That Syrian madhead Omar Souleyman has his 2nd album released through Sublime Frequencies and it's totally bonkers. 'Dabke 2020' features 8 tracks of some of the most intense busy sounding nuts music you're ears will have the chance to feast on. If you're not familair with him he's this Syrian chap who takes Syrian folk music to a new level with a variety of different influences permeating everyone of it's tapped orifices. It progresses slightly from Highway To Hassake as Omar has picked up some sort of kazoo sounding thing which is used in an incredible way in places where you just wouldn't expect it. If this is what all music is like in Syria then I want to go there!! It's also one of the few records in the office which united us all in like as there's only a tiny amount of things all of us end up liking. My only criticism is the bad packaging and the exorbitant cost of Sublime Frequencies records but there's nowt we can do about that. This is proper party music and as someone said in the office today.... 'techno music for Syrian cab drivers'. Smashing!
