The New Mo Kolours EP, How I (Rhythm Love Affair) is out now, and it’s free at the time of writing. More info below, but what are you waiting for?

How I (Rhythm Love Affair) showcases the Anglo-Mauritian producer’s addictive hooks, dub-influenced production style and skill as a percussionist. Mo Kolours focuses on developing his own strand of dance music over the first three tracks of this release, all naggingly catchy and slightly disorientating. Fans of Theo Parrish and Four Tet might find much to love here. ‘Sumerian Mother’ sees the oldest melody known to mankind recontextualised as a sparse and addictive head-nodder before ‘South LDN’ offers an ambiguous tribute to Mo Kolours’ current home and provides further evidence for Resident Advisor’s claim that “no one sounds quite like Mo Kolours”.

Raised on the traditional sega music of his father’s Indian Ocean homeland alongside the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Michael Jackson, Mo Kolours later added hip hop, dub, soul and various other electronic styles to his influences. His unique approach places him somewhere between Madlib, Gaslamp Killer and Caribou, and it has led to plaudits from the likes of the BBC’s Gilles Peterson, Joe Goddard (Hot Chip) and Resident Advisor, who asked him to contribute to their prestigious podcast series.

Art comes from New York-based illustrator Hannah K. Lee and How I… precedes an album later in the year for London label OHM.

The mighty Mo Kolours is back in March with a new EP: How I (Rhythm Love Affair). Here’s the first song, ‘How I’ to whet your appetite:

How I (Rhythm Love Affair) includes five tracks of Mo Kolours’ unique music: percussion-heavy, raw, loose and filled with joy, pain and a questing spirit. There are no answers here, but the questions are beautiful. The vinyl includes two exclusive bonus beats and you can preorder it here.

Mo made a short video below that teases another track, ‘Sega Chuckle’.

Keep’em peeled.
