Friday 23 Nov > Rebel Up @ concert night in BRASS w/ Los Orioles + Spiritczualic Enhancement Center, Bxl

Concert night on friday in BRASS cultural centre in Forest.
2 bands on the programme and 2 dj’s!

Los Orioles (CH)
Like a gang roaming the world, the seven Swiss musicians of Los Orioles seem to have used wherever they went: the cumbia in Colombia, the dub in Jamaica, the rhythms and the guitars of West Africa, but also the most alternative whimsical francophone songs (we think of the Brigitte Fontaine / Areski Belkacem duo). Sung, rapped or declaimed lyrics that wander in an endless reverb amidst a precious selection of grooves from around the world.

Spiritczualic Enhancement Center (DE/IS)

In their physical form, their existence lasted only two weeks, confined in an abandoned Ottoman building, at the foot of the walls of ancient Jerusalem. Today in exile, the Spiritczualic Enhancement Center is a free-beat resonance field, an evolving and eclectic set of different cities and countries – they prefer the term ‘international’.
In concert, four to ten musicians play a strange and ritual instrumental music, based on spontaneity and improvisation. After a series of concerts at the Fusion Festival (Germany), Outernational Days (Bucharest) and at the New Hamburg Festival, as well as in various concert venues in Europe, they have just announced three upcoming releases: ‘Transporting Salt’ on the American label Crash Symbols; ‘Who Corrupted Our Wave, Back in 1969?’ on the post-Babylonian label Kinship; and a vinyl, ‘Me and My Students Have Reached Higher Levels’ on the Paris label Akuphone, scheduled for early 2019.

Guacamayo Tropical (CO / Madrid)
The Colombian duo Guacamayo have been taking all the afrolatin flavour in their suitcase, spreading the sweaty love in their wild Guacamayo Tropical parties in Madrid and their Festival Guacamayo in the mountains near Madrid. Their sessions are characterized by the integration of organic musical instruments such as Colombian gaita, tamboras and djembe, and even typical and native dances switched up with digital beats. Also, they explore new sounds created from traditional roots with a slightly digital edge. Hearty, lively rhythms and flood the crowd with a colorful wave of love, joy and Cumbia! Inspired by earthly ancestral trips, they show us a path, an idea and a project aimed at challenging the senses on all fronts, shooting out sounds explosively charged with good vibes, light and hope.

Mr Orange (Lowup, Bxl)

His musical universe is broader then broadway and he’s also active as a sound designer for theater and film. In his more informal playing moments he’s also known as Carrot or El sñr Naranja. Groovy tropicalism with a pinch of the unexpected and some tongue-in-cheek humour. Good music is timeless.

Sat 19 March > Rebel Up! Soundclash night @ Beursschouwburg Bxl

Rebel Up 19 maart

this saturday 19th we organise a special Rebel Up! Sounclash night in the Brussels Beursschouwburg.
a global underground night with live sets and dj sets of ethnic beats through digital folklore, dub and psychedelia.

X.A.Cute (DE) presents Shards
Founded in the early noughties in Berlin, X.A.Cute has been active in different shapes and styles, but the roots always remained the same: dub and hip hop, spiced up with whatever caught the attention of core members, DJs and producers Wuzi Khan and Freak Ass E. Over the years X.A.Cute has recorded and played with artists as (among others) Mike Ladd, Miss Red, Mark Stewart, Infinite Livez, The Shadowhuntaz, Guillermo E. Brown, and Ari Up, with releases on labels as Echo Beach, Moniker Eggplant, Anorakism and Meerkat Recordings. In Summer 2014 MPC-wizzard Guvibosh joined the line-up after moving from Jerusalem to Berlin, adding his russian percussion and a selection of bass heavy beats to the mix. After playing a number of successful club and festival gigs this combination resulted in the digital relase “Shards”. A mirror of the current live-show, it features a storm of samples and scales selected from records and musical cultures around the world, grounded by bass heavy riddims and a subtle dub treatment, including an (authorized) version of Mark Stewart & The Maffia’s “Liberty City” and one of the (nowadays) rare vocal performance from Wuzi Khan. No computers were used on stage or while recording, with about 50% of sequenced beats from the trusted Korg electribe, and 50% of the songs freely tapped in real time and space.
Wuzi Khan: Electribe, Dr. Sample, FX, vocals
Guvibosh: MPS, Kaoss FX
Freak Ass E: EMU Sampler, MIcrokorg, FX, cowbell

Guess What (FR/UK)
Spearheaded by the alter ego’s Luke Warmcop and Graham Mushnik, this duo specializes in obscure metaphysical music and global soundtracks with electronic organs, synthesizers, melodica and electronics that take you through Russia, the Middle East and the 70’s *Giallo* cinema of Italy. Their most recent LP “Al Khawarizmi” is an amazing homage to the 8th century Arabic astronomer Al Khawarizmi who invented algebra and studied the solar system. It’s filled with Middle Eastern, Persian, Indo-Pakistani and Northern African psychedelic grooves from the 60’s and 70’s, belly dance beats enhanced by modern drum sequencing, samples and synthesizers. Expect a heavy dose of eastern psychedelics that will make your mind and body swirl into a higher state.

Joxaren (SE)
David Giese aka Joxaren is a Swedish musician with a background in Punk/Dub/Hip Hop/ Electro. Deejaying since the mid-nineties, Joxaren has been focusing on hybrids and intersections of musical styles and fitting it into his peculiar bouncy Skweee sound. Relentlessly hoovering the remotest stitches of the www for the best Tallava wedding jams, trading the latest Manele compilations from the local Romanian beggar on the corner, searching through Egyptian pop charts and of course adding all the news from his fellow Scandinavian Skweee-makers, Joxaren finds ingredients for his motley blend of sounds.

Rebel Up! DJ’s (Bxl)
hosts of the night and no secret to the global underground nightlife in Brussels, organising many different concert & dance nights in venues such as Recyclart, Bonnefooi and Les Ateliers Claus. These dj’s are true selectors, remixers and digital diggers, always looking for that special global beat hidden away from the mainstream ‘world’ music. From the latest electronic beats to traditional folklore, there is a place for all of these in their colourful dj sets. Select global, play local!
