Tegleg Records: Sponic Mesh Two / Various
Sponic Mesh two is an excellent double CD compilation from Tegleg Records (Hull, UK) showcasing a diverse range of local and international artists. This is the second release in the Sponic Mesh series featuring an impressive collection of forty tracks by twenty artists. Sponic Mesh Two brings together an eclectic mix of styles that gel with a sense of atmosphere running throughout the two CDs. The ethos behind Tegleg Records is as much influenced by musique concrete pioneer Pierre Schaeffer and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop as it is by the IDM stylings of Warp, Planet Mu and Skam Records. The driving force behind Tegleg Records are DXN, Sporsmaal2 and Keith Bianchi who each bring their unique brand of exciting, experimental, psychedelic, glitchtronica to the CD. Many of the Tegleg regulars are also back in Sponic Mesh Two. Plastic Carcass and Jacq Sporadic treat you to some more drill n bass antics. Rae Grebby enlightens you with a musical twist on his usual cut-up cheekiness, and Klint Fostex brings another helping of his midi jazz style. Hull's rising star of electronica Endoflevelbaddie makes an appearance on CD1 with a more down tempo offering than his usual dance floor orientated style, taking you on a magical trip through the 'Giant Mushroom Forrest'. Other great new artists emerge from the UK, with contributions from Mr Bear, Url Sruggs, Trey Electric, Cad Barga, Lutkin, Kalabi and HyperSonic Resonator. International artists such as OcOsi (SPAIN), Cagey House (USA) and Squid Leader (USA), RandomDotEns (FRANCE) also make fine contributions to this dynamic and electrifying compilation. Available in mp3 format and limited edition double CD with a specially designed laser cut case, grab yourself a copy before they run out.
