Our Staff Pick this week comes from Heather, wholesale manager and marketing assistant here at Mr Bongo. Heather's chosen the latest release from the Brownswood catalogue, Auntie Flo's 'Radio Highlife' available here.
"I've been a fan of Auntie Flo for a long time – he's a wicked producer tying together latin influences, afrobeat and dance rhythms in a really unique way. I got to listen to a selection of his when he came to DJ at a recent in-store at Mr Bongo, and his taste in music is spot on. The concept of releasing an album that corresponds with a radio show is something new to me, and he's hit the nail on the head with this release; using field recordings from his travels, as well as collaborations with musicians around the globe such as Laurie Pitt (Golden Teacher), Male Ndiack, Yissy Garcia and Andrew Ashong. Safe to say I'll be continuing to follow the Highlife radio show in the future to see what he does next."
