bjork / omar souleyman - The Crystalline Series (Omar Souleyman Mixes)
*Ships Friday* Praise be to Björk! The impeccably outrageous artist has only gone and got Syrian folk superstars Omar Souleyman and his band to deliver three sterling remixes. We can't think of another artist of her calibre who would have the insight to cross such cultural and stylistic boundaries, but she's done it, and in famous style. A-side is a sumptuous cover of 'Crystalline', weaving her distinctive wail into Souleyman's signature Dabke bounce. B-side 'Tesla' is better still, featuring a more prominent performance from keyboardist Rizan Sa'id and hugely benefitting from the proper studio recording; his rippling synthetic drum rolls have never sounded so criss! To conclude, Omar takes centre-stage for 'Mawal', reverberating across a beatless desert of droning synth and lushly ornate synth scales. Incredible stuff. An essential purchase.
