+ Totally psyched on this one. A long-overdue return from an old friend.

After a 5 year hiatus that has seen him delve into a range of diverse musical projects, Squarepusher will return with a long awaited album 'Be Up A Hello'.

+ First run of the LP comes housed in a die-cut sleeve, bundled with four 12" art prints.

Fans can enjoy a taster as the double-A side 12” Vortrack will be released on the 6th of December, featuring Squarepusher's Fracture Remix which already caused a stir when it was dropped into his brain-melting breakbeat and jungle set for Warp's 30th anniversary NTS takeover in June.

With this new album, Tom Jenkinson (Squarepusher) has returned to using a bewildering array of vintage analogue and digital hardware, the same equipment that first helped him develop his sound in the early '90s. Something of a 180 degree turn, these synths, effects units and even a Commodore Vic20 are in complete contrast to the tools he used to create 2015’s 'Damogen Furies' - cutting edge software that Tom developed over the course of 15 years.

The result is 'Be Up A Hello', an album that is celebratory with rinsing breakbeat tracks such as Nervelevers and Terminal Slam - classic floor fillers - as well pieces loaded with visceral atmosphere and melody in Squarepusher’s inimitable style.

Darker moments such as Vortrack and Mekrev Bass illustrate Tom's continuing fascination with finely balanced psychological overload. As such, Be Up A Hello gives a nod to the mayhem, joyousness and abandon of the DIY Essex rave scene that was a strong determinant in Tom's work. 

+ LP format includes download.
