In a press release issued today by Warp, Squarepusher mastermind Tom Jenkinson states, "I've started thinking about pure electronic music again. Something very melodic, very aggressive." All we can say is, It's about damn time. The seminal UK artist has been caught up in a practically monogamous love affair with his bass guitar for the past six years or so, but—as that quote and the exciting album trailer below would lead you to believe—Jenkinson has apparently returned to his roots as a mind-blowing electronic music producer on his forthcoming new LP, Ufabulum. That record will drop on May 15 via Warp, and Squarepusher will be touring sporadically in support of its release. You can check out those dates underneath the video.
