*Arabstazy*
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 c
ollective 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.

Mettani
the guru of the Arabstazy collective. His live performances are inspired by North African healing rituals, and make the link between mystical and animist possession trance. His sound is dark and organic, mixing odd polyrhythms with vibrant melodies. He invites you to explore the flip side of your soul. Coming from the noise rock scene, he uses his voice as raw material with which he sculpts his sound aided by various electronic and analogue instruments.

Deena Abdelwahed
Works hard to inject a dose of innovation and experimentation into electronic music in Tunisia. Part of the Tunisian alternative scene, she combines urban rhythms to her personal taste and brings highly energetic avant-garde music that is regarded as the future of Tunisian electronic music. In 2014, she was discovered by the collective Arabstazy and ever since she has become the prophetess.

Tropikal Camel
Born in Jerusalem and where he grew up, Roi Assayag has lived in Berlin since 2013. His new project is the musical exploration of his own Arab roots. 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.

Rebel Up! DJ’s
resident DJ’s of the Nightshop parties. Tonite they will explore the past & future of the Northern African & Arab world in full sound, warming up & closing down.

hiya,

tropical boobs

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!

Sat. 26 Jan > Rebel Up! Sebcat dj set @ Int. Film Festival Rotterdam – eclectic Mind The Gap night in WORM w/ Marcus Fjellström (SE), Felix Kubin (DE), Deadbeat (CA) & Lowriders crew (NL)

hello folks,

this saturday in the heart of Rotterdam, Rebel Up! Sebcat will be playing during the musical programme of the International Film Festival Rotterdam. Dutch underground music magazine Gonzo (circus) is curating the night under the eclectic *Mind the Gap* theme and with a fine line-up of international artists;

Marcus Fjellström
Is a Swedish composer who plays neo-classical electronica and dark ambient for labels such as Miasmah. He also makes special animation movies about the cartoonish characters Odboy & Erordog and will perform these clips with his sounds.

Felix Kubin & Martha Colburn
The sound of this peculiar fella from the Hamburg underground always amazes and he always operates outside the boundaries of genres; from weird go go pop to super crazy electro fun, anything goes! Martha Colburn will join him with her strong visuals that intertwine heavy social issue, such as bloodthirsty dictators, paranoid crystal meth junkies, corrupt police and whatnot. Kubin & Colburn already worked together on the clip Big Bug Attack -below- This new set surely will be ‘aussergewöhnlich’.

Big Bug Attack- Music by Felix Kubin from Martha Colburn on Vimeo.

Deadbeat
is the moniker of Scott Monteith, a Canadian-but-living-in-Berlin, the best place for someone who makes one of the best deep dub-techno at the moment. Deadbeat’s pulsating sound is right at home in Rotterdam true the gritty industrial and architecture-scaped feel of the city. Artist and geography seldom form such a unity as it will be on this night. Slowdancing is on!

Lowriders crew
These R’dam homeboys will close off the night with a heavy stew of dubby spheres of all things grime, step, trap and tech to make you move.

various Gonzo (circus) dj’s will play eclectic sounds in the bar downstairs, for all your listening or dancing pleasure.

Rebel Up! Sebcat is playing upstairs in the big room as part of the Gonzo (circus) crew and will play eclectic warmup sets inbetween the artists and some finetuned Rebel Up! global dance n bass sounds from the tropics and urban spheres later into the night.

Should be great night indeed, hope to see you there!
