We are pretty sure more than a few people are thankful that Mark Pritchard didn’t pursue a culinary career in the end. The pioneering DJ, currently with cutting edge label Warp Records, has since moved on from his critically-acclaimed deep ambient music to the dark synthetic bass bleeps of Detroit-inspired instrumental hip hop.
Known for his multiple monikers, Pritchard’s current reincarnation is Harmonic 313, so named after the frequency produced by planets turning on their axes adapted to the Detroit telephone area code 313.
Catch the electronic groove guru in action this Saturday at The Shelter for the first time in Shanghai. In the meantime, it’s probably a good idea to go solve some color-coded speak-and-spell puzzles so as to lay your hands on a bonus unreleased track. Have fun.
