Squarepusher

Sunday 7:50–8:50 Red Stage

With a legacy spanning more than two decades and a style that incorporates techno, drum and bass, acid house, and jazz, Squarepusher has truly set himself apart when it comes to what falls under the umbrella of electronic music. Squarepusher  one of several pseudonyms for UK recording artist Tom Jenkinson — is known for his style of rapid-fire beats often combined with fusion jazz and synth lines. It was apparent from his earliest releases that Jenkinson was able to present tracks ranging from heavy break-beat styles to more ambient dynamics. 2004’s Ultravisitor garnered international attention for its raw style and unique compositions. With more than a dozen full-length releases, he has received critical acclaim for his ever-evolving sound and continues to push the boundaries of electronic music. His latest album, 2015’s Damogen Furies, was highly praised by Pitchfork and NME and reached No. 8 on Billboard’s US Dance/Electronic Albums chart.
