Audio/Video: Auntie Flo 'Future Rhythm Machine' Trailer + Esa Fabric Mix

[embed width="600"][/embed]


Auntie Flo is a Goan/Glasgow producer whose stomper “Highlife” held us through last fall. Dude is now readying up the release of his Future Rhythm Machine LP on Huntleys & Palmers, a trailer of which you can watch above. In addition, Esa Williams — one-half of the live Auntie Flo setup and "Glasgow’s favourite South African" — made an afrofuturist mix for Fabric. As he told Fabric:

This mix represents my home town of Cape Town in South Africa... It's split into three parts, the first focuses on South African Kwaito and House from my homeland, the middle points to my Subculture/Sub Club influenced house background and I end with 20 mins of Shangaan Electro from South Africa popularised by the recent compilations on Honest Jon's Records by Nozinja Productions. Enjoy!

Burna Boy, Tinariwen, Michael Kiwanuka & More Nominated For 2021 Grammy Awards

The Nigerian star and Tuareg band are nominated in the newly named Best Global Music Album category.

The nominations for the 2021 Grammy Awards are in.

The awards show, which will be hosted by Trevor Noah, will see some of the world's biggest artists up for categories like Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best New Artist.

As we previously wrote about, the Grammys have renamed the international category of Best World Music Album to Best Global Music, in an effort to reportedly make it more modern and inclusive.

In that new Best Global Music Category, Nigerian afro-fusion star Burna Boy is nominated alongside Tuareg desert rock group Tinariwen, NYC afrobeat outfit Antibalas, Brazilian-American Bebel Gilberto and British-Indian sitar player Anoushka Shankar.
