If there's one thing we'd change about this album, it's the release date. It's so blissed-out and hazy, it'd be much more suited to mid-summer than autumn.Short and sweet at just 30 minutes, the Anglo-Mauritian singer, producer and guitarist skips through dub reggae, sun-drenched soul and tribal African beats, even including a sleepy cover of The Stranglers' 'Golden Brown'.'A Soul's Journey' is the guitar-twanging highlight and the skits, which range from pirate radio rips to everyday questions such as "where is the salad?", inject it with a sense of reality. The release date really doesn't matter: this is an absolute stunner of an album from start to finish.Released: 30/10/2015 .
As Mo Kolours, Joseph Deenmamode has become the poster boy for a niche but fertile scene of South London beatmakers. Along with Jeen Bassa and Reginald Omas Mamode IV (not to mention Al Dobson Jr, Henry Wu and labels like 22a and Five Easy Pieces), this tight group of friends and collaborators has produced a wealth of interrelated records since 2012. Each artist has a slightly different focus, be it jazz, hip-hop or funk, but for Deenmamode nothing is out of bounds.
