Krunk presents Hotbox 01 ft. Auntie Flo Live in Bangalore
Brian D'Souza aka Auntie Flo is a central figure in the ‘new strand of club music fusing electronic and world influences alongside the likes of Daphni, Four Tet, Romare, Sinkane and John Wizards’ (Joe Muggs, The Wire, 2013), and with his Highlife party and label he is helping to ‘take World Music into the future’ (The Guardian, 2015). 2015 saw Auntie Flo release his debut full-length album following a ‘Momentum Artist’ award by the PRSF. ‘Theory of Flo’ was recorded in his hometown of Glasgow, current base in London and also during a tour to Havana, Cuba. It was released on Huntleys + Palmers and distributed by Kompakt. It features collaborations with production partner and Highlife co-resident DJ Esa Williams, alongside Shingai Shoniwa (Noisettes), Ghanaian singer Anbuley, Red Snapper drummer Rich Thair and Hidden Orchestra violinist Poppy Ackroyd. It was commended as one of the ‘Albums of the Year’ in various publications, including DJ Mag who awarded it ‘9/10’. Inverted Audio (2015) said it represents: ‘one of the most culturally exciting developments to happen to club culture in the UK. A prosperously based groundwork of music which will pave the way to come for artists in future years.’ Auntie Flo’s label Highlife launched the ‘Highlife World Series’ this year, featuring a series of collaborative releases made in different locations around the world with a new breed of local talent fusing traditional instrumentation with modern productions technique. Cuba, Kenya, and Uganda were the first stops with further releases planned for 2016. Auntie Flo is also 1/3 of Autonomous Africa alongside Optimo’s JD Twitch and Midland, a label releasing new music from the African diaspora.
At the bleeding edge of his own future, he represents the end of old things, the beginning of new ones, and a forged alliance with those making alternative electronic music in previously uncharted territories. Unafraid to crisscross between soundscapes you’ve never heard—think frantic, chopped-up African beats or moodier, experimental electronica—and soundscapes that are all too familiar, his sensibilities have a way of putting any audience at ease. Well known in cult progressive metal circles in India for his earlier work songwriting and playing guitar for Goddess Gagged before moving on to study music production in the UK, he’s already performed in places like Croatia, Netherlands, and Sri Lanka under his new moniker while cherry-picking his way through local gigs as well. He is Arman Menzies a.k.a Zokhuma.
