Far from the current Ayatollah Oriental fashion, which flood us with Orientalist and post-colonial clichés, Arabstazy is the action that created its own movement. The collective was founded in 2013 by a handful of artists spread across Tunis, Paris and Berlin, they organize their independence by starting to organise their own parties and edit their tracks on their home label Shouka (*thorn* in Arabic). They establish unthinkable links between different pieces of the puzzle of the North African identity, moving smoothly to esoteric Sufi Stambeli possessions … Thus, in the hands of this young Franco-Tunisian collective the united spirit of North African trance is fully expressed. At their parties, eclectic artists such as SKNDR, Tropikal Camel, Wetrobots N3rdistan were all part of the amazing Project Chaos made in Tunis. True to their taste for dark superstitions, Friday the 13th they will tread the soil of BXL for the first time. They are missioned by their guru Mettani 滅, producer Deena Abdelwahed, female VJ Waf and shaman Tropikal Camel, who just released his 11th album on Shouka in K7 format.
A night for musical visionaries who want to explore Arabic electronic sounds, beyond Acid Arab.

From Kurdistan to Iraq, passing through Morocco, he takes us on the journey of conscience, through the limbo of his fragmented identity. Performer and MC extraordinary, his live sets are an experience that will leave you deeply transformed.
Wafa Benromdhan aka VJ WAF
Uses videos and photos to embody her thoughts, emotions and to translate questions. Driven by a desire to treat the idleness of sensible beings to create chronic heterotopias at her disposal, she gradually opens a creative future that puts the scenography at the center of her research. The visual soul of Arabstazy since its creation, she is also part of other projects such as Wafolyv and Planningtorock.
