M.E.S.H. – Damaged MercPosted: July 19, 2016
[ PAN, 2016 ]
Compared to last year’s supercold, dystopian Piteous Gate, the new EP by the Berlin based producer M.E.S.H. feels almost like a pop record: a much more rhythm and club oriented enterprise, it still feels futuristic and austere, but there are some clearly recognizable melodies and semi-danceable drum patterns, even though if you tried to actually dance to them they would make you look like a paraplegic. Jagged edges and sharp stops make a good deconstruction of club music standards and push it well into the “brainy dance music” territory, leaving much more to the ears than to the body. But you can’t deny that “Victim Lord” has that 2050 gangsta flair. Recommended!
