Big fan of the sound Mo Kolours has pushed out over the past few years, and now he returns with news of a new album.
On his new album Texture Like Sun, the Anglo-Mauritian producer, singer and percussionist continues pushing his experimentalism with more forward thinking music.
The first taste “Orphan’s Lament” provides us with a glimpse of things to come in terms of new styles and sounds, while maintaining the same thrilling approach we heard and fell in love with on his self-titled album.
“Orphan’s Lament” is named after a Mongolian folk song, and Mo Kolours’ words urge the listener to “fall to get up again” among a set of inescapably linked opposites.
“This record is about cycles,” explained Mo. “From the tiny cycles of loops within songs to the broader cycle of the whole album, which is designed to take you away and bring you home again at the end. Loops within loops. Loops overlapping in different ways and shifting as they go can take you very far away. You hear it in lots of African music, in jazz and hip hop”.
Snap your neck to the vibes and let the Mo take you on a musical journey.
