Free entrance

and that’s not all > also on wednesday night, Rebel Up also helps organising a psychedelic cumbia concert of Swiss band Los Orioles in Rue de la Senne.

Los Orioles reload traditionnal tropical music with their own fresh touch of afrobeat and dub breaks. This super hot septet from Biel/Bienne (CH) was initiated by Adrien Guerne in 2013 and is fronted by swiss garage rock legend Dany Digler. They deliver continuous waves of shaking licks and tremolo screams that surf over a groovy and rock-solid cumbia base. Their show offers a sweaty and endless transe of bouncing latin beats washed in a weird and freaky reverbed sci-fi soundscape. Don’t forget your space goggl”es, get your hips implants fixed and go Baila La Cumbia all night long !

Fri 3 Feb > Rebel Up! & Global Hybrid present: Tribal Tropical @ Kumiko (ex-Bravo), Bxl FREE IN!

a new Bxl basement party in town, free in!
*****deep tropical sounds from the global underground*****
hosted by Rebel Up! Soundclash & Global Hybrid Records

@ Kumiko Izakaya (ex-Bravo bar)

Get ready to immerse yourself into modern ethnic spheres, be taken to imaginary places, dance, sweat, smile and cry, we are all one tribe.

Originator of the Rebel Up! DJ collective, their infamous parties are no secret to the Brussels global underground and beyond. Always bringing the freshest and bounciest global sounds, from ethnic electronic bass to digital folklore, it’s all there to hear and feel. Tune in to radio show Rebel Up Nightshop on Radio Campus Bxl & Radio Groovalizacion. Select global, play local!

Alizarina *LIVE*
From a techno kick to a melodic clarinet, Alizarina mixes different influences: Techno, Klezmer, Gypsy and Balkan beats… Fruit of travels and a strongly developed curiosity, his music will take you on a modern trip through his special Ethno-Techno Tzigane sound. Just a few months ago, he released his debut album ‘Melodic Blossoms’ on Global Hybrid, an album that sublimely bridges tradition with the modern.

TOHM (Fanfara Electronica)
One of the originators of Global Hybrid crew that host many amazingly wild parties in Brussels and part of the Fanfara Electronica. His playground is a free and liberated mix of the electronic universe and world music. Tohm brings deep tribal sounds, a spirit for the freedom of wild electronic celebrations, ethnic sounds to dancefloor with a kicking beat!

Rafael Aragon
Birthday boy Rafael also joins us! His obsessive curiosity has him digging through everything from latin beats to oriental melodies, unearthing unique samples that he (re)mixes, twists and polishes with a watchmaker’s precision. Rafael’s music is demanding but light-hearted, intelligent but down to earth, and overcomes musical language barriers with its lack of stylistic limitations.


20h – 2h30 @ Kumiko Izakaya (ex-Bravo)
Rue de Alost / Aalststraat 7, 1000 Bxl
