Plus support from Sherwood and Pinch

‘One of the most divisive figures in electronic music, plundering electric jazz and rave music for his own extremist ends, idolized and reviled in seemingly equal amounts.’ Pitchfork

Since his earliest sonic experiments in the 1990s, revered producer, bass virtuoso, composer and sound artist Squarepusher aka Tom Jenkinson has constantly strived to push the boundaries and limits of music, drawing on influences as broad as drum and bass, acid house, jazz and electroacoustic music. 

Last year, he collaborated with a team of Japanese robotocists for an EP performed entirely by robots. Back with eagerly anticipated new material, Squarepusher brings his all-new live show to Brighton Festival. Jenkinson Told BBC 6Music, ‘It’ll be very fast, very experimental, it’ll be an evening of extremity… the music I’m writing is born to be heard at a very high volume on stage, accompanied by a visually slamming presentation.’

Sherwood & Pinch is the on-going collaboration between Adrian Sherwood, the magisterial dub innovator and owner of the seminal, cutting edge label On-U Sound, and Pinch, the brains behind the Tectonic label and master of darkly filtered bass science. Since dropping their first singles, Bring Me Weed & Music Killer, Sherwood and Pinch have continued to devastate the dance floors at events around the world with their deeply psychedelic, bass-driven, futuristic dub wizardry.
