Thu 9 Feb > Rebel Up! @ Fumaça Preta & Yôkaï, Les Ateliers Claus, Bxl

This thursday 9 Feb a special concert night @ Les Ateliers Claus.
Double concert for lovers of psychedelic tropicalia punk & afro jazz

Fumaça Preta: An psychedelic tropicalia noise fuzz rock quartet via Venezuela, Brighton (UK) and Amsterdam. A Deep throat organ over fuzzy funk drumming, then passionate ranting in Portuguese – Pupilas Dilatadas lays out its stall right from the start: a mad love for 1960s Braziian psych rock stirred up with European humour. The wild harmonized guitar chords remain unleashed till four minutes in, and the track is an impressive mix of discipline and righteous craziness. “Toda Pessoa” is even better, a concise and coolly configured mesh of bass and guitar lines strutting towards a chorus whose dumbness verges on perfection. The music shifts easily from pomp rock riffs to lounge moments, with space echo and other FX splashed generously about. Espelhos Fundidos is a casually brilliant throwaway: a high bassline, cello and bass clarinet taking turns on melody, while waves of insane laughter and echo crash over the top. This is record collection rock, if you like, but from people with very special collections. It’s amazing that the whole steaming, tropical concoction has emerged from a tiny Amsterdam studio.

Yôkaï: is pure tribal jazz. They play groovy composition in the style of Ethio master Mulatu Astatke, but also with more quiet moments where Fred Becker exchanges his sax for the ney flute. All in all a pleasant and broody afro-ethio atmosphere. For Les Ateliers Claus they will perform a special set where they” work around tribal compostions.

Hello Brussels!

10990007_10153255344825782_3334741651309786676_o

This saturday a sweet night at Beursschouwburg together with kunstencenter De Vooruit from Ghent as part of the yearly Out Loud festival.
British afropunk-poppers Zun Zun Egui sadly had to cancel their show, but Rebel Up! helped arranging some fine replacements for them, 2 bands even, yay!

We´re proud to present French-British outfit Orchestre Du Mont-Plaisant and local Brussels & Ghent afro-heroes Mocambo to fill this night with their special global sounds.

Orchestre Du Mont-Plaisant specialises in all global styles with a heavy psychedelic sauce. They bring together world rhythms and moody cinematic moments playing blues and dance pieces, with notable influences from Congolese Soukous, African highlife, Ethiopian jazz, cumbia, séga and a whiff of Middle-East and Turkish Psychedelia to make your head & body spin.


Mocambo
will shake you up with their heavy Afro-Brazilian & urban Afrobeat rhythms. It´s the project by rapper Le Tagarel and composer Tartaruga and joined by our own Brussels artist Témé Tan and several other master musicians. Their strong sound takes you from Angola to Brasil in many colours and spheres. Get ready to rumble with this wild band!

Before, between & after global tunes from around the world by Rebel Up! SebCat

and oh yes, IT´S FREE IN!!!!!

Schedule:
22:00 Mocambo

Yo Brussels!

canvasholidyas

It´s that fun time again, Recyclart Holidays festival starts this week, the best local festival of Brussels with alternative culture, art and community activities every thursday & friday that will run until 1st of August.  The workshops will start again this thursday on the outdoor square, Pain Publik; the public oven, grilled bites at the BBQ and much more. So why even leave on holidays if you can stay your own city?

On this first Holidays In Vitro evening of the summer our Rebel Up! SebCat will be teaming up with eclectic global dj Duckfood from Rotterdam for some global sound trips from 19:00 – 22:00 while the BBQ will be sizzling with tasty bites.

and also from 22:00 the South Korea – Belgium world cup match will be shown on big screen outdoor on the square, for a good alternative viewing in the setting sun.

Directly followed by a live concert of La Fanfare De Belgistan in the big room of Recyclart, who will bring a mix of ethio jazz, funk, gnawa and balkan styles all mashed together in the unique Belgistan sound >

and ofcourse, it’s all free in like every thursday during the Holidays festival!
more info here (NL) or here (FR).

 

 

 

sat 26; triple Rebel Up! in 3 different countries simultaneously! > Netherlands, Belgium & Great Britain

yeah, it’s no hoax or joke; Rebel Up! is divided in three equal parts to go and play at 3 parties on the same night, at the same time!
This never happened before, so it’s a funny fact to remember.  so hope you can choose the party closest and to your liking 😉

RU 26-10-13
first up, our special fundraiser night @ de Vinger in Den Haag, where we will have the mighty awesome Orchestre du Mont-Plaistant (FR/UK) playing their global funk and jazz psychedelica. The night will be hosted by Rebel Up! Palm M who will bring on his best heat 🙂

You’ll get to jive on this four-guy combo from London. They bring back a bit of soundtrack psychedelia from the 60’s and 70’s, with them you’ll also get into some nifty African and Latino sounds. Rebel Up! DJs will wrap it all up to let you bounce some more.

Benefits at the entrance will go for a great cause, the Stahili Foundation, fighting to give a normal life for Kenyan orphans. So every extra cent is worth it.

Damage : 5 euro
