Preamble | Mark Pritchard

I've been recording in loads of Jungle from 91-97 the last few years, thats been finding its way into my sets especially after a few beers.
Type:

1. So, you're spinning a discography selection at CDR. What can we expect to hear? a litttle insight please!
A very uncomfortable hour and a half of playing my own music hahah. I think i'll play half and half new/old stuff.

2. How has attending CDR sessions shaped your journey as a producer?
It's a great place to hear my mix down mistakes, I'll be listening out for bass line errors for sure. I've been in a new space this year so im just starting to get used to the room.

3. Who has been on heavy rotation on your audio player of late?
Mainly Footwork stuff like, Dj Roc, Dj Rashad, Dj Nate, Dj Spin, Dj Trouble, Dj Lil Rome, Dj Elmoe. Bok Bok, Shortstuff, Untold, Ikonika, Mala, Coki, Pinch, Dorian Concept, New Rustie, Lone, Instra:mental, Ramadanman, few grime things, loads of good music at the moment, I love that Shangan electro thing on Honest Jon's. I've been recording in loads of Jungle from 91-97 the last few years, thats been finding its way into my sets especially after a few beers.

4. Talk us through the track you mastered.
The last thing I had mastered was the Hitecherous EP by Africa Hitech. It was mad as I would finish a mixdown, upload it to John Dent (Loud Mastering) with a few notes and then later that night he would do his thing and sent it back. I basically send him a mixmaster which is a 24bit 96khz file and then usually if no vocal, track without bass stem and bass only stem, if it has vocals I would do a vocal stem as well. Then it gives John more options if i have misjudged something. Saves having to load it up and put it down again or do multiple passes as 2 tracks. i.e Bass up ,bass down, vocal up etc.

5. Any where else that people can hear you spin tunes other than your own?
All my dates are up on here - myspace.com/officialmarkpritchard

6. Any thing else you care to add?
Where is the new Tony Nwachukwu album? And I can't wait to be in Plastic people again, I miss it in Oz.
[Tony] ooooOOp! Thanks for the reminder Mark! Yep some new Nwachukwu productions on the way. A peek on Sunday perhaps...

Postscript: Check Mark's set in the October 2010 session podcast. Two parts!
