Auntie Flozza

Posted on the 28 June 2011 by Pelski
Auntie FlozzaInitially a Glasgow based club night, Hunters & Palmers has since taken their party-starting antics to London and, more recently, branched out into a label. Their first release dropped in April from newcomer Auntie Flo (what I thought was a really cute and cuddly artist name… until I realised what it meant). His debut EP ‘Goan Highlife’ was of the raw and earthy tribalist ilk, but imbued with real melody and groove. The flip was a refreshing slice of heavily looped hollow percussion sitting behind a big kick drums and some ethnic chanting. The EP was just as likely to be heard spun by Ricardo Villabos or Andrew Weatherall as by Ramadanman or Caribou.
H&P's second release caught my attention nestled away at the backend of Midland’s latest mix. And it’s more of the good stuff – afro-inspired, blistering beats – but with a keener focus on dancefloor house floors, with an insatiably upbeat vocal chant, rattling beats and booming bass drum. This one’ll be doing the rounds this summer:
