Africa Hitech blend grime, 2-step and bass music with a globetrotting sonic aestheticism unrivaled by the vast majority of current electronic producers. Mark Pritchard and Steve Spacek released their first music as Africa Hitech in 2010, the frenetic dancefloor killer ‘Blen’ (which you can download for free below!), but both have made considerable waves in the music world prior.
These two veterans followed up their single with the Hitecherous EP, a vigorous romp through future bass rhythms that proved ‘Blen’ wasn’t a fluke – Pritchard and Spacek found their niche in the ever-evolving electronic scene, and they sounded ready to exploit it.
Enter their debut LP, 93 Million Miles. A stunning collection of jungle riddim and rudeboy spit that trades off with serene melodies and slow R&B vocals. Stand-out track is ‘Out In The Streets,’ a footwork-inspired, 808 exercise that twists Ini Kamoze‘s infamous line, “Out in the streets, they call it Murder,” into a renewed hit for the modern club.
But it all started with ‘Blen,’ so peep the single below, pop it in your iPod along with the rest of our summer playlist and get dancing.
