Hailing from Beirut, Lebanon, Sary Moussa aka RadioKVM is a self-taught electronic musician. Moussa grew up listening to rock and jazz, before diving into electronica. He started crafting his own melodies under the moniker RadioKVM in 2008. He collaborated closely with Lebanese producer Okydoky, organizing live gigs and releasing a batch of demos; the two men became notorious on the live circuit of Beirut’s electronic scene.

In later years, Moussa collaborated with Lebanese electronic producers Munma, Jad Atoui, and Liliane Chlela, releasing both remixes and original compositions for label compilations; he has also composed music for theatre and dance performances, as well as soundtracks for short films.

“Issrar” is RadioKVM’s first full-length album, and the first vinyl release from Lebanese independent label Ruptured. The process of creating the record was informed by frequent forays into Techno (TM404, Karl O’Connor…), Krautrock, Post-rock, Bass music, Birmingham techno, Dubstep, Loop music, and healthy doses of Terry Riley and Lamonte Young.

The album documents a shift in the way Moussa envisages and creates music. While he relied heavily on software-generated finite processes and patterns in the past, the computer became less involved in the set-up and composition of “Issrar”: all tracks on the album originally consist of 40 or 50-minute multi-track recordings, which were edited at a later stage.
