If I’m 100% honest it’s difficult to detect the effect of the much-talked about Four Tet production of Omar Souleyman’s new album Wenu Wenu on the title track. It’s business as usual for Souleyman but it’s easy to forget how the Syrian’s music might sound like possibly the most ridiculous sounding music since ‘Swamp Thing’ when you first hear it. Regardless, this is proper global dance music right here.
Four Tet produced the LP in Brooklyn earlier this year with Souleyman who now lives in Turkey. The album is out on October 22nd on Ribbon Music.
