Today's episode of the Kaput podcast has been a long time coming. We originally planned to meet up with Rabih Beaini at last year's Meakusma festival in Eupen, Belgium, but a pretty bad case of the flu postponed our conversation. Somehow that was a good thing, because it gave us the opportunity to visit Rabih at his work home, the Morphine Raum, the music studio/happening location he runs in Berlin Kreuzberg.
Rabih Beaini was born in Lebanon and still has strong ties to his homeland and its music scene, even though he has been living in Berlin for some time now. After the catastrophic explosion in the port of Beirut, he organised an emergency fundraising campaign and released a benefit compilation to help those affected by the disaster.
Rabih Beaini began his musical career in the 90s under the Morphosis imprint; in addition to his own activities as a DJ and producer, he runs the Morphine label and has released music by the likes of Hieroglyphic Being, Anthony "Shake" Shakir, Container, Charles Cohen and Marta De Pascalis.
It is my huge pleasure to talk kaput today with Rabih Beaini.
