Squarepusher's got his funk on with his new project, Shobaleader One.
This ultra-violet super-funkulent video gives us mortals a taste of the eternal bassmasher's new sound A mini-album with nine tracks (d'Emonstration) is due for release in mid-October. He won't tell us who's in his new band other than to say they are "a bunch of kids" who are "pretty frightening players".
Meanwhile, he has hopped over to Ed Banger Records to release the first track from d'Emonstration: Cryptic Motion is a Daft Punk work-out backed with a sharp-as-hedgehogs Mr Ozio remix.
