Squarepusher: "Dark Steering"

Tom Jenkinson is supposedly backing off the live instruments for the upcoming Squarepusher album Ufabulum, which is fine by me. I enjoyed his efforts with traditional instrumentation - particularly the slap bass - but I can't say I liked it any more or less than his earlier, all electronic material, so sure... let's kick it old school. Jenks baby(*) did his own visuals for this clip, which presumably will be representative of what you'll see at any live engagements he books in the near future. Musically it doesn't seem crazy spastic at first, but if you ride it out until the end your drill & bass boner will pop. Promise.

(*) obligatory Monty Python non sequitur
