Squarepusher premieres new single and video at the iconic Shibuya crossing in Tokyo

The video for Squarepusher’s new single Terminal Slam just got its first play today at 00:00 on the 30th of January on one of the huge TV screens that populate Tokyo’s Shibuya Crossing, probably the most recognisable intersection in Japan and thought to be the busiest in the world.

This was the perfect location to premiere the video to the new single Terminal Slam, set in a very near-future Tokyo and sees a young protagonist don augmented reality glasses to subvert and corrupt the barrage of commercial advertising. One of the many highlights on Squarepusher’s celebrated upcoming album, Be Up a Hello, this new single piles on the acid breaks at huge velocity designed for the most hectic of dancefloors and was matched perfectly by the frenetic, collapsing dystopian world created here.
