Audio: Mo Kolours' The Drum Walking Mixtape

Last month, we dropped an album teaser of "Biddies" from Mo Kolours, off his much anticipated Drum Talking EP, which has now arrived.  Along with it, MK offers up a mixtape to continue the celebration of his new release. Based on the drums, The Drum Walking Mixtape is full of songs that inspire the half-Mauritian percussionist and vocalist. Presented by our friends over at Wax Poetics. Stream the mixtape here.
