"I’ve filmed the very first episode of the beat diaries on a balcony on the Portuguese island Madeira in May 2014. Presenting my beats live was of no particular concern to me until that point, but I was looking for a way to release music spontaneously. I needed something external that would keep me making those beats and videos, so I decided that whenever I would travel somewhere, I would film an episode. The beats needed to be done in a short time window and should at least aim to reproduce my mood, my experiences relating to that moment, thus functioning as a diary. All episodes ought to be recorded and filmed live and in one take.
Making a song on demand, presenting it in a more or less live way, finding a place to film it, carrying a lot of equipment, and working around weather conditions and curious bystanders have been among the challenges that have been presented to me, not to speak of impatient co-travellers. Up until now (January 2018), I’ve recorded more than 50 episodes and I’m thrilled that I was asked to collect some of them for this album. So I did. I’ve re-recorded a selection of episodes, re-producing them again from scratch, included some episodes that never came into existence and complemented them with shouterludes featuring some of the people I was meeting on my travels.
It took me over a year to produce this record and it was a journey making it. Featured are beats that have been originally composed in the last four years and shout outs from fellow beatmakers I had the privilege of meeting during this time. I had so much fun making those videos, crafting those beats, so I sincerely hope you’re enjoying this record.
Nuff said.


Ich möchte meiner Familie danken. Ohne sie könnte & würde ich nicht das machen, woran ich heute Freude finde. Meinen Eltern, Mini & Pepsi, die mich seit jeher nicht nur unterstützt, sondern zu fast Allem ermutigt haben. Meiner grossen Schwester Laura, die stets auf mich aufpasst. – Danke!

Ob zu Beginn von „khaderbai“ oder permanent seither, ohne Dich, Dani, wäre es nicht dasselbe. Danke für Deine Unterstützung, Deine Kritik, Dein Interesse.

Du erträgst mich nicht nur, Patricia, Du überstrahlst mein Zweifeln & Hadern: Danke für unser Zuhause.

An die verbleibende Le Flah Familie, Nik & Matthias: ohne Euch wäre Zürich nicht nur um das legendäre Le Flah ärmer, auch ich wäre nicht an diesem Punkt. Danke für die Inspiration, den Rückhalt, die Zusammenarbeit & Eure Freundschaft.

Ein grosses Dankeschön an Crazeebo, der unzählige Stunden mit mir im Studio verbrachte, um das Album zu mastern. Danke Tobi, Basti & Vinyl Digital dafür, dass sie an dieses Projekt glauben. Und vielen Dank André für Deine Arbeit am Artwork.

Special thanks to all my peers that recorded shoutouts for this record: I’ve learned from each and everyone of you!

khaderbai Zürich, Switzerland

khaderbai is a rather private beatmaker from Zurich, Switzerland, whose beats blend craftily soul, jazz and funk samples with hard drums and at times obscure sounds, all in the nostalgic spirit of boom bap music.
