“14 tracks: Mark Pritchard Productions”

Under a plethora of guises Mark Pritchard has been at the forefront of UK dance music for nearly two decades. He's not short on respect around these parts so we've asked him to compile 14 of his favourite personal productions for this weeks selection. The scope and coherence of his oeuvre is practically unparalleled, setting unique coordinates between lucid electronic symphonies and Afro-futurist rhythm construction within a sphere of technofied dub sound design. His 14tracks take us from the seminal Artificial Intelligence era techno of 'Amenity' produced in '92, via his 8-Bit booty deconstruction 'Wind It Up' featuring Sa-Ra's Om'Mas Keith to the twitchin' syncopations of his Africa Hitech collab with Steve Spacek, also finding space for eternal beatless classics such as 'Ob-Selon Mi-Nos' from his Global Communication days, and the enigmatic '?' to leave you dazed and dazzled. He's currently working on a Africa Hitech album due for release in early 2011, as well as the long awaited return of Reload besides work on the new Trim album and a hugely anticipated collusion with Wiley, proving that regardless of age, era or style a boundless musical vision is simply an invaluable and rare quality.

“Track Length”

Any idea whether you will bring the full length tracks back? It is rubbish not getting to preview the whole thing and means I'm far less likely to purchase. Don't ignore comments you don't like... Just tell us the truth.

On 30 Jun 04:21 Anthony Williams said:

“I'm with Dan...”

I know this is perhaps not the right forum for such a posting, but I'd just like to wholeheartedly agree with Dan's comment. For a long time, Boomkat has been my go-to web destination for previewing new releases - and for making digital purchases of albums that have really impressed. The short preview "snippets" we're getting now are much less likely to get me to hand over my hard-earned... Please feel free to e-mail me privately if there's any particular reason for the change, otherwise, put the full tracks back and get my business again!

On 30 Jun 05:41 bs said:

“Track Length”

Yes - PLEASE work on getting full-length track previews back, or at least inform us about why you can't. These songs take time to build up, and they are often cut off before getting anywhere. It is frustrating and I'm sure you are losing business over it.

“Track Lengths”

Guys, the previews are 2 minutes long - that should be long enough for you to work out if you're into what you're listening to. Sure, not all tracks drop in 2 mins, but then other tracks aren't even 2 minutes long so on balance we think its a fair preview. Please remember that it is record labels and their suppliers who decide on how long they will allow previews to run for.

On 30 Jun 10:19 Marineblue said:

“Track Lengths”

Agree, this is a problem with most music stores. It's also annoying not being able to scrub through the previews. IMHO, the gold standard is: www.whatpeopleplay.com

If they can do it right (Soundcloud style full length waveform, listen wherever you like) why can't everybody else?! Once again, the Germans show the rest of us how it's done...

On 30 Jun 10:24 Robin Hargreaves said:

“Track length...”

You can always check Youtube or any other suitable websites (Discogs/ Vimeo etc etc) to see if the track is listed, I've been doing this for the last few weeks and find pretty much every track. Stop complaining and use your heads, obviously it is something to do with the record companies, every other site which sells tracks displays 1:30 to 2:00 samples. Why should Boomkat be different?
Quality tracks by the way.

On 30 Jun 10:29 rgrant said:

“pritch!”

good selection, but where is Reload!!!?
doesn't matter i didn't realise you guys had
the evolution vinyl as download... yipee!

On 30 Jun 10:36 David said:

I whollyheartedly agree about the track length thing. Yes, Robin, you can often find links on youtube or whatever, but that doesn't alter the fact that we had something that was taken away.. and that is annoying! Boomkat is still my go-to online shop, but truth is I'm buying less as navigating away to see if I like a track when it drops often sends me on a youtube mission.
With regard this 14 tracks though.. GREAT. Mark Pritchard is one of my favourite producers (I have most of these already) so it's good to see him getting a 14 Tracks to himself!

On 30 Jun 10:49 Gavin Reynolds said:

“It is what it is”

All this moaning about track previewing is getting silly. Yes Boomkat used to preview the full tracks, now they don't. They're not hiding the truth about why, like any other site it's down to the record labels. You're still getting 14 great tracks week in week out for a decent price, whats the problem? If you desperatley need to hear every second of every track before you buy it then use the wonder that is the interweb to find the damn thing and listen to it. I love 14 tracks as it introduces me to new genres and artists all the time, keep up the good work Boomkat

“great selection”

remember some tracks from back in the days, and learned some new ones. That's the purpose of this site I guess :)
On the whole track lenght thingy. I don't really mind if it's 'only' 2 minutes. All I want is a 'play all' button or something so I can do something else while deciding if I'm buying this weeks selection or not.

On 30 Jun 20:59 Marty said:

“1:30~2m is plenty long”

I disagree with you all - you don't need the whole track to decide if you like it or not. Before I started buying digital media, I would go into the record store, get a stack of vinyl and for each one I would know within 30 seconds or less if it suited my tastes or not. Same goes here - you should know if you love or hate a track pretty quickly!

“def. a pt 2”

No Troubleman? No Reload?

Btw, rgrant, you've been able to can get all the universal language/evolution stuff as download on BLEEP for the longest. Shop around mate

On 01 Jul 17:00 Eduardo said:

“Just start the sample at the point”

About the track length, at Amazon.com for exemple, normaly they do not start music samples at the very begining but near the key point of the track, so , just overpass the long introductions.

On 01 Jul 19:10 Gene Onegin said:

“Long Enough For Me”

2 minutes seems plenty of time to me. If I'm not into it by then, I probably won't be. But for the price here, I'm willing to gamble on a couple of tracks.
And speaking of the tracks - great selection!

On 03 Jul 08:56 Scott said:

“Track Previews?! - What About Pritchard?”

One of my favourite producers. Who even needs a preview for these? If they are Mark Pritchard named stamped they are gonna be great.

On 03 Jul 12:42 Cheap said:

“more backing for a part.2”

I want that track with Mcm! Keep up the good work, don't worry not all of us give a shit about track length,peace
