SPIRITCZUALIC ENHANCEMENT CENTER (Akuphone)
Giving birth via impromptu instrumentals to glimpses of synchronistic magic, these Spiritczualics remain agnostic: are they magicians, or merely charlatans?
Spiritczualic Enhancement Center is an outernational movement.
A traveling nexus collecting dozens of participants to explore alchemical realms of sonic ritualism. Fusing DIY electronics with experimental improvisation and traditional instruments, recurring collaborators have studied under masters of Andalusian music, ethno-music research as well as important underground venues in Berlin and Hamburg’s musical scenes. Visual artist Dima Rabik contributes his miniature ink drawing style to all Spiritczualic releases – as well as a live-drawing projection during performances.

Spiritczualic (“cz” borrowed from the Polish / tʂ / hard “tch”) – a word-melange of “ritczualic” and spiritual, reflects upon the ancient practice of musical ritualism. As an idea, it greatly predates the physical occurrence of the Enhancement Center – on Christmas 2017, when an Ottoman building below the Gates of Jerusalem provided itself for a remarkable meeting. The trespassing people who happened to be there – admittingly bizarre participants synchronized by state-of-mind rather than tune or scale – began exploring sonic sessions of do-it-yourself mysticism. Witnesses of its ritualistic gatherings have indeed reported moments of divination – and possibly sorcery. This raises the question, will the audience once again behold the allurement of Higher Sources – or rather testify to trickery.“

Hello Amsterdam!

This thursday 30 june, Rebel Up! will be playing once again at Amsterdam Roots Festival, this time at the grand Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ.  *A remix of modern en traditional music from Marrakech* is the theme of the night, hosted by Rest Is Noise, What Design Can Do & Rebel Up! as part of the Amsterdam Roots festival, with special international Moroccan guests Officerfishdumplings and Dakka Chrafoo. Much to look forward to!

Behind the pseudonym officerfishdumplings is the Moroccan-American musician, DJ and multimedia artist Hatim Belyamani. He is the founder of remix <- -> culture, an art collective that connects traditional music to digital remix art. Officerfishdumplings is the musical expression of this collective and what Belyamani does is quite original. In search of his property and the Moroccan musical roots he regularly travels to Morocco to record local groups. With this raw material he creates his amazing audio visual remixes.

The Dutch-Moroccan percussion group Dakka Chrafoo plays traditional music from Marrakech. They play Dakka Marrakchia: a popular music with lots of upbeat percussion, punishment clapping and piercing wind.

The DJs of RebelUp! will frame the musical evening with catchy pearls from the ‘rougher sounds from the global underground.

SPACE LADY (US)
T H E S P A C E L A D Y is a street-performing singer based in Colorado, USA. Originally beginning on the streets of Boston in the late 70s and has recently begun playing again She has travelled through the stars to bring us the most wonderfully alien take on electronic street-song, channelled through a soul that has taken in UFO sightings, hiding from the US government, homelessness, communing, hitchhiking, and over two decades of playing the street corners, storefronts, and subways of America. A Casio battery-powered keyboard, vocal mic and echo & phaser controls are all the ingredients required for a live experience to align the spheres.
