Africa Hi-Tech the powerhouse production combination of Mark Pritchard and Steve Spacek are set to release their debut album this May.
Released by Warp on May 9th, and following the 2 digi-dancehall releases ‘Blen’ and the ‘HiTecherous EP’, the 11 track album will see the 2 producers devlop their “love for all things progressive within music, whilst acknowledging that the roots of much of today’s popular music can be traced directly back to Africa.”
Having started working on the project when they found themselves, by coincidence, living in Australia, the album takes in the wealth of experience both artists have (Pritchard as part of Global Communications/Harmonic 313, Spacek as a notable contributor to Dilla’s work and the Spacek outfit), which sees them explore Detroit techno, classic soul and Jamaican dancehall as, expertly captured on lead single ‘Out In the Streets’.
