Sadly, this is our LAST EVER party night at De Vinger, as it soon will be closed and demolished, what a shame 🙁
We will be joined by our new Rebel Up! member DJ DUCKFOOD who will Heat Up the dancefloor for you to freely run, jive, and just dance for the hell of it. As usual, expect a fine Rebel Up! mix of old and gritty tunes with newer weirder than ever music from all around the globe: Calypso, Soukouss, Cumbia, Desert tunes and other genres in the making.
The entrance fee should be 3€ but it can also be more if you feel like helping out this bar De Vinger which as always intended to be just an open stage for young and less young local and international artists. Just providing what has become a rarity in Den Haag : a venue for alternative music.
Back in business for this new year full of promises. At least this next Saturday we’ll make sure you’ll be grooving at Cafe De Vinger. Hot music are welcome in these times and Christmas has been kind on new sound collecting. Get ready for mashing tunes from all around the world. This time the benefit will go to activity project for Brazilian street kids.
SebCat & Palm M will be happy to see you there, with colourful sounds & visuals. FB event here >
Brazilian NGO Tiaozinho
During the next 3 months, a sports project for children and adolescents in one of the Sao Paulo favela’s will be organised. The aim is to stimulate social skills, values like team spirit, playing together and fairplay so that the youths can make positive decisions in their future life, but the main goal simply is to just have fun and enjoy themselves. Sports that will feature are football, volleyball & circus techniques and some other activities. Also friendly tournaments will be organised for the children as an end goal to all their sports training and with an incentive for them to invite their family into their playing environment as part of the social process. For this project, they need to raise money to buy sports equipment (balls, nets, clothing etc) and to cover other costs. www.tiaozinho.org.br
Rebel Up! Soundclash in Den Haag Sat. 11th of January @ Cafe De Vinger
Starts at 21.00
Entrance fee : 3 euro (free entrance before 22.30)
Bagijnestraat 25 (small street right next to the Stadhuis/Bibliotheek building in Spui)
yeah, it’s no hoax or joke; Rebel Up! is divided in three equal parts to go and play at 3 parties on the same night, at the same time!
This never happened before, so it’s a funny fact to remember. so hope you can choose the party closest and to your liking 😉
first up, our special fundraiser night @ de Vinger in Den Haag, where we will have the mighty awesome Orchestre du Mont-Plaistant (FR/UK) playing their global funk and jazz psychedelica. The night will be hosted by Rebel Up! Palm M who will bring on his best heat 🙂
You’ll get to jive on this four-guy combo from London. They bring back a bit of soundtrack psychedelia from the 60’s and 70’s, with them you’ll also get into some nifty African and Latino sounds. Rebel Up! DJs will wrap it all up to let you bounce some more.
Benefits at the entrance will go for a great cause, the Stahili Foundation, fighting to give a normal life for Kenyan orphans. So every extra cent is worth it.
Then at the same moment, Rebel Up! Leblanc will be fronting @ de Charlatan in Gent at the Unhail & Trillers night by Klanxong Nights. Expect a good dose of cumbia, tribal, electro afro beats, kwaito house, turkish folk, maroccan chaabi and chaoui, global bass, trap and much more! The line up further includes a good flurry of dj’s; Thom ∆ DJ-set (Alt-J) , TLP, Latomski and Biggy & Smalls.
and finally, also at the same moment but in Greenwich mean time; Rebel Up! SebCat will be spinning global sounds @ the Canteen in Bristol during the Wormex night. Main band of the night is Bengali-Cuban-British afrolatindian outfit Lokkhi Terra, hosted by Wormfood. Our busy man SebCat will replace Kosta Kostov who could not make it and will do his best to replace him well.
It’s free in, so lucky you if you are in Bristol!
We’re back from Russia where we had incredible gigs in St Petersburg and Moscow along with The Ex, De Kift and Skip and Die. Plenty of memories and slight hangover but Den Haag hasn’t heard from us for too long and that’s why we’re ready to let Cafe De Vinger tremble again from the various vibes we’re aiming at you. For those who like vintage Afro and Latino sounds come early to show your best moves, the ones who like rougher bassy beats will be delighted to hear DJ Mataklap is coming to deliver his long time experienced mixes, it can be New Wave Cumbia, Moombah as well as Reggada or Shangaan… If you don’t know what that means, come and find out for yourself, your heartbeats will do the rest.
Special guest of the night is Agga resident Mataklap (ex-Bomb Diggy), who since this year rides other global soundwaves to surely to make folks shake. Rebel Up! residents Palm M and SebCat will take up the flame to keep the night burning with swinging global styles.
As always your entrance fee shall go towards a good cause. Profits of the night will go to an orphanage project in Indonesia. This summer, Mataklap spent some time helping out at the Saewa Dharma Children’s Home in Pakisan, Bali. This home takes care of children whose parents are unable to do so. This is mostly due to poverty. Apart from providing these children a home and food, Saewa Dharma focuses on building spiritual strength, an appreciation of morality and education. The children all go to school when they’re old enough, and at the home itself they receive additional lessons in Yoga and English language. They are also frequently exposed to foreign cultures by volunteers from overseas. The home itself maintains an intimate atmosphere, with three volunteers who care for the children round the clock. They rely completely on donations, mostly from the immediate community itself, as well as various donations from different sources.
Time is Up to put on your shiniest shoes and prepare to move your legs in all kinds of directions,
On Saturday, the 4th of May Rebel Up! is back in Café De Vingerin The Hague to honor the return of the Sun (and the King, why not?) and deliver as usual our fittest sound from the global underground.
The deal is simple as usual, we ask you just a bit of money to help for one last time our friends from the Kenyan ONG Watoto Wa Baraka (more info available on www.africanorphanage.org) and in exchange we guaranty to keep you dancing, smiling, mingling with fun people and just have a good time, like in a good friends party. It will groove for sure with Up and Down tempo from Africa, mashing guitars from Sahara, Brass bands from around the Mediterranean coasts and many rhythms from Brazil, Argentina y Columbia and the Caribbean. We’ll go crescendo to let you go in trance into heavy bass lines towards the end of our show.
Rebel Up! is going to soundclash again on Friday 22nd of February at De Vinger in Den Haag.
The idea is as usual to deliver a musical trip through time and space, to let you wander in all continents with a ricochet on some islands. We intend to provide you with a good time in an open and friendly atmosphere. All that with a slice of consciousness involved with all benefits at the entrance dedicated for a great association called Watoto Wa Baraka. They are actually working hard on developing care centers and orphanages in rural Kenya (more info available on www.africanorphanage.org).
As for musical matters, our DJ crew will be made out of 3 identities, ready and willing to clash along for your pleasure. SebCat, Palm M & DuckFood are bringing their music boxes from Rotterdam, Brussels and Den Haag. Our soundscape will mostly cross through African rough club rhythms and intricate roots, up to South American and Caribbean old and new dancefloor scenes. Surprises will come from the Middle East also. Mostly looking for rarities plus unexpected mixes and mashups, for one purpose only, put a smile in your face, close your eyes and let your body go with the flow.
