Omar Souleyman (SY)
Who could’ve foreseen that a wedding singer from Ras al Ayn, Syria, would become a cult hero? There is an undeniable bond between the legacy the 50-year-old delves in, a synthesized version of the Levantine dance music Dabke and acid house. In both cases musicians cultivate undulating synths and effective rhythms, and in both cases it feels like your head is about to explode from the stimuli, while the hips shakes along.
