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

Let Jojo Abot's New Afrofuturistic Video Hypnotize You

The Ghanaian artist releases the new video for "Nye VeVe SeSe," an entirely iPhone-recorded track.

Jojo Abot is rounding out a strong year which has seen her tour South Africa, release the NGIWUNKULUNKULU EP and work with institutions like the New Museum, Red Bull Sound Select and MoMA on her art and performances.

Jojo is now sharing her latest music video for "Nye VeVe SeSe," a song featured on her iPhone-only production project, Diary Of A Traveler.

"Nye Veve Sese is an invitation to let go of the burden of pain and suffering that keeps us from becoming our best and greatest selves," a statement from Jojo's team reads. "Asking the question of why pain is pleasurable to both the one in pain and the source of the pain. Often time the two being one and the same."

Watch her new "meditative piece," which was shot in Bedstuy, Brooklyn, below.
