Saturday 27th of November: Rebel Up! Soundclash with Awesome Tapes From Africa & Process Rebel @ OCCII

Hey all,

As winter slowly approaches our northern hemisphere, Rebel Up! brings you a fresh harvest of all the warmest sounds our sonic biotope has to offer on either side of the equator.

This month’s edition will feature a special DJ set from Brooklyn’s Brian Shimkovitz a.k.a. Awesome Tapes From Africa. After researching the local hip-hop movement in Ghana he’s accumulated hundreds of cassette tapes of rare African music from Zimbabwe to Ethiopia to Senegal. He has been sharing his bounty through his immensely popular blog, and now on the road as a DJ.  Expect a highly explosive and danceable trip to the amazing music cultures of an entire continent!

Also from the US is Process Rebel with his nextstep fusion of bass music that traverses the electronic music diaspora with a lean towards dub, dubstep, post-dancehall and global ghetto tech.

Our nomad Rebel Up! DJs and VJ will follow a varied audiovisual trail, trespassing the borders between musical genres by bringing together elements from the furthest terrestrial realms and digital corners into an ethnopsychedelic potpourri that is as rooted in tribal sensibilities as it is in the labyrinthine urban jungles of the information age.

Since we almost didn’t collect any money for the good cause last time, the charity for this edition will again be Stichting Mopti, an organization active in the poorest parts of rural Mali. With its gardening and horticulture projects for women, Mopti aims to support basic subsistence needs independent of market fluctuations and promote the self-organization of women. More info can be found on their website:
