Aphex Twin is set to make his live return to the US this December, at Day For Night Festival, December 17-18th, his first official performance since the release of his LP Syro. This album marked his first release in 14 years and has been followed by the release of three widely praised, creatively diverse EPs: Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments pt2, Orphaned Deejay Selek (2006-2008) under the AFX moniker, and the recent Cheetah.
Tom Jenkinson will be performing a Squarepusher set Day for Night Festival, with additional special select performances with his extraordinary band Shobaleader One. Following some dynamite inaugural European shows this year, the group have been deep in rehearsal mode, honing and expanding a set that’ll be even more incendiary and dynamic than this first run.
Shobaleader One has emerged as a vehicle for Jenkinson’s group compositions and he has been developing this approach to writing and performing with a band, working with an ensemble of like-minded musicians to develop new ideas and reinterpret choice classics from the Squarepusher catalogue.
