Auntie Flo Flips An Ivorian Rhyme In 'Hey Don't Make Trouble'

London producer Auntie Flo flips an Ivorian rhyme in the 3-track "Hey Don't Make Trouble" EP


Glasgow/London producer Auntie Flo blends West African sounds with UK electronic music in his latest 3-track release Hey Don't Make Trouble (She's The Woman Of Your Boss). The lyrics are based on a well-known Ivorian rhyme and were suggested to the London-based DJ by Ivory Coast producer Raoul K., who "recognized the rhythm as similar to a traditional rhyme from Ivory Coast" and facilitated the recording sessions with vocalists from his home country. Stream the full release, which is available now from Permanent Vacation, and watch the video for "Hey Don't Make Trouble" below.
