Marking a return to the vintage analogue equipment with which the producer developed his sound in the early ’90s.
Squarepusher is back after a five-year hiatus with a new album on Warp.
Be Up A Hello sees producer Tom Jenkinson abandoning the software he developed over 15 years to make albums like Ufabulum and Damogen Furies, instead returning to the equipment he used to define his sound in the early ’90s, including a collection of analogue synths, vintage effects units and a Commodore Vic20.
Since his 2015 album Damogen Furies, Jenkinson has scored a one hour episode of a show on CBeebies and collaborated with James McVinnie on an album of organ music, All Night Chroma. He also formed the speed jazz band Shobaleader One to reinterpret classic Squarepusher tracks.
Be Up A Hello arrives on January 31 and is available to pre-order now. The first single, ‘Vortrack’ and a ‘Fracture Remix’ is out on December 6.
