Tracka De Day: Auntie Flo "Highlife"

[embed width="560"][/embed]


Auntie Flo's "Highlife" is a straight-up banger — a heaven sent interspersion of chant samples, incessant drums and synth outbursts aptly "dedicated to the feeling of joy" (as a voice in the beginning states). Though named after the guitar-toting West African genre, "Highlife" is far more influenced by Pretorian kwaito jams from the likes of DJ Mujava and Spoko. Check out the tune's equally celebratory clip above, in which the Indian-born Glasgow-based producer got friends and strangers to get down in the Scottish streets. You can find "Highlife" on Auntie Flo's Goan Highlife EP, out now on Huntleys & Palmers.
