Highlife boss and one half of Huntleys & Palmers, Andrew Huntleys drops a handful of unreleased exclusives for VF Mix 27.
If it’s one thing Glasgow knows how to do it’s bring the party. Straight out of the city’s beating heart, Huntleys & Palmers have spent the last eight years building up a reputation for blooding some of the city’s most urgent music, from PC Music graduate SOPHIE to the afro-dance machinations of Auntie Flo.
At its centre is Andrew Huntleys, one third of the Highlife imprint, one half of Huntleys & Palmers, and one whole DJ in his own right. For our latest VF mix, Huntleys takes us on a high-octane, percussive techno trip, veering into cosmic territory and back again, tipping a hat to some of our favourite labels Dark Entries, Golf Channel and Finders Keepers along the way.
Before we begin – a note for the purists: Although it’s a good 90% vinyl, we’ve made a little exception this week to allow Huntleys a handful of unreleased goodies, and things we’d like to see pressed up sharpish.
