Bugalu Presents Auntie Flo LIVE!

After their awesome performance earlier this year at The HiFi Club’s Sunday Joint shindig, we just had to have these guys back and this time it’s gonna be a big Saturday night welcome to the Bugalu clubnight!

One of the most truly original production talents of recent times, Auntie Flo offers a gateway to lesser-known strands of music that need exploring.

Brian d’Souza aka Auntie Flo hails from Goa by way of Glasgow, but now resides in London where he is a resident for Huntleys and Palmers and Highlife.

Since bursting onto the scene back in 2011 with his debut ‘Goan Highlife EP’ and 2012 follow up ‘Oh My Days’ on Huntleys and Palmers winning him fans across the musical spectrum, plays from Radio 1, high placings on the end of year charts, a Pearson Sound remix and full support the DJ A-list. He followed it up with the more experimental mini-album Future Rhythm Machine album showcasing the full breadth of his unique afro-futurist sound, encompassing classic house, disco, techno, electronica influences alongside afrobeat, kwaito, cumbia, South American rhythms and outsider music from all around the world. Two Radio 1 live sessions at Maida Vale followed alongside two Boiler Room sets, one live and the other DJing.

The latter half of 2012 saw Auntie Flo launch the ‘Rituals series’ via Kompakt and Japan’s Mule Musiq. Backed with an acclaimed mix for Resident Advisor 341 and showcase at Berlin’s Panorama Bar sandwiched between Innervisions staples Henrik Schwarz and Ame – two key influences on the Rituals sound.

For Auntie Flo live, Brian teams up with South African Esa Williams (Sub Club / Burek) on an array of hardware and live percussion. Following summer of festival appearances at the likes of Rockness, T in The Park, Dimensions, SMS, Camp Bestival, Neopop and more, they ended 2012 with a headline live show at the sold out Optimo New Year’s Eve bash, which received a rare 5/5 review from Resident Advisor and praise from punters alike.

This year, Auntie Flo has been working on various remixes for the likes of Domino, Civil Music, Audio Doughnuts, One Eyed Jacks, Soundway and many more. New productions are on the way, with forthcoming releases for Philomena / Innervisions, Matias Aguayo’s Comeme and Huntleys and Palmers. A brand new live set will also debut this summer, primed for the festival circuit.
