Mokolours -biddies

new from One-Handed Music. The half-Mauritian percussionist & singer Mo Kolours is about to release his debut EP later in May, which unites an array of more familiar influences with music of his island roots. We like the vocal display of Indian Ocean rhythms on “Biddies” and are curious to hear what his “EP1: Drum Talking” release is going to sound like. In the meanwhile this free download will hold you guys over untill the full release. Oh you can pre-order the vinyl at Rush Hour and via his Bandcamp page as well.-moovmnt

DELA X BLU: Looseys and Looseleafs

Oh look its one of my Fav Producers and one of my Fav MCs working together. another
dope single from the infamous DELA (Beatfanatic!) from the "Translation Lost" lp. lets see what D's gotta say about it:
"Made this one around Feb 09 too. I had actually sent another beat to Blu (that I later reworked & used for a "I Will" remix). He wrote to it but on second thought he was like naah I don't know about this one. So I sent another beat and he sent back the recorded joint a few hours later. Initially it was one long verse, but I HAD to add another hook right in the middle because I thought it sounded so dope. I couldn't find the right spot to cut the verse so ended up doing it cassettewalkmanwithnomorebatteries style."_Dela
