Store Mix 014 | Rabih Beaini Digs Rush Hour


Output is partly dictated by approach. After requesting Lebanese born producer, DJ and Morphine label owner Rabih Beaini for a store mix, he asks us to make the record selection for him. "It would be fun to work with tracks that are unfamiliar to me", he explains. The RH crew dug the bins and Beaini starts from scratch with approximately a hundred tracks to select from, creating cinematic, dissonant harmonies with his mixes.

Rabih Beaini is a lone voice in electronic music. As Morphosis, Beaini has been crafting away in the nether-regions of the techno underworld since the 90s. Few people thread as challenging and intriguing live shows as him, where dark wave, krautrock, post everything and techno all sit together in haunted hardware harmony. With his store mix, despite his adventurous approach, Beaini proves to be no different as a DJ.

This is the fourteenth in a series of Rush Hour Store mixes, where we invite our favorite artists and DJs to dig the bins and record us a mix on the spot. Please go to Soundcloud's page for more info on the featured tracks.
