This saturday 21 july, Rebel Up SebCat and Duckfood will split their musical forces to divide themselves over 2 festivals.
Rebel Up SebCat will spin at Welcome To The Village festival in the far north of Friesland near Leeuwarden, together with DJ Francesco, closing off the Blessum stage from 1 to 3 am. Be ready for some hot global sounds!
During the day, great bands & performers such as Mark Lanegan, Kuenta i Tambu, Romperayo, Kanipchen Fit and Yuri Landman will play.
and the same day, Rebel Up Duckfood will go to the northern outskirts of Utrecht for De Leuke festival in de Voorveldse Polder.
You can catch him at the Yallah Yallah stage, run by our buddy DJ Tommi and also with Ramses 3000 of Caïro Liberation Front and Pushin Wood playing at another stage. Be prepared for some heavy arabic sounds, from dakbe to chobi and electro chaabi!
Starting on saturday night, we will play @ Huna Hut in the small Plek venue >
Unmasking eclectic sounds from around the globe. We ask musicians & dj’s we like to travel the planet (and beyond) in search for cosmic sounds & halal beats that can make you dance or just fall in love with.
This dj-crew from Bruxelles/Rotterdam is well known for selecting the best global sounds from the underground; from African beats to Middle-Eastern house and from Turkish disco to Latino bass. Next to playing shows they’re pushing the best music from all over the globe by organizing parties in RecycleArt & OCCII, where they invite artists from all over the world.
You might know Ramses3000 as the dj of Cairo Liberation Front, who started playing solo to show the audience what the world has got the offer besides electro-cha3bi. For this Eurabia night he invited friend and fellow towny Ray Fields to join him for an exclusive b2b-set. Expect a pumpin’ mix with the finest electronics combined with world music and Middle-Eastern jams.
These brothers from Eindhoven are the residents of Het Wild, their own club night where they invited artists like Flako, Kutmah & DJ Nigga-Fox. Next to organizing parties you could have seen them behind the decks at festivals like Mysteryland, BungalUp & Paaspop. After they played the last edition of Eurabia in EKKO, we know for sure; we had to ask them back.
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.

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….
After last week’s amazing night with Konono No1, a fresh Soundclash night coming up @ OCCII again! It will be a special eastern/arabic theme night with mystical Sufi/Qawwali music from India, revolution electro Shabi sounds, dabke from the middle east and much much more!!!!
Ali Kawa Brothers & Qawwali Party (IN)
trancedental Sufi & Qawwali music by muscians from Rajasthan, near to the border with Pakistan. Their special sound is filled with mystical spheres and islamic healing power that takes your mind and body to a distant place. Expect some deep resonating vocals, strong tabla rhythms and hypnotic vibes. They will play around midnight, so don’t come late!
Caïro Liberation Front
something is brewing in the rougher neighbourhoods of Caïro; young producers are making new electronic music called electro shabi (or sha3i), a rough sound that combines dancehall influences with Egyptian techno folk with a heavy political undercurrent. CLF has collected the best dance tunes of all these new producers, so this calls for a revolution party, YALLA!
We are also joined by our buddy Process Rebel (US) who will play his dancehall selections with an eastern-arabic vibe.
As always, the Rebel Up! dj’s will fill the gaps with their own blend of global sounds, in this case only pure asian n arabic sounds from vintage and modern times.
