This friday night 26th @ Theater Kikker in Utrecht, there´s a super awesome NON WESTERN UNDERGROUND CLUB NIGHT organised by Impakt Festival, where we will play a special contextual Rebel Up! DJ/VJ set.

The concept of this year´s Impakt festival is *No More Westerns*, roughly translated to the western influence outside the west (or ofcourse vice versa!) and this night will be all about the musical and visual side of this. Expect a night that’s action packed with currents of transglobal clubscenes. Here´s the flow > >

Non-Western Shoot out: The Musical > A Mexican stand off with DJ Lonely (Jonas Ohllson), Dubcovsky (Friso Wiersum) and Chief Boima (Boima Tucker): DJ battle with context.

Chief Boima > > solo set by Sierra Leonean-American musician, DJ, cultural activist, and writer currently based in New York who combines a diverse array of global styles from Coupe Decale, Cumbia, Kuduro to Champeta.

We´ll play last from 1:00 til 3:00, expect a musical travel from the 60´s to current times with styles such as psychedelic Indonesian pop, Thai rock, Turkish garage n dubstep, Iranian technopop, Indian filmy songs, Saharan autotune, African electronic styles such as Coupé Décalé, Shangaan electro and much much more..

check here for more info on the night or FB event here.
