Fri 30 June > Rebel Up @ Recyclart Holidays; Peruvian Night w/ Los Wemblers de Iquitos, Dengue Dengue Dengue, Shushupe & Cecilia Yzarra

This friday, heavy cumbia action at the start of Recyclart Holidays, a true Peruvian Night with almost a complete Peruvian lineup!  Tamos listo?

Chicha Amazonica & Peruvian bass!

Los Wemblers de Iquitos (PE)
The inventors of the Amazonian chicha cumbia, Los Wemblers are a group that started in the 70’s by a shoemaker/guitarist and his five sons in Iquitos, a city in the middle of the Amazon rainforest. This legendary group, especially rediscovered by Dengue Dengue Dengue, has just released a new EP in the spring and is exploring the Brussels bush. Selva-delic!

Dengue Dengue Dengue (PE)
The most psychedelic electronic duo of Lima, who behind their crazy masks and vibrant colorful visuals bring massive Peruvian electro bass! With a mix of digital future, cumbia, tropical bass, dancehall, chicha from the 70s, they are in constant motion and constantly release new sounds with influences allover. Expect a set bridging the gap between Latin America, Africa & the West. One thing is sure: they’ll fire up the Recyclart!

ShuShupe (PE)
The name of this female producer comes from one of the most venomous snakes in the Amazonian forest, makes its full sense on the dancefloor. She will inject toxic rhythms into your limbs and make the heat rise until you catch a tropical disease. Also she is part as activist of a growing LGTB scene and a woman on the forefront of the female Latin American electronic sound.

DJ’s SebCat & Cecilia Yzarra (Bxl/PE)
This Belgian & Peruvian duo will do the outdoor warmup with cumbia, chicha, boogaloo, guaracha, criolla and much more Vinyl only, with lots of vintage dusty discs. SebCat needs no introduction but Cecilia Yzarra is one of the few female dj’s from Peru, with an incredible selection of vintage vinyl.

Fri 22 July > Rebel Up! @ Recyclart Holidays party w/ Mabiisi, DJ Tetris, Munchi & Godwonder

13432219_10153850951005345_225271404206347998_nAkwaaba! hello Brussels!

This Friday 22 July, a seriously amazing party at Recyclart Holidays festival which Rebel Up! helps organising.
A Special lineup with artists from various southern countries > Ghana, Burkina Faso, Mexico, Dominican Republic & exotic Belgium.

Mabiisi (GH/ BF)
Mabiisi means “brothers of the same mother” both Frafra of northern Ghana and in Mooré language of the Mossi people of central Burkina Faso. The association of rural and urban music from both cultures (Ghanaian kologo music and African hip hop) was the desire of the Burkinabe social critical rapper Art Melody, which has now been fulfilled. He went into the studio with famous Ghanaian kologospeler Stevo Atambire and the catchy result testifies to natural intuition and chemistry between these two experienced musicians. The Akwaaba Music label from Ghana released the record and arranged a first tour of this duo with steamy stop at Recyclart!

DJ Tetris (MX)
from Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca state, Tetris has been around for quite some time in the national Mexican ‘tribal Guarachero and electro tribal’ scene originated in the northern city of Monterrey and characterized by a mix of cumbia, pre-Columbian rhythms and electronic beats and melodies of flute, accordion, guitar and later, synthesizers. With his distinct style, which exercised a mix of tribal Guarachero and Mexican fanfare, mariachi and nortena, Tetris found shelter at the N.A.A.F.I collective and label (alongside Lao, Siete Catorce, Mexican Jihad, Fausto Bahia …) from the capital DF, famous for their special events and situations that celebrate street and club culture. Tetris’ eclectic and ultradanceable first album ‘Costeno’ came out on N.A.A.F.I in 2014.

Munchi & Godwonder (DO/NL)
From Mexico we fly through the US, over the Dominican Republic to Rotterdam and Amsterdam for two party creators and producers of big format: Munchi and Godwonder. Munchi harvested much success a few years ago with genre-defining productions and DJ sets in its own typical style, stairs, moombahton, reggaeton, cumbia and baile funk fusions to solid dancefloor bombs. At its peak, which brought him to Diplo and Azalea Banks whose money he turned down, as he retired disillusioned from “the music business” to continue working in silence to his mission: continue to make music and help other young people with musical talent from the Dutch-Caribbean diaspora to develop their musical talents. He founded his own label Selegna records and now releases steady new work of himself and of others, such as Godwonder, who for the occasion joined the ranks for the presentation of a Dominican-Dutch sound that mixes gabba and bubbling with tarraxo, reggaeton and dembow. Munchi will undoubtedly surprise you with a whole new set of dirty latino trap, hypnotic merengue, sensual bachata and heavy moombahton.
