Omar Souleyman makes triple bonkers music. Knowing next to nothing about Syrian music I can't really vouch for whether Highway to Hassake (apparently out of print on CD but now in on super heavyweight Sublime Frequencies double vinyl) is actually any good because I've got no local frame of reference for it but what I can tell you is that it's immensely entertaining and probably about the busiest shit you'll ever hear in your life. Ridiculous twiddly synth lines snake all over the place, run into each other, forget where they're going, turn around and go back to the beginning, vomit in the shoes of the cheapo beats and generally confuse the fuck out of you while some perma-sunglassed don MCs with supreme authority using words I don't understand. It's something you just need to hear for yourself really. Don't try to play it at 45rpm though, your head'll probably explode all Scanners like. I'm one of you. You're one of me?
