Boomkat Product Review:
Living up to his unrivalled reputation as one of the most versatile and capable producers in electronic music, Mark Pritchard rolls off two of his most deadly riddims for Mala's Deep Medi stable. If you've not caught one of Mark's releases as Harmonic 313, Jedi Knights, Reload or Global Communications you need to go and do some revision mate, but if you've been keeping track of the last 20 years of dance music you'll know what we're talking about. The steamroller subs of 'Elephant Dub' are crushingly heavy, creating a dense pressure that causes the snares to ping off the surface with spring-loaded velocity and taking out weakheart dancers in the process. 'Heavy As Stone' on the flip alleviates the pressure with a dose of Sun-Ra styled Vitamin D, licking soul-stirring female vox, elegiac keys and even a glimmer of likembe over 4/4 steppers patterns, all anchored with that sublime bass-weight. This is heart-in-the-mouth material, tears on the dancefloor anthem business. It's a real no-brainer.
