His production output never stops and every time he has new sounds to share with his nightly audience.

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. They host radio programs on Radio Campus, Bruzz, Kiosk Radio and The Word Radio, organise parties and concerts in different venues in Brussels and deejay all over Belgium and abroad. With an eponymous new record label, the mission to promote new world music and adventurous artists, still continues…

HAPE Collective (Havana – Chad – Brussels – the world)
Born in Havana, Cuba, in 2016, HAPE is a collective of djs and musicians spread around Latin America, Africa and Europe. Lead by an unquenchable thirst for modernizing roots, HAPE has established itself as a major catalyst for Cuban underground musical talents (Yasek Manzano, Dj Jigüe and El Menor, Yissy & Bandancha, El Individuo, Eric Cimafunk, Niño Fony…) while multiplying its collaborations with artists from Chad, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, United States, Belgium, Mexico, Italy and the UK.
