I've not mentioned Mark Pritchard or Global Communication or Link or Harmonic 313 or Africa Hitech for ages on this website.
Mark Pritchard is all of those people and I really should mention him more. His influence echoes throughout modern ambient and electronic music like a clanging gong that has been sampled, reversed, elongated, looped and drenched in reverb.
Listen above to the arresting title track from his new album Under The Sun, a mesmerising album which is bound to end up in plenty of end-of-year lists.
And come to know that, as ever with Pritchard, it's not the vocals you're following: it's that bassline lurking underneath, and the rhythms that sit at the edge of the melody. Beautiful.
