Damogen Furies is less subtle and funky than Ufabulum, but it’s more focused. Here, Jenkinson commits to one primary thematic idea per song, and develops and interrupts it within the bounds of a clear larger structure. Tracks like opener "Stor Eiglass" and "Exjag Nives" introduce pleasant, portamento synth melodies that develop cleverly, spaced out with breakbeat and boiled wah-bass interludes. Moments like these get at what is most interesting about Squarepusher’s work. Even on an album as wholly electronic-sounding as Damogen Furies, Jenkinson's musicality remains organic and responsive.
ambient dub, and even humanly impossible compositional scores played by robots. Damogen Furies finds Jenkinson turning away from his more nuanced or minimally funky material and offering up an album of completely blown-out tones. Nearly everything on the album's eight songs sounds coated in distortion and chaos, though still distinctively Squarepusher at the core. Garbled beats and fuzzy synth tones take the form of highly compositional MIDI-prog on the dizzying "Kontenjaz" and a melodramatic electro-throwback horror movie score on "Baltang Ar.
Damogen Furies (CDr, Album, Copy Prot. This album is amazing. I had become a bit jaded with respect to Squarepusher having seen him live in the past and feeling that his range of sounds and styles had just become familiar to me. Despite my conscious awareness of the quality of his work I found myself not seeking it out. When I saw his performance at Day for Night in 2016 I was shocked.

Recorded at Square One using The System 4.0
This album was made using a bespoke system which has been in development for over a decade. Fragments of earlier versions of the system have been used on other recordings, but this project is the first occasion where all sounds have been generated and processed exclusively on instruments that I have programmed myself. The initial impetus to develope it came from a need to free myself from the constraints of using off-the-shelf gear and the culture of consumerism that engulfs electronic music making in particular. And I came to see that experimenting with the functionality of instruments helps to cultivate an experimental attitude to composing with them. Indeed, for me the process of designing instruments has become indissociable from composition. All of the recordings on this album were made in a single take with no edits, reflecting the system's orientation towards live performance. It is presented in defiance of the path of least resistance.
