Square Pusher: Tom Jenkinson Solo Bass Shows

img  Tobias

Interestingly, Squarepusher’s last album on Warp, “Hello Everything” has been greeted with positive, albeit mixed reactions throughout, but his bass abilities have been applauded by some of the most famous players in the game. The Red Hot Chillier Peppers’ Flea has been quoted on saying: "I am listening to Squarepusher. He is the best electric bass player on the earth, he is pushing the instrument the farthest. He is the best." And if you read his reviews for references, you will find almost all of them allude to his bass playing in some form or the other.

Warp records have put up a video of Tom Jenkinson perform on the BBC’s “Culture Show” and it is definitely proves that he is a man who not only cares for technique, but for feeling and subtle nuances as well, and who has developed a style that incorporates a lot of genres but refuses to be categorised. As such, he is not all that far off his main project, Squarepusher, after all.
