EP REVIEW: Mo Kolours “How I (Rhythm Love Affair)”

Mo_Kolours_by_Owen_Richards

How I (Rhythm Love Affair) is the upcoming effort of Anglo-Mauritian producer Mo Kolours. The five-track EP is the follow-up to his self-titled 2014 debut. Repetitive tribal percussion are accented with low-fi vocals and dashed with shakes from a rain stick. Drum-circle advocates will certainly enjoy it, but dreadlocks are not needed to enjoy the strong dub influences of the EP. To those unfamiliar world music, the EP offers a Tribe Called Quest-influenced introduction to sega, the traditional music of Mo Kolour’s homeland.

How I (Rhythm Love Affair) comes out March 9th. Listen to the single “How I” below.
