Venue = Roodkapje Rotterdam, within walking distance from Rotterdam CS.

≈ GAN GAH (ma | low up)
He’s on the rise; Gan Gah is a young, DJ / producer fed by traditional Gnawa and Berber rythms since he was born in the suburbs of Agadir. Now based in Brussels, he knows how to shake a dancefloor with his bewitching beats. Offering a clever combination of club music and traditional North-African music, Gan Gah’s first EP “Souktronics” shows his love for both his Moroccan roots and modern electronic music. Moroccan Bass, you said?

≈ DEENA ABDELWAHED (tn | infiné)
As the main female representative of this generation of Tunisian DJs and producers, Deena Abdelwahed is not one to pander to commercial trends. She explores the urban rythms in the aftermath of the Tunisian Jasmine Revolution, where social conservatism has been on the rise and only a few clubs adapt to innovation. Deena caters to those who seek alternatives to electronic music parties that either serve as lazy entertainment or an excuse to blow off steam and vent social frustration. In the past few years, since moving to Toulouse, Deena has made herself heard at music festivals all around Europe winning over crowds with her energetic music.

≈ TROPIKAL CAMEL (il | arabstazy, shouka)
The Afro-haired electronica/beats/global bass shaman from Jerusalem; Tropikal Camel aka Rocky B Assayag is a musical explorer traversing genres, creating an original musical language; a journey into Jerusalem’s unique sound and a fusion of Bass, Techno, Hip-Hop and the raw rhythms of tribal Middle- Eastern and North-African music.

≈ DUCKFOOD (nl | rebel up, pantropical)
Duckfood’s massive music collection absorbs anything from renaissance to Moroccan trance, so who else to ask for this Pantropical x Arab Camera special? His DJ selections are colourful and not hampered by any preoccupation about genre. Just dig in!

Mon 26 Sept > Eric Isaacson (Mississippi Records) Talk & Docu’s + DJ Set + surprise concert Soema Montenegro (AR) @ NGHE Mariniers, Molenbeek Bxl

14237608_1772377822979780_2521242159489086516_nMonday evening 26 sept @ NGHE Mediatheque, an evening of Talks & Films with Eric Isaacson of Mississippi Records.

In a short time, the Portland, US-based Mississippi Records, as run by Eric Isaacson, has bypassed most antiquated record label conventions and has, through a few guiding principles and great taste, gained cult status, lots of sales and love and praise from all quarters.

Mississippi has produced over 150 releases on LP & 100 releases on cassette tape, a catalogue that crisscrosses borders, digging up joyous albums, singles and unheard songs that were being left under the bed, out in the shed and unloved by most record companies. They have managed to do this on a shoestring budget, without ever advertising or engaging in promotion of any kind & distributing only through DIY avenues.

A few years ago Eric began touring Europe, humbly presenting his ideas and personally imbued histories of music (often alongside Mississippi-affiliated artists) with resounding success, and a scorching trail of sell-out shows. He returns for another round of talks, DJ sets and archive films in Autumn 2016.

soemaSoema Montenegro (AR)

Argentinian folklore in a contemporary sound. Soema is a poet, shaman, a great cook and a first class singer. Intense and dramatic. In her music you can hear the rugged landscape and the culture of her native Argentina, from the pampas to the Andes mountains. Sensual, mysterious and overwhelming. Think of Meredith Monk meets Yma Sumac. French director Vincent Moon, founder of the “Take Away Shows”, made the symbolic number 100 with her in four parts, filmed in Buenos Aires. some clips here, here and here.

Hello Bxl,

This Friday @ La Tentation. Afro Groove night with Burkinabé Belgo band Afrikän Protoköl. Documentary Release + Concert + DJ Set Party

Afrikän Protoköl is the Afro Jazz Sextet started by Belgian saxophonist Guillaume Van Parys. After meeting with drummer Moïse Ouattara from Burkina Faso, he developed a special style based on traditional rhythms from Burkina Faso and West Africa. Jazzy riffs, grooves and improvisations melt together into what we might call a “warm and conscious cross-cultural fusion.” With a rhythmic section from Burkina Faso and horns from Belgium and Ivory Coast, Afrikän Protoköl brings a very colorful and lively show. Better get ready for some heat!

Before the show, a documentary about their trip & recording session in Burkina Faso. For the afterparty, Rebel Up! SebCat will take to the decks with some pure African dancefloor selections

Programme :
20h30 Opening
21h00 Documentary release
22h00 Concert Afrikän Protoköl

This Saturday @ KickTapass bar, Bxl >

Rebel Up! psychedelic cumbia party hosted by Rebel Up! SebCat & friends, with special guest DJ Pinchado.

DJ Pinchado ( aka Julio Lozano ), born in La Boca, Buenos Aires in 1969, is an experimental Argentinian musician touring extensively over Europe and Latin America, solo as DJ Pinchado since 2003, and as a member of the duo Constitu Sound since 2010. A precursor of the electro cumbia music genre, he loves to cut and paste cumbia loops in an noisy style. He reuses sounds from traditional cumbia from Peru and Colombia, especially psychedelic chicha and huayno styles.
