Following a much-loved self-titled debut album in 2014, described by The Guardian as “the best album Curtis Mayfield never made with A Tribe Called Quest and Lee Perry”, Anglo-Mauritian, London based producer Mo Kolours is due to release his ‘How I (Rhythm Love Affair)’ EP in March via One-Handed Music. The lead single “How I” is available now for streaming and Mo has created a visual trailer for his upcoming EP. ‘How I (Rhythm Love Affair)’ is to be followed by a full length release later this year.

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.
