DJ SEINFELD:
What’s in a name? DJ Seinfeld’s has been one of the most intriguing in electronic music in recent times. Yet, over just a few short years, the artist otherwise known as Armand Jakobsson has defied expectations, not only within the ‘lo-fi’ scene he briefly, inadvertently helped define, but across the wider spectrum of electronic music. As well as releasing one of 2017’s most-celebrated debut albums, ‘Time Spent Away From U’, he’s proactively flexed his creative impulses, utilising a number of not-so-secret aliases to explore the margins of jungle, techno and ambient. This all-encompassing approach resulted in Jakobsson becoming one of the youngest ever artists to be invited to curate an entry into !K7’s legendary mix series, DJKiCKS, which boasts past editions from Actress, Nina Kraviz and Moodymann.

After a successful string of underground releases, the sound of DJ Seinfeld was more definitively established on his debut album, ‘Time Spent Away From U’. Also released on Lobster Fury, the full-length skilfully mined melancholy dancefloor hooks from the dissolution of a long-term relationship experienced by Jakobsson, expanding his slow-burn, analogue sound into a journey that was more ambitious both musically and thematically. Among acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork and Resident Advisor, Crack Magazine concluded it contained “enough emotional potency… to transcend his ‘spoof house’ trappings once and for all”. The album was also selected by Rolling Stone as one of their 20 Best Electronic Albums of 2017, and saw support from peers like Bonobo, Flying Lotus and Four Tet.

Currently based in his home city of Malmo, Sweden, following extended stays in Barcelona and Edinburgh, the relatively slow pace of his surroundings has, amid international success and a beguiling touring schedule, allowed Jakobsson the space to return to the spirit of his music and indulge his restless creative attitude. Drifting in and out of the scene thanks to an extensive international touring schedule, DJ Seinfeld has recently played festivals including Field Day, Melt Festival and Primavera Sound, as well as embarking on extensive US and Australian tours in the summer of 2018.

AUNTIE FLO:
Brian d’Souza aka Auntie Flo is a central figure in the ‘new strand of club music fusing electronic and world influences alongside the likes of Daphni, Four Tet, Romare, Sinkane and John Wizards’ (Joe Muggs, The Wire, 2013), and with his Highlife party and label he is helping to ‘take World Music into the future’ (The Guardian, 2015).

Auntie Flo’s label Highlife launched the ‘Highlife World Series’ this year, featuring a series of collaborative releases made in different locations around the world with a new breed of local talent fusing traditional instrumentation with modern productions technique. Cuba, Kenya and Uganda were the first stops with further releases planned for 2016. Auntie Flo is also 1/3 of Autonomous Africa alongside Optimo’s JD Twitch and Midland, a label releasing new music from the African diaspora.

Other labels to release Auntie Flo’s music include Kompakt, Permanent Vacation, Innervisions/Philomena, Mule Musiq, Comeme, Multi Culti, Enchufada and more. Remixes include Chvrches, Crystal Fighters, Bosq, Red Snapper and more. Auntie Flo presents a monthly radio show on London’s Rinse FM. Guests have included Axel Boman, Gilb’r, Soul Clap and more.

Auntie Flo’s debut mini album ‘Future Rhythm Machine’ (H+P 2012) introduced him as one of the ‘most truly original production talents around’ (Crack Magazine, 2012), garnered a nomination for a SAY Award (Scottish Album of the Year) and was rated as one of the best albums of 2012 (Bleep.com).

Auntie Flo is founder and resident DJ at the Highlife parties that take place in Glasgow, London and Edinburgh. Highlife champions exciting artists from around the world including the likes of Rebolledo, Nicolas Jaar, Matias Aguayo, Shackleton, Actress, Awesome Tapes From Africa, Charanjit Singh, amongst many others.
