"Africa Hitech is more than a name; it is an ideology - one that embodies its members' passions for an eclectic diaspora of electronic styles, from dub and acid to UK garage, grime, techno, house and Jamaican dancehall. Mark Pritchard and Steve Spacek stand at the intersection of all these styles (and more) and the result is a bass-fuelled manifesto: the opening salvo being 'Blen'. Africa Hitech forms part of Mark Pritchard's collective of projects, MPP Productions. MPP is a banner under which all the wide-ranging productions from this prolific producer exist. This includes Africa Hitech, Harmonic 313, new Reload material, and more. Essentially twisting the sonic palette of Detroit techno to fit their vision of post-apocalyptic riddims, Hitecherous is all oxygen-sucking bass kicks and razor snares until Spacek comes in over choruses of insect synths. This is not the smooth Steve Spacek you may know from his eponymous band, this is Steve Spacek as a rudeboy from the future. Decrying haters trying to 'take di piss', his unique patois creates its own intriguing atmosphere."
