Reload were Mark Pritchard and Tom Middleton, aka the incredible Global Communication. This is top notch UK electronica or IDM from the early 90s.

As discogs says: “Reload was originally a Mark Pritchard solo project. Later Tom Middleton joined Mark on some of his Reload releases, and “& E621” (the name of a chemical flavour enhancer) was added to specify Middleton’s involvement/flavour enhancement on a track (similar to the set-up with “Link & E621”). As Tom became more heavily involved on the Reload “A Collection of Short Stories” album, the “& E621” was scrapped, and Reload came to mean both Mark Pritchard and Tom Middleton. All Reload Remixes (except for the two on the Mystic Institute “Cyberdon EP”) were done by both Mark and Tom together. Reload, in its current incarnation is once more a Mark Pritchard solo project.”

Their stuff was never easy to find, which I guess is reflected in the price of their stuff today. They never had the profile of those on Warp Records at that time. One track from the album “A Collection of Short Stories” and the rest from the “Auto Reload EP Vol 2”, both from 1993, both on Creation Records offshoot Infonet:

Reload – Peschi  

Reload – The Biosphere  

Reload – Phase 4  

Reload – Le Soleil Et La Mer
