There are numerous ways in which I’m concerned with this music that a listener just wouldn’t be. So I think that kind of assessment is really public domain. I don’t know what I can offer in that respect. I can certainly say the idea of trying to replicate something I’ve done in the past is quite offensive to me. Trying to recapture something I was doing 15 years ago, that’s certainly a long way from my intentions.
So far, I am very pleased with the new Squarepusher record. I’m also enjoying how some critics can’t get a handle on it. That means he’s doing his job properly. As the artist predicted, it is both melodic and aggressive. The grooves devolve to an almost unrecognizable digital mash, but are buoyed by the composer’s sense of melodic narrative. The destructive decoration is the point, but it is anchored to very human sounding notes.
Squarepusher on his new project:
I’ve started thinking about pure electronic music again. Something very melodic, very aggressive
Just my got my tickets to what is, so far, the only US date. Based on the taste of Ufabulum that was released today, I think it will be quite a night.
