On "Big Loada" Squarepusher somewhat departs from his often jazz-heavy music.
This one being the club-friendly electronica that warp artist are often the antithesis of.
Tom's cd Big Loada is one of the best things I have heard in a long time.

 CD Review: Squarepusher Big Loada   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
"Big Loada" and the new album, "Music is Rotted One Note" are my first exposure to Tom's music and I'm very impressed by both even though these 2 discs are very different from one another.
"Big Loada" is insanely complex, jazzy, hyperspeed drill 'n bass with the usual quirky samples and melodies (ala Aphex Twin, u-ziq, etc) and lots of bass guitar fills *played* by Tom.
Each song is a hodgepodge, cut 'n paste smorbasbord of percussion, bass, bass guitar, and all sorts of miscellaneous bleeps, bells, whistles and keyboard sounds all tightly woven together in a brain numbing blast of sound.

 Music CD: Big Loada. Squarepusher Tracks: Come On My Selector, A Journey To Reedham (7 A.M. Mix), Full Rinse, Massif ...
You don't have to be a Squarepusher expert to tell: if your copy of "Loada" has 7 tracks on it, it's REALLY "Budakahn Microphone." "Big Loada" has 12 tracks.
Comment: i don't know if anybody else has experienced this, but upon receiving Big Loada i immediately shoved it into my cd player, but was surprised to hear the tracks from budakhan mindphone (another of mr.
i thought it was a joke, but i've done everything i know to do to verify this and it's definitely budakhan mindphone wearing the garb of big loada--even the pressed cd has the big loada title on it.

 Squarepusher   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
It's an expanded version of last year's British EP Big Loada, a flea circus of beats that zoom around so fast they seem to be skidding out of control.
The high-speed breakbeats that provide the backbone of a normal drum 'n' bass track are freed to become the lead instrument, collapsing and expanding into arrhythmic patterns of skids, rolls, scrapes, and beat-decentering accents.
His point about depth versus detail is arguable, though: the reason Big Loada is so effective is that it's as deep as a skipping stone -- in other words, not at all when it's working right.

 Disquiet: reports: Ninja's Big Dada MP3 hoard   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
The relationship between the worlds of electronic music and hip-hop is particularly evident in the form of Big Dada Records, a rap record label that is an offshoot of Ninja Tune Records, which is the British home to such accomplished electronicisists as Amon Tobin, Funki Porcini and Coldcut.
Big Dada has recently released for free downloading and streaming ten promotional cuts by various of its artists, plus an additional six promotional videos for streaming.
Listen past the rapping, and the sonic elements share a common ground with Ninja-style electronic music, with their emphasis on low-budget electronics, danceable rhythms, and taut samples.

 CD Review: Squarepusher presents Selection Sixteen   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
This one, despite the addition of 4 'bonus' tracks (also available on the bonus 10" the comes with the vinyl version), may also be considered a mini album since it clocks in at less than 47 minutes.
It seems that Jenkinson has decided to explore a little of everything he does within this collection of short tracks: "Big Loada"-style hyper drum 'n bass and 303 acid, "Music is Rotted One Note"-style future jazz (mostly the shorter pieces), future hip hop, indescribable weirdness and various combinations of the above.
A few comments on some of my favorite tracks: "Square Rave" is classic uptempo Big Loada-era Squarepusher.

 Eye Weekly - A Dish well-served - 07.19.01
They often pull from trance's hypnotic edge or bust out hard-hitting big beats, introducing an aspect lacking in most house: excitement.
Despite being slightly less engaging than the syncopated jazz moods of Music Is Rotted One Note and the irresistible candy flavour of Big Loada, Go Plastic will provide Square-junkies their fix with its focus on texture, technological precision and the Pusher's ability to confound.
But be sure to check the EP version of the album's single, "My Red Hot Car (Girl)," a rollicking ride through mock-Cher territory complete with hilarious vocodered vocals, an impossibly catchy synth-line and a fragmented two-step, making it the centrepiece of a very well-rounded EP.

Big Loada is another ground-breaking EP from Squarepusher.
In this release, Tom Jenkinson continues to do what he does best—screw with his listeners’ minds through intricately programmed jazz-riff percussion.
The Nothing Records version adds tracks from the Port Rhombus and Vic Acid EPs, which seem to fit in rather well with the later Big Loada material.

Big Loada, Hard Normal Daddy & Go Plastic are essential!
Prepare yourself for beautifully simple melodies woven through a harsh industrial soundscape frequently scarred by rapid, harsh cut-up breaks which almost defy logic.
Big Loada could sit comfortably alongside such works as Captain Beefheart's Trout Mask Replica, or more recently Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works Volume II since it embodies the creative genius of Beefheart with the audio mastery of Aphex Twin.

 Squarepusher - Go Plastic - Review - Stylus Magazine
During the large number of releases in 1998 and 1999 Jenkinson went away from the spastic sped-up breakbeats of his full length release Big Loada.
Citing that he had taken drum 'n' bass as fast and as crazy as it could gone, Jenkinson released the album "Music is Rotted One Note," an avant-jazz record that took much more from Lamonte Young and Miles Davis than it took from either Goldie or Aphex Twin.
As for the rest of the tracks, they are mostly drill 'n' bass influenced with a few exceptions along the way.

Perhaps you don't have Big Loada at all but the idea of Big Loada.
However, one could argue that you have, indeed, two albums, and they have compact disc in common, universally speaking.
Whatever the case may be, it seems like you bought a loada crap.

 Squarepusher - Music Is Rotted One Note - almost cool music review
There was something about his maniac snare rushes, light melodies and overall inventive sound that quite simply blew my mind.
I'd never heard anything quite like it and when Big Loada came out, it knocked my socks off as well.
When the first reports started coming back about Music Is Rotted One Note, they were calling it a departure from his trademark sound and many people were actually kind of torqued off about it.

 Squarepusher: Go Plastic: Pitchfork Record Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
The sad fact is, either of these options would have produced better results than the one he ultimately chose: rehashing.
On Go Plastic, Jenkinson picks up where his Big Loada EP left off, almost as if Music is Rotted One Note had never existed.
"Tommib" suffers a similar fate-- a beautiful echo of the majestic synthtones and hopeful melodies of Big Loada, sans percussion, is given a runtime of 1:19.

 Big Loada - Compare prices
Drill & bass don Squarepusher has always enjoyed shoving the musical envelope as hard as he can.
Big Loada, which arrived a year after the delectably cheeky Hard Normal Daddy in 1996, is as good a place as any to sample his distinctive, breakbeat-addled post-rave.
More an elaborate EP than a full-length album, it nonetheless throws more action into its seven cuts than most people muster over a normal long-player.

 Splendid Magazine reviews Machine Girl / Enduser: Untitled
As you listen to this record, you'll have to decide if hearing the same ideas you've heard so many times with artists like Squarepusher is something you can handle...over and over.
Machine Girl's set is full of speed-demon breaks, abstract cuts, skewed forms, hyperactive melodies, explosions, sci-fi atmospheres and other moments of mayhem that honestly aren't anywhere near as exciting as they were the first time you heard them, on Squarepusher's Big Loada and Hard Normal Daddy.
Apart from the really cool hardcore rap-toasting on Enduser's "Beatdown", side B is generally more of the same until it sinks down into a melancholy mix of Boards of Canada warmth and robotic grooves for the finale ("Port 666 (Line 47 RMX)").

 The History of Rock Music. Squarepusher: biography, discography, reviews, links
The new synthesis shines in Papalon, a touching jazz madrigal led by (the electronic equivalent of) bassoon and vibes, a chromatic orgy worthy of the most astral ECM sound.
The mini-album Big Loada (Warp, 1997) includes one more of his classics, A Journey To Reedham
Freed of samples and drum machines, on Music Is Rotted One Note (Nothing, 1998) Jenkinson vents his love for Miles Davis (the frenetic jazz-rock of Don't Go Plastic, the discrete heartbeat of Theme from Vertical Hold) and John Coltrane (the abstract liquid structures of Dust Switch, the astral swirls of 137).

 Squarepusher interview
"Chin Hippy" and Big Loada were the sound of technology gone utterly bonkers, threatening to bust out of your speakers and come after you.
If drum machines and sequencers were originally thought of as a means to create dance music, this was something you could only listen in awe to and wonder how your ear and brain could keep up.
For me, I think Big Loada was the definitive breakbeat record.

Squarepusher by far is the most talented idm drum and bass artist there is. I don't know what one reviewer was talking about Hard NOrmal Daddy being better than burningn' tree, since Burningn' Tree and Feed Me Wierd things are tied for the best two albums ever (oh, w/ autechre's incunabula).
But this comes in a close second tied with the infamous Big Loada.
Far better than Burnin' n tree, still you can't help to miss something after have listened to Big loada which together with this cd are his best yet.

Re: Big Loada EP: "Higher IDM quotient than previous releases (audible in the melancholic swirls of melody-sound), but with the stick-tub-amp ratio on full.
The indecipherable voice overs (notably, MC Twintub's 'Contribution' to 'Full Rinse', sure to bring a tear to Conrad's eye...) and overall blown sonics succeed in leaving your scalp more than agitated.
Which is what makes the lead single from his upcoming album so mindbendingly delicious.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer article Downloading Music a Blow to Retailers this could very well be the result.
Now I am not so concerned with the Wallmarts or other big box retailers so much as the cool independent record stores that are still vital to the kinds of bands that I, and a large number of people, like and want to support.
it just seems to me that people want to "own stuff"...and all this stuff about record stores comletely disappearing in the next five years is a big loada.

A mini-album of sorts, Big Loada finds Tom Jenkinson playing the genre game a bit, skipping from new wave-y breakbeat to ragga hardstep to the tinker toy 303 jungle of recent Aphex and mu-Ziq.
Not as organized or polished as the Hard Normal Daddy LP, which preceded it by a scant few months, but a bit more varied and developed than his Rephlex, Spymania, Dragon Disc, etc. releases.
