Squarepusher – Music Is Rotted One Note


I've been trying to "educate" myself recently on perceived jazz-adjacent genres of the internet age like "Nu Jazz", "Dark Jazz" and "Jazztronica". Mostly these are jazz in no apparent sense, and the connection between my favourite genre and what is essentially electronic chill out music bewilders me. Also, most of these records don't appeal at all. This is one of the first that I have really enjoyed. I followed Squarepusher for the preceding but, whilst I knew he was an accomplished bassist, I had not realised that he'd taken this turn into music that is at least clearly informed by jazz fusion.

I really rated their first one. What did you make of this? I'd forgotten it was released

I really enjoyed it. Strangely emotional music. I don't know the first but I will certainly give it a listen.
