Salem Al Fakir - 4 O’Clock


One of the most actual names of this Spring Salem Al Fakir releases his new single "4 O’Clock" and new video for it. Quite original, interesting and nice electronic track with verses you probably can compare with some Lykke Li's and Robyn's songs and cosmic synth sound choruses. If you expected something in the key of "Keep On Walking" (Salem's previous single that made him runner-up of this year Melodifestivalen), it sounds different but mixes will help you to understand the taste of it better. Especially I recommend you to give a listen to a mix of Adrian Lux, another one was made by Damien Adore, also there's cool mix of Claes Rosen. Don't forget to check brilliant Salem's performance of "4 O’Clock" in Nyhetsmorgon and to visit our dearest blog-friend Planet Salem for loads of interesting information about this talented artist.

Oh, thank you Borneo, i actualy didn't know about it :)

Paul, I think this is quite experimental album not for everyone and for understanding from the first listen, I feel like I also need to give it new try as looking for some "Keep On Walking" trend songs I didn't find it and now after discovering 4 O’Clock I think I've missed some cool stuff.

Thanks for the mention Damian, that's lovely :)))

You need to check out all three of Salem's albums to get the full musical picture of what he is about....and you will definitely discover many delights along the way.

"Ignore This" may be a little more experimental and could disappoint those who were expecting a whole album of "Keep On Walking"-type songs, however "4 O'Clock" (and all its mixes) should definitely appeal to a wide range of musical tastes.
