Mo Kolours is a half-Mauritian, half-English producer, singer and percussionist. On his self-titled debut album he displays dazzling inventiveness and joyous spirit – unsurprising for someone raised on the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Lee Perry and A Tribe Called Quest while remaining ever curious about his Indian Ocean roots.

“A true rhythm merchant – crafting percussion which swings, which moves and writhes with a life of its own” : Clash
“No one sounds quite like Mo Kolours” : Resident Advisor
“It’s rawness and vitality that the London-based Mo Kolours specialises in. It’s part hip-hop, part funk, part dub, part electronic, but mostly in a world of its own” : DJ Mag
“Anyone who hears this producer’s beats is instantly mesmerised” : Mixmag
“A brand new mosaic has been introduced to the world” : MTV
“A warm, sensual and overwhelmingly diverse record” : Trap
“It doesn’t show much commitment to structure, nor much interest in capitalising on its own ideas – but there’s a different kind of satisfaction to be had from grazing on its woozy invention, lo-fi humour and raw yet intricate grooves” : Time Out
“A dusty treasure trove brimming with the simplest and most blunted of melodies gloopily combined with a soulful pulse and a prickly sense of humour” : The 405
“Bright, smooth, and as breezy as a tropical beach” : The Line Of Best Fit
