Yo Bxl, 2 party nights in a row, summer style 🙂

on thursday, our Rebel Up Soundclash night in the Bonnefooi with 2 special guests. expect a night from electro cumbia to oriental beats, electro and beyond!

Electromanteca (CL)
This Chilean producer, DJ, and musician based in Buenos Aires (AR) with more than 10 years of focused musical creations (including a love affair with Digital Cumbia). His musical repertoire includes beats like hip-hop, global bass, and electronica mixed with tropical samplers. He founded the Perrera Cultural collective and has been the host of innovative parties in Buenos Aires – such as Boiler Roof and Peput! Currently, he is developing his first EP Nuevacumbiacción, a two-sided release with his own sound on side A and mashups on side B. His unique musical genius inspires and energizes souls worldwide as he journeys across the globe.

Lt.Dan (IL)
His love for music goes way back to his hometown Jerusalem, from making mixtapes to his parents’ parties when he was 10 years old, through working in “The Ear Way” music shop, where he acquired perspective, passion & fine ear for unusual sounds – from jazz, post punk, wave, classic & even pop. This wonderful house of music forged Dan’s sensitivity for esthetic sound and quenched his constant curiosity for new / old school music. After making his name in Tel Aviv with Legotek crew and many party concepts, he moved to the electronic mecca of Berlin, where he led the DonnersDucks party in Ritter Butzke for a few years. He regularly spins his sounds around Europe in cities like Hamburg, Milano, Warsaw, Prague, Vienna, Copenhagen, Paris & Barcelona to name a few, spreading his open minded music world to various dancefloors.

Sat 15 july > Festa Afro Tuga #3 @ Barlok, Bxl, with Celeste Mariposa & LiloCox

Afro Tuga #3, Afro Portugese style, muito quente /+
after the very succesfull 1st & 2nd Festa Afro Tuga organised by Rebel Up & the NGHE Mediatheque, it’s time for #3, in the Barlok venue this time.

Celeste Mariposa (PT)
Wilson Vilares started out in the techno scene but the powerful music of the African ex-Portuguese colonies lured him in and he became a true connoisseur of the Luso-African music diaspora from Angola & Cabo Verde, Guinee Bissau, Sao Tomé and further. Last year a label under the same name, releasing talented Luso-African artists living in Lisboa such as Chalo Correia, Julinho da Concertina (both in Recyclart last 2 years) and next week in Recyclart with band Conjunto Contratempo > Holidays: Conjunto Contratempo / Celeste Maripose +Extras ! !. Expect wild funana, funky coladeira, shaking semba, rebita and much much more!

LiloCox (Principe Discos label, PT)
Once more we invite one of the young producer talents of the Lisboa label Principe Discos. LiloCox has been part of the Principe family since the early beginnings, supported by the scene’s godfathers Nervoso, Marfox and Nigga Fox. Together with Firmeza and Maboku, LiloCox is part of the Os P.D.D.G crew (Piqueno DJ’s Do Guetto / Little DJ’s from the ghetto), formed out of admiration for their elders and their sound. A sound that was followed through by these young kids from the rough Quinta do Mocho neighbourhood, not far from Lisbon airport’s main runway. Expect batida’s, kuduro, deep sexy house, traditional African melodies (evocative Funaná accordions), epic horns calling to a love battle on the dancefloor.

Rebel Up Gato Seb (Bxl)
The only non-Portuguese on the bill as local Bxl support. Part of the Brussels global crew Rebel Up!, which needs no introduction for those who know their underground global nights. Expect some hot warming up in Luso African spheres, from vintage sounds to contemporary LX beats.
