Huntleys & Palmers and Highlife resident Auntie Flo has long been at the forefront of the Afro-electronic movement (alongside German specialists Africaine 808), delivering intoxicating blends of original African music and modern drum machine rhythms. Here, he makes his first appearance on Permanent Vacation with the feverish "Hey Don't Make Trouble" - a sweaty blend of wonky electronics, shimmering synths, African chanting and dense, floor-filling African percussion. The kuduro-influenced "Woman of Your Boss" takes a slightly different approach, mixing rave-era breakbeats and skittish bursts of percussion with wonkly synth horns and chopped-up African vocal samples. An essential EP is completed by the Esa Afro Acid Remix of the title track, a thrilling trip into ragged 303 territory in the company of some long-lost African tribe. Recommended.
