Mid-summer, 2021, Waleed quietly released his debut single ‘Se Rompen’. The response was anything but, with the track immediately taking hold as a sleeper hit that summer, being played out by the likes of Four Tet, Floating Points, Daphni, DJ Boring, DJ Seinfeld, Tourist and more. With word already spreading, an inclusion in Ben UFO‘s winter Essential Mix solidified the desire for more from this surprising new producer.
Today, Waleed gives just that, announcing his signing to City Slang (Caribou, Gold Panda) with a re-release of ‘Se Rompen’, offering the track on vinyl for the first time through a very limited (50) hand-numbered batch of test pressings which are available now.
Born in Washington DC to Iraqi/Puerto Rican parents, Waleed works in coding by day. Built around ready-made for the dancefloor kick and chopped vocals, ‘Se Rompen’ is an ambitious debut that showcases his focus on sound design. Waleed’s meshing of cultures and references gives ‘Se Rompen’ a unique perspective on dance music. At once ecstatic and melancholic.Purchase ‘Se Rompen’ here:
