FACT mix 291 is a smouldering set from Morphosis.
Call us unimaginative, but Lebanon isn’t the first place we associate with electronic music, nor indeed the 31st. But it’s where Rabih Beaini a.k.a. Morphosis was born and reared. Heavily involved in music even as a little nipper, he moved to Italy in 1996, and come the new millennium started releasing music as Morphosis, primarily through his own Morphine Records label.
His sinuous, cerebral house and techno confections were brought to a wider international audience when picked up for release by Netherlands-based M>O>S Records. The ‘Cetrik’ (2009) and ‘Running Out’ (2010) 12″s caught the attention of dedicated dance-pickers, but it was the arrival earlier this year of Morphosis’s What We Have Learned LP – a co-release from Morphine, Delsin and M>O>S – that made him the talk of the (world) town.
Morphosis has put together a hugely enjoyable and substantial mix of chicaning techno and gritty electronics. You know what to do.
