VIDEO: Squarepusher Channels Deadmau5 and Daft Punk In New Album Trailer

Leave it to Squarepusher—a BPM-bumping pioneer who’s never been a big fan of the press—to schedule the live premiere of his new Ufabulum LP right in the middle of South By Southwest. Tickets for the New York show are available through Webster Hall’s site, who are mistakenly advertising the gig as a Shobaleader One set at the moment. Silly promoters!

“I’ve started thinking about pure electronic music again,” Squarepusher said in a statement, confirming our hope that he’s stopped playing wanky, bass-led jazz music for the moment. “[Expect] something very melodic, very aggressive.”

Get a taste of what the producer means in a post-Daft Punk trailer below, along with some overseas tour dates. Ufabulum hits shops on May 15th through Warp…
