Auntie Flo

Auntie Flo is a central figure in the ‘new strand of club music fusing electronic and world influences alongside the likes of Four Tet, Daphni, Romare, Sinkane and John Wizards’ (Joe Muggs, The Wire, 2013). Originally from Glasgow but now residing in London, he has travelled the world extensively pushing his unique ‘Afro-futurist’ sound either with the Auntie Flo live band or solo as a DJ.

Radio Highlife

Auntie Flo’s new album is an expansive summation of his career thus far. His music has always drawn from a wide span of connections and more so than ever before, the album Radio Highlife presents a kaleidoscope of different encounters that sparked its patchwork of ideas. Seven years of wild travelling, serendipitous encounters, deeply personal moments are packed into the fourteen tracks with field recordings and studio sessions from everywhere from Cuba to Cape Town, Bali to Kampala and voices from Russia, Istanbul, Senegal and the UK expertly fused together in an ambitious and original global statement.
