Ziad Nawfal Guest Mix for Recordat // 07 February 2021

Another “archival” mix, this one was commissioned for Recordat for their Re:levant series of podcasts; it showcases music recorded by Lebanese artists hailing from different genres and music denominations, between 2003 and 2012.

Some of the tracks are basic demos (Kitano Home Ensemble, Liliane Chlela), others are live versions (Court-Circuit, Kerbaj/Sehnaoui) or studio sessions, a couple were officially released, while overall nothing is properly mastered. They provide a window into a more frivolous, less rigid time, where experimentation and trial-and-error were often the norm.

1. Kitano Home Ensemble – Sunday Afternoon (Unreleased)
2. Liliane Chlela – I Scream (Unreleased)
3. Tarek Atoui / Uriel Barthelemi / Paed Conca – Session 01 (Unreleased)

Live from Beirut: Mixes by Ziad Nawfal for “Time in this Time” // January 2021

Last August, we were asked to contribute material to a project by harvest entitled #timeinthistime, meant to examine our connection with time, post-Covid, post-August 4th blast, post-everything.

In the following weeks, we produced two music mixes, one of already-released tracks from our “Ruptured Sessions” compilation series. Another of exclusive tracks from musicians we’ve worked with time and time again in the last few years.
They are Fadi Tabbal, Youmna Saba, Anthony Sahyoun, Charbel Haber, Sharif Sehnaoui, Aya Metwalli and Jawad Nawfal.
We also asked these musicians for a picture, preferably from their phone’s camera roll, that would represent the year 2020 for them.

You can see these photos and listen to the 2 music mixes at the link below.
As ever, we are grateful to the artists who donated their tracks, and trusted us to make good use of their music and images.
Also grateful to Nour Raad for her images that accompany the mixes beautifully.
