〰🔅〰 Nuri 〰🔅〰
Nuri is an established name on the Tunisian underground scene, where, as drummer, he has been a part of numerous alternative music projects. Also DJ, he is an impeccable selector and a skilled navigator in the universe of beats and sounds, wrapping traditional and world rhythms in a club house clothing.
Nuri has released his first album “Drup” on Shouka in August 2017.

〰🔅〰 Rebel Up SebCat 〰🔅〰
In the Brussels global scene, Rebel Up has become a household name through their party nights of contemporary *world* music and electronic ethnic sounds in Recyclart, Bonnefooi, BSB, La Tentation, Les Ateliers Claus and many other places. SebCat is a fulltime musical nexus: he hosts the Nightshop radio show on Radio Campus Bxl, curator of countless Bxl parties & nights and he runs a DIY vinyl distro with the better global sounds.

Philippe Nullens aka Le Grand Méchant Loop is world beats DJ and percussionist. He will take us on a surprising journey, spiced up with live percussions, where the genuine sounds of kologo, zurna, ferrinho and gwoka blend to create the kind of groove that can only be explained on a dancefloor!

CONCERTS POUR La Grande Ouverture
Gratuit !

Chicos y Mendez 20:00
Concert alter-latino
This musical group was born from the meeting of two songwriters, two musicians with varied influences but complementary talents. One of Brussels from Peruvian origin (David Méndez Yépez), the other native Liégeois (Thibault Quinet aka “Tito”). The result of this meeting: a true music of sharing, this one releases emotions beyond the terrestrial and linguistic borders.

Sun 14 Jan: Rebel Up @ Het Nieuwe Programmeren: Netwerkevent Global Sounds, Ancienne Belgique, Bxl

This sunday 14/01, a special network event in Ancienne Belgique, curated by Dutch/Belgian magazine Gonzo (circus) and DeBuren.

Global Sounds: another buzzword or just the key to attract a more diverse audience? And what are Global Sounds? And does an African band attract an African audience by definition? Programmers struggle with it, sometimes make radical choices or lose their course. For those who open the gate, it is an adventurous trip. By trial and error. It is an introduction to new actors from the field, new partners and a search for new audiences.

Together with Gonzo (circus) and deBuren, concert hall AB invites you to immerse yourself in The New Programming and Global Sounds one afternoon! with keynotes and discussions.

Our Rebel Up SebCat will be in a panel to discuss about new ways of programming global sounds in Belgium & Netherlands, together with our friend Rrita Jashari (VK Concerts), Marriette Groot (Underbelly media) and Kurt Overbergh (AB).

It’s free in but sadly the event is already full, and there is a waiting list.
Afterwards there is a concert of Indonesian ethno-noise band Senyawa as part of Europalia Indonesia.

Sat 6 Jan: Club Méditerranéen curated by Rebel Up ! w/ Tropikal Camel & Rafael Aragon @ Le Sucre, Lyon (FR)

a night curated by Rebel Up @ Le Sucre club, Lyon, rooftop culture & club!

A rich musical heritage and community, the territory of the Mediterranean is a breeding ground in which many new artists find their inspiration. East and West have never been so close when the sounds of Tunis, Istanbul or Cairo and the electronic diaspora seize electronics to revisit and transform their oriental influences.

For this first Club Méditerranéen night of the year, we can expect electro-Arab sets of rough and hypnotizing sounds by Rebel Up SebCat, Tropikal Camel and Rafael Aragon.

▬▬▬▬▬▬ LINE-UP ▬▬▬▬▬▬

» Tropikal Camel (Shouka / Jerusalem/Berlin)
Behind the ironically exotic alias of Tropikal Camel lies Roi Assaya, producer and MC from Jerusalem. He adopted this artist’s name when he moved to Berlin in 2013 and began a musical and political approach. As a true cultural archivist, he collects traditional music from North Africa and the Middle East, then recomposes these polyrhythms on Ableton, precipitates them in a future bass climate and “shamanic sound textures”.

» Rafael Aragon (Babylon Records / Global Hybrid / Paris/Bxl – FR/AL)
Rafael Aragón is a DJ / producer whose roots extend into Arab and Latin cultures, growing up in the Parisian suburbs in a cosmopolitan world that has shaped it. He started producing beats at the age of 20, obsessed by the idea of mixing folk music with more electronic patterns and creating a balance between organic and synthetic.

» Rebel Up SebCat (Rebel Up / Bruxelles – BE)
SebCat breaks the boundaries to represent youth and socio-political developments from around the world, through cosmopolitan music of the diaspora merged with (inter)local traditions.

Fri 15 dec > Rebel Up @ Akuphone 2 year birthday, Le Chinois, Paris (FR)

Akuphone birthday party > 2 years and already 10 releases: from Japanese mambo to Sri Lankan pop, Taiwanese psyche, through Laotian synthpop, Balinese gamelans, Tibetan ritualism, Cambodian rock, etc., and without forgetting the signing of Ko Shin Moon!

Rebel Up is proud to be part of this amazing night, spinning a set during this special night in global club Le Chinois, Montrieul, greater Paris.

on the programme :
dj Samcha (L’Oreille Percée)
Ko Shin Moon live
dj Rebel Up SebCat
dj Cheb Gero (Akuphone)

Ko Shin Moon

* Analog synthesizers, drum Machines & Oriental lutes *
Mixing instrumental and digital compositions, contemporary electronic sounds, traditional music and samples from field recordings, Ko Shin Moon blurs all the boundaries. Soundtrack of a patchwork crossing, the first LP of the group, released on the label Akuphone, transports the listener to hybrid territories, fantasy soundscapes and colorful collages. The time of a break, reversing analogical listening in digital synthesis, this funny duo turns the listener into a dancer on an Algerian acid, an electric belly dance, the Greek psyche, the Turkish disco, the Lebanese trap , Thai dance or Lao shoegaze.

Samcha (L’Oreille Percée)
Samcha aka L’Oreille Percée collects, collects and, as far as possible, informs the musical media of Thailand, Indonesia, Japan or the Chinese diaspora with a singular detour for Cote d’Ivoire. Ethnologist in partnership with Khun Narin Sin Phin Prayuk during his extra-Asian excursions, this Pierced Ear seeks to trace an itinerary for the ear which, beyond the West, probes music publishing around the world. Listening to what others are listening to, without prejudging what they love, who they are, here is a program that it becomes, today more than ever, possible to achieve.

Cheb Gero
Passionate about music and incorrigible collector, Cheb Gero, clears and digs the musical worlds. In 2015, in an “archive” spirit and driven by a desire to “explore the world in music”, he launched Akuphone. In an approach related to musical archeology, he seeks to highlight the work of artists, musicians, singers and singers who, in the so-called Western countries, are unknown or have fallen into the oversight. Far from a romantic or fetishistic vision of non-Western music, the goal of the label is to articulate these cultural productions to their historical and political context and to restore them in their social and cultural conditions of appearance.

Rebel Up SebCat
No introduction needed, expect electro-arab tunes from the orient, the diaspora and beyond.
