Auntie Flo – Theory of Flo
Immersive afro-futurism from Glasgow-based outfit
This article is from 2015.
An album resonantly designed for immersive listening and best experienced through a pair of headphones for optimum effect, Theory of Flo takes the loops and beats of Glasgow producer Brian ‘Auntie Flo’ d’Souza and his regular collaborator Esa Williams’ club set and lends them intimate warmth and texture. Billed as their debut album proper after 2012’s mini-LP Future Rhythm Machine, it welcomes Ghanaian singer Anbuley, the Noisettes’ singer Shingai Shoniwa and members of Red Snapper and Hidden Orchestra to a rich and addictive internationalist sound which draws influence from African and South American styles.
