Synchromesh was a kind of bonkers sound lab prototype for Elite Force. The earliest Synchromesh productions date back to 1992 and act as a bridging period between the college rock of Headless Chickens and the dance-floor fire of Elite Force. The music ranges from deep and dirty lo-fi trip-hop to proto acid-breaks, to frenetic industrial jackhammer-beats.
Very little of Synchromesh material saw the light of day with just one white label EP ('EP#1') in existence limited to around 400 copies. The lead track, 'Combat Squad' was supported by The Chemical Brothers and subsequently picked up for release on the seminal big beat label, Wall of Sound, as part of their 'Dig The New Breed' compilation. A reworked version of 'Combat Squad' appeared on Fused & Bruised in 1996. Beyond a couple of remixes for Flicker Noise and Collapsed Lung the name wasn't seen again… until now.
Look out for an album's worth of Synchromesh material as part of the 'From The Vaults' series in January 2020.
