Music is changing, the world is getting smaller… Teaming up with Auntie Flo & Esa, Highlife brings you fresh new music from corners of the world you’d least expect.
Over the past 4 years we have brought acts from across the world to play alongside residents Auntie Flo, Esa Williams and Andrew (Huntleys and Palmers). These include Rebolledo (Mexico), Charanjit Singh (India), Awesome Tapes from Africa (USA), Matias Aguayo (Chile), Raoul K (Ivory Coast), Hieroglyphic Being (US) and UK afrofuturists Romare, Actress, Cut Hands, Heatsick and DrumTalk. After running nights in Glasgow for 3 years, including a memorable 18 month residency on Sunday nights at the Sub Club, Highlife now operates in London, is a Radio show on Rinse FM and Radio Comeme.
Highlife has also since spawned a vinyl only label. Exploring various regions and sounds including South America, South Africa, the Middle East, Caribbean and India, Highlife has released music by artists such as Red Axes, Mehmet Aslan, Alma Negra, CAIN and of course, Auntie Flo and Esa.
