Described by others as ''The thinking man's 3 deck wizard'' we are pleased to welcome Afrofuturist and upcoming star Brian d’Souza (Auntie Flo) to Hung Up!
Under his 'Auntie Flo' guise he has recently put out his first proper release - on the brand new Huntleys & Palmers label. The tracks are full of rich sounds from across the globe that have been entering the rotation of DJ's such as JD Twitch, Ricardo Villalobos, Jackmaster, Caribou and Erol Alkan. Not bad eh. 'Highlife' has an old school house feel with infectious tribal chanting whilst the B side 'Goa' has a more subtle charm as zither melodies vie for attention with double handclaps over a kwaito / funky-led rhythm. Watch out for a forthcoming remix package with mixes from the T. Williams, DJ Sdunkero and more.
In addition Brian continues to promote Slabs of the Tabernacle parties, he’s also been co-running a new club night named Highlife, with previous guests such as T-Williams and Mim Suleiman.
