Boomkat Product Review:
Mesak turns on the sweet 'n salty skweee charm for Cleaning Tapes. "Frottage Frottage follows 2014's 'howto readme' released on Harmoenia and there's some clear lineage between the two. The stripped back electro funk of previous releases is more heavily weighted with saturated drums, globular bass lines, laser blast synths and pitted with dense interference. Mesak demonstrates a more robust and 'physical' techno leaning sound, not in a typically industrial sense but more so feeling like sound design for whatever undetected micro movements and erroneous processes take place inside heaps of electrical clobber all running through one an other. It's a thorough elaboration on what skweee is all about - ringing out any and all sound from cheap bits of equipment and with Frottage, Mesak has scraped, rubbed and scoured his gear for all its worth, turning over circuits for every blip, hiss and crackle."
