Bjork – Crystalline (Omar Souleyman remix) [stream]

Souleyman has infused the 'Biophilia' track with a driving Arabian influence, and a few lyrics of his own.


Words by: Charlie Jones

Syrian producer Omar Souleyman’s remix of one of the lead singles from Bjork’s Biophilia is an alarming and arresting mix of cultures, beats and lyrics. Wrapping the strains of Bjork’s original around a strong Arabian beat, Souleyman has also dubbed over the Icelandic star’s melody with some verbal additions of his own. According to a concerned Youtube user, the new words translate into “Oh that tall girl, Oh what a beauty… Look she’s coming, go follow her”. It may not be exactly what Bjork is trying to say, but it sounds irrepressibly good. Stream it here.
