The Warp Records duo will play gigs across the continent, starting in mid-November.
Steve Spacek and Mark Pritchard have each been involved in various projects for over a decade; Spacek is part of Space Invadas, while Pritchard produces solo as Harmonic 313 and has played in influential groups like Global Communication. The two artists formed Africa Hitech four years ago at Red Bull Music Academy, and have since been signed to Warp Records, which released their debut album 93 Million Miles earlier this year. The duo blends dancehall, dubstep and juke rhythms, with Spacek occasionally taking to the mic to contribute vocals.
Currently based in Australia, Africa Hitech's first tour of North America is an extensive one, and they'll be joined by Mux Mool, Dibiase and others for select stops along the way. Things kick off in New York on Thursday with Mux Mool and Sepalcure and wrap up in Vancouver on December 3rd, with dates across the US and Puerto Rico in between.
