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!

Featuring DJ Lag, Spellling, Nozinja, Klein, LSDXOXO and more.

We know that Black queer DJs from the Midwest are behind the creation of house and dance music. Yet, a look at the current electronic scene will find it terribly whitewashed and gentrified, with the current prominent acts spinning tracks sung by unnamed soulful singers from time to time. Like many art forms created by Black people all over the world, the industry hasn't paid homage to its pioneers, despite the obvious influence they have. Thankfully, the independent music scene is thriving with many Black acts inspired by their forefathers and mothers who are here to revolutionize electronic music. Here are a list of the ones you should check out:
