Squarepusher – “Dark Steering” (From the “Ufabulum” LP) (Official Video)

Squarepusher’s latest “Dark Steering” is the musical offspring of dot matrix printers, ringtones from ’94, 8-bit motorcycle gear changes, and winning moves in video games.

Despite the fuzz and blur of the retro-synths and a bassline that is more acidic than a mouthful of lemons, limes, and sulphuric rain, the beats here are precisely sliced: the drum production sounds crisper than taking a Ginsu knife and a laser-guided tape-measure to a head of iceberg lettuce.
