18.10.2013 New single "Adjust Your Set" to be released on 8 November 2013

Adjust Your Set Cover

mesh are preparing for their second strike: On their new single Adjust Your Set, the Bristol Duo aims at dancefloors, radios and playlists around the globe. After this years’ very successful album Automation Baby, supported by the breathtaking single release Born To Lie, the next single presents typical mesh hooks, beats and melancholic moods, just a bit more enjoyable. mesh is well-known for world-class Electro-Pop with a dancefloor twist, and melodies that go right into your ears – and happen to stay there for a long time. However, Mark Hockings’ vocals and Richard Silverthorn’s melodies are known to run with deep lyrics and expressions that captivate the listener on a closer look.

The radio edit was produced by Nico "Mabose" Wieditz (And One), who also completely deconstructed the original for a more danceable club version. The result is sure to fill electronic dancefloors in no time. Also Rob Dusts gritty and beat-ridden remix of Adjust Your Set will appeal to the uncompromising Electro-DJ.

The package is topped off by one of mesh’s specialties: The exclusive B-Side Walk Of Shame is what makes this CD-Single a sure collector’s item for fans, as mesh have done it again: The B-Side defies its name in terms of quality. A strong second single!

1. Adjust Your Set (MABOSE Radio Version)
2. Adjust Your Set (MABOSE Club Version)
3. Walk Of Shame
4. Adjust Your Set (MABOSE Ballad Version)
