Auntie Flo's Highlife imprint gathers more groove momentum as South African producer Esa Williams joins the party with two acid-tickled jams. "Shaka Zulu" is deep, tribal affair as an acid bassline undulates beneath bold drums and far-away cries. Building with snares and added synth magic, it's a sure-fire way to send your floor into a near-shamanic state. "Sipho Gongonzo Hulle", meanwhile, is an uplifiting slice of analogue euphoria with soft African chants and tightly woven synths that sparkle over the bubbling bassline. Both are absolutely stunning.
