Tom Jenkinson, or Squarepusher as he’s better known, has been shifting musical frontiers for well over a decade and a half and is, simply, a musical vanguard. Farmfest welcomes his latest project, Shobaleader One, to the main stage for a phenomenal full band portrayal of Squarepusher classics from new album Elektrac (WARP Records).
Delivering choice tunes from albums like Hard Normal Daddy and Music is Rotted One Note, and with a mesmerising light show adding to what promises to be an otherworldly and unrelenting exploration of playfully warped electronic melodies, jazz drums and funk bass lines, this is a frenetic sonic assault to take us all to the peripherals of electronic music. And by the look and sound of things, that’s a pretty good place to be. You’d better get ready for this one!
