Sun 22 Sept > Rebel Up Records @ Global Street Sounds, Ancienne Belgique, Bxl *FREE IN*

This sunday > AB40 KICK OFF : GLOBAL STREET SOUNDS.
This year it will be at the Anspachlaan right in front of the AB entrance with afterparty in the Club room. Free in and the Club room will be hosted by Rebel Up Records with 2 live acts and DJ’s.

with concerts by La Yegros (AR), Daniel Dzidzonu (TG/BE), SUSOBRINO (BE/BO), Nuri (TN) and Rebel Up DJ’s.

Daniel Dzidzonu
A powerful trumpet player with roots in Togo, and proud of them too: he’s been known to wear a Mobutu hat and has coined in jest the slogan ‘Make Africa Great Again’. His highly infectious Afrobeat, however, is an extremely faithful interpretation, influenced by such greats as Fela Kuti and Tony Allen, Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela of course, Salif Keita, and Mory Kanté. He’s finally completed his first ‘full’ album which he will present. We are expecting a lot of people both in front of the stage and on it. Video and new one!

La Yegros
A thrilling blend of folktronica and ‘nu cumbia’. The Argentinean Mariana, aka Là Yegros, offers delightful, highly danceable sounds built upon cumbia, chamamé and other folk influences with an injection of electronica. Hence the term ‘folktronica’. She has recently completed work on her new CD, ‘Suelta’ (Salvation). And you’re sure to know her from her summer hit & video ‘Viene De Mi‘.

Rebel Up Records showcase evening! > > >

Susobrino
is the alter ego of 24-year-old producer and instrument collector Bart Van Obbergen. His Bolivian roots have inspired his passion for exotic sounds, especially traditional South American percussive music. He blends his own field recordings and other music with digital ingredients into a rhythmic and energetic soundtrack.

Nuri
released the LP ‘Drup’ in collaboration with Tunisian label Shouka: a tribute to his Tunisian heritage, with percussion and vocals from all over the African continent, and all that in a digital mix, an ‘amalgam of then and now.’ Video here.

Rebel Up DJ’s
you know the drill: global sounds from all directions to shake to!

We have invited 2 local Brussels global bass dj’s & producers > Gan Gah & Dovecake!

Gan Gah (MR / Bxl)
Fed by traditional « Gnawa » and Berber rythms ever since he was born in the suburbs of Agadir, Morocco, young DJ and producer Gan Gah is now based in Brussels.This accomplished musician, who has been performing for many years as a beatmaker under various pseudonyms, knows how to shake a dancefloor with bewitching beats. Offering a cunning combination of club music and traditional North-African music/rythms/melodies, his first EP “Souktronics” is a declaration of love to his Moroccan roots and to modern electronic music which is about to make a lot of noise on worldwide dancefloors. Moroccan Bass, you said?

Dovecake (US / Bxl)
Intergalactic Body Trance Provider who washed up in Brussels a few years ago, but nomadic nonetheless and spends most of his time in different continents. Equal dj as expressive dancer, bounded to celestial ancestral interconnectivity. Adventures in Rhythm & Bass to make your heart melt and hips shake! Afro bounce bass vibes all in directions possible.

+ resident Rebel Up! SebCat
The bounciest global bass beats and whatnot

Come bounce with us!
