The duo of electronic heavyweights Mark Pritchard and Steve Spacek just released their full-length debut as Africa Hitech last month. So far, the record, 93 Million Miles, has received nothing but praise for its frenzied blending of dub, grime, and garage music. With good reason as its tracks, no matter how repetitive, burrow into your brain and stay there.
Providing that point is “Out In The Streets,” a tune built on a sample of Ini Kamoze’s “World-A-Music.” It’s erratic nature is brought to the visual by director Mark Simpson, of Sixty40. He uses the futuristic bounce of “Out In The Streets” as the basis for his vision of a world run rampant with helpful robots who are seen as outcasts. And in case you’re wondering, no, this isn’t Simpson’s own version of I, Robot.
93 Million Miles is out now.
