Gan Gah (MR / Bxl)
Fed by traditional « Gnawa » and Berber rythms ever since he was born in the suburbs of Agadir, Morocco, young DJ and producer Gan Gah is now based in Brussels.This accomplished musician, who has been performing for many years as a beatmaker under various pseudonyms, knows how to shake a dancefloor with bewitching beats. Offering a cunning combination of club music and traditional North-African music/rythms/melodies, his first EP “Souktronics” is a declaration of love to his Moroccan roots and to modern electronic music which is about to make a lot of noise on worldwide dancefloors. Moroccan Bass, you said?

Dovecake (US / Bxl)
Intergalactic Body Trance Provider who washed up in Brussels a few years ago, but nomadic nonetheless and spends most of his time in different continents. Equal dj as expressive dancer, bounded to celestial ancestral interconnectivity. Adventures in Rhythm & Bass to make your heart melt and hips shake! Afro bounce bass vibes all in directions possible.

Thu 17 Dec > Rebel Up! SebCat @ Melting label night, Bonnefooi w/ Kognitif, IL:LO, Moderator & Beats & Culture

melting night
This thursday > >

Melting Records is a fresh independent record label from a team of music diggers from Greece and France. The label consists of people with different musical background and with a common passion for quality beats.

Kognitif (FR)
one of the most promising artists of the French underground hip hop scene, is visiting Brussels for one and only performance in Bonnefooi. His show will be a musical journey consisting of funky/jazzy beats to dark instrumental hip hop. His last album with Melting Records ‘My Space World’ (12’ vinyl) was a top seller in Berlin, Vienna, Brussels and Athens, while his latest album ‘Soul Food’ hits the top charts of Bandcamp.

Moderator (GR)
is a new talented Greek beatmaker with releases in the London based label Cult Classic Records. His last album ‘The World Within’ hit the top in charts of Bandcamp and fastly became the label’s top selling album. ‘The World Within’ is a trip from lounge-cinematic beats to all kinds of experimental hip hop styles.

il:lo (FR)
is a band consisted by 3 persons, 2 DJs and 1 trumpet player, releasing their music in the Belgium based label DLoaw & Co. They take their inspiration from their travels and take the names of their tracks from the towns they have visited. And so they came up with the title Places, a coming together of six destinations, six atmospheres: from the Italian village of Marta to call Imprenta in Granada. Il:lo’s sound is a blend of acoustic and synthetic melodies. Difficult to categorise, it could well be perceived as heavy as it is light, with its sombre bass lines as well as floaty brass tones.

Beats & Culture (GR)
is a YouTube channel owned by a Greek music digger promoting various styles of music such as Breaks, mashups, remix, hip hop, downbeat, jazz, swing, and tropical beats. He begun diggin beats-music back in 2008. His love in music can reach him listening reggae, dub, gypsy, klezmer and so goes on. Moreover, he is a member of the Greek-French record label called Melting Records.

Thu 7 May > Rebel Up! Soundclash @ Bonnefooi Bxl, w/ guest TroPiKal CaMeL (ISR – Berlin)


another special Rebel Up! Soundclash night at Bonnefooi and this time we go to the eastern mediterranean for some arabic spheres!

with special guest Tropikal Camel (ISR / Berlin)
Hailing from Jerusalem, currently living in Berlin, the grandson of Jewish immigrants from Morocco, Austria, Iraq and Kurdistan and growing up with hearing hebrew, arabic, french and german around him, Roi ‘Rocky’ Asayag is a true mix of Jewish and Arab bloodlines. His Tropikal Camel project is a musical mirror of a seminal journey into his Arabic roots. Soul-searching through his intricate identity, he takes us from Kurdistan and Iraq to Morocco. This is how Tropikal Camel is born; an Arab Jew chasing the lost connection to his Arab culture. Dressed in a Moroccon Kaftan cloak, he becomes a witch doctor, a master of ceremony of a musical journey that tries to raise questions and purify the spirit. His vibrant sound is a maze of dense arabic spheres from the past and present, heavy dancehall bass and tropical electro.
His new single at Shouka records from Tunis:

DJ SEBCAT (Rebel Up! Bxl)

On his own tonight as LeBlanc is away on business… Bonnefooi says > This guy is one of Brussels’ most underestimated Global Groove Dj’s, with a musical network from Rajasthan to New Yorkistan and a musical selection that goes even farther and deeper into tropicalism and obscure global dance music. Sebcat is also a fulltime musical nexus, the way he blends his global grooves together in a party he also re-arranges, feeds and stimulates musical culture. Whatever you will get from him, in sound or food, it will be filled with specials spices and hotness. Caliente!
