Glasgow-raised musician Auntie Flo has released some stellar music over the years including last year’s Radio Highlife, a beautiful project that is diverse in sound and really captures the attention of the listener with its slick grooves, tribal rhythms and heavy percussion.
He is back with a new, shorter release titled Kabsa. The 4-track EP features some heavy percussion and bass-driven rhythms that provide such hectic energy to the music that it’s impossible not to dance or at least bob your head to the music. The synth and bass-heavy groove of “Ras” is an example of the sheer energy he is able to produce, with sounds that provide a whole lot of animosity with it’s pulsating energy and dark tone. “Baba” and “Kabsa” are more synth-heavy and meditative tracks that keep a hypnotic groove throughout, building with layers of synth and percussion. The drumming throughout is dominant and provide the perfect tempo for dancefloors all over the world. The Nicola Cruz remix of “Kabsa” is also brilliant, with more percussive and tribal grooves throughout.
Once again Auntie Flo exceeds expectations, and with Kabsa EP shows why he is one of the most exciting musicians to come out of the UK in recent years. Listen to the project below via Spotify and don’t forget to support! Released via Disco Halal.
