Squarepusher Hello Everything
- Words: Robbie Mackey
- Label: Warp
Tom Jenkinson (a.k.a. Squarepusher) has rewarded the listening public with a plastic gift every year since ‘96. That‘s a 10-year, 10-album journey, stopping off in territories as varied as anxious breaks, fruity future-funk, jazz fusion, and schizoid D&B. But everything seemed to culminate on 2004's masterwork, Ultravisitor, a meaty, studied album that pulled from every influence at Jenkinson‘s disposal. So while Hello Everything boasts all of the stair-stepping synth, busy bass, and jazz structuring we've come to expect from Squarepusher, it seems a bit stuck in the shadow of a more complete record, and an increasingly imposing back catalog.
