Mo Kolours - 'Drum Talking' EP + FREE DL

Bandcamp strikes again!!!

Fresh in the inbox today, Mo Kolours debut EP 'Drum Talking'.
I posted a while back about his sneaky little Afro-tronic (did I just coin that phrase? ;) track 'Biddies'
From his Bandcamp blurb:

"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."

A while back I posted about this new-comer's single 'Biddies'...

I tell you now, this new EP is the real deal. Beautiful African rhythms with dubbed-out bass lines ('Bakiraq') and sweet electronically programmed click-clap drums ('Drum Talking' - FREE DL), and the Dilla-like wobble lope of '8 Hours'.

If you're fast enough you can cop a pre-order of the limited first-run copies of the vinyl HERE.
