19.12.2011 Merry Christmas

Soon it will be time again where the annual counter jumps forward one position. 2012 promises, at that time, to be an exciting and well-filled mesh year.

Since early September, Mark and Rich have been writing new songs for their 6th studio album. And the first appearance in the new year is already confirmed: mesh play at the Nordstern Festival at Hamburg's City Park on 14th July 2012. As we know the guys, they will certainly present us with one or two of the new tracks.

The mesh Fan Club Team wishes you a Merry Christmas!

18.01.2011 mesh announce remix album "An Alternative Solution"!

A Perfect Solution, the latest album from mesh, was surely one of the highlight releases of recent years. 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", says mesh singer Mark Hockings. "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."
The results speak for themselves, then many of the mixes stand up to the original versions, without ripping the original song completely out of its musical context. All eleven 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 bands 15 year history, including Iris, Portion Control, Zeromancer, Parralox, and Assemblage 23.

Look for "Alternative Solution" in May 2011.
