Mesh are at it again
In 2009 we saw the release of the latest Mesh album “A Perfect Solution”. The boys from Bristol showcased both their club and alternative influences, creating a masterpiece caught between accessible beauty and bitter melancholy.
Up next is “An Alternative Solution”, a remix album with several unusual characteristics.
“We didn’t want to have big bands as remixers, but just friends we know personally, and who we know like our music, and with whom we have a relationship. The status of the remixers was secondary, the important thing was that the mixes were good. A friend will do a better mix for you than someone who is just getting a little cash for it.” Mesh singer Mark Hockings.
All 11 tracks from “A Perfect Solution” get the remix treatment here, and the remix album retains the original’s track order as well. In spite of its unconventional approach, Mesh have assembled an illustrious lineup of remixers from friendships built up over the band’s 15 year history, including Iris, Portion Control, Zeromancer, Parallox, and Assemblage 23.
Look for “An Alternative Solution” in May 2011.
