Live: Mohammad Reza Mortazavi & Burnt Friedman
DJ: Rabih Beaini

Mohammad Reza Mortazavi and Burnt Friedman, as YEK, create a groove-based, trance-like art music, which is both subtle and ecstatic. This results in a precisely timed harmony between the electronic sounds and live grooves. Thanks to the extreme acoustic range and his art, Mortazavi merges perfectly with Burnt Friedman’s signature sound and repertoire.
3 months ago the released their first record on Nonplace. "A transcendental rush from beginning to end." (Inverted-Audio)
"Blissful and often beatific, Yek is a subtly textural delight from start to finish." (Freq)

At the age of 9 Mortazavi already won his first national Tombak competition in his home country – which he went on to win a further six times. At twelve he started teaching. Over the years that followed he expanded the traditional playing method by more than 30 new stroke and finger techniques – culminating in concerts, productions and great international acclaim for Mortazavi.

At the age of 13 Bernd Friedmann started recording all musical works of his own, learning the basics of music through self-study. After initially studying art he relocated to Cologne, where his international career began. In addition to numerous collaborations, above all his work with Can drummer Jaki Liebezeit on “secret rhythms" spanning 17 years, he launched his own Nonplace label in 2000 with 46 releases to date.



Rabih Beaini aka Morphosis is a lone voice in electronic music. Few people thread as challenging and intriguing live shows as him, where dark wave, krautrock, post everything and techno all sit together in haunted hardware harmony. His own Morphine label is just as sonically unpredictable, so too his own cultured remixes or stunning long players such as the immediately timeless and standout ouvre that was 'What We Have Learned'. Unfamiliar and unmissable, the Lebanese artist's productions sound as live and alive as anything he does in the club, truly making him in a class of one.
