As a co-resident of Berlin club night Janus, M.E.S.H. is constantly active bringing fragmented rhythms to the dance floor, re-figuring club dynamics on records such as Share The Blame and Scythians. His full-length debut Piteous Gate was a bold step forward, leaving behind much of the dance-informed elements of his previous work, instead creating an unpredictable, sometimes frightening, album of oblique, theatrical soundstages. Violent, cinematic effects enshroud ornate, virtually-acoustic instrumentation with an eerie calm ebbing beneath the flux — a sense of shocked ambivalence.
M.E.S.H. is part of the SHAPE Platform, funded by Creative Europe.
