Mark Pritchard @ www.Deconstructed.co.uk/wordpress Live (1 of 2), Recorded 26 April 2002
A shared love of Detroit techno and Chicago house saw Mark Pritchard and Tom Middleton form the Evolution and Universal Language labels in the early nineties. Material as Reload, Global Communication and the Jedi Knights followed, with the use of the latter prompting a rumoured phone call from an unhappy George Lucas. As Tom leaned more towards chill out and deep house, so Mark’s recordings as Use Of Weapons and Troubleman pushed the envelope of breakbeat music.
Mark features a lot in my record collection with Troubleman, NY Connection, Harmonic 313, Link and a slew of other names. When working with Droppin’ Science’s Danny Breaks (as Use of Weapons, seek out the records, they remain superb) he tagged along to play a club I was involved with, and a few years later I managed to invite him down to play some records of his own volition. Early millenial hip hop and plenty of exclusives.
