new Rebel Up Nightshop online (April) > #71 Quarantine show with 10 albums of the month!

This month’s Rebel Up Nightshop show (April 2020, via Radio Campus Bruxelles) is done in quarantine, home recorded as a big 2 hour mixtape with 10(!) albums of the month. Look out for some current candid COVID19 spoken word soundbites throughout the show as awareness or social political counteraction.

Starting with a psychedelic oriental tune by Baharat on Batov Records and followed by the new Ethiofunk-meets-dub album ‘Yene Mircha’ by Hailu Mergia on Awesome Tapes From Africa. After this, Argentinian outsider band Los Siquicos Literalenos and their experimental chamame folk sound out on Hive Mind Records and followed by the reissue of Peruvian Amazonian cumbia band Ranil Y Su Conjunto on Analog Africa, rare recordings from the 1970’s. We travel to Turkey via German Turkish migrant communities on the Uzelli Electro Saz compilation with psychedelic folk from 70’s & 80’s and followed by contemporary northern Greek folk music album by Evritiki Zygia on Teranga Beat label. Then we travel to Morocco, to the Master Musicians of Jajouka & Bachir Attar reissue on vinyl by Zehra label from a 1991 recording and we travel up into the Iberian peninsula for the compilation Codex Futura Vol.1 on Samain Music digital label with contemporary electronic folk music from Spain & Portugal. El Buho brings his new electronic latino album ‘Ramas’ on Wonderwheel label and we end the show in oriental electronic rave sounds via French duo Ko Shin Moon (‘Leila Nova’) on Akuphone and Palestinian duo Zenobia (‘Halak Halak’) on Crammed Discs.

Fri 13 Sept: Rebel Up Records evening, 10inch vinyl release Satanic Samba Trio (BR) @ Recyclart, Bxl

Satanique Samba Trio: it’s not really a trio and they don’t play samba but they are quite satanic…. this mythical Brazilian band from the capital Brasilia performs funny, pertinent and surprising sound collages, an ongoing investigation into the aesthetic deconstruction of Brazil’s most popular musical traditions.

Friday September 13th, 2019 will be remembered in Music History for the release of their new 10inch vinyl “Mais Bad”, a conceptual sequel of the 2015 release “Mó Bad”. “Mais Bad” is a new collection of low fidelity bagatelles, forged into existence by Satanique Samba Trio’s thirst for aesthetical deconstruction. All instruments in this 10-track vinyl have been recorded with the same cheap cell phone from the early 2000’s. It is meant to sound desperate, harsh and absolutely surreal. A little over the top, maybe? Yeah, but hey: that’s just how a country in crisis should look and sound like. Right?

Listen here to “Mais Bad” on our Bandcamp, and see new videoclip below, warning: graphic medical images 🙂
