Africa Hitech (Brits Mark Pritchard and Steve Spacek) embark on their first American tour, and expectations for them run high. In the mid '00s, Spacek put a dazzling, Jamie Lidell-like spin on future soul music over several records. Pritchard has a mile-long résumé that includes releases with Global Communication, Reload, Link, Harmonic 313, Jedi Knights, and others. He's known for his chameleonic ability to excel at myriad styles—ambient, IDM, electro, library music—with keen funkiness and enigmatic melodiousness usually to the fore. With Africa Hitech, the duo appears in more aggressive form than previous work hinted at. Their debut album, 93 Million Miles, conjures future-bass melees that encompass everything from Chicago juke to Shangaan electro, with a few refreshing excursions into 21st-century astral jazz. Africa Hitech should have no trouble keeping the dance floor molten. DAVE SEGAL
