Squarepushers's Shobaleader One first emerged as a vehicle for Jenkinson’s group compositions and evolved into the killer release ‘d’Demonstrator’.

Shobaleader One’s thrilling Brighton and London debut shows last October were rapturously praised by both critics and fans alike, who marvelled in hearing seminal Squarepusher classics brought to life by a smoking hot band of virtuosic, funky-as-hell musicians, including Mr Jenkinson himself.
