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.
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. https://soundcloud.com/ana-pe-afiel-marcano
