Squarepusher - "Ultravisitor"
(Warp 2003)

Le neuvième album de Squarepusher semble clore -d'une fort belle manière- une épopée commencée en 1996 chez Rephlex et depuis 1997 chez Warp. En 8 ans Tom Jenkinson a exploré successivement les possibilités infinies de sa double basse, sa passion du jazz et de la musique classique, puis les breakbeats super-énervés de ce qu'on a fini par appeler de la "Drill'n'Bass". Avec "Ultravisitor", il condense tous ce qu'il a pu assimiler de ces diverses expérimentations en 80 minutes ultimes de ce qui semble être la touche finale d'un long processus de maturation. On y retrouve du dub hypnotique noisy-ambient ("Menelec", "Telluric Piece") et des morceaux de classique ("Andrei", "Tommib Help Buss", Everyday I love"), probablement afin d'apaiser le cerveau de l'auditeur après quelques passages "drill-n-bass-à-la-Warp", façon Autechre, Aphex Twin ou Squarepusher ("Ultravisitor", "Steinbolt", "District Line II"), des morceaux de bravoure de pur jazz 70's psychédélique limite fusion ("I Falcrum", "C-Town Smash"), et enfin quelques tracks d'abstract hip hop stupéfiants ("Lambic Poetry", "50 cycles")... Vous avez compris: il pourrait s'agir là du "meilleur album de Squarepusher", même si pour une partie des gens ça restera toujours du bruit inconcevable.
