Boomkat Product Review:
Squarepusher and Warp follow up the finger melting jazz-fusion noodling of his 'Just A Souvenir' set with a brilliant mini album of floor dedicated cuts making a return to the breaks mentallism of yesteryear. Touching on a range of blatant influences from '92 breakbeat 'ardcore to darkside junglist mayhem and dousing them in electric jazz fretwork this is a return to the Squarepusher sound which captivated so many heads between 1997's 'Hard Normal daddy' and 2001's 'My Red Hot Car'. 'Zounds Perspex' Is an outright floor mover, with raving piano riffs and twisup' breakbeats contorted around Jenkinson's flying fingerwork, while 'Paadise garage' and 'Heliacal Torch' both burn brightly with 140bpm ravers rhythms providing solid grounding for space tripping fusion constructions. On the flipside the bpms swing upwards and the vibe becomes considerably more unhinged with 'Arterial fantasy', entering classic drill 'n bass territory with hyper modified 'ardcore riffs skillfully mutilated for raving footwork, leaving 'Illegal Dustbin' to polish off any foolhardy nutters with a barrage of breakcore.
