Multi-instrumentalist Bastien Keb creates dusty, soulful sounds that pay homage to past masters of US funk and jazz including The Meters and Sun Ra. His debut LP, out now, is a wholesome, meaty listen that's not to be missed...
Our M50 magazine party at London’s Social saw some great performances from some of our favourite new acts. Alongside Anna Meredith and Mo Kolours, steel pan maestro Fimber Bravo gave one of the sets of the night with his percussion heavy skills coming to the fore. Fimber has enjoyed a great year after collaborating with the likes of Hot Chip and Zongamin on his recent LP Con-Fusion. Check out his performance of live favourite Grey Clouds from the night…
Anna Meredith, Fimber Bravo and Mo Kolours will all be performing at our M Magazine 50th issue event party at the Social in London tonight (25 November).
Anglo-Mauritian pop-experimentalist Mo Kolours is famed for his otherworldly productions and dubbed-out vocal hallucinations. Through a painstaking commitment to beat-making, he builds spacious structures on which to peg airy melodies and reverb-heavy percussion. Like US dub revivalist Sun Araw, he's big on collaborations and is devoted to enhancing the live element of his sound. We caught up with him at Liverpool Psych Fest to record his performance.
Across a triology of EPs, Peckham’s Mo Kolours has stitched together a melee of sounds to create a psychedelic tapestry that’s tantalisingly tricky to pigeonhole. His lush palette puts flipped-out dub at its heart, with the roominess of Studio One’s former glories appearing to blink back to life.
We travelled north to sample the delights of the Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia
