SQUAREPUSHER ‘Feed Me New Things’

May 30, 2021 | Reissue, Reviews

Uber cool, jazz inflected, drill ‘n' bass

Maybe the most highly anticipated re-release of the year, Squarepusher’s debut was, and still remains, a spinetingling proposition. Feed Me Strange Things oozes class and shouts from the roof tops, ‘I’m a bright new thing and you probably won’t understand me.Tom Jenkinson was just 21. Insert you own expletive here ________ .

An overwhelming onslaught of pure artistry. The control of the uber cool, jazz inflected, drill ‘n’ bass, is composed of the finest alchemy, and maybe not bettered since, even by the man himself. The performed and the programmed do battle and we’re the winner. One can sit in the eye of the storm and be at one with the beat or brave being outside to witness the chaos.

Twenty five years is a long time, and the student became the teacher, but this pupil’s first assignment was a thing of beauty.
