Following on from some of our favourite releases of the last year or two, London based singer & producer Mo Kolours released his self titled debut album over the weekend on One-Handed Music.
Somewhat void of genres or categorisation, its hard to try & sum up were the LP sits - in the best way possible, of course. There's a whole host of sounds & textures throughout that touch on hip hop, funk, jazz & dub amongst other things - if you're familiar with Mo Kolours' previous work you'll know exactly what we're on about.
The trilogy of EP's put out over the course of 3 years on the One-Handed Music imprint (Drum Talking, Banana Wine & Tusk Dance - all of which are highly recommended & available for free) act almost as maquetes in relation to the full album. There were little snippets into his music & style that have developed in the lead up to this much anticipated release - presenting themselves as a more expansive set of ideas & sounds brilliantly in the album. The fusion of sounds & influences alongside a fun, light-hearted approach to song writing presented in a hazy fashion, on the whole, make the album an absolute pleasure to experience.
