Mark Pritchard's first full-length release under the Harmonic 313 moniker, "When Machines Exceed Human Intelligence", is a real doozy. Grumbling bassweight, glitchy traces of minimal tech, acid, dancehall and dubstep all combine to form a sound both cerebral and danceable. The elegant juxtaposition of these elements substantiate Pritchard's breadth in both influence and execution; after all, this is the man behind Link, Troubleman, NY Connection, Global Communication, Series 7 (with Stephen Horne), Vertigo (with Danny Breaks)and a dizzying array of other projects. Transmitting his equal love for Detroit techno, Jamrock dancehall and space-age hip-hop, this album should prove to be one of the standout electronic releases of 2009. The sheer bass pressure contained herein is sure to leave an indelible mark.
