There’s a hyperactive climax toward the end of the track that reminds me of the Squarepusher I used to know, but this is definitely a new era in Jenkinson’s music.

    As a long time Squarepusher fan I have to say I’m really, really enjoying this.

    I was at his live show at Webster Hall in NYC, and it was KILLER. The visuals alone were worth the price of admission, never mind that the music was great.

    Dark Steering reminds a bit of the track by Cex called Trumpetflower (Scrubber Fox Remix).
