Electromanteca (CL)
This Chilean producer, DJ, and musician based in Buenos Aires (AR) with more than 10 years of focused musical creations (including a love affair with Digital Cumbia). His musical repertoire includes beats like hip-hop, global bass, and electronica mixed with tropical samplers. He founded the Perrera Cultural collective and has been the host of innovative parties in Buenos Aires – such as Boiler Roof and Peput! Currently, he is developing his first EP Nuevacumbiacción, a two-sided release with his own sound on side A and mashups on side B. His unique musical genius inspires and energizes souls worldwide as he journeys across the globe.

Lt.Dan (IL)
His love for music goes way back to his hometown Jerusalem, from making mixtapes to his parents’ parties when he was 10 years old, through working in “The Ear Way” music shop, where he acquired perspective, passion & fine ear for unusual sounds – from jazz, post punk, wave, classic & even pop. This wonderful house of music forged Dan’s sensitivity for esthetic sound and quenched his constant curiosity for new / old school music. After making his name in Tel Aviv with Legotek crew and many party concepts, he moved to the electronic mecca of Berlin, where he led the DonnersDucks party in Ritter Butzke for a few years. He regularly spins his sounds around Europe in cities like Hamburg, Milano, Warsaw, Prague, Vienna, Copenhagen, Paris & Barcelona to name a few, spreading his open minded music world to various dancefloors.

Wedn 23 Aug > Rebel Up dj @ Feeërieen w/ Mdou Moctar (NE) & Derya Yildirim & Grup Simsek (TR/FR)

Feeërieen festival @ Parc Royale, organised by Ancienne Belgique.

2 concerts > Niger desert rock to groovy psych-pop from Anatolia + Rebel Up dj support

Mdou Moctar
Thanks to label boss Christopher Kirkley, who can easily be described as the modern day Alan Lomax, Sahel Sounds has also become one of those unmissable benchmarks. To him we owe the discovery of Les Filles De Illigahdad (recently catchy at BRDCST) and the desert blues of Mdou Moctar. On his debut, Mdou Moctar further distinguished himself from other Touareg acts, like Bombino or Tinariwen, by the striking use of the auto-tune. Live, Mdou Moctar mostly sounds raw and extremely energetic. Moctar also provided the music for the very first Touareg film ‘Akounkounak Tedalat Taha Tazoughai’ about a young musician who wants to make it big. Fun Fact: the film was a remake of ‘Purple Rain’. He just has released his new allbum ‘Sousoume Tamachek‘ on Sahel Sounds. Desert power!

Derya Yildirim & Grup Simsek.
At the 10 years of Rebel Up / Nightshop party in Recyclart, some of you already had the good fortune of seeing Derya & Grup Simsek play. Hearing the voice of Derya Yildirim, it only takes a few seconds until your soul willingly allows itself to be bowled over. This singer/multi-instrumentalist namely possesses a unique voice that exudes both melancholy and longing. Musically, she is accompanied by Grup Şimşek that excels with its hypnotic Anatolian psych-pop. Let’s just say: a smooth mix of Turkish folk, grooves and psychedelica. Aside from own compositions, Derya Yildirim also interprets gems by Turkish artists like (protest)singer Selda Bağcan, rock pioneer Barış Manço, Moğollar (founding father of Turkish folk rock) and the Turkish poet Nazım Hikmet. A piece of trivia for the benefit of your inner joy: those who fall for the sound of Derya Yildirim, will also love Altin Gün who is to perform at Global Street Sounds (17.09.2017) in AB, curated by Rebel Up & AB.

DJ support by Rebel Up SebCat, expect sahel guitars, indian grooves, oriental psyche and much more.
