Squarepusher – ‘Drax 2′ taken from forthcoming album ‘Ufabulum’ out 14th/15th May

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on April 26, 2012 by E.N.

Warp is excited to announce the premiere of a short film by The Creators Project. The film includes an exclusive interview with Squarepusher and live footage from his highly acclaimed appearance at the Creators Project: San Francisco event in March this year. You can also listen to the complete studio version of ‘Drax 2’ taken from the new album ‘Ufabulum’ released 14th May.

Squarepusher explains about new track ‘Drax 2’

As a boy I had a Ladybird book about power stations that I used to re-read every day. I’m obsessed with electrical energy and especially in the vast quantities generated by power stations. The sound of the massive electric motor from a fairground Ferris Wheel has always stayed humming in my head and lots of my synth sounds refer to it, as they do in this piece. From there I tried to generate images of bizarre transitory phenomena that I imagined could be found in the huge furnaces of power stations.”

Squarepusher – Dark Steering video

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on April 12, 2012 by E.N.

Warp Records is delighted to announce the video for the track ‘Dark Steering’ taken from Squarepusher’s forthcoming album ‘Ufabulum’ to be released 14th May (15th in N. America).

Camera Direction and Editing by Rollo Jackson

Squarepusher on Dark Steering:
“For a while I had apocalyptic nightmares about trails of nuclear missiles in the night sky. So I aimed to recreate that strange combination of exhilaration, terror and sadness both visually and emotionally through this piece. It lead to the idea of a spacecraft leaving earth at vast speed to escape, but oddly the music also made me think of it flying through a library. So I generated the visual aspect such that, as the piece progresses, it seems as if the viewer is ever accelerating through massive corridors of books.”
From inception, Squarepusher has worked on both the sonic and visual aspects of ‘Ufabulum’ as a united body of work. Now, following rapturously-received live performances of the material at events in Manchester, San Francisco and New York, Squarepusher fans from around the world will have the chance to experience the live spectacle as captured in the Dark Steering video for themselves. 
‘Ufabulum’ is released on phosphorescent Special Edition Vinyl and Special Edition CD (both include 3 track Enstrobia EP on CD), phosphorescent T-Shirt with album download, Regular CD and Download formats.
