New Squarepusher video just went up today. Hot damn. The teaser has been floating around for a minute now and now that the official video is out we're even more excited for his Ufabulum album to drop on May 14th. Warp Records has put together a few different packages for the album. Of course there's a special edition vinyl pack. That one comes packed in a rigid box, lid wrapped and lined in black, screen printed in phosphorescent and regular ink, so that when the lights go out, the Squarepusher logo is revealed. The pack contains 2 x LP in individual sleeves, a 12 page 300x300mm booklet, download code card and the 3 track "Enstrobia" EP on CD. You can pre order the album via Bleep here.
For a while I had apocalyptic nightmares about trails of nuclear missiles in the night sky. So I aimed to recreate that strange combination of exhilaration, terror and sadness both visually and emotionally through this piece. It lead to the idea of a spacecraft leaving earth at vast speed to escape, but oddly the music also made me think of it flying through a library. So I generated the visual aspect such that, as the piece progresses, it seems as if the viewer is ever accelerating through massive corridors of books. -Squarepusher on Dark Steering
