SANAM's music is a ritual where improvised rock, free jazz and noise underscore an exorcism of traditional Egyptian song and Arabic poetry. SANAM formed following an invitation to perform with Hans Joachim Irmler from the legendary German experimental group Faust, at Beirut's Irtijal music festival in 2021. Sandy Chamoun (vocals), Antonio Hajj (bass), Farah Kaddour (buzuk), Anthony Sahyoun (guitar, synth), Pascal Semerdjian (drums) and Marwan Tohme (guitars) bring a myriad of influences gleaned from years performing either solo or as members of influential acts in Beirut’s tight-knit independent music scene (such as Al Rahel al Kabir, Postcards, Kinematik and Oviid). Combining regional and local folklore and poetry with experimental forms of instrumental music are at the core of their Debut Album Aykathani Malakon which was DIY recorded in a traditional Lebanese house in Saqi Reshmaya, then mixed by Radwan Ghazi Moumneh (Jerusalem in My Heart).

Snakeskin (Julia Sabra and Fadi Tabbal)
Julia Sabra and Fadi Tabbal’s duo is visionary electronic dream pop, shapeshifting above ambient and industrial undercurrents. It is moody, unsettling, luminous – the culmination of a decade of collaboration and friendship between producer/musician/engineer Tabbal, and singer-songwriter/musician Sabra from indie trio Postcards.
Their debut album ‘Snakeskin’ was released on October 14, 2022, as part of the Corrosion Series –– a collaborative effort by Portland-based label Beacon Sound and Beirut-based label Ruptured. Sabra and Tabbal began working on the record in the aftermath of the August 2020 port explosion, composing their first track 'Roots' for the Ruptured-curated series The Drone Sessions.

june as
june is a Beirut based synthesist and DJ. Drawing on a strong connection between industry and vitality, june is steadily developing a peculiar approach to both his live and DJ sets, with a distinctive gritty flow and technique to pair, consistently weaving tales of a sort of resolute rapture. With a keen ear for the eerie and uncanny, june’s diggings have led into cavernous mixes and recordings, breaking patterned motion and eliciting a heightened sense of frequency.
His interest in sound synthesis and academic background have also led to endeavours in composing for film and theatre.
He co-founded Frequent Defect in 2016 alongside Patrik Abi Abdallah (h.w.g.a.), with Renata joining shortly after - and took on multiple roles among the mantles the collective shares. He has been an integral element in the latest resurgence in the local community, and works regularly alongside Jad Atoui, Try Harder and NÂR, as well as having performed live with the likes of the legendary Yo-yo Ma and renowned artists like Sharif Sehnaoui, Mazen Kerbaj, Jawad Nawfal (Munma) and Ziad Moukarzel among others.
