Audio: African Hitech "Blen"

With static bass kicks sprinkled, C-3PO-sounding tones and rude boy toasts, "Blen" makes for another true afro-futurist track from Mark Pritchard and Steve Spacek's project, African Hitech. The latest album, 93 Million Miles, represents, as some have said, an "eclectic diaspora of electronic styles" that is largely backed by broken-beat, African-inspired sensibilities. With a nice mix of bass heavy space beats, and atmospheric chill out tracks, this release is ahead of its time. Other noteworthy tracks include 'light the way", "Out in the Streets", and "Dont Fight it."  Listen to "Blen" below.
