We’ve just put a new mixtape online at Mixcloud, Arab Street Sounds as recorded live outside at the Arabic party we did last Friday at Recyclart (see previous post). It’s up for listening or even to download in 320 kbps! Check it out, yallah!
enjoying the summer so far? only will get better, like this friday…
This Friday a very special Rebel Up! concept party night @ Recyclart with popular dance music (chaabi) from Morocco, Egypt, Syria and beyond, with 2 Moroccan live bands and dj’s that play the latest ‘shabby’ beats from the casbah. As it is also Ramadan, we’ll serve sweet mint tea too! And yeah, we can tell you that this will be the wildest party of the summer 🙂
We’ll start dj-ing outside on the square at 22:00 for 1 hour, then at 23:00 the music and concerts will be inside the venue, just 5€ euro’s in.
here’s the roll down of the times & artists >
*OUTSIDE* 22:00 > 23:00 REBEL UP! dj’s (BE)

*INSIDE* 23:00 > 00:00 REBEL UP! dj’s (BE)
2nd part of their set.
00:00 > 01:00 HAKIM BOUANANI TRIO (MA/BE – live)
Hakim is a Moroccan violin player, composer and arranger who worked with the Antwerp band Think Of One for their album Camping Chaabi, an exploration of Moroccan popular dance music, chaabi. Hakim will play different Moroccan styles in trio (violin, synth, voice).
01:00 > 02:30 ORCHESTRE ROUANY (MA/FR – live)
This French-Moroccan five piece band around singer/violin player Younes Rouany is a hard hitting chaabi dance machine. Their sound is based on oriental synths, darbouka, bendir, violin and electronic drums.
02:30 > 04:00 CAIRO LIBERATION FRONT (NL)
This Dutch dj duo has brought ‘electro chaabi’, the new electronic dance music from the Cairo hoods, to Europe and the rest of the world. It’s tough bass music from the rougher neighbourhoods, made by young producers on computers and based on auto-tuned vocals and frenetic oriental rhythms drenched in dancehall and rave sounds. You will sweat, as if you were on an alcohol free wedding party, high on sugar, hash and loud music!
04:00 > 05:00 REBEL UP! dj’s (BE)
Arabic roughness to end the night with….
