Amoeba Review

07/19/2017

Fifty-year-old Syrian singer brings his long-running dabke dance party to Diplo’s Mad Decent label with To Syria With Love, a collection of seven stomping Arabian techno numbers that move along at breakneck speed. It is absolutely imperative to start by mentioning how much keyboardist Hasan Alo kills it on this album, bridging laser light show prog-rock heroics with impeccable funkiness and a Herculean sense of endurance, as nearly all these songs stretch out past the six minute mark. Together with Souleyman’s gruff vocals, the pair serves as the sole embellishment over these hypnotically stark, mechanical grooves. The perfect album to soundtrack a Beirut night club in the 23rd century.
