Fri 13 May > Rebel Up’s Duckfood @ EURABIA V @ INCUBATE,Tilburg


Eurabia V poster

Presented by ∆ Cairo Liberation Front ∆, with performances of:
Rebel Up! Soundclash

This dj-crew from Bruxelles/Rotterdam is well known for selecting the best global sounds from the underground; from African beats to Middle-Eastern house and from Turkish disco to Latino bass. Next to playing shows they’re pushing the best music from all over the globe by organizing parties in RecycleArt & OCCII, where they invite artists from all over the world.

Ramses3000 b2b Ray Fields

You might know Ramses3000 as the dj of Cairo Liberation Front, who started playing solo to show the audience what the world has got the offer besides electro-cha3bi. For this Eurabia night he invited friend and fellow towny Ray Fields to join him for an exclusive b2b-set. Expect a pumpin’ mix with the finest electronics combined with world music and Middle-Eastern jams.


These brothers from Eindhoven are the residents of Het Wild, their own club night where they invited artists like Flako, Kutmah & DJ Nigga-Fox. Next to organizing parties you could have seen them behind the decks at festivals like Mysteryland, BungalUp & Paaspop. After they played the last edition of Eurabia in EKKO, we know for sure; we had to ask them back.

Hosted by MC Holy Joseph

Coming Saturday we’ll be dj-ing some of our obscure, crooning, kitsch and swinging balkan tunes at the Le Grand Cirque du Balkan festival at Landbouwbelang in Maastricht (Zuid-Limburg!)

Expect to hear our paprika peppered sounds in the afternoon between bands and we’ll also play a more full global set at the end of the night.  The festival has no fixed entry price but just runs on voluntary donations from every visitor, so don’t forget to chip in!

wed. 29 june; Rebel Up dj at Shangaan electro night @ Worm, Rotterdam (at Heidegger)

hello boys and girls!

What an amazing sunny Amsterdam roots weekender we had, hope you were there!

This wednesday we’ll continue even deeper into bizarre global territories on this very special Shangaan electro night at the good WORM in Rotterdam (not in Delfshaven anymore, but right in the centre at Heidegger venue, real close to the station!).

The South African Shangaan electro music is not your average african sound; it’s a happy electronic marimba folk style from the north-eastern Limpopo region with beats that can go up to 180 bpm. Not for faintfeeted. Producer Richard Nozinja will provide these infectuous marimba speed beats accompanied by the surreal dance moves of the Tshe Tsha Boys and the polyphonic voices of Tiyiselani and Nkata Mawewe. Sure is gonna be a good one, not be missed; only show in NL!

Before & after, our Rebel Up! dj SebCat will play South African sounds with Brussels friends Darcyr & LeBlanc (Tupolev/Brussels Up) and Max Le Daron. Hear this fresh Shangaan mix by Darcyr & LeBlanc, just uploaded!

and see here some Tshe Tsha Boys moves, get practising yo! 🙂

Ursulinenstraat 25 Rue des Ursulines, Bxl

It’s about time for a steamy third Rebel Up! Soundclash night to give this Brussels winter some deserved sunshine! Expect a fully packed world trip in music where all borders are strictly taboo and in which the spirit of the global diaspora lives. A bit of acoustic ethnographics, a dose of innovative lo-fi & hi-fi electronics and a heavy dash of worldly kitsch. Or for the purists; Soukous, Afro funk, Soca, Roots, Balkan, Mestizo, Chaabi, Funana, Asiatic funk, Indian folkpop, Arabian techofolk, Global Bass & much more.

DJ Sebcat & Palm M of the nomadic Rebel Up! collective will serve up a tasty mishmash of sunny sound, while guest dj’s Brian Hainaut & Jean Mikili (Bal du Canal/BXL) will bring tropical tunes from the Brussels brousse that will make you shake, chouffé chouffé!

Rebel Up! is a not-for-profit collective that organises fundraiser nights for small charity organisations. Tonight’s funds will go to the Belgian/Rwandese humanitarian organisation Igitego Inyange ASBL who support education and healthcare projects in Rwandese villages.

During the night they will be selling specially prepared Rwandese snacks, yum yum! Come dance, taste & donate!
