Sat 13 May > Oyé Cumbia Dancehall with special guests Equiknoxx (Jamaica) @ All In One Bar, Bxl

Equiknoxx are one of the weirdest, most innovative dancehall squads from Jamaica right now.
 
Easily identified by the squawking bird idents peppering their cuts, Equiknoxx productions have been big in the dance since Gavin Blair a.k.a. Gavsborg produced Busy Signal’s billboard hit Step Out in 2005, followed by key instrumentals for Beenie Man, Aidonia, Masicka, and T.O.K.

Their new album Bird Sound Power arguably marks up the most striking riddim album you’ll hear in 2017, weighted with the potential to open up perceptions of current dancehall thanks to the mad character and broad reference points of its producers, encompassing King Jammy’s foundational digi-dub and Dave Kelly’s Mad House sound as much as rugged New York hip hop and the wigged-out, feminine pressure of Virginia Beach’s Timbaland or The Neptunes.

monday 23 Feb > Konono No1 @ OCCII, A’dam!!!! Rebel Up! support + djs Andy Moor + De Boer (The Ex)

This monday 23 Feb in OCCII, Amsterdammie!!!!!!!!!!

Konono N°1’s “Congotronics” album introduced the world to the strange and spectacular electro-traditional mixtures which are being concocted in the suburbs of Kinshasa, Congo. World music, electronica and avant-rock aficionados have all been equally amazed by this otherworldly music, which has driven the international press to come up with some surprising comparisons (from Can and Krautrock to Jimi Hendrix, Lee Perry and proto-techno!…).
The band was founded back in the 1960s by Mingiedi, a virtuoso of the likembé (a traditional instrument sometimes called “sanza” or “thumb piano”, consisting of metal rods attached to a resonator). The band’s line-up includes three electric likembés (bass, medium and treble), equipped with hand-made microphones built from magnets salvaged from old car parts, and plugged into amplifiers. There’s also a rhythm section which uses traditional as well as makeshift percussion (pans, pots and car parts), three singers, three dancers and a sound system featuring these famous megaphones.

here a link to a 50 year old Konono no1 recording!!!! (uploaded by producer Vincent Kenis)

support by Rebel Up dj’s + dj Andy Moor & De Boer (The Ex)

OCCII THIS EVENT IS FULLY BOOKED. 50 PLACES WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR ON THE EVENING OF THE CONCERT.

Sun 8 Feb > Konono No1 & Rebel Up! SebCat @ Neue Heimat, Fhain Berlin

KONONO-NO-1_flyer_a5_x2
Great concert of Konono No1, organised by our friends of Planet Rock and we are honoured to have one of our Rebel Up! dj’s doing the warming up & afterparty.

The members of Konono n°1 come from an area which sits right across the border between Congo and Angola. Founded over 40 years ago in Kinshasa, their repertoire draws largely on Bazombo trance music, to which they’ve had to incorporate the originally-unwanted distortions of their sound system: an impressive array of home made (and home modified) instruments. Their music is as unique as their tools – the mighty noises and distortions produced by their unique setup has taken their take on traditional Bazombo trance music to outer space.

DJ of the night will be DJ SebCat (Rebel Up! Soundclash) from Brussels with a special Congolese selection!
