*2024 stock. 200 copies limited edition* Kinematik spent the best part of 2020 under lockdown, trying to come to grips with Lebanon's and the world's new realities, battling societal, economical and sanitary hurdles and obstacles. In October 2020, upon receiving an invitation from Irtijal Festival in Beirut to perform in its 20th edition, the former trio evolved into a full-blown ensemble, comprising a total of 6 musicians - the core line-up of Anthony Sahyoun, Rudy Ghafari and Akram Hajj was joined by frequent collaborators Jad Atoui, Ziad Moukarzel and Teddy Tawil. The Irtijal performance laid the roots for a series of recording sessions, that coalesced a few months later into the long-form, elaborate compositions that make up "Al Jadi", the band's third album - with the idea of imitating the mechanics behind electronic music, in a jazz-like big band format. The result is a culling, a peek into the annihilation of everything that breathes, a sick joke.
