ahoy folks!

Another Rebel Up! Soundclash night coming up with a sweet line up of afrolicious guests.

aj holmes
East London musician A.J.Holmes is the founding member & singer of The Hackney Empire band, who play a marriage of afro-pop and soukous paired with traditional pop sensibilities as a serious warm vibe. A.J. learned to play African *palm wine* guitar music from Folo Graff who played with Sierra Leonese legend S.E. Rogie (the king of palm wine guitar music) and from that moment on he got totally sucked into African music which also resulted into co-organising the succesfull Secousse club nights of tropical madness in London together with global electronic duo Radioclit (M.I.A., The Very Best, Amadou & Mariam). On this night he will play a solo palm wine guitar set as warmup, followed by a super special set with guitar & dj decks at the same time for a unique approach of his mixed African sound. We can only say; not to be missed! Listen to his mixtape & songs of what to expect.

alex f
dj Alex Figueira, born in Venezuala with Brazilian roots, has a BIG passion for vinyl; he is the co owner of the Vintage Voudou vinyl shop in A’dam, a grand collector of vintage African and Latin vinyls, runs the Music With Soul label and plays in the bands Fumaça Preta & Conjunto Papa Upa. This passionate spinning man will sure make you bounce & swing with his special delicious selections from the tropics. and oh, it’s his birthday party!!!

Support as ever by your interlocal Rebel Up! dj’swith all kinda fruity & spicy global dance tunes.

Brazilian NGO Tiaozinho

During the next 3 months, a sports project for children and adolescents in one of the Sao Paulo favela’s will be organised. The aim is to stimulate social skills, values like team spirit, playing together and fairplay so that the youths can make positive decisions in their future life, but the main goal simply is to just have fun and enjoy themselves. Sports that will feature are football, volleyball & circus techniques and some other activities. Also friendly tournaments will be organised for the children as an end goal to all their sports training and with an incentive for them to invite their family into their playing environment as part of the social process. For this project, they need to raise money to buy sports equipment (balls, nets, clothing etc) and to cover other costs.

RU 28 09 13

Hi Rebel Up! friends,

We’re back from Russia where we had incredible gigs in St Petersburg and Moscow along with The Ex, De Kift and Skip and Die. Plenty of memories and slight hangover but Den Haag hasn’t heard from us for too long and that’s why we’re ready to let Cafe De Vinger tremble again from the various vibes we’re aiming at you. For those who like vintage Afro and Latino sounds come early to show your best moves, the ones who like rougher bassy beats will be delighted to hear DJ Mataklap is coming to deliver his long time experienced mixes, it can be New Wave Cumbia, Moombah as well as Reggada or Shangaan… If you don’t know what that means, come and find out for yourself, your heartbeats will do the rest.

Special guest of the night is Agga resident Mataklap (ex-Bomb Diggy), who since this year rides other global soundwaves to surely to make folks shake. Rebel Up! residents Palm M and SebCat will take up the flame to keep the night burning with swinging global styles.

As always your entrance fee shall go towards a good cause. Profits of the night will go to an orphanage project in Indonesia. This summer, Mataklap spent some time helping out at the Saewa Dharma Children’s Home in Pakisan, Bali. This home takes care of children whose parents are unable to do so. This is mostly due to poverty. Apart from providing these children a home and food, Saewa Dharma focuses on building spiritual strength, an appreciation of morality and education. The children all go to school when they’re old enough, and at the home itself they receive additional lessons in Yoga and English language. They are also frequently exposed to foreign cultures by volunteers from overseas. The home itself maintains an intimate atmosphere, with three volunteers who care for the children round the clock. They rely completely on donations, mostly from the immediate community itself, as well as various donations from different sources.

Sat 6 July @ de Vinger, Den Haag > Rebel Up! Soundclash party

rebel up 6 july 2013
Hi Up the Rebels,

Our selection has grown wilder and once again with all types of mashups between Soca, Soukous, Cumbia, global rough bass, the groove of old skool and new skool Afro-Funk, Desert blues, festive Chaabi, mad Indian drum n bass and a bit of spicy Balkan beat here and there.

As usual the enjoyment is also based on the fact that your feet won’t be moving for no reason, the benefits of the night will go this time to Women’s Initiative for Gender Justice, a NGO struggling for the changes of mentality and mainly for the governments leaving consciously open sexual crimes unpunished. If you won’t to know more about this organization, you can go to www.iccwomen.org or on their twitter account @4GenderJustice.

We hope to see you there to share some real fun times together.
Sound delicatessen await…

Fri 5 July @ OCCII Amsterdam > Rebel Up! Soundclash & Subtropikal dance night w/ Maga Bo (BR)

MAGA-BO-01_web

SubTropikal and Rebel Up! Soundclash join forces to bring you a one-off night of border crossing, dancefloor melting global sound.

We are excited to announce the return of global producer/DJ extraordinaire MAGA BO to Amsterdam and where better to host him than OCCII! Expect OCCII’s dancefloor to be transformed into a hot, booming, subtropikal cave. There will be great music, there will be dancing and there will be sweating – this is going to be a night not to be missed!

=========MAGA BO (BR)=========
Rio de Janeiro based Maga Bo has carved out his name in the “global bass” world (though we think he was making it before the term even existed!) for his futuristic mix of worldwide organic, traditional sounds with urban, bass ridden, sound system culture. His productions blend and blur global influences from dancehall, kuduro, cumbia, afro-brazilica and hip-hop into an infectious, club ready international sound. His latest album, the critically acclaimed ‘Quilombo do Futuro”, is a mind-blowing 21st century take on traditional Afro-Brazilian music, combining maculelê, coco, samba, jongo etc with hip-hop, dub, dancehall beats, ragga, kuduro and electronic bass.

=========PROCESS REBEL (NL)=========
http://processrebel.net/
As if that wasn’t enough, we are lucky enough to have local bassario Process Rebel join for a special live collaboration with Maga Bo. Process Rebel has gained a reputation for his ability to traverse and unite the spectrum of global electronic music, seamlessly weaving together dub, dancehall, hip-hop, bass and the countless inversions of worldwide electronica.

=====SUBTROPIKAL & REBEL UP! SOUNDCLASH (FROM ALL OVER)=====
Joining forces to co-produce this event, SubTropikal and Rebel Up! Soundclash share the same philosophy: bringing you the freshest genre blending, top quality, global-digital sounds!
Expect some fine tropical bass mashed with furious folklore, non-stop dance 🙂

Profit of the night goes to charity Coucha Camp Refugees in Morocco. 262 refugees are on hungerstrike due to closure of their UNHCR camp in Medenine. more info; http://chouchaprotest.noblogs.org/
