On March 10, they are going to release album Elekrac featuring instrumental versions of Squarepusher’s 11 hits.
In the summer of 2009, a group of relatively unknown musicians got in contact with Squarepusher and wanted to form the “fantasy group” he had written about in connection with his album Just A Souvenir. At first, he thought it was a ridiculous idea, but impressed by their perseverance, he agreed to meet them in person. Their virtuosity convinced Squarepusher to make this happen. A five-member ensemble started working on album d’Demonstrator that was released via Warp Music on October 18, 2010. Since then, they have played a number of shows famed for their spellbinding atmosphere. As skiddle.com describes: “Witnessing the intricacies of the songs played with such dexterity, at times the only thing left to do is laugh.”
