Following the critically acclaimed release of ‘Ufabulum’ on Warp Records last year Squarepusher’s new live show, an audiovisual assault featuring a synapse shorting LED display designed and programmed by himself, has wowed crowds around the world. From Sonar to LA’s Hardfest to a sold-out show at London’s Hackney Empire, it has been hailed as an “visual and audio feast that gave pretty much every other so-called AV show of recent times a thorough kicking” by Clash Magazine and “his most eye-popping set to date” by Metro.
For this very special show Squarepusher will be joined by two of the most interesting and intense acts working in electronic music today. Anyone with an interest in the more extreme ends of music will already be well acquainted with The Bug, Kevin Martin’s long running project fusing dub, dancehall, dubstep and electronica. The Bug’s music is the soundtrack to an apocalyptic soundclash and with the addition of legendary MCs Flowdan and Daddy Freddy the perfect entrée to the evening’s entertainment.
New DFA signings Factory Floor’s fusion of propulsive techno beats and Industrial synths has seen them hailed by everyone from The Quietus to DJ Mag. Here they treat us to a rare DJ set, a chance to peer inside the record collection of one of 2013’s most exciting acts ahead of their own debut album’s release.
One of the most forward thinking artists around Tom Jenkinson continues to break new boundaries with both his live and studio work. ‘Ufabulum Live’ sees Tom at the top of his powers in full control of every aspect of the night’s performance. In the incredible setting of Camden’s historic Roundhouse, witness to some of the most intense sound and light shows of the past 50 years, ‘Ufabulum Live’ should prove to be one of 2013’s must see shows.
“Another delightful victory for Tom Jenkinson, then, in a visual and audio feast that gave pretty much every other so-called AV show of recent times a thorough kicking” – Clash
“His most eye-popping set to date” – Metro
“It’s hard to imagine how LEDs can create such a spectacle, but when you’ve got thousands of them as a backdrop, lining the stage, on the front of your setup… The result (is) an engulfing visual journey into something not too dissimilar to the ‘Tron’ universe, sound tracked by Jenkinson’s suitably otherworldly, schizophrenic electronic brilliance” – Clash
“He continues to mine the rich musical borderlands between conceptual art and confrontational theatre” – The Quietus
“One of the best visual shows that dance music has ever witnessed” – AAA Music
