AUNTIE FLO

One of the most truly original production talents of today, 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 & 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, which won him fans across the musical spectrum, as well as plays from Radio 1, high placings on the end of year charts, a Pearson Sound remix and full support from the DJ A-list. He followed it up with the more experimental mini-album Future Rhythm Machine 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 where he was 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 a 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.

Last 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. His Album Future Rhythm was also been nominated for Scottish Album of the year.

We’ve been wanting to get Auntie Flo for a long time, and so it gives us great pleasure to welcome him to The Sunday Joint on the Sunday 20th April 2014.
