The Artworks Formerly Known As Prints

A 12 track leftfield/idm album (58m 21s) — released July 7th 2008 on Pollinate Records
The debut album by the Northeast's most exciting and malleable electronic pioneer, Prod - an album of astounding jazz-soaked, glitched out neo-soul beats, all tightly wound and interlinked within in his salad day influences of old school jungle, techno and electronica. Skilled in the ways of Jazz composition and structure, and a trained saxophonist, Prod decided to apply these rules, aesthetics and love for detail, and reproduce it on his laptop, adding more bite, snarl and a new world of sonic textures. His unique stamp on modern music has reached the ears and spinal cords of many, including Radio1 tastemaker Mary Anne Hobbs and DJ Food: - 'A work of genius, helps to blow the cobwebs off dull shit I get sent every week'. - DJ Food '…an outstanding piece of work'. – Mary Anne Hobbs Having had a couple of tracks released by UK based C Side Trax, Prod has gone on to develop his unique sound, influenced from his varied musical background, ready to unleash the fire burning within his swollen belly. As the worlds of high and popular art collide, Prod dares you to indulge, demonstrating everything you'd formerly known as music and reconstructing it into a new and tangible form. '...He's come at me quite out of leftfield, but I'm convinced that this young man is making some of the most interesting and exciting new music to come out of Leeds for quite some time' (Sandman Mag - June '08)

'...this is a really promising debut album and one that at the moment is the best kept secret in Leeds.' - Kevin Trotter The Beat Surrender

'deeply eccentric and wonderful producer' - Mary Anne Hobbs Radio 1

'His is a genuinely different sound in the sea of mediocrity that is the current dance scene. An album to look out for...' - Jay Sherman Don't Panic

It's wholly original, yet seems strangely familiar. Half new wave electronica, half lounge music. If ever there was easy listening IDM then this is it - Rich Silk Traffic Magazine

I'm convinced that this young man is making some of the most interesting and exciting new music to come out of Leeds for quite some time. - Greg Elliot Sandman Magazine

‘The Artwork Formerly Known As Prints’ is a unique document of cross breeding genres to birth a hybrid that healthily jams as much as it squelches. - Wordmaster 3 Bar Fire

Someday in the not-too-distant future, a google search on “prod” will yield uncountable references to this just-getting-started talent. - GirlSonic GirlSonic.com
