Squarepusher – Selection Sixteen (1999) [Electronica / Drill’n’Bass] February 22, 2006

Selection Sixteen alternates what sounds like outtakes from his last LP (Music Is Rotted One Note) — that is, short organic fusion cast-offs — with a set of hard-edged acid tracks, most of which chart the hyperkinetic drum’n’bass programming that fans expect. The album comes off surprisingly well, given both the glut of Squarepusher material in 1999, and the fact that Jenkinson is mixing’n’matching crazed drill’n’bass and more stately jazz-fusion, with little regard for album flow.

Selection Sixteen alterna lo que suena como tomas extras de su último LP (Music Is Rotted One Note) — es decir, cortos desechos orgánicos de fusion — con un conjunto de duras pistas ácidas, la mayoría de las cuales siguen muy de cerca la hiperquinética programación drum’n’bass que los fans esperan. El álbum sale parado bastante bien, tomando en cuenta el exceso de material de Squarepusher en 1999 y el hecho de que Jenkinson mezcla con desenfado drill’n’bass demente con un jazz-fusion más señorial, con poca consideración hacia el fluir natural del álbum.
