Thu 7 June, Rebel Up & Friends session w/ Bleepolar (CO) @ Kiosk Radio, Bxl

yes, another Rebel Up & Friends livestream session at Brussels Kiosk Radio, in Parc Royal.

For this session we invited Colombian producer/remixer Bleepolar, one of the most interesting ethnic electronic producers of Bogota! He’s been reinventing afro-colombian rythms such as Cumbia and Champeta with a subtle and classy touch by fusioning it with house music, african techno and dancehall elements. It’s his first time touring in Europe and we’re thrilled to have him.

Our session will run from 16 to 18h, starting with SebCat and Bleepolar straight after.
Tune in on the livestream, or follow the Rebel Up FB page.

Next day on friday 8 june, Bleepolar will perform live at the Deep Tribal South America Special party night by our friends of Global Hybrid in Zodiak Club with a real nice South American lineup. For all info see FB event. Don’t miss out.

Sun 2 Apr > *Uproot* book presentation by Jace Clayton / DJ Rupture @ NGHE Mediatheque, Bxl

On Sunday > book presentation & world music 2.0 tunes
*Uproot: Travels in 21st- Century Music and Digital Culture* by Jace Clayton aka DJ Rupture.

In 2001 Jace Clayton was an unknown DJ who recorded a three-turntable, sixty-minute mix and put it online to share with friends. Within weeks, Gold Teeth Thief became an international calling card, whisking Clayton away to play a nightclub in Zagreb, a gallery in Osaka, a former brothel in Sao Paolo and the American Museum of Natural History. Just as the music world made its fitful, uncertain transition from analog to digital, Clayton found himself on the front lines of creative upheavals of art production in the twenty-first century globalized world, where he coined the term *world music 2.0*.

Uproot is a guided tour of this newly-opened cultural space. With humor, insight, and expertise, Clayton illuminates the connections between a Congolese hotel band and the indie-rock scene, Mexican rodeo teens and Israeli techno, and Whitney Houston and the robotic voices in rural Moroccan song, and offers an unparalleled understanding of music in the digital age. With the help of musical examples and video’s, Clayton will present his book to make your musical world hell of a lot richer.

His book Uproot: Travels in 21st Century Music and Digital Culture was published in 2016 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux.

Jace Clayton is an artist and writer based in Manhattan, also known for his work as Dj Rupture. Clayton uses an interdisciplinary approach to focus on how sound, memory, and public space interact, with an emphasis on low-income communities and the global South.

As DJ /rupture, he has released several critically acclaimed albums and hosted a weekly radio show on WFMU for five years (which was also broadcasted at Radio Panik Bxl). Clayton’s collaborators include filmmakers Jem Cohen, Joshua Oppenheimer, poet Elizabeth Alexander, singer Norah Jones, and guitarist Andy Moor (The Ex).

Recent projects include Sufi Plug Ins , a free suite of music software-as-art, based on non-western conceptions of sound and alternative interfaces; Room 21, an evening-length composition for 20 musicians staged at The Barnes Foundation; and The Julius Eastman Memorial Dinner, a touring performance piece for grand pianos, electronics, and voice.
