Aussie by way of Brit forces have combined to form Africa HiTech, the techno supergroup made up of Mark Pritchard and Steve Spacek. The name of the group is meant to show its love for the progressive nature in today’s music (HiTech) while still acknowledging the place where all rhythm emerged (Africa). Following last summer’s EP HiTecherous, the group’s debut LP, 93 Million Miles, is set to be released May 10 via Warp.
The first single off the upcoming album features a haunting, hypnotic sample from Ini Kamoze’s ’80s dancehall banger “Out In The Streets.” You might recognize the sample from Damien Marley’s 2005 underground hit “Welcome To Jamrock.” But instead of being used to create a downbeat ghetto stoner anthem like Marley’s, this time around the sample sparks a hyper-active, substance-fueled dance party. The track has already been championed by some of today’s electronic music royalty, including Flying Lotus and Toddla T.
The upcoming album’s track is listed below along with the stream for “Out In The Streets.” And for those looking to get even better acquainted, a few of the tracks off of the HiTecherous EP can be heard here.
