Mo Kolours’ new album, Texture Like Sun, is out today. We are offering it to you as a free download. It has everything you loved about his self-titled debut, and much more. Listen and download now. We are nearly sold out of the T-Shirt and LP bundle, so be quick if you want one. There is also a CD, vinyl on its own and a few tees available solo. More info below.

‘Texture Like Sun’ is the follow up to the much-loved self-titled debut by Anglo-Mauritian producer, singer and percussionist Joseph Deenmamode aka Mo Kolours. The Guardian described ‘Mo Kolours’ as “the best album Curtis Mayfield never made with A Tribe Called Quest and Lee Perry”.

“This record is about cycles. From the tiny cycles of loops within songs to the broader cycle of the whole album, which is designed to take you away and bring you home again at the end. Loops within loops. Loops overlapping in different ways and shifting as they go can take you very far away. You hear it in lots of African music, in jazz and hip hop”.

Bastien Keb is a supremely gifted artist and we are proud to release his debut album, Dinking in the Shadows of Zizou. There is more information about this multi-instrumentalist and his charming, odd, and very addictive album below. But you can make up your own mind. It’s a free download, so what have you got to lose?

Bastien Keb is a prodigiously talented multi-instrumentalist, who makes a living writing music for TV and film. A guitarist first and foremost, you’ll hear him play trumpet, bass, drums, flute and more on this debut record, as well as layering his voice to strangely moving effect. His music belies a love for Curtis Mayfield and Sun Ra, though his voice might suggest Bon Iver – a world away, but here it makes perfect sense. He channels 80s soul with his bass, the New Orleans of The Meters with his drums. He looks to Broadcast and Flying Lotus for direction: how do you assimilate such diverse influences, and come up with something wholly modern, and wholly your own?
