The first single from Mo Kolours’ new album Texture Like Sun has got the video treatment from the geniuses at Business Company and it is a thing of wonder. More bizarre and intriguing than anything we have ever made before, and a perfect compliment to the song. Enjoy!
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”.
