Pharma is an album by Nmesh, initially published by Orange Milk Records on cassette, and later given a vinyl repress by Geometric Lullaby. The release is the first album of Nmesh's since his ロストエデンへのパス split in 2015, and consists partly of lost or obscure tracks of his (dating back to 2010 in production with tracks such as Mall Full Of Drugs). The album is a departure from the artist's previous "classic-style" orientation in the genre and consists of much more experimental plunderphonic elements with core pieces of vaporwave in the mix.

In 2019 Nmesh conducted a remix compilation based on the track "Mall Full Of Drugs", published as Mall Full Of Remixes.

Notes

  • NΞ1✪NΞ1 was initially released as an exclusive track for HHW-MIX: #21 in October 2014.
  • Fall Any Vegetable was initially released as a part of the Orange Milk Compilation 2016 V/A release.
  • Cocktails In Space was, according to Nmesh, a track meant for a compilation that never came to fruition.
  • Weed Jesus, originally named ///WEED JESUS///, was Nmesh's contribution to the 4/20/'96 compilation.
  • NΞW JΛCK CITY was originally named 繁華街 NEW JACK CITY (DOWNTOWN NEW JACK CITY) during its release as a single in 2013.

Description

I listen to Nmesh albums differently than most music, with equal attention given to the pure musical aspects and the pillaging of old movie clips, commercials, and general media ephemeral. That these musical and non-musical strains cohere into something both listenable and exciting speaks to the adept curation and compositional sense at play. Pharma is the successor to previous Nmesh albums Nu.wav Hallucinations and Dream Sequins, and can be similarly viewed through the frame of an evolving vaporware scene or John Oswald’s plunderphonics movement, though neither tag fully encapsulates the album’s sound world and ethos. Pharma also dips into modern Big Beat and other electronic sub genres, made more prominent through remixes by artists like Odd Nosdam, Foodman, Traxman, Giganta, and more.
