Sat 6 Dec > polyrhythmic dance night @ Salle Rogier Bxl Rebel Up! djs w/ Durian Brothers, High Wolf, Tav Exotic, Pizza Noise Mafia & Fyoelk

10440881_880215235352040_3206224592314889716_n
a long party night at Salle Rogier with experimental dance music, abstract techno, polyrhythmic, crooked acid etc.

THE DURIAN BROTHERS (DE)
//////polyrhythmic bounce loops \\\\\\
After their much welcomed live appearance at this year’s Petit Fays Festival, The Durian Brothers finally make it to Brussels! Assembled around the SALON DES AMATEURS club (Düsseldorf) a few years ago, playing prepared turntables, a sequencer and an array of effects, the trio blend polyrhythmic, Afro-beat inspired percussion with noise-saturated aspects of electronic minimalism. Dense and dance-oriented, this is music made for the live club setting, immediate and intense, but flows with an artistic and purposeful bent. After three EPs on Diskant, a split EP with Ensemble Skalectrik (an Ekoplekz side project) on FatCat Records, and a first Mini-LP “DAS MACHT MODERN” on swedish Kontra-Musik just recently, its time for a live-show, that ranges from click&cutting woody trance to dub-filled frenzy without missing a beat.

TAV EXOTIC (VZ/BE)
MIKEY “WEIRD DUST” CRABBé
ERNIE “BEAR BONES, LAY LOW” GONZáLEZ
//////Synth drenched acid mayhem with a noisy sauce \\\\\\

PIZZA NOISE MAFIA (FR/BE)
//////Funky minimal 6-step\\\\\\
An electronic duo composed of TG Gondard and Carrageenan. Their music is a cold and minimal funk, rhythmed by catchy acid analog modulations. A demonic war machine that will drench the most demanding dancefloors in sweat! This night will see the release of their first LP ‘i canti della malavita’ on the Slaaploos label!

FYOELK (DE) reveals the adventures by two legs of freeform acidic beat duo Laser Poodle, residing in Antwerp. His sound explorations have recently returned to the track format, utilizing MIDI technology. Driven by a love for the foundations of house music, polymorphous synth sequences and tribal percussion blend into sonic wormholes. Fyoelk runs the tape label Stenze Quo.

HIGH WOLF (FR) possesses a natural-born ability to zero in on the tones most conducive to inducing transcendental states. He will play a special live set of outerwordly psychedelic buzz beats with a rigid afro guitar vibe. Be there early to indulge yourselves into this!
