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! http://www.mixcloud.com/Rebel_Uppa/https://soundcloud.com/rebeluppa

This Dutch dj duo has brought ‘electro chaabi’, the new electronic dance music from the Cairo hoods, to Europe and the rest of the world.
