    Tracks of the Week: Shapes

    Squarepusher "Port Rhombus" - Before Tom Jenkinson of Squarepusher delved into jazz fusion on his late 90s albums, he was working up a storm with his fierce bass playing and drum programming. This track pre-dates my two favorite Squarepusher albums Feed Me Weird Things and Hard Normal Daddy, but I think it's the best thing he's produced. It has it all: frenetic percussion, gorgeous bass lines, and a deadly melody that rises up from the chaos. Out of print.

    Jan Jelinek "Silver Circle" - In stark contrast to "Port Rhombus," German electronic producer Jan Jelinek offers a spellbinding, mellow treat here. Exclusively from the Staedtizism 3 compilation, this track straddles the lines between jazz, weird funk, hip-hop, and microhouse. So I'm tossing this in a brand new genre I like to call minimalist glitch lounge hop. Buy It.
