Review: Messrs Pritchard and Spacek have only just dropped a killer new album on us in the shape of 93 Million Miles and now they add more fuel to the fire of critical acclaim with this EP. Not only do they serve up a VIP version of one of the album's strongest moments in "Out In The Streets" but two further new arrangements as well. We have to start with the VIP though which marries the bouncing digital dancehall meets juke of the original with an all encompassing assault of explosive jungle rhythms. We checked the small print and it comes with a guarantee to cause screw face at festivals and warehouses across the globe this summer. Check the flip for the righteous future boogie of "Caveman Style", which is nestled alongside the skittering rhythms and creeping Nintendo head nod vibes of "Seek Em Step". This release also comes with digital bonus track "Looking For The One".
Review: A heavenly collaboration between the legendary musical journeyman Mark Pritchard and Steve Spacek, Africa Hitech is a delicious fusion of grime, dancehall and techno that really glistens with energy and has had fans breathlessly waiting for this first release on Warp. Lead tune "Blen" won't disappoint at all, a heavy old-school grime beat with an uptempo but still laid back vocal, it's an absolute joy. As well as a remix of "Blen" and an instrumental, there's also the more plaintive but still riveting "The Sound of Tomorrow". Well worth the hype, check out why fans are getting in a lather for Africa Hitech.
