Also in the basement of Les Halles St Gery, Poppunt will be hosting various talks on music and production. From 15h30 – 16h30, Rebel Up SebCat will moderate a talk titled The Emergence Of New Electronic Music Scenes Around The Globe, with special guests Arlen Dilsizian (Nyege Tapes), Amine Metani (Shouka), Sofyann Ben Youssef (Ammar 808) and Rrita Jashari (VK Concerts).

Afro house, cumbia dub, Maghreb techno, Durban based GQOM. The last few years have witnessed an atmospheric rise of new electronic music genres, movements and scenes from all across the globe. Which cultural shifts are driving these changes? Who are the key players pushing these scenes forward? Arguably even more important: which new music should you definitely not be missing out on?

Limited places have all gone (free registration), but perhaps you can still squeeze in there if reservations have been cancelled.

and the cherry on the cake of all this > > >

Our Rebel Up curated global sounds night for Listen Festival with Ammar 808 (live), Susobrino (live), Gan Gah & Rebel Up DJ’s @ VK Concerts.

Listen Festival, Rebel Up & VK concerts join forces for a global sounds night in the heart of Molenbeek at the historic VK Concerts venue. The night will take you on a global round trip with a multicultural lineup consisting of some of Belgium’s current top crop, between live acts and DJs. The international Northern African band AMMAR 808 عمّار brings berber folk styles together with heavy electronics and pounding bass for futuristic rituals. To complement the line-up, a live performance by Susobrino and his shamanic-inspired electro-acoustic Amazonian sounds, followed by global beat & bouncy bass DJ sets by GAN GAH (current artist in residence at VK) and the Rebel Up crew.

See you there, if you dare!
