The Questions: Untold

London UK’s Jack Dunning, better known as Untold, is a relentlessly brave producer, whose willingness to throw musical curveballs results in exciting and sometimes innovative music (for conclusive proof, check the 2009 scorcher Anaconda at the bottom of the page). In between music, running his own label Hemlock Recordings, and a brand new collaboration in the works, we got Untold to drop some wisdom on The Questions…

Mo Kolours - Drum Talking

Mo Kolours – Drum Talking

Reminiscent in ways, to my ear at least, of Madlib and ?uestlove’s more afrobeat focused production styles, Drum Talking is the debut EP from Mo Kolours. An involving soundscape, comprised largely of interesting percussion and voices as instruments, simple mantras, and a melting pot of production styles that hint at afrobeat, dub, funk, house, and flickers of more besides, there’s a an at once crisp and tender sound to the EP.

Mo Kolours’s vocals are both soothing and mysterious, and the limited vinyl run is is hopefully an idea that he will turn into an ongoing feature of his work.
