“Somewhere on the Venn diagram of the underground, Syrian wedding singer Omar Souleyman, cult skatewear brand Palace, and London label The Trilogy Tapes overlap: people who listen to unconventional music and wear unconventional clothing. Palace and The Trilogy Tapes’ branding is so strong, you imagine their record with Souleyman would sell out even if the music was terrible. But in fact Heli Yuweli is a great release.”
Omar Souleyman / Rezzett – Heli Yuweli
Mad Trilology Tapes-12 by Syrian dabke superstar Omar Souleyman and the label’s incognito operators Rezzett.
Ultra-lush strings and Souleyman's voice soaked in tape distorion, driven hard by heavy-bouncing Detroit basslines and flanged claps. “Rerezz” version is another hidden gem. Don't sleep on this one!
