Sat 16 March > Rebel Up & HAPE Collective present: FOKN Bois (Ghana / live) + Nickodemus (Wonderwheel / NYC) & DJ Buosis (Chad / IT) @ Au Quai Bxl

Rebel Up and HAPE Collective join forces to organise a night of fresh afrobeats & tropical dancefloor madness, with a heavy international cast, presenting two new albums! A Belgian première, don’t miss it!

FOKN BOIS (GH – live)
The Ghanaian duo FOKN Bois is made up of singer/songwriter and producer M3NSA & pidgin rapper Wanlov the Kubolor who have been building a solid reputation as progressive and controversial musicians over the last 8 years. Celebrated for their entertaining performances, they throw sarcastic albeit funny shock lyrics that deal with social-political issues over a unique blend of hip hop, afro beats and Ghanaian hip life and azonto. They’re touring Europe to present their recent 5th (!) album, “Afrobeats LOL”, backed by the Hungarian producer/dj András Weil, and are most happy to put the Brussels crowd on fire! First show in Belgium!

Nickodemus (US) & DJ BUOSIS (IT) presenting the album “Pulo NDJ – Desert to Douala” (Wonderwheel Recordings)
Nickodemus can be easily called one of the ‘world beat’ pioneers, ever since he started organising the “Turntables on the Hudson” parties in New York in the late 90s. Early 2000 he started producing and set up his own label, Wonderwheel Recordings, to release his music and that of like minded producers (Zeb, The Spy from Cairo…), mixing hip hop, funk and house with African, Latin, Brasilian, Arab and Balkan flavours. By signing a new wave of global artists like Chancha Via Circuito, Populous, Thornato, Tremor and Alsarah & The Nubatones, his label stays on top of the international scene.
Invited by the international Hape Collective, he went to Chad to work on a new album with local talented musicians, which resulted in the ecletic-versatile album “Pulo NDJ – Desert to Douala”, a fusion of afrobeat, hip hop, electro and traditional rhythms and instruments, to be released March 29 on Wonderwheel. In avant-première, he’ll present the album (and much more) together with DJ Buosis from Hape!

REBEL UP! (Bxl – everywhere)
SebCat & LeBlanc have been active for more than 10 years now, spreading their love for new and less known dance music from all corners of the world, whether it be more traditional folk, global urban club music or fusion experiments in between.

Sat 27 Sept > Rebel Up! Soundclash @ Salle Rogier Bxl, w/ special guests Capitol K & Rafael Aragon

Rebel-Up_2013_12_A6_web-poster

From september onwards, we will have new Rebel Up! Soundclash resident night every 2 months at Salle Rogier hosted by SebCat & LeBlanc. Every time with special international guests to make it even more special for all of you, bringing new global sounds to Brussels!


To kick off our first party night at Salle Rogier, we invite two special international guests for a night of cumbiatronics, global bass & digital global folk pop > Capitol K and Rafael Aragon!

 

Capitol K (UK – live)
The wizard producer of the Total Refreshment Studios and band member of Archie Bronson Outfit (Domino Records) will be performing his latest release “Andean Dub”. A collection of Cumbia Psych and Lofi, born of K’s wanderings through South America. An inspirational, original mix of deep Andean cumbia bass, analogue synth textures, sparkling percussion and spaced out live charango playing. Just check his amazing electronic cumbia sound below!

 

Rafael Aragon (FR – dj/live)
Rafael Aragón aka Rafiralfiro has latin and arabic roots but was born and raised between downtown Paris and its multicultural suburbs. Rafael’s eclectic taste and versatile take on music production, got him obsessed with the idea of mixing traditional folk music with contemporary electronic club music, looking for the perfect balance between the organic and synthetic, the past and the future. Rafael Aragon’s music is mainly club oriented, with heavy basses, infectuous rhythms, yet delicate, well balanced and highly psychedelic. You better be warned!

 

Rebel Up! dj’s SebCat & Leblanc
As residents and hosts of the night, Sebcat & LeBlanc will warm up the night and keep it going till late. Expect as always a diverse and eclectic mix of tunes from around the world. Global bass, digital folk pop, any good beats from the global south, rooted in local traditions… Select global, play local!

 

Visuals all night by VJ Alerta (CL/NL)
Latin inspired visuals by this Chilean wonder girl, who colourfully mashes traditional and modern latin spheres together into a warm digital psychedelic experience for the eye.
