New release on Rebel Up Records 27.05 > Schroothoop – Klein Gevaarlijk Afval (pre-order vinyl now)

hey all,

New release coming up on Rebel Up Records this wednesday 27.05
the debut mini album Klein Gevaarlijk Afval by Brussels world jazz trio schroothoop.

mysterious world jazz with DIY instruments

Brussels-based trio schroothoop (Dutch for ‘junk yard’)
is formed by Rik Staelens (wind & string instruments), Timo Vantyghem (bass & clarinet) and Margo Maex (percussion).
Their tribal oriented debut mini-album titled ‘Klein Gevaarlijk Afval’ (Small Dangerous Waste) features homemade instruments built from lost and found objects like scrap wood, old metal or anything that would end up in a landfill. The band’s music is infused with sounds from around the world orchestrated by PVC flute melodies, jerry can beats and washtub bass lines.

Mysterious world jazz with Northern African chaabi, South American reggaeton, Eastern oriental melodies and Afro-Cuban rhythms, resulting in a danceable and hypnotic trip through the Brussels melting pot.

Post production and mixed by David ‘Dijf’ Sanders and mastered by Jürgen de Blonde (KOHN).

Artwork by Eva Lynen on screen-printed on cardboard covers in the studio of the Brussels collective Hashët. Limited to 15 handmade vinyl copies only. Sold out already, but end of June we expect a proper vinyl release of the album in bigger numbers. Available digital on our Bandcamp, as well as the official vinyl pre-order at discounted price for 1 week.

Fri 13 Dec: Rebel Up @ Giraffes & Penguins, KulturA, Liege

Oh yes, time again for a Giraffes & Penguins weekender in Liege + Brussels.

Starting on friday the 13th (woohoo!) in Liege at the amazing KulturA club.
Arab Bass night with special guest Ghoula from Tunisia and Liege guest Cedric Blavier. hosted by Rebel Up, Le Grand Mechant Loop & Tropical DJipsies.

We’ll dive together into the infinite richness of arab music and its evolution from traditional forms to the most contemporary and wild electronic sounds.

Ghoula (TN/FR)
Ghoula is a tunisian self-made musician and producer. In Tunisia, music has been a generational vehicle for popular symbols, images and myths. Despite its small size, Ghoula sees his native country as a north African crossroad where legacies came to settle. As a producer and multi-instrumentalist, Ghoula creates genre-defying sets through both acoustics and samples. Obsessed with North African multimedia heritage, Ghoula has been digging up vinyls from flea markets and old Tunisian medinas, bringing back vestiges of forgotten music cooked on top of contemporary upbeat dance rhythms. His album Hlib el Ghoula was released on the Shouka label and he is now preparing his second album.

Cédric Blavier (Liege)
A music lover, digger and dj, Cédric Blavier makes his weapons in his native Belgium, between Liège and Brussels. Amateur of ultra-dancing ethnic music as well as planing electro downtempo, he succeeds in surprising sets to combine the effective and the experimental, the organic and the synthetic, the modern and the traditional. His musical synthesis meets a growing success in the world of electronic music, with notably appearances noticed in the festivals Nuits Sonores, Chateau Perché (France) or Taka Tuka (Hungary)!
