Auntie Flo returns with his Theory of Flo masterpiece, his first release on Huntleys + Palmers since 2012. Following his critically acclaimed 2012 Future Rhythm Machine album, Theory of Flo is a bold step ahead, taking the listener on the trip of a lifetime spanning continents, genres, languages, and cultures to create a wholly unique listening experience and one that's only possible in 2015. Auntie Flo created the album with long-term collaborator Esa Williams; Theory of Flo also features collaborations with the incredible Ghanaian singer Anbuley (who appeared on Auntie Flo's 2014 Autonomous Africa hit "Daabi"), Shingai Shoniwa (Noisettes, The Matthew Herbert Big Band, Dennis Ferrer). It was recorded over a lengthy period between Havana, London, and Glasgow, with outstanding results. Scratch the surface and it becomes clear that by interweaving the rhythms and traditions of Africa and Latin America with more familiar western club sounds and four-to-the-floor electronic house music, Auntie Flo's interplanetary projects can break down barriers for fans on both sides of the electronic/world music divide. Fans of Daphni, Débruit, or Spoek Mathambo are all too aware of the tendency for media and critics to sub-categorize and pigeon-hole. Auntie Flo is building his own artistic response, one that re-energizes house music and looks outward but is very much indebted to the vibrancy of the Glasgow club scene. With regular appearances on the foremost underground dance music filter Boiler Room and a monthly show on Rinse FM, Auntie Flo has earned the respect to take the marimbas of West Africa and the palenque of Colombia to the unsuspecting. Two 180-gram LPs in double-gatefold sleeve with download code.
