Judging by Squarepusher‘s previous single and by today’s shared ‘Nervelevers‘, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to state that Thomas Jenkinson‘s (yes, that’s his name!) long awaited album ‘Be Up A Hello‘ (out on January 31st, Warp Records) will be among 2020’s most notable releases.

Tom seems to be in top form, revisiting if not reimagining the golden Essex 90s rave days, with this absolute acid rave anthem ‘Nervelevers‘, a gem of unparalleled sound design, thunderous rhythm, idm finishing touches and brilliant melodies that will make us dance like androids! Hold your breath….
