🌶🎵 GL🌎BAL UNDERGR🌎UND 🎵🌶

For this 7th musical night trip, we are very happy to welcome the shaman of global beats Rafael Aragon, who will hypnotize you with his secret and irresistible frequencies. Ofcourse hosted by Rebel Up SebCat and Le Grand Méchant Loop will move your bodies and souls through the wildest sounds from the global underground!

〰🔅〰 Rafael Aragon 〰🔅〰
The music of Rafael Aragon is cut for the dance floor, rich in bass but delicate, maximalist and highly psychedelic. With a touch of magic inspired by shamanic rites and Afro-Latin and Oriental folk traditions. Mystic chimes, tribal drums and voodoo manners respond to big kicks, hypnotic basslines and electronic batucadas.
With his many live and DJ sets in clubs, free parties and festivals all over Europe and South America, Rafael has made a name for himself as a producer, remixer and DJ on the electronic and world music scene with his powerful “global rave” sound.
