► Clubedochorodebruxelas
Created in August 2016, the Clube do Choro de Bruxelas plays the Brazilian instrumental music, o Choro! This music was born in Rio in the 19th century, result of the encounter between the music of European dances (polca, mazurka, quadrille, waltz …) and African rhythms imported by slaves (lundu, maxixe …). Still played and studied today in Brazil, and always more developed i, other countries, the Choro, as to its origins, is enriched with multiple influences (jazz, other popular music …).

They are not satanic, they just make God cry.
They don’t play samba, they decompose samba.
They are not a trio, they are a quintet.
So definitely, they are Satanique Samba Trio!
Imagine Tom Zé without vocals!! Or Captain Beefheart in a Brazilian mood!!!

SATANIC SAMBA TRIO was founded in 2002 with the sole purpose of posing as an idiosyncratic force on Brazilian Music landscape (hence, the reference to the word “Satan”, a derivation of the Hebrew expression shaitan, which in turn can be translated as “the adversary” or “stray”). Two years later, the quintet – not actually a trio – released their debut EP, MISANTROPICALIA.
In 2007, the band unearthed the critically acclaimed LP SANGROU, which led its way into Concerts on Brazilian Soil that also featured names as big as Tom Zé and Naná Vasconcelos. After a 3 year-long recording hiatus, as they toured around Brazil (big country, you know the drill), BAD TRIP SIMULATOR #2 was released with undeniable success. The “putrefaction trilogy” had just started: BAD TRIP SIMULATOR #1 from 2011 (yep, one year AFTER #2) and BAD TRIP SIMULATOR #3 (2013) would eventually follow the conceptual path of decay. By the earlier months of 2014, the band put together a digital compilation called BADTRIPTYCH (Far Out Recordings – UK) intended to lump up the “catchier” songs from the aforemented trilogy. Still in the wake of a creative spike, the quintet (remember: not a trio) released a 7-inch (45 RPM) vinyl record called MÓ BAD on 2015. Now they might be hitting your shores.
If you ever wanted to know how traditional brazilian music would sound if it went absolutely bonkers, Satanique Samba Trio is the fastest and coolest way find it out.

Ok, call it winter denial, but we won’t be shivering in our badly insulated homes. Dance with us n this friday the 13th to feverish cumbia, funk carioca, juke, afrotronics & other hot tropical global bass at this Pantropical party!

 

▨ DJ PINCHADO (argentina)
One of our favorite DJ’s from below the equator! Pinchado is a specialist excavator of the finest cumbia and other tropical gems from the vaults of half-molten record jungles across Latin America. He edits these into fun lo-fi mixes, either slowed down (rebajadas) or lovingly left intact to be spinned in clubs around the globe. Pinchado is closely tied to Holland’s own Dick El Demasiado, who released on Pinchado’s own Silbando Discos (next to the flamboyant Peruvian singer and hairdresser La Tigresa del Oriente).

▨ DJ LEBLANC (bruxelles | Rebel Up!, nightshop)
This man from is beyond a shadow of doubt one of the most pleasantly obsessed and knowledgeable purveyors of Non-western, tropical music for the Benelux. Together with Sebcat he’s the co-curator for many great tropical events in Bruxelles (Salle Rogier, Bonnefooi, Recyclart, etc.), and co-hosts the Nightshop radioshow for Radio Campus. Despite the sheer dizzying number of subgenre styles Leblanc uses for his unique DJ mixes, they’re always super focused, tight and highly dancable. Leblanc’s set will include digital cumbia, global bass & afrotronics.

▨ DØG (brazil)
DØG exists in multiple spaces simultaneously, raised in global suburbs, based in digital realms, sometimes visual other times musical. DØG divides his time between geeking out with A/V installations (as ‘ehCaetano’), and über-dancable DJ sessions as one of DØG’s multiple incarnations. This night he’ll serve up a high-octane mix of funk carioca, ghetto house, afro, and juke, with a pinch of tecnomelody and lambada. Heavy beats from the west suburbs of the planet.
