Piteous Gate is the debut LP from M.E.S.H. a member of the notorious crew Janus; a nine track affair of widescreen club-rooted electronics and sound design club destroyers. Named in reference to a cult sci-fi novel The Shadow of the Torturer (notoriously hard to follow as the book unfolds) the sounds found within Piteous Gate are a mish-ma(e)sh of styles from club-rooted free wheeling hardstyle, grime indebted stripped-back awareness and even dare we say it, the spaciousness found between the drums of early dubstep but injected with a THX dolby surround sound Terminator 2 special effects futurism that's looking further out than most other producers in similar fields. Opener Piteous Gate sets the tone with a vast array of intricately manufactured presets to build a track of epic proportion. Optimate takes an almost trap like snare roll abut the industrial mechanisms still working away ensure the track has a menacing undercurrent to it. The various styles on show on paper almost shouldn't work but when strung together they create a seamless flow of intricate electronica that could only have been produced in the current internet age of super speed digest-all-your-influences-in-seconds music production, Piteous Gate offers a glimpse into another world of music production that mixes the experimental club grime of artists like Mumdance with early internet bulletin board notices and star gazing antics of Legowelt, one of the most crucial PAN's yet.
