I hated Squarepusher’s Just a Souvenir album. I hated its jazzy electro, pompous, inhumane existence. It was a boring moodling odyssey. In a review, I wrote he played bass “like a coked up Howard Moon” so it was with some trepidation I listened to Numbers Lucent, his just-released 6-track EP. It still retains elements of the jazz fret-wankery but the happy finish is this dirty raveup aimed squarely (sorry) at the crusty dancefloor.
That’ll wake you up on a Monday. U:mack are bringing Squarepusher to Dublin on the 25th of April.
