Anglo-Mauritian musician Mo Kolours dances through a series of multicolored drawings in the music video for “How I,” the title track off his new How I (Rhythm Love Affair) EP. Produced and directed by London animation studio Plastic Horse, the video shows the London-based producer bobbing to percussive shakes and electronic drips while singing along with the romantic vocal sample. With its simultaneously smooth and propulsive nature, “How I” conjures up the feeling of a humid summer night. The single’s music video, which features drawings by New York-based illustrator Hannah K. Lee, add an understated splendor to the producer’s exploration of hip-hop beats, dub bass lines, soul samples, and Mauritian sega music. Stream How I (Rhythm Love Affair) EP in its entirety, out now via One-Handed Music, and watch Mo Kolours’ “How I” music video below.
