Today, Sydney based electronic pioneer Mark Pritchard 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, save a couple he held back. MP Productions - EP 1 will be available on 12” on Warp Records via Inertia Music on November 13. Published by Warp Publishing and sub-published by Gaga Music for AUS/NZ.
'Be Like Water' is a devilish 8-bar grime instrumental. Harking back to an early ‘00s grime sound, Pritchard manipulates loops of flutes and pentatonic scales to find an energy which is exciting, addictive and perfect for the club.
MP Productions - EP 1 sees Pritchard dip into a slew of alias’ that have kept him busy over the years. This new club 12” nods to his mesmerising formulas for making dance music, carrying the listener through a collection of styles informed by grime, dancehall, electro and techno.
MP Productions - EP 1 is a consolidation of the eclectic style Pritchard has explored throughout his career; from his club music to albums like Under The Sun  (featuring artists like Thom Yorke and Linda Perhacs) and The Four Worlds  to the Global Communication project with Tom Middleton (which was recently re-released via their Evolution label). Pritchard is currently working on the follow up to his Under The Sun album.
Pritchard has long based himself from Sydney, and has been a crucial fixture in the local club and creative scenes. Playing with clubs and crews such as Good God and The Operatives, as well as playing festivals such as OutsideIn and Meredith/Golden Plains, Pritchard remains a key influence and presence among Australian ravers, DJs and artists alike.
Pritchard is also the go-to for electronic luminaries touring Australia, with the likes of Aphex Twin, Flying Lotus and James Blake calling him up for warm up sets melded in building energy and atmosphere. The Four Worlds, his audio-visual collaboration with renowned visual artist Jonathan Zawada, features prominently in these performances, and was dissected in-conversation by the pair at VIVID Live 2018.
