A long time in the works, Legion 808 debut instalment on French-born, recently Brussels-relocated imprint Unknown Precept – ‘Tombouctou Crisis‘ – finally pulls out the landing
Chafik Chennouf heads up the uncompromising Leyla Records and straddles the increasingly familiar verticals of DJ, producer and label owner. An approach that we could all learn from in 2019. Of course, music paints a million words, so we took the opportunity to draft in Chafik to provide a mix to showcase his sound and share a rare selection of words.
Longing to find out more about the imprint’s launch and how the Maenad Veyl project came to life, we seized the occasion to have a chat with Thomas Feriero as he lifts a corner of the veil on his inspirations for the record, production process and further plans for the future.

Taking up the room between EBM, screwed-up industrial, broken hip-hop and further unidentified electronics, Beau Wanzer’s mix defies the notions of easy-listening and regular mix format. We sat down with the US based producer to discuss big-money studio gear, creative process and his absolute hatred for all things involving cottage cheese.
