On Fire Again

I got looking for Squarepushers soundcloud a while back to see if he had a stream of his newest EP, and sadly there wasn't. Strangely there were two official Squarepusher accounts though, so he must've forgotten he had one, or mucked up like me and had to make a new email address. It was there I found this very, very interesting mix. I couldn't pass this up after reading the description and tracklist, this is seriously like most of my favourite 'Pusher tracks in one giant mix and it's bloody brilliant. Tracklist after I quote 'Pusher's reasoning for it.
"The second of a series of what I call 'horizontal slices.' The idea is that there are several long running 'themes' in my work -in other words, groups of pieces across time that partake of some kind of stylistic commonality. So whilst any given group will draw from nearly twenty years of releases, it will have an aesthetic unity that individual albums have often shunned. Of course, it's up to the listener to make sense (or otherwise) of what that aesthetic may be!" - Tom Jenkinson, March 2013
