with special guests >
Chancha Via Circuito
One of the foremost exponents of Argentina’s digital cumbia scene, Pedro Canale aka Chancha Via Circuito has released 2 albums on Buenos Aires’ famed ZZK label and just released his 3rd album Amanasara on Brussels label Crammed Discs. Their blend of Argentinian folklore, Paraguayan harp and Andean mysticism, all processed through Pedro Canale’s own futuristic strain of electronic music, has garnered great reactions: the albums were hailed by Pitchfork and the New York Times, among others, and Chancha was enlisted for remix work by Gilles Peterson and Gotan Project. Expect a set of dubby cumbia and minimal electronic folk spheres straight from the Andes!
Muevelo! (Grandpamini & Pedrolito)
This Chilean/ Argentinian duo runs the famous Parisian Muevelo parties and are the top of the cream of new latino bass sounds from the americas. Some years ago Grandpamini already made Brussels sweat at a Nightshop party in the Recyclart and we’re happy to invite him again to play his own fun edits of reggaeton beats and tropical bass. mas perreo, mas perreo! Pedrolito is his sidekick at Muevelo and runs a saboroso radio show for Groovalizacion radio. Expect a heavy suave mix of villera street cumbia, tropical bass and dancehall.
Hosted by Rebel Up! dj’s SebCat & LeBlanc
As residents and hosts of the night, Sebcat & LeBlanc will warm up the night and keep it going till late. Expect as always a diverse and eclectic mix of tunes from around the world. Global bass, digital folk pop, any good beats from the global south, rooted in local traditions… Select global, play local!

Fri 21 Nov > Rebel Up! @ Le Guess Who Festival in RASA, Utrecht w/ Ogoya Nengo & Dodo Women’s Group (KY) + uKanDanZ (FR/ET)
Ogoya Nengo will do one of her first performances outside of Kenya. Born in the 1930s in a small village at the shores of Lake Victoria, she soon joined the socially critical Dodo singers, a genre and community which is in danger of vanishing. Ogoya became the rave of her time, singing to great chiefs, warriors and even colonial officers and missionaries. Despite Ogoya being a legendary Kenyan folk artist with a career spanning over three decades little people outside Kenya have had the chance of ever hearing her and her ensemble.
Inspired by traditional Ethiopian songs, uKanDanZ is an explosive musical hybrid of styles which, as the name suggests, are made to dance to. With guitar, bass, drums and tenor sax they occupy a vibrant place somewhere between rock, improvised jazz, noise and Ethiogroove. Front and centre is charismatic vocalist Asnake Guebreyes from Addis Abeba, chanting Ethiopian soul melodies that transcends the highly energetic music to unheard places. They deliberately cross all traditional musical borders, creating something new and unique while at the same time staying true to the origins of the genres they magically melt into one.
as always our Rebel Up! sounds will be in African, Latino, Caribbean, Arabic and Asian global spheres, tripping around the world in unknown sounds to make you bounce.
