Rabih Beaini’s Guide to Morphine Modern / Morphine Contemporary
The avant-garde curator on the highlights of the upcoming festival
The Lebanese, avant-garde cultivator of assorted experimental oddities from around the globe, has been operating his label Morphine Records out of Berlin for several years now. Sometimes DJing, sometimes producing, always challenging with daring, yet beautiful music.
Formerly known as Morphosis, Rabih Beaini can often be found leading new initiatives to integrate the contemporary sounds of his Middle Eastern home into the modern Western paradigm of what we understand electronic music to be. All of his hard work to date has led up to his first two-day festival taking place at Berghain on October 11th and 12th. During both evenings Beaini will present an array of classical, jazz, new and old world fusion-electronics from a select selection of global acts, all of which fall into his own style of uncompromising, stylistic music.
Ahead of the event, Rabih Beani picks his must-see acts performing at Morphine Modern / Morphine Contemporary, detailing why this mix of classical, rap, electronic, and visual artists is not to be missed.
