Time Out Of Mind
Far Out Recordings

forthcoming on

When Masters at Work's Kenny Dope hails your beats as "the phattest ever," it's a hearty endorsement indeed. Mark Pritchard, the recipient of said compliment, is widely seen as one of the UK's most talented, eclectic producers. In his Troubleman guise, he brings a handful of crispy breaks and delightfully percussive funk, soul, and bossa to the table, and authoritatively throws down aces. The subtleties and attention to detail that make this record truly special are best captured on tracks such as the Fela-esque breakdance epic "Strikehard" and the David Axelrod-inspired keys and wobbly bass groove of "The Righteous Path."
