Rebel Up! in Germany this saturday! 🙂
We’ll be playing Domicil club in Dortmund at the WDR Cosmo Global Player party together with our Moroccan grandmaster dj friend Ali T. Global sounds & beats to make your feet go wild 🙂
Domicil is famous a one of Germany’s prime jazz club and has an amazing sound system, a dream for every music loving DJ & listener 🙂
Global Player, the Funkhaus Europa (now Cosmo) club night, is already since 10 years a wild global party in the Dortmunder nightlife. Both resident-DJs Ali T and Kosta Kostov play the best selections from the Balkan, Oriental, Latino and Afro for a true worldtripping feel & vibe. Rebel Up! joins in the fun, see you there! Bis bald!

in De Peper restaurant of OT301, there will be some live shows earlier in the evening and at midnight followed by a Rebel Up dj set from SebCat til the end, expect lots of global flavours from all the continents, in vintage and electro style
The event is practically sold out, only 50 tickets at the door, so come early if you ‘re keen to be there! 🙂
Next day on sunday afternoon there is a swapping market and musical matinee afternoon at our homestead venue OCCII. The Fly Agaric collective organises this afternoon of various swapping and with a special concert by Moroccan musician Lahcen Akil and the Chaabi Brothers. Wow!
Lahcen Akil was born in 1969 in the village of Tamlalte on the route of the thousand Kasbahs in the Moroccan High Atlas. Influenced by acoustic music and traditional Amazigh songs, he started music very young. As songwriter and poet, he writes songs about the beauty of the region which he plays on a self-made 5-stringed lothar lute, composed of a wooden handle, a palm soundboard and goatskin. Lahcen is joined by fellow villager and percussionist El Houssain Safir who plays the bendir, a traditional drum with vibrating snare. For the occasion, two more musicians come along: the bassist David and accordionist Matthieu. Be ready for a compelling evening of raw Amazigh roots out of one of the most beautiful regions in the world!
Sadly, this is our LAST EVER party night at De Vinger, as it soon will be closed and demolished, what a shame 🙁
We will be joined by our new Rebel Up! member DJ DUCKFOOD who will Heat Up the dancefloor for you to freely run, jive, and just dance for the hell of it. As usual, expect a fine Rebel Up! mix of old and gritty tunes with newer weirder than ever music from all around the globe: Calypso, Soukouss, Cumbia, Desert tunes and other genres in the making.
The entrance fee should be 3€ but it can also be more if you feel like helping out this bar De Vinger which as always intended to be just an open stage for young and less young local and international artists. Just providing what has become a rarity in Den Haag : a venue for alternative music.
Another Rebel Up! Soundclash night coming up with a sweet line up of afrolicious guests.
East London musician A.J.Holmes is the founding member & singer of The Hackney Empire band, who play a marriage of afro-pop and soukous paired with traditional pop sensibilities as a serious warm vibe. A.J. learned to play African *palm wine* guitar music from Folo Graff who played with Sierra Leonese legend S.E. Rogie (the king of palm wine guitar music) and from that moment on he got totally sucked into African music which also resulted into co-organising the succesfull Secousse club nights of tropical madness in London together with global electronic duo Radioclit (M.I.A., The Very Best, Amadou & Mariam). On this night he will play a solo palm wine guitar set as warmup, followed by a super special set with guitar & dj decks at the same time for a unique approach of his mixed African sound. We can only say; not to be missed! Listen to his mixtape & songs of what to expect.
dj Alex Figueira, born in Venezuala with Brazilian roots, has a BIG passion for vinyl; he is the co owner of the Vintage Voudou vinyl shop in A’dam, a grand collector of vintage African and Latin vinyls, runs the Music With Soul label and plays in the bands Fumaça Preta & Conjunto Papa Upa. This passionate spinning man will sure make you bounce & swing with his special delicious selections from the tropics. and oh, it’s his birthday party!!!
