Biography

Africa Hitech is an electronic music project consisting of Mark Pritchard and Steve Spacek. They released their first EP Blen on 19th April 2010 and a second, Hitecherous, on 28 June 2010. Their debut album 93 Million Miles was released on May 16, 2011.

Pritchard is probably best known as half of the ’90s ambient duo Global Communication (he also produces as Harmonic 313). Spacek first made a splash 10 years ago with his own rnb group, simply called Spacek, and since then has worked solo and in projects like Space Invadas (he also happens to be the brother of drum & bass artist D-Bridge). The two producers first teamed up as Africa Hitech at the Red Bull Music Academy in 2007 and have put out two EPs for Warp since then, both of which flirt with elements of dubstep, grime and funky. All of the tracks on 93 Million Miles are previously unreleased, except for Out in the Streets, which is available as of today through Bleep.

Pitchfork gave the album a review of 8.2, writing “It’s no small feat to craft something this adventurous and eclectic and still have it turn out to share the cohesion of a DJ mix, but Africa Hitech manage just that— and despite all the left turns, you want to stick by their side every step of the way”.

    @Bastafa: so you basically say electronic music is plain? :) and you know every member can edit a bio. but its a bit more text now for your contentment. but I'm always a supporter for saying: the music should talk for itself. and their music does this brilliantly

    the_vein basically exchanged their creative bio with a plain standard bio and wants to tag this with electronic, the most general tag after "music" in existance
