This thursday, a last minute Rebel Up Soundclash @ OCCII with a very special guest from Mali > > >
LUKA PRUDUCTIONS (Mali / Sahel Sounds)
Luka Guindo, rapper, producer, and multi-instrumentalist and one of the most sought after producers of contemporary Malian Hip Hop. Working from a small bedroom sized studio alongside a busy street in the Malian capital city, Luka has built a reputation as one of the most prodigious beatmakers. Working with artists such as Supreme talent show, Ami Yerewolo, Iba One, van baxy and Sidiki Diabaté, Luka productions officiel is a household name in Bamako’s Hip Hop scene. New age music from West Africa. Lush and hypnotic dreamscapes combine traditional instrumentation with sweeping electronics, field recordings, and soothing affirmations. Bamako based composer Luka Productions delves into avant-griot, transforming ancient music into the 21st century. The songs are meditative and sage, as voices guide the listener through ways of living, from the village life to the modern world. Inspired from early electronic music, library records, and new age, this is easily one of the most left field recordings to ever come out of Mali.
RebelUp SebCat says; “amazing subtle album of afro-electronic moods, between the city & the bush. Modern Malian music from the young generation like you never heard…”
Thanks all you Utrecht folks for coming to our previous Rebel Up! cumbia party in sept.
It was a great success with a good global vibe! Up to another global dance night @ Vechtclub!
This night will have a much different sound than last time’s cumbia clash. Expect to get some fresh baile funk electro & tecnobrega live action from Brasil and shaking afrobeat funk and hiphop from Tanzania & Kenya!
João Brasil hails from Rio de Janeiro, but lives in London since a few months. He plays live electronically sampled music from Brasil; baile funk (Rio style hiphop electro), tecnobrega (dancepop from Brasil do Norte) and cut up ‘montagems’ of various Brazilian styles.
