In the aftermath of the Black Lives Matter protests in June allover the globe, followed by a summer with or without holidays, it’s important to keep the flame burning and the discussion going. The road is still long, but united we stand, moving forward together.
The aim of this compilation is to raise funds for various (inter)national NGO’s, anti-rasicm advocacy groups and organisations of black initiative, with all proceedings to be donated to these causes. (Look in press info for full list of carefully selected organiations)
The artists donated their music as a collaboration between Rebel Up Records, the artists and the international labels Nyege Tapes, Syrphe, Bongo Joe Records, Sdban Records, Galletas Calientes, Blanc Manioc, Indigenous Underground, Strut, Earconditioning and 1000Hz Records. On this compilation we brought together mostly electronic African or Afro descendant artists from the worldwide diaspora and artists based in their homelands, from motherland Africa to Latin America to the Caribbean and back to Europe. It’s a vibrant combination of contemporary sounds that showcases the current talent of the artists and producers, combined with awareness for black lives & art and serving as a fundraiser. You can find a list of the supported organisations on the last page. Also info on each of the artists and their Bandcamp pages are included in the notes.
As this compilation is an ongoing process, it’s possible that the tracklist can still grow with a few extra songs in the next weeks. Please support & buy this compilation, let the internal fire burn on.
for Listen Festival we compiled this 3 hour globe-trotting genre-crossing Rebel Up playlist with sounds from every corner of the earth. The perfect way to satisfy your summer wanderlust in these odd times. Listen! to it here 👉 lstn.be/RebelUpSummer

It doesn’t matter if it has grown under contaminated illegal waste dump land or if we are talking about the Prip’jat country side. After a short pause, involved in different musical projects, Muluni has decided to take control of his music writing and in April 2019 released his first soloist composition “Mi vida es un pollo fritto” produced by Golden Catrame: – https://goldencatrame1.bandcamp.com/album/mi-vida-es-un-pollo-fritto – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDcO1Ew7_88
