‘Hitecherous’ is the fresh EP offering from Steve Spacek and Mark Pritchard’s new project Africa Hitech.
Keeping the pressure on after the digital dancehall minimalism of Blen – which drew frenzied comparisons to everyone from Wiley to Basic Channel and Vybz Kartel – this new 6-track bomb will rattle more than a few rooftop aerials.
Preorder Africa Hitech – Hitecherous at Bleep Vodpod videos no longer available.
‘How Does It Make U Feel’ pushes the sonic vapors of ‘Blen’ into a futuristic bass anthem, replete with bubbling 303 bass, sonar synths and Spacek’s commanding falsetto. Taking on the icy blueprint of Grime’s early, street-stalking strains and updating them with far more warmth and depth, ‘Said Speed’, ‘Lash Out’ and ‘Boingy’ are some of the most speaker-shredding tracks in recent memory.
Vodpod videos no longer available.Spacek returns to the mic on ‘One Two’, but don’t expect more futuristic R&B, that was three tracks ago. Back is the microphone-biting rudeboy of ‘Blen’, boasting and chatting over the sharpest riddim about some of the tougher aspects of London street life: “Nuff man ah carry bout knife / Dem ting ah end a man life”.Vodpod videos no longer available.
With the history of bass music at their fingertips and their minds fixed fully on the future, it sounds like Africa Hitech are only warming up!!
Jamie Lidell has one of those voices that is completely irresistible, and his live shows are no different as he is known for layering tracks made with his voice into a microphone and performing the percussion and melody as a sequenced one man band. His upcoming album “Compass” is set for release on May 18th, and its title track has already become a favorite of us.
