The super-fast follow-up EP to 'Be Up A Hello' album, out earlier in 2020. Our man 'pusher is obviously a hard-worker to have so much material out so quickly. We're just happy to have him back.
+ 12” in poly liner in printed outer sleeve.

Following widespread acclaim for his recent album ‘Be Up A Hello’, Squarepusher (Tom Jenkinson) will be opening a new chapter to this musical journey with the ‘Lamental’ EP release.
Shining a light on the more melodic aspects of ‘Be Up A Hello’, the ‘Lamental’ EP reveals a contemplative side to the music Tom has been making over the last few years. The spacey, squelchy synth techno of ‘The Paris Track’ is a new accelerated interpretation of ‘Detroit People Mover’ which is taken from the album, where it offers a cinematic contrast to the high-octane rave rush of the first four tracks.
Originally composed as a response to the EU referendum in 2016, Tom made the score and recorded stems of his beautifully plaintive, wave-like slow roller ‘MIDI Sans Frontières’ available to all, encouraging remixers to participate as a form of “internationalist collaboration with sound makers, irrespective of what kind of music they make, where they live, their background or their age.” Also included on the EP is his own new ‘Avec Batterie’ deep breakbeat rework of the track.
Tom Jenkinson makes manic, schizoid, experimental drum'n'bass with a heavy progressive jazz influence and a lean toward pushing the clichés of the genre out the proverbial window.
A skilled bassist and multi-instrumentalist, Jenkinson's fretless accompaniment is a staple of his music and one of the more obvious affiliations with jazz (although his formal arrangements are often as jazz-derived as his playing).
