De Vechtclub & Rebel Up! Soundclash present an electropical night filled with the newest South American sounds. The sensual cumbia is back from the past and is scorching hot in Argentina at the moment, especially in the capital Buenos Aires. Since a few years a lot of young musicians have been combining old & villera cumbia’s with a heavy dubby bass, lots of bass! Now for the first time, a night full of these new sounds in Utrecht, better believe it! De Vechtclub is a new theatre/warehouse in Overvecht-Zuid, of which the interior is made from recycled materials and a mud wall! Cheap drinks, good vibes and an easy to reach location tucked away from residential area’s.
Expect digital dub and heavy bass with electronic cumbia, plus more rough global sounds!
