Omar Souleyman – “Darb El Hawa (Cole Alexander Remix)”

Syrian singer Omar Souleyman is known for his ongoing festival presence and string of collabs with producers, notably his Four Tet-produced album Wenu Wenu. He returned earlier this summer with the LP Bahdeni Nami and now his album cut “Darb El Hawa” has been remixed by Black Lips guitarist Cole Alexander. It’s an unlikely union considering Souleyman’s history with electronic dabbles, but Alexander lays an ominous sheet over the original bouncy track. Shrieky effects brings one of the most eerie ambiances to back Souleyman’s voice, making you feel like a dark presence is nearing. Listen below.
