It almost came to the point that a new release on Ki didn't happen as Nick and Ben, the guys behind Colo, lost their laptop in the heyday of the album production. Backups? Unfortunately none! Their debut album was almost done: ten tracks with about 150 to 200 single audio tracks, many hours of fine detailed work just gone. But fortunately not the whole world is bad and the finder returned the laptop to the hands of their owners and Colo's debut album by the name of "UR" got pressed on vinyl. The name "UR" is a word play and not a reminiscence to the legendary Detroit label Underground Resistance. The bands name and the title of the album form the word "colo-ur". All ten tracks on "UR" were recorded live and arranged on the computer afterwards. Except of some drum sounds no samples were used. For the London based duo producing music is pure teamwork: both throw in ideas and play around with their hardware instruments. Besides vintage synthesizers they also use a lot of analog delay, or an 8-track recorder to give their tracks a certain layered and deep sound structure. The fragile vocals sung by Nick Smith underline this in a mystical way. Most tracks are created intuitively and directly recorded, to save the idea and not to lose its feel for the moment. One take, one track you could say. Although not every detail of the initial idea makes it to the final track. But if you listen closely, "Doorframe" for example has the room sound of their studio underneath the vocals that gives the song a rough and fading note. The vocals on "Holidays" were also made on the fly, recorded with a cheap Mic that came with a game console. Nick just felt he should record this melodic idea he had, not to forget it. What turned out was so good and unique sounding that it was kept for the final version. The single "Holidays" was released beforehand featuring a remix by Christian Löffler.
