Music Content and Copy
Our new EP is a mandala of earthy and electric tones blended together with soft, driving drama. Two storytellers join the Souq ranks; Turkish Omerar Nanda and Russian Zuma Dionys complement each other’s worlds with ease, gifting us with an entrancing piece of work where traditional folk sounds are curbed by edgy electric ones. Hebele Hubulu comically refers to the language of those who speak with dogma and pretence, its cascading vocals emulating nonsense words in a jaunty march forward. It is a call to reflect on how you speak to and of the world, a call on not taking yourself so seriously. Berlin Based Zuma Dionys crafts cosmic landscapes in his work, this time serving us the zesty Belantash, rhythmically coiling and clapping, reaching a peak of electronic Oriental groove. We hope you enjoy this peculiar beauty of an EP.
HOSH - Become One Press Release
Certain instants deserve a life past their present - Become One by HOSH gives them just that. Become One is a yearly compilation illustrating a crowd, venue and performer coming together in synergy. Each live recording will feature a HOSH set ripe with unreleased material from a diverse collection of artists. After a decade of touring, the producer, DJ and label boss now draws a connecting line between vibrant venues where there’s just something special in the air, a feeling, a history.
We begin on the Atlantic Coast with Warung Beach Club Brazil, known for euphoric melodic sunrises, and bring these vibrations to international waters. Artists on the first BECOME volume exhibit a modern interpretation of the progressive sound that Warung has always shared a close history to, since the golden days of Global Underground. The diverse mix of producers features a mix of well known artists like Pig & Dan, D-Nox & Beckers, Karmon, Jeremy Olander, ARTBAT, and key fryhide family members like Tone Depth, Tim Engelhardt, Simao, 1979 and new talents.
First the mix, then the gradual release of tracks over the year, instant by instant, exporting the potential of a moment that is significant for locals, artists, and the global dance community.

On Saturday the 27th, expect another afternoon visit to varied shades of house, from deep to progressive to afro, wrapped up on a terrace chock full of smiles – all for a very special Halloween edition.
Souq Records - Dizharmonia EP Press Release
Greek duo Dizharmonia mystically dip their paintbrush into sounds of a faraway time and space, rooting them into a dark and ethereal present.

The same sun shines into the house of two unsuspecting souls, whose front doors play a game of hide and seek. The game is over as soon as their eyes meet. Jarra translates to neighbor, evoking the dance of side-by-side homes and their dwellers glimpsing fragments of each other’s lives. Through effusive downtempo, Shkoon re-ignites a traditional Iraqi story, one that sings of neighbors falling in love, weaved with melancholy and celebration, transposing of the aurora of a simpler past onto the poignancy of the present.
Stories travel through eras and peoples, carried by those who conjure them. Jarra comes alive to the tune of Shkoon’s vocalist Ameen alongside his fellow countryman the gypsy Violinist Maher and the German Musician Thorben. The remixing artists infuse folklore with evocative modern soundscapes; Nacim Gastli’s progressive passion, Boshoco’s frenzied grooves, Keybe Segg & Pandhora’s emotive deep house heights. They all explore a different facet, with words, sounds, gestures and signs of the past coming alive as a musical tale is revived for dark and light dance floors alike.
