Back in October 2014, the Ruptured music label released its first vinyl record, Issrar, by Lebanese electronic artist radiokvm.

A track from this LP is featured in this month’s Wire Tapper #38 exclusive promotional CD, given away with the August issue of UK magazine The Wire.

As with previous volumes this CD, which has been compiled by Shane Woolman, Andy Tait and Katie Gibbons, is packaged in a heavy-duty card sleeve designed by The Wire‘s art director Ben Weaver, and contains a range of new, rare or exclusive tracks from across the spectrum, of the kind of underground/outsider musics covered in The Wire.

We are proud!


Issrar was also featured by The Wire on NTS Radio:

Ruptured presents:

A launch concert for Lebanese electronic artist RADIOKVM‘s first release ISSRAR

Featuring live music by radiokvm & live video by Rami el Sabbagh

[ISSRAR is the first vinyl release from Ruptured. It will be available in a limited edition of 300 hand-numbered LP’s with gourmet jacket]


Hailing from Beirut, Lebanon, SARY MOUSSA aka RADIOKVM is a self-taught electronic musician. Constantly busy absorbing, analyzing and trying to reproduce in his own manner the ambient sounds surrounding him, he started taking music lessons as a kid, but soon found out that experimentation, e-learning, reading and trial and error processes were a lot more efficient and interesting. He was into making electronic music, and no one around him knew what a synth, a filter or a drum machine were!

Moussa grew up listening to rock and jazz, before delving headlong into electronica. He started crafting his own melodies under the moniker radiokvm in 2008. He collaborated closely with Lebanese producer Okydoky, organizing live gigs and releasing a batch of demos; the two men became notorious on the live circuit of Beirut’s electronic scene. In later years, Moussa collaborated with Lebanese electronic producers Munma, Jad Atoui, and Liliane Chlela, releasing both remixes and original compositions for label compilations; he has also composed music for theatre and dance performances (Ali Chahrour’s ‘Fatmeh’), as well as soundtracks for short films.


Born in Beirut in 1979, Rami el Sabbagh is a Lebanese video maker. He graduated from the Institute of Scenic and Audio-Visual Studies (IESAV), Saint Joseph University in Beirut in 2004. His videos include ‘C’est de ta faute, quelque part’ (It’s Somewhat Your Fault, 2003), ‘2mg of Rotten Blood on Pure White Snow’, and ‘The Last Hero’ (2012). He is also a VJ since 2005 and a DJ since 2006.


[In collaboration with Tunefork, Beirut Art Center, Beirut Jam Sessions and Al-Akhbar]

The Ruptured Sessions is a series of live recordings produced by Lebanese radio host Ziad Nawfal in the studios of Radio Lebanon. The sessions take place during Nawfal’s weekly program Ruptures, with musicians from Beirut’s alternative scene and elsewhere.
