Everyone I've spoken who has attended any of the dates on this Africa Hitech tour has had the same remark: PHENOMENAL.
I had the chance of rawking w/ both Mark Pritchard and Steve Spacek at the Toronto show, along side Kevin McPhee of course, and witness a true soundsystem. Amazing.
There are a few dates left on the Africa Hitech tour - San Fran, Portland and Vancouver on Dec 3rd to close out the tour. Look for the San Fran date to be a nice one. But nonetheless, if you have never heard these guys play live, they have a handful of mixes out, and a new one has emerged curated for the good ppl at XLR8R. From hip hop, to the new 140 to some of his fave footwork, you get a sense of the love show. The one element that's an absolute must is Steve Spacek toasting the mic some wonderfully.
