Amoeba Review

Kelly, San Francisco 03/31/2014

The signature Souleyman sound — that commanding, sweaty dance party-starting dabke sound — is all up on this record only this time it’s more visceral, more crystalline, and more brilliant than ever.


10/21/2013

The first time you hear Omar Souleyman, it might be tempting to say aloud, "what the f*ck am I hearing?" The Syrian artist doesn't quite sound like anyone on the planet, unleashing wild synthesizer solos and chanting in Kurdish and Arabic. His latest release ups the fidelity from some of his previous compilations (the man has released some 500 albums, so compilations are a godsend), allowing those gloriously distorted keyboard melodies to shine. The title track bounces on a dance beat with digital cheers that make it an awesome global party starter. "Ya Yumma" moves fast and funky on a simple beat and bassline, while Souleyman spouts like a wildman and the synthesizers go truly nuts, hitting stratospheric, impossible notes and sending your head spinning. Tired of only being exposed to BS fusiony world music that could put a coffee house to sleep? Let Omar Souleyman take your brain out for a joyride—you'll never be the same.
