Mo Kolours is an exciting new artist that just recently came to my attention. He has released a few EPs and is getting ready to release his debut album in March.
Kolours, who plays percussion, sings and produces, is half English and half Mauritian and his music is influenced by people like Nina Simone, Lee Perry and Jimi Hendrix. Interestingly, he also incorporates Sega music from Mauritania, all of which makes for an interesting musical cocktail indeed. So far, he has released a trilogy of EP’s on the British label One-Handed Music, which mixed dub, soul, hip hop, electronica and Sega music among other things.
Driven by Mo’s percussion and some nice atmospheric synths “Mike Black” is an original and soulful little gem and a great appetizer for what’s coming in March. Check out the song below and view the trailer for the coming album as well.
