The veteran producer brings his audiovisual extravaganza to NYC.
For the past two decades, Tom “Squarepusher” Jenkinson has been one of electronic music’s true iconoclasts, beginning with his early hyperbreakbeat material to the recent Ufabulum, an album that fuses Jenkinson’s spiky rhythmic sense and love of sweeping melody.
