"The perfect amalgam of beatific melodies and percussive chaos"--The
Guardian

Leading U.K. electronica innovator Tom Jenkinson—a.k.a. Squarepusher—has at last overcome his phobia about air travel and is set for a series of much-anticipated U.S. tour dates.

With a brand new release for Warp Records (Ultravisitor) that's being touted as one of the new year's best, Squarepusher ups the ante for the burgeoning digital music scene. Hear Jenkinson's gloriously splintered rhythms as he pushes his computers and synths into hyperdrive, mashing up infectious electro melodies and accelerated beats. Opening the show are Cassetteboy, DJ Jonny J, and human beatbox Kenny Muhammad The Human Orchestra.
