Auntie Flo Hey Don’t Make Trouble (She’s the Woman of Your Boss)

“My boss’ wife is pregnant…and me, me, now Im gona have problems..So, I’m giving this advice to anyone that has a boss, in this life, you can make mistakes, but just don’t touch your boss’ wife, don’t look for trouble in this life, don’t touch your boss wife, because at the end of the month, it’s your boss who pays your wages”

The Glasgow/London based musician worked with vocalists from the Ivory Coast. The lyrics are a tongue and cheek rhyme that is commonly known in the Ivory Coast and represent a very sage piece of advice: ‘Don’t sleep with your bosses wife’!

The connection was made by German-based Ivory Coast DJ/Producer Raoul K. Upon hearing Auntie Flo’s instrumental version he immediately recognised the rhythm as similar to a traditional rhyme from his Ivory Coast homeland. He then helped facilitate the vocal recording and a few months later the track was finished.

We caught up with Brian d’Souza while he was in Berlin to perform at Renate’s Voyage Voyage. The interview took place in a hotel room at the Michelberger Hotel on Warschauer Straße before he caught his flight back to the UK.

When in Malawi we went on a mission to try to emulate Mr Awesome Tapes From Africa and find some unique undiscovered musical gems on tape cassette. We headed to the local market and eventually found the one guy who was selling tapes in the whole city. He was the grumpiest man we met all tour but with the help of a local translator we managed to buy around 25 tapes from him. He initially agreed to the price we offered but then seemed to go in this massive huff. We were like, OK - we can pay more, just to make him happy. But he still seemed annoyed so we started taking the tapes out our bag to give back to him. Our local translator thought he was gonna lose out on the deal so talked him around and we ended up paying a little more and got to keep the tapes. The only thing I can think is that we got ourselves a total bargain. Result. Tomorrow night at Highlife in London, i will be playing 2 sets, the first using just these Malawian market tapes. Hope you can join me!
