DJ Playlist \\ Auntie Flo shares five must-play tunes for his festival sets

12th June 2019
Auntie Flo picks five essential festival selections ahead of his set at Love Supreme Jazz Festival.

Auntie Flo is a very busy man. Swiftly following his 2018 album ‘Radio Highlife‘ was his 2019 EP ‘Kabsa‘, which was inspired by his trips around the Levant, and features a remix from Nicola Cruz. Not long after his freshest Boiler Room appearance – where he added to the heat in Miami with his afro-futurist selections – it was announced that he’ll be DJing at Love Supreme Festival, hitting Supreme Standards’ takeover on the Blue In Green stage. 

As a digger and selector of high taste – not to mention the creator behind last year’s hit of the Summer ‘Havana Rhythm Dance (ft Andrew Ashong)’ – we were keen for Auntie Flo to select five tracks that are 2019 festival must haves in his highly acclaimed sets. Find out what he picked, below.

1 \\ Gaoulé Mizik – A Ka Titine (Detroit Swindle Edit)

The original is obviously amazing, but for festivals, Detroit Swindle do a great job of giving it an extra punch. The vocal also works as a nice DJ tool which I overlay on top of other stuff to give more energy – much needed during a festival set! 

 

2 \\ Sarathy Korwar – Mumbay (Auntie Flo Remix)

I just made this and had festivals in mind when I did. I was inspired by the Smith N Hack ‘Moving Like A Train’ remix from a few years ago – a stone cold festival banger. I’ve played this out a few times and the saxophone break kills it everytime.

 

3 \\ Fela Kuti – Opposite People (Bosq rework reference)

Festivals demand classics and this is one that every knows when they hear it, and even if you don’t it’s impossible not to feel it. Usually my festival sets are all about quick mixes but this one I play for the full ten minutes.

 

 

4 \\ Felipe Sa – Party Rock (Noema’s Magic Jam feat YeSolar)

I have no idea why this track isn’t much bigger or wider known, it’s an absolute belter from Brazil and released on my friend Noema’s Magic Movement label. The ‘we know how to party’ lyrics, build and the epic break rescues any dancefloor. It works so well on big stages. 

 

 

5 \\ Pablo Fierro – Tembo 

This is my secret weapon at festivals. Unreleased, Pablo sent it to me over a year ago and I’ve been playing it most sets ever since. It was my most ID’d track at iii points festival in Miami recently and I will definitely be playing it all summer. No idea when and if it’ll get released but it’ll be huge when it does.

Here’s our unmissable dates for the month of June
