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

Bobi Wine's Release Detailed in Latest Episode of 'The Messenger'

Trauma is the topic on the podcast's latest episode: "The Ballot or The Bullet."

The latest episode of The Messenger is something to behold.

Created by Sudanese-American rapper Bas, The Messenger throws the spotlight on the thunderous circumstances many African countries face, with a close focus on Ugandan politician Bobi Wine.

In his most recent traumatic experience, Wine and his wife Barbara Itungo Kyagulanyi were released from a nearly two-week military house arrest following the ruling of a Ugandan court. Keeping up with current events and circumstances that Wine finds himself in, the latest episode of the podcast recounts the traumatic events that led to Wine's very public abuse and eventual house arrest.

Upon his release, Wine spoke with The Messenger and had this to say, "I want to remind the world that we went in this election knowing how corrupt the staff of the electoral commission is. We saw this through the campaign and the world saw how much was oppressed, how biased and one sided the electoral commission was, and how much it was in the full grip of General Museveni. And therefore we are going to test every legal test, we shall take every legal test. We shall take every legal step. And indeed we shall take every moral and morally proactive, nonviolent, but legal and peaceful step to see that we liberate ourselves. The struggle has not ended. It is just beginning."
