Chancha Via Circuito
One of the foremost exponents of Argentina’s digital cumbia scene, Pedro Canale aka Chancha Via Circuito has released 2 albums on Buenos Aires’ famed ZZK label and just released his 3rd album Amanasara on Brussels label Crammed Discs. Their blend of Argentinian folklore, Paraguayan harp and Andean mysticism, all processed through Pedro Canale’s own futuristic strain of electronic music, has garnered great reactions: the albums were hailed by Pitchfork and the New York Times, among others, and Chancha was enlisted for remix work by Gilles Peterson and Gotan Project. Expect a set of dubby cumbia and minimal electronic folk spheres straight from the Andes!


Muevelo! (Grandpamini & Pedrolito)
This Chilean/ Argentinian duo runs the famous Parisian Muevelo parties and are the top of the cream of new latino bass sounds from the americas. Some years ago Grandpamini already made Brussels sweat at a Nightshop party in the Recyclart and we’re happy to invite him again to play his own fun edits of reggaeton beats and tropical bass. mas perreo, mas perreo! Pedrolito is his sidekick at Muevelo and runs a saboroso radio show for Groovalizacion radio. Expect a heavy suave mix of villera street cumbia, tropical bass and dancehall.


Hosted by 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!

Oyé! *CUMBIA DANCEHALL Fiesta* @ Bouillon Kube
a night of cumbia & dancehall flowing together in one strong Afrolatino sound, connecting the Caribbean isles to the Latin continent without borders.


The Bouillon Kube is an old Galician restaurant which in olden days was also used as a resting place by pilgrims who travelled the Camino de Santiago. Now it has been turned into a global cultural spot for the St Gilles neighbourbood, where the focus is put on southern music, arts, poetry and film. They operate as a non-profit place where prices are fair, with drinks are much cheaper than elsewhere in town and so we make it a cheap night for all!

Silver Canary crew + MC´s > straight up roots
The Silver Canary is a Brussel based Soundsystem consisting of a international crew of dj´s and singers who organise roots nights in Matongé and other venues allover the city.

Since 2010, the Rebel Up! crew organises not-for-profit Soundclash parties in Brussels as fundraisers for small NGO´s. These rebels dive into many different local music styles from all around the world, whether it be ethnic, urban or a fusion of folk, pop and contemporary electronic dance music. On this night the sound will be all things uptempo Caribbean & streetstyle latino bass.

Chico Parany (AR) > cumbia & latino bass
