Nearly a year after releasing his self-titled debut LP, Mauritius-rooted, London-based beatmaker Mo Kolours shares the first single off his forthcoming How I (Rhythm Love Affair) EP. The simultaneously sinewy and warm “How I” mixes drum hits and electronic curls with a female vocalist’s refrain of “How I want you” for a nocturnal dance ripe with longing. Like Thievery Corporation‘s “Lebanese Blonde” or Shabazz Palaces‘ “Are You… Can You… Were You? (Felt),” the track has an involving mellowness to it. Mo Kolours has also shared a video teaser ahead of his EP’s release. Shot and edited by the producer himself, the clip flashes through photographs of smiling men and women as a snippet of “Sega Chuckle,” the EP’s second song, plays in the background. Listen to “How I,” and check out the teaser below. Mo Kolours’ How I (Rhythm Love Affair) EP will drop March 9 via One-Handed Music.
