NGHE Mediatheque & Rebel Up present a burning hot night of cumbia, afrolatin, dub, ancestral folklore, tropical beats and global bass > Fiesta!

Guacamayo Tropical (CO / Madrid)
The Colombian duo Guacamayo have been taking all the afrolatin flavour in their suitcase, spreading the sweaty love in their wild Guacamayo Tropical parties in Madrid and their Festival Guacamayo in the mountains near Madrid. Their sessions are characterized by the integration of organic musical instruments such as Colombian gaita, tamboras and djembe, and even typical and native dances switched up with digital beats. Also, they explore new sounds created from traditional roots with a slightly digital edge. Hearty, lively rhythms and flood the crowd with a colorful wave of love, joy and Cumbia! Inspired by earthly ancestral trips, they show us a path, an idea and a project aimed at challenging the senses on all fronts, shooting out sounds explosively charged with good vibes, light and hope.

The Silly Tang (UK/FR – Madrid)
The Silly Tang has been ripping parties for the last 5 years all accross the UK channel and into latino spheres. Playing alongside names such and Randall and J-Man in the Jungle music scene and rocking up some Gypsy Folk next to names such as Balkan Hotsteppers or Innamorati. He has now settled to live tangly in Madrid, Spain to start continue producing more delightful tangoloid sounds, between dub, cumbia and ancestral latino folklore. He has released dubby cumbia tunes on Andalucian label Caballito and on Chilean label Regional. Also he’s part of the La Selva crew known for their tropical sweaty sounds.

Rebel Up SebCat (Bxl)
The infamous Rebel Up! parties are no secret to the Brussels global underground, for over 10 years promoting new sounds where possible.

Mr Orange (Lowup, Bxl)
a Brussels based music aficionado and founder of both the infamous Los Hermanos Brothers and Lowup. His musical universe is broader then broadway and he’s also active as a sound designer for theater and film. In his more informal playing moments he’s also known as Carrot or El sñr Naranja. Groovy tropicalism with a pinch of the unexpected and some tongue-in-cheek humour. Good music is timeless.

Sat 27 Sept > Rebel Up! Soundclash @ Salle Rogier Bxl, w/ special guests Capitol K & Rafael Aragon

Rebel-Up_2013_12_A6_web-poster

From september onwards, we will have new Rebel Up! Soundclash resident night every 2 months at Salle Rogier hosted by SebCat & LeBlanc. Every time with special international guests to make it even more special for all of you, bringing new global sounds to Brussels!


To kick off our first party night at Salle Rogier, we invite two special international guests for a night of cumbiatronics, global bass & digital global folk pop > Capitol K and Rafael Aragon!

 

Capitol K (UK – live)
The wizard producer of the Total Refreshment Studios and band member of Archie Bronson Outfit (Domino Records) will be performing his latest release “Andean Dub”. A collection of Cumbia Psych and Lofi, born of K’s wanderings through South America. An inspirational, original mix of deep Andean cumbia bass, analogue synth textures, sparkling percussion and spaced out live charango playing. Just check his amazing electronic cumbia sound below!

 

Rafael Aragon (FR – dj/live)
Rafael Aragón aka Rafiralfiro has latin and arabic roots but was born and raised between downtown Paris and its multicultural suburbs. Rafael’s eclectic taste and versatile take on music production, got him obsessed with the idea of mixing traditional folk music with contemporary electronic club music, looking for the perfect balance between the organic and synthetic, the past and the future. Rafael Aragon’s music is mainly club oriented, with heavy basses, infectuous rhythms, yet delicate, well balanced and highly psychedelic. You better be warned!

 

Rebel Up! dj’s SebCat & Leblanc
As residents and hosts of the night, Sebcat & LeBlanc will warm up the night and keep it going till late. Expect as always a diverse and eclectic mix of tunes from around the world. Global bass, digital folk pop, any good beats from the global south, rooted in local traditions… Select global, play local!

 

Visuals all night by VJ Alerta (CL/NL)
Latin inspired visuals by this Chilean wonder girl, who colourfully mashes traditional and modern latin spheres together into a warm digital psychedelic experience for the eye.
