DJ Hi-Tek ‘Hi-Teknology Volume 1’ 15th Anniversary

We’re a week or so late posting this one, but May 8th marked the 15th anniversary of the release of DJ Hi-Tek’s ‘Hi-Teknology Volume 1’ on Rawkus records. Following in the footsteps of Reflections Eternal’s ‘Train of Thought’ (2000) (produced entirely by Hi-Tek) and Mos Def & Talib Kweli’s Black Star LP (1998) (largely produced by Hi-Tek), ‘Hi-Teknology’ was the Ohio native’s debut album production album and featured vocals from the likes of Common, Vinia Mojica, Slum Village in addition to long term collaborators Kweli and Mos Def.

An extract from Hi-Tek’s ‘Scratch Rappin’ taken from the LP appears on both our 2001 Rap Megamix and our Edition #15 mixtape.

There is not currently an official / reliable stream of the album available on Youtube, but you can purchase physical copies / check release details on Discogs here.
