Mo Kolours – Free “Biddies” MP3

Mo Kolours has released this free track “Biddies” as a sampling of his upcoming EP, Drum Talking. A recently featured producer on the famous Gilles Peterson World Wide radio show, Mo Kolours has a growing reputation in the UK. This beguiling, otherworldly record sees him drawing heavily on the ‘sega’ music of his ancestral island homeland and uniting it with dub, soul and various electronic styles to create intriguing new combinations.

Biddies is a house-not-house bumper, driven by Mo Kolours’ crafty vocal manipulations, percussion and chants. This is a unique record announcing a very unusual talent.

The new album from Ghostpoet, Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam, comes with the Gilles Peterson stamp of approval – it was released this month on the Brownswood record label, and singles like “Cash and Carry Me Home” and “Liiines” have been heavily played on the GPWW radio show for months now. Since the US release on February 4th, Ghostpoet has received praise from all kinds of press:

“In a way, Peanut Butter Blues sounds like what Slick Rick might have made if he drank a little bit more, slowed down his flow a touch, and loved messing with synthesizers, drum machines, and laptops.” - Prefix Mag
