Omar Souleyman – “Warni Warni (bEEdEEgEE Remix)”
Gang Gang Dance’s Brian DeGraw has lately been recording under the name bEEdEEgEE, and his debut solo album SUM/ONE drops next week. And now he’s reworked “Warni Warni,” one of the standout tracks from Syrian singer Omar Souleyman’s new Four Tet-produced album Wenu Wenu. In his remix, DeGraw adds some cosmic Hypercolor float to the fast, trancey pounding, but Souleyman’s voice still shines right through it. Listen below.
Wenu Wenu is out now on Ribbon Music, and SUM/ONE is out 12/3 on 4AD. Meanwhile, Souleyman will join Morrissey, Mary J. Blige, and others in performing at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert at Oslo’s Spektrum 12/11.
