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.”
