Shobaleader One UK
Shobaleader One is the latest project from veteran techno/ambient/drum & bass/acid house/electronica auteur and self-confessed “musical flamethrower” Squarepusher (aka Tom Jenkinson).
Bored by the conservatism of the conventional band format, he’s spent twenty years and more making adventurous electronic music but recently concluded that the genre had begun “to assume a troubling air of painting-by-numbers pointlessness.”
Mixing live instruments with programmed synths and featuring a mysterious line-up that includes keyboardist Strobe Nazard, guitarist Arg Nution and drummer Company Laser, Shobaleader One is his response. The outfit has just released its first album Elektrac, featuring re-workings of eleven Squarepusher classics.http://shobaleader.one
