Next Friday, experimental concert evening at Recyclart with drones, rough guitar sounds and Pan Afrabic immigrant spheres.
*** My Cat Is An Alien is the musical brainchild of Italian brothers Maurizio and Roberto Opalio, whose sound is packed with many forms of experimentalia. Their concerts are always very unpredictable and exciting as if being shamanistic rituals. Before (1998-2012) they used mostly guitars and toy instruments to articulate thier musical idiome. At the end of last year, they suddenly changed their approach to focus on self-made snare instruments and dissected electronic devices to give their musical universe a new sound. This new beginning has been documented on the double LP ‘Art Is A Tear Of Noise And Infinite Silence’, released on Discrepant records in october 2012. This will be their first Belgian show in this new sound.
Rough Americana is the fertile collaboration between the couple Morgan Craft and Giulia Lolli (DJ Mutamassik) and sometimes their 9 year old son Meroe. This duo plays an array of rough improvised music styles of modern times. The ‘Afro-American Viking’ Craft and the Italo-Egyptian roots of Mutamassik will supply musical influences from Memphis, Tennessee to Memphis, Egypte. Mutamassik is one of the pioneers of the Sa’aidi hardcore sound and expert in what she calls ‘Pan-Afrabic Immigrant sounds’. From her speakers she will fire afro-mediterranian hiphop as well as baladi breakbeats, brotherly next to more noisy and drone-like collages. Both worked with musical personalities such as Marc Ribot, Butch Morris, Ikue Mori, Hamid Drake and Kaffe Matthews and take their own unique place within the contemporary musical landscape.
this Friday our good female friends from Nantes-annex-Bruxelles are organising their first Tropical Boobs party @ le Metro Valdi -yes, they named it that in female self-sexist power stylee- a night filled with global bass sounds, juke, trap, dubstep, italo disco and whatnot @ Metro Valdi (15 Rue des Poissonniers) Bxl city centre near Beurs/Bourse.
Rebel Up! dj’s Sebcat & Leblanc will be spinning a heavy selection of global tunes. Leblanc will go deep into Africa with fast urban kuduro, kwaito house and some streetwise Mexican sonidero cumbia, while Sebcat will turn to Caribbean ways with the newest and roughest Karnival sounds from Haiti, Brazilian tecnomelody swing and some tecnofolk tunes from Syria & Egypt.
Joined by guest dj’s from Nantes DJ FI$H€RPRIC€ & $TRAPONTIN and Brussels immigrants RICO MEDEIROS (DRACHE MUSICAL/BXL) and VJ FLANDERS. Gonna be a hot night!
