Ziad Nawfal for Radio Ma3azef – Anthony Sahyoun Takeover // 10 November 2021

Ziad Nawfal’s November 2021 mix for Radio Ma3azef featured a guest takeover from Lebanese musician and producer ANTHONY SAHYOUN, on the occasion of the release of his solo album Proof by Infinite Descent:

“This mix acts as a sort of prologue to my album Proof by Infinite Descent’s release on the 19th of November. It’s basically a mash-up of the work I was involved in while the record was materializing. It has some tracks from the record, some live stuff some weird morphs, as well as some of the collaborative work that’s a big part of my life, specifically the collaborations I was working on during while producing Proof: Kinematik Ensemble – with Rudy Ghafari, Akram Hajj, Jad Atoui, Ziad Moukarzel and Teddy Tawil; NP – with Jad Atoui, May Berde – with Teddy Tawil; and a track by The Art of Boo, which I produced.
I firmly believe that collaborative work is the blueprint for my individual work, it only makes sense to have them here – Anthony”
