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.

They are not satanic, they just make God cry.
They don’t play samba, they decompose samba.
They are not a trio, they are a quintet.
So definitely, they are Satanique Samba Trio!
Imagine Tom Zé without vocals!! Or Captain Beefheart in a Brazilian mood!!!

SATANIC SAMBA TRIO was founded in 2002 with the sole purpose of posing as an idiosyncratic force on Brazilian Music landscape (hence, the reference to the word “Satan”, a derivation of the Hebrew expression shaitan, which in turn can be translated as “the adversary” or “stray”). Two years later, the quintet – not actually a trio – released their debut EP, MISANTROPICALIA.
In 2007, the band unearthed the critically acclaimed LP SANGROU, which led its way into Concerts on Brazilian Soil that also featured names as big as Tom Zé and Naná Vasconcelos. After a 3 year-long recording hiatus, as they toured around Brazil (big country, you know the drill), BAD TRIP SIMULATOR #2 was released with undeniable success. The “putrefaction trilogy” had just started: BAD TRIP SIMULATOR #1 from 2011 (yep, one year AFTER #2) and BAD TRIP SIMULATOR #3 (2013) would eventually follow the conceptual path of decay. By the earlier months of 2014, the band put together a digital compilation called BADTRIPTYCH (Far Out Recordings – UK) intended to lump up the “catchier” songs from the aforemented trilogy. Still in the wake of a creative spike, the quintet (remember: not a trio) released a 7-inch (45 RPM) vinyl record called MÓ BAD on 2015. Now they might be hitting your shores.
If you ever wanted to know how traditional brazilian music would sound if it went absolutely bonkers, Satanique Samba Trio is the fastest and coolest way find it out.

hiya folks!

affiche-miniboom_web

Couleur Café might be on this weekend in Brussels, but it’s a not so interesting edition and already finishing around midnight. So it’s time for some rougher world colours in a global dancehall and bass style for a real tropical party till the early morning light! Hosted by the all-female Tropical Boobs crew from Brussels, known from their wild global bass nights, in collaboration with Rebel Up! and Silver Canary. Expect everything from roots dancehall to cumbia, afro styles, folkloric beats, baile funk, trap and bass by these artists & crews >

Maga Bo (BR) & MC Teba (SA); ethnic bass & global dancehall
We’re proud to announce 2 special international guests on our night. Globetrotting producer Maga Bo hails from Rio de Janeiro and is one of the godfathers of the ‘global bass’ sound before the name had even been invented, having worked with artists from all around Africa and Latin America. His recent 2012 album *Quilombo do Future* features a modern Brazilian sound where he merged regional Afro folkloric styles from the Nordeste together with modern electronic dancehall beats, a true futuristic melting pot for the global dancefloor! MC Teba from Cape Town, South Africa, will perform duties on the mic during Maga Bo’s live set. Yep, be warned; it’s gonna be hot, steamy and wild.
