Collective Resonance A great EP with an eclectic mixture of influences from the half-British, half-Mauritian percussionist/musician Mo Kolours. Had to grab the cassette . Favorite track: Bakiraq.

Raouf Thick, steamy beats mixed with hypnotic samples and vocals; what's not to like? Favorite track: Bakiraq.

Derek Lipkin Mo Kolours' sample use on this EP is fantastic. I love the way we weaves the different sounds, and gives the music a very tribal quality. Favorite track: Biddies.

Some records seem to come out of nowhere. Witness this debut EP by the half-Mauritian percussionist & singer Mo Kolours, which unites an array of more familiar influences with the Sega music of his island roots.
The rhythms lead the way here, whether the straight percussive workout of Drum Talking or the crafty vocal manipulation that drives the low-slung bump of Biddies, a song that traces an imaginary line between Theo Parrish and Gonjasufi. Dead of Night mines the symbolism of The Beatles’ outwardly chirpy Blackbird while his own Bakiraq (like Burt, the songwriter) resembles a soul classic pieced together from fragments around the flickering light of a fire.

Features the first ever remix behind the connoisseur's edit label of choice: Truth Is Light.
