2 NEW releases on Rebel Up Records; V/A – Mamari Remix compilation & Satanique Samba Trio – Mini Bad

New releases out this month of September!

Various Artists – Mamari Remixed
13 remixes between global electronic beats, afrohouse, bass and more….

The remix compilation ‘Mamari Remixed’ is the little electronic sibling of the album ‘Mamari’ by Muito Kaballa Power Ensemble. 13 producers from Africa, Europe and Latin America give their own spin on the original songs by making them ready for the dancefloor. All producers combine 19 different nationalities and show their ability to make bass music that stays true to the organic sound. The remixes not only use the original instruments but also manage to convey the political messages from the Power Ensemble.

Jan Janzen (keys) and Niklas Mündemann (saxophone) of Muito Kaballa are also DJs and enthusiasts of the underground clubbing scene. With ‘Mamari Remixed’ the two musicians want to create bridges between the worlds of “live music” and “club music”. Remixed included are by Nuno Beats (RS Produçoes), Catu Diosis (Nyege Nyege), Lee Bass (Gato Preto), Lua Preta, ARN4L2, DJ Satelite & PolBack, DJ Flavya, DJ Makala, BYDLY, Quixosis, 115 Solaris, Ekiti Sound and Rafael Aragon.

The countries represented on this compilation are Portugal, Uganda, Poland, Angola, Cabo Verde, Germany, Ghana, Colombia, Brazil, US, Spain, Netherlands, Ecuador, Belgium, Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria, UK, France, Uruguay and Algeria. 

A limited edition vinyl pre-order as active as well, delivery is expected 15 december.

Satanique Samba Trio – Mini Bad
B sides from the Brazil’s experimental jazz underground.

From 2004 to 2020, Satanique Samba Trio has dropped 11! records into phonographic existence. Naturally, some compositions from the quintet’s (not really a trio indeed) catalogue didn’t make onto any album for one reason or another. ‘Mini Bad’ is a remedy for this situation, as it amasses 10 tracks that were almost part of albums like “Bad Trip Simulator #3” (2013), “Xenossamba” (2017) and “Forrivel” (2020). You can call it B-sides from B-razil, if you dare.

There is also a very limited edition 10″ vinyl, only available in Brazil. Check the bandcamp for more info.

New release on Rebel Up Records 27.05 > Schroothoop – Klein Gevaarlijk Afval (pre-order vinyl now)

hey all,

New release coming up on Rebel Up Records this wednesday 27.05
the debut mini album Klein Gevaarlijk Afval by Brussels world jazz trio schroothoop.

mysterious world jazz with DIY instruments

Brussels-based trio schroothoop (Dutch for ‘junk yard’)
is formed by Rik Staelens (wind & string instruments), Timo Vantyghem (bass & clarinet) and Margo Maex (percussion).
Their tribal oriented debut mini-album titled ‘Klein Gevaarlijk Afval’ (Small Dangerous Waste) features homemade instruments built from lost and found objects like scrap wood, old metal or anything that would end up in a landfill. The band’s music is infused with sounds from around the world orchestrated by PVC flute melodies, jerry can beats and washtub bass lines.

Mysterious world jazz with Northern African chaabi, South American reggaeton, Eastern oriental melodies and Afro-Cuban rhythms, resulting in a danceable and hypnotic trip through the Brussels melting pot.

Post production and mixed by David ‘Dijf’ Sanders and mastered by Jürgen de Blonde (KOHN).

Artwork by Eva Lynen on screen-printed on cardboard covers in the studio of the Brussels collective Hashët. Limited to 15 handmade vinyl copies only. Sold out already, but end of June we expect a proper vinyl release of the album in bigger numbers. Available digital on our Bandcamp, as well as the official vinyl pre-order at discounted price for 1 week.

Thu 5 Sept > Rebel Up & Friends @ Kiosk Radio + Tropikal Masala w/ Rafael Aragon & DJ Anacaona, Bonnefooi, Bxl

This thursday >>

Rebel Up & Friends session at Kiosk Radio, with special guest LuzAlta (AR) for 2 hours of global sounds from 16h to 18h. Tune in on the livestream via their website or via the stream on Rebel Up FB page.

Then in the night @ Bonnefooi
1st Tropikal Masala party, hosted by Rafael Aragon.

with special guest DJ Anacaona and Rebel Up SebCat support.

The infamous party Tropikal Masala, which has been shaking Paris underground nightlife a few years back, bringing together the then emerging Cumbia / Tropical scene with relatively unknown musical genres from the “Orient”, punjabi Bhangra, middle-eastern Dabke or north-african Chaabi and Amazigh sounds…

Hailing from the early venezuelian rave scene, dj and tattoo artist ANACAONA brings you the fire from the Carribean with her top-notch vinyl selection. Expect rare gems from the Afro-cuban traditions, Guaguanco, Boogaloo, Son, Guaracha, as well as the most obscure psychedelia from latinamerican 60’s, 70’s & 80’s. Deep-rooted Orishas invocations meet bizarre, early electronic music experiments and some new-wave and acid bursts. Resident of the Fania Brava party in Berlin, this discrete & experimented music lover and selecta has made quite an impression at this year’s Fusion Festival, with two amazing sets at some of the festival’s legendary stages.
