Fri 25 May > Rebel Up @ Sismique & Sacré party w/ Global Hybrid & Dengue Dengue Dengue @ Bazaar Club, Bxl

yes yes, this friday night, Peruvian producer duo Dengue Dengue Dengue is coming once more to Brussels, at Bazaar club, invited by the Global Hybrid crew!

Sismique & Sacré is the new madness of Global Hybrid Records, a great ceremony that combines the telluric depth of infra-bass with the cosmic vibrations of our third eye. An irresistible jolt that will shake you from the plantar arch to the pineal gland. An event that will highlight the wealth of new South American electronic music. A hallucinatory journey along the electrified backbone of the Andean Cordillera, a mystical wandering in the luxuriance of the Amazon jungle and beyond …

As usual, the room will be redecorated by us, with a light show and a psychedelic mapping, and as always a nice cocoon arranged as a chill-out, for tired legs and intimate discussions.

With prestigious guests, eminent representatives of the digital cumbia and new Afro-Latin music such as Dengue Dengue Dengue! At their side, the youngest of Global Hybrid Records, the talented Belgian-Bolivian producer Susobrino, who just released a resounding first EP last month. His show mixes indigenous folk instruments, electronic hacks and recordings from his travels in Bolivia! Fresh from a 6-month tour in South America, the duo Fanfara Electronica (co-founders of Global Hybrid), will present their new creations, imbued with Andean mysticism, electronica downtempo and relentless Rave moose. Faithful companion of the crew and agitator number 1 of the world music scene in Belgium, SebCat of Rebel Up will treat us with a selection of the latest nuggets from the global underground.

Thu 8 Feb > Rebel Up Soundclash @ OCCII Amsterdam w/ UMEME + Nyege Nyege Tapes: Sisso Sounds (TZ)

Yo Amsterdam, this thursday, a special Rebel Up Soundclash night in OCCII with Nyege Nyege Tapes label & UMEME.

Since 2010, Rebel Up has been promoting nights with sounds from the global underground at OCCII and continues to do so with international lineups.

Nyege Nyege Tapes is a label based in Kampala, Uganda,
exploring, producing and releasing contemporary electronic & outsider music from central & eastern Africa. In February they will tour with Tanzanian duo Sisso Sounds, who are playing a showcase at the Berlin CTM festival and afterwards to NL & BE. This will be their only show in NL!

Sisso Sounds *live set* (Tanzania / Nyege Nyege)
For the past 15 years the Tanzanian megalopolis of Dar Es Salaam has had one of the most exciting underground electronic music scenes in East Africa. A constellation of micro-scenes from Mchiriku, Sebene and Segere all the way to its latest mutation of Singeli that after years of lurking in the underground finally has exploded into the mainstream and taken over Bongo Flava as the music of choice amongst Tanzania’s youth. Born in the sprawling working class neighborhoods of Tandale and Manzese, Singeli’s signature sound consists of fast paced frantic loops interlocking with each other, with influences from Zanzibars Tarab music all the way to South African afro-house coupled with mc’s who often spit satirical lyrics about the challenges facing Tanzania’s youth, from police corruption to the complications of dating girls when you are broke. If there is one studio that stands out amongst the hundreds that dot Dar es Salaam’s musical landscape it is SISSO RECORDS. Sisso have remained uncompromising in their sound, always raw, fast with a punk DIY aesthetic that can at times verge on noise and gabber, to produce a spell binding music that is like no other soundsystem culture in the region. Expect a live set dancehall horns, sirens and heavy MC rapping. For lovers of ravey Afro sounds, balani, shangaan and gqom.

UMEME *live set* (Amsterdam)
Live house/techno with African influences. UMEME was founded by Daniele Labbate (synths and bass) and Bas Bouma (drums), two friends and experienced musicians who found themselves falling in love with live electronic and traditional African music. Over the course of countless nocturnal jam sessions, the two found a striking way to fuse these two extremes, with subtle electro, house and techno accents. Yannick van ter Beek (percussion) adds the afro to the rave with his African rhythms as third member of UMEME. Umeme latest ep “Athnan” reflects the focus of Labbate and Bouma on producing a crossover between North African rhythms, analog synths and drummachines. While the previous album “Afrorave” was a dark and flashy mix of different styles and rhythms coming from of Togo, Ghana, Ethiopia “Athnan” instead concentrates exclusively on Maghreb and Sharqi music originally from Morocco, Algeria and Egypt.

Moroto Hvy Indstr (Nyege Nyege DJ)
Head DJ of the Nyege Nyege label and resident at Boutiq Electroniq Sound System, Moroto plays some deep grooves and slamming African bass-tech-house mutations.
