MARK PRITCHARD - MP PRODUCTIONS EP1 12" (WARP)
Mark Pritchard (RELOAD, GLOBAL COMMUNICATION, JEDI KNIGHTS) returns with a six-track club-ready EP fronted by first offering "Be Like Water". Most of the tracks on this EP were first played in his WXAXRXP NTS mix last year. The AI-infused artwork is designed by longtime collaborator Jonathan Zawada. This EP sees Pritchard dip into a slew of aliases that have kept him busy over the years. This new club 12" nods to his mesmerizing formulas for making dance music, carrying the listener through grime, electronic and Afrika HiTech territory. "Be Like Water" is a devilish 8 bar grime instrumental. Harking back to an early '00s grime sound, Pritchard manipulates loops of distorted flutes, hollow chords and pentatonic scales to find an energy which is exciting, addictive and perfect for the club.
