Thu 17 Dec > Rebel Up! SebCat @ Melting label night, Bonnefooi w/ Kognitif, IL:LO, Moderator & Beats & Culture

melting night
This thursday > >

Melting Records is a fresh independent record label from a team of music diggers from Greece and France. The label consists of people with different musical background and with a common passion for quality beats.

Kognitif (FR)
one of the most promising artists of the French underground hip hop scene, is visiting Brussels for one and only performance in Bonnefooi. His show will be a musical journey consisting of funky/jazzy beats to dark instrumental hip hop. His last album with Melting Records ‘My Space World’ (12’ vinyl) was a top seller in Berlin, Vienna, Brussels and Athens, while his latest album ‘Soul Food’ hits the top charts of Bandcamp.

Moderator (GR)
is a new talented Greek beatmaker with releases in the London based label Cult Classic Records. His last album ‘The World Within’ hit the top in charts of Bandcamp and fastly became the label’s top selling album. ‘The World Within’ is a trip from lounge-cinematic beats to all kinds of experimental hip hop styles.

il:lo (FR)
is a band consisted by 3 persons, 2 DJs and 1 trumpet player, releasing their music in the Belgium based label DLoaw & Co. They take their inspiration from their travels and take the names of their tracks from the towns they have visited. And so they came up with the title Places, a coming together of six destinations, six atmospheres: from the Italian village of Marta to call Imprenta in Granada. Il:lo’s sound is a blend of acoustic and synthetic melodies. Difficult to categorise, it could well be perceived as heavy as it is light, with its sombre bass lines as well as floaty brass tones.

Beats & Culture (GR)
is a YouTube channel owned by a Greek music digger promoting various styles of music such as Breaks, mashups, remix, hip hop, downbeat, jazz, swing, and tropical beats. He begun diggin beats-music back in 2008. His love in music can reach him listening reggae, dub, gypsy, klezmer and so goes on. Moreover, he is a member of the Greek-French record label called Melting Records.

Thu 19 Nov > Rebel Up! Soundclash & OCCII presents Baba Commandant & The Mandingo Band + DJ Alex Figueira @ OCCII, Amsterdam

0004675182_10

Yo folks!

This thursday 19 nov Baba Commandant & The Mandingo Band in OCCII, Amsterdam! His shows in Gent and Brussels were simply amazing, so we can recommend you to see them and get wild!

Baba Commandant and the Mandingo Band
are a contemporary group from Burkina Faso. Coming from Bobo-Dioulasso, the group is steeped in the Mandingue musical traditions of their ancestral legacy. The enigmatic lead singer Baba Commandant (Mamadou Sanou) is an original and eccentric character who is well respected in the Burkinabé musical community. A sort of punk Faso Dan Fani activist for traditional Mandingo music, Baba continues to redefine the boundaries between traditional and modern. In 1981, he joined the Koule Dafourou troupe as a dancer. Later, he embarked on his current musical direction as a singer first in Dounia and then in the Afromandingo Band. His current band — when he’s not playing with the now-famous Burkinabé musician Victor Démé — is the Mandingo Band. At present, he is a practitioner of the Afrobeat style, drawing inspiration from the golden era of Nigerian music. Fela Kuti/Africa 70 and King Sunny Adé are big influences, as is the legendary Malian growler Moussa Doumbia. Baba plays the ngoni, the instrument of the Donso (the traditional hunters in this region of Burkina Faso and Mali). His audience comprises multiple generations and strata of Burkinabé society; he accordingly adapts his repertoire to his surroundings, which range from cabaret Sundays in Bobo-Dioulasso to the sound systems of Ouagadougou and are a formidable force steeped in Ouagadougou’s DIY underground musical culture. Juguya is their sound. Listen here >

 

DJ Alex Figuira (Vintage Voudou shop / Fumaça Preta)
Amsterdam 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’s Red Light district, 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. For sure he’ll make you bounce & swing with his delicious selections from Africa & around.
