Chafik Chennouf is from Amsterdam and is Head of Leyla Records. Leyla is the natural evolution of what Surgeon and Regis achieved with their British Murder Boys project over ten years ago. Leyla is uncompromising but also accessible, light and dark. Chennouf first began collecting techno in the late 1990s, focusing on the sounds coming out of Birmingham. A few years later he helped bring some of the scene’s key artists, like Inigo Kennedy, to Holland for the first time, even doing early live broadcasts on local online platforms. Today Chennouf is going back to his roots to focus on the techno he loved and give it a platform to grow. Berlin-based Philipp Drube is affiliated with Power Tower Radio as well as Ismus Berlin multi-media art group, who this month launched the Ismus music label. His sets are powerful, evoking many influences from uncompromising techno to dark & moody to driving atmostpherics. Frequent New Faces host Mario Berger welcomes and introduces these artists to the Tresor Floor.
