In 2003, Dan Cross received funding from Hull Time Based Arts to produce a compilation CD Sponic Mesh featuring local electronic producers and sound artists. This project was released under the name Tegleg Records.
25 Track Compilation CD
Haunting, reflective, cheeky, playful, twisted and sublime.
Sponic Mesh takes the listener on a journey through many different moods and and textures. Featuring a collection of talented artists and producers from diverse backgrounds.
From the Drill n Bass beat trickery of Jaqc Sporadic to Keith Bianchi's reworking of the Highway Code for the ASBO generation in 'Driving Success' to the sultry electronica of u39c to Rae Grebby's hilarious interweaving of Star Trek and The Three Stooges in 'Two Exponents' to sublime sound-scape of DXN's 'Inside the String Machine'. Sponic Mesh definitely amounts to more than the sum of its parts.For anyone wishing to bend and twist their idea of what electronic music should be, take a ride with Sponic Mesh.
In 2007, Dan Cross formed a collective with fellow Tegleg artists Keith Bianchi and Mick Robinson transforming Tegleg Records in to what it is now. With that Sponic Mesh 2, a double CD release was formed.
2 CD's with 40 tracks and 20 artists
Sponic Mesh two is a 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.
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 Forest’.
Other great new artists emerge from the UK, with contributions from Mr Bear, Url Sruggs, Trey Electric, Cad Barga, Lutkin, Kalabi and Hyper Sonic 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.
