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?

Mo Kolours’ new album Texture Like Sun is due on October 30th. Check the first song from it, ‘Orphan’s Lament’, inspired by a Mongolian folk song (but sounding as neck-snapping as ever). See below to pre-order the album on Bandcamp: there’s an LP and t-shirt bundle, LP, CD,  and a digital pre-order for just £1. Get involved.

Mo Kolours will also be launching the album live a The Pickle Factory in London on November 12. Tickets are just £8 and they are here.

Bastien Keb is here with ‘Love Just Died Tonight’, an incredible new song with a special video to boot. Those strange, layered vocals have a mesmerising effect over the drum machine and synths – and that’s just the start. Enjoy, and keep reading for info on his debut album for OHM.

Bastien Keb’s solo album Dinking in the Shadows of Zizou is coming on OHM on 25 September. You can pre-order the vinyl LP now, just click the link on the Bandcamp player below.

Zinedine Zidane has never been to Leamington Spa.

Perhaps the most complete footballer of the modern era, the man nicknamed ‘Zizou’ won everything there was to win with France and Real Madrid. “Football was the easy part”, he stated, when asked about his childhood in the ghettos of Marseille. “Music was important”.
