Boomkat Product Review:
Blazing wooze from Mark Pritchard's Harmonic 313 project for Warp with four more prime examples of his take on Detroit style hiphop. 'Dirtbox' initiates proceedings with a darkside Detroit production, working something like a soundtrack for Robocop getting ready to go out with his homeboys. 'Arc Light' is pure Sa-Ra astral synthology styles mixed with a Teutonic melancholy that has always been shot through the finest Detroit indebted productions, but things take a turn for the dancefloor on the flipside. 'The Returners' sounds something like Dilla smoking with Kraftwerk to get you started with bumpbass and distant gazing synthlines, but it's the last cut 'Wobbz' that's prepared for the floor, which is where his finest productions work so well. It's the wildest fusion of bogling digi dub, Rustie style synthline ephemera and junglist snare hits we've heard this year, just rough and rugged future dancefloor dirt. If you're following the likes of Ras G, Rustie, Samiyam, Flylo or Mike Slott into their slow zooming synthline world you'd do well picking this up for the journey. Aces.
