Amoeba Review

07/17/2015

One of the most unexpected treats of the festival circuit, Omar Souleyman is back with another producer rich collaboration. With help from the likes of Four Tet, Black Lips, and Modeselektor, Souleyman’s traditional Syrian folk style lends itself to the allure of the 4/4 driven club banger. Traditionally meant for the Dabke (a line dance popular at weddings), Souleyman’s music is strictly danceable while maintaining a hypnotic undertow of synthesizer that after a time becomes otherworldly. One gets the feeling all would be lost if the Master of Ceremonies (Souleyman himself) weren’t there to bark the orders. For example at around the nine minute mark of Modeselektor’s “Leil El Bareh” gives over to the reedy synthesizer (traditionally the Mijwiz) allowing its presence to penetrate every inch of the subconscious. That is until Souleyman’s native tongue brings you back to reality. "Darb El Hawa," on the other hand, takes on a much more realist quality in which the heaviness of the musical style shines a bit of light on where politically and culturally this sound has come from. Each of the tracks, apart from the delightfully spacey Legowelt remix of "Bahdeni Nami," brings just the right amount of flavor to accentuate this truly (if only to the west) unique artist.
