Start Your Weekend Right by Spinning the New LP Shlon from Syrian Legand Omar Souleyman
We here at Reviler are longtime fans of the Syrian Dabke legend Omar Souleyman, dating back to our first exposure from his amazing mid-2000s compilations on Sublime Frequencies. His stature has grown in the subsequent decade, but he still is a master of blending his traditional wedding music with futuristic electronic soundscapes. For his new release Shlon, he has partnered with the eccentric label Mad Decent. You can listen to the record below, which following the (understandably) more somber To Syria, With Love, sounds like classic Souleyman.
