RIYL: Aphex Twin, Autechre, Mouse on Mars

Label: Warp Records

English electronic god Thomas Jenkinson, known to the world as Squarepusher, pushed drum and bass to uncharted waters when his 1996 classic record Feed Me Weird Things was unleashed to the world. Richard D. James himself was quoted as saying “sound like sound never sounded before… Squarepusher gives us the SOUND of SOUND.” An epic brain liquefier of a debut, Feed Me Weird Things added a jazzy, psychedelic edge to a fairly homogenized and well-established genre of dance music. Released on Rephlex Records, this record was the jumping off point to an ever-expanding reservoir of forward-thinking electronic bliss. Not too long later, Warp Records would snatch Jenkinson up and continue a working relationship that would span 3 decades and a slew of pivotal records including 1998’s Music is Rotted One Note, 2003’s Ultravisitor and 2006’s Hello Everything.

Listen to Tundra below, often cited as one of the best drum and bass tracks in history.
