When two infamous figures of electronic music moved from London to Bondi several years ago, few could predict that the duo would end up as neighbors and go on to release a combined album and tour the country extensively. The Operatives are proud to call the Warp Records signed AFRICA HITECH as part of the family – and an unmissable live act who will be performing at Melbourne Music Week’s closing party and Subsonic Festival.
Consisting of longtime music fixtures MARK PRITCHARD (Harmonic 313, Global Communications, Jedi Knights) and STEVE SPACEK , AFRICA HITECH has enough combined music experience to explore almost every genre of pulsing bass-driven music to perfection.
Individually, they are known for their contributions to the vast borderlands of hip hop and ambitious electronic music. They met over a decade ago, and began collaborating sporadically, before finally starting AFICA HITECH. Since then, they’ve dipped their toes in everything from grime, UK funky and juke to field recordings and jazz.
