Couleur Café might be on this weekend in Brussels, but it’s a not so interesting edition and already finishing around midnight. So it’s time for some rougher world colours in a global dancehall and bass style for a real tropical party till the early morning light! Hosted by the all-female Tropical Boobs crew from Brussels, known from their wild global bass nights, in collaboration with Rebel Up! and Silver Canary. Expect everything from roots dancehall to cumbia, afro styles, folkloric beats, baile funk, trap and bass by these artists & crews >
Maga Bo (BR) & MC Teba (SA); ethnic bass & global dancehall
We’re proud to announce 2 special international guests on our night. Globetrotting producer Maga Bo hails from Rio de Janeiro and is one of the godfathers of the ‘global bass’ sound before the name had even been invented, having worked with artists from all around Africa and Latin America. His recent 2012 album *Quilombo do Future* features a modern Brazilian sound where he merged regional Afro folkloric styles from the Nordeste together with modern electronic dancehall beats, a true futuristic melting pot for the global dancefloor! MC Teba from Cape Town, South Africa, will perform duties on the mic during Maga Bo’s live set. Yep, be warned; it’s gonna be hot, steamy and wild.
Silver Canary crew + MC´s > straight up roots
The Silver Canary is a Brussel based Soundsystem consisting of a international crew of dj´s and singers who organise roots nights in Matongé and other venues allover the city. The Canary brings you a deadly cocktail of underground Caribbean-Jamaican music to quench you thirst to dance. Everything from rocksteady up to raggamuffin!
Rebel Up! dj´s > tropical bounce & cumbia bass
Since 2010, the Rebel Up! crew organises not-for-profit Soundclash parties in Brussels as fundraisers for small NGO´s. These rebels dive into many different local music styles from all around the world, whether it be ethnic, urban or a mash of folk, pop and contemporary electronic dance music. On this night their global sound will be all things uptempo bass & tropical.
