Mike Black (John Wizards Remix)

One-Handed Music

Released: 26th May 2014 | 2 track leftfield/idm single

'Mike Black' was the lead track from Mo Kolours' recent debut album, which has been dubbedOne of the albums of the year so far by TheGuardian and found fans in Gilles Peterson, Benji B, Mary Anne Hobbs and many more.

Now South African band John Wizards, one of the revelations of 2013, have turned Mo Kolours' low-slung sufferers' song into a sparkling balearic gem.

Mo Kolours is a half-Mauritian, half-English producer, singer and percussionist. On his self-titled debut album he displays dazzling inventiveness and joyous spirit – unsurprising for someone raised on the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Lee Perry and A Tribe Called Quest while remaining ever curious about his Indian Ocean roots.
