This thursday, a last minute Rebel Up Soundclash @ OCCII with a very special guest from Mali > > >
LUKA PRUDUCTIONS (Mali / Sahel Sounds)
Luka Guindo, rapper, producer, and multi-instrumentalist and one of the most sought after producers of contemporary Malian Hip Hop. Working from a small bedroom sized studio alongside a busy street in the Malian capital city, Luka has built a reputation as one of the most prodigious beatmakers. Working with artists such as Supreme talent show, Ami Yerewolo, Iba One, van baxy and Sidiki Diabaté, Luka productions officiel is a household name in Bamako’s Hip Hop scene. New age music from West Africa. Lush and hypnotic dreamscapes combine traditional instrumentation with sweeping electronics, field recordings, and soothing affirmations. Bamako based composer Luka Productions delves into avant-griot, transforming ancient music into the 21st century. The songs are meditative and sage, as voices guide the listener through ways of living, from the village life to the modern world. Inspired from early electronic music, library records, and new age, this is easily one of the most left field recordings to ever come out of Mali.
RebelUp SebCat says; “amazing subtle album of afro-electronic moods, between the city & the bush. Modern Malian music from the young generation like you never heard…”

After 5 years of existence, Rebel Up! has decided to invade downtown Den Haag. this friday we will have our first Rebel Up! Soundclash night in Agga @ café De Vinger. your Rebel Up! dj´s Palm M & Sebcat will be joined by Dubcovsky (Kako Da Ne/Casa Babilon). The city will rise this time to the global sound and fury of 3 stubborn DJs :
Sebcat (Be/NL) – The man has travelled and brought back loads of music from the outside world. He’ll introduce tribal and transcendental, Hi and Lo-fi tunes to your body n ears. anything goes from slow Greek Rebetika to swinging Nu Cumbia, vintage Ghanaian records, electro folk from the Sahel, Hausa autotune pop and unreleased Shangaan electro and much much more hotness….
Dubcovski (NL) – The guy has already worked its magic around the Netherlands but its main outpost is Utrecht where he and his kinds conflagrate various venues with their Neo Folk, Abstract Balkan waves. If you haven’t sweat all your fluids on the dancefloor yet. Be prepared to shake it madly with him. The trumpet flow never stops just like in Kusturica’s.
Palm M (Fr/NL) A French dude with a flair for good refreshing songs like Haïtian biguine, Surinamese hits, a slice of Brazilian new scene and some hidden tracks to clash as hell with his friends on stage.
