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.
Known for deconstructing rock, punk, and electronic, taking it to the garage and stripping its fancy parts, the math-rock supergroup Battles experiment with new blood–one with Chilean sweet vocals. His name is Matias Aguayo and on the first song from the forthcoming album Gloss Drop called “Ice Cream” we get sticky prog-rock gone haywire, a bonanza of vicious riffs and made-up words.
