Thu 7 June, Rebel Up & Friends session w/ Bleepolar (CO) @ Kiosk Radio, Bxl

yes, another Rebel Up & Friends livestream session at Brussels Kiosk Radio, in Parc Royal.

For this session we invited Colombian producer/remixer Bleepolar, one of the most interesting ethnic electronic producers of Bogota! He’s been reinventing afro-colombian rythms such as Cumbia and Champeta with a subtle and classy touch by fusioning it with house music, african techno and dancehall elements. It’s his first time touring in Europe and we’re thrilled to have him.

Our session will run from 16 to 18h, starting with SebCat and Bleepolar straight after.
Tune in on the livestream, or follow the Rebel Up FB page.

Next day on friday 8 june, Bleepolar will perform live at the Deep Tribal South America Special party night by our friends of Global Hybrid in Zodiak Club with a real nice South American lineup. For all info see FB event. Don’t miss out.

Sat 2 June > Giraffes & Penguins #7, Au Quai, Bxl

yes yes, another Giraffes & Penguins party, #7, and perhaps our last for this season at Au Quai.

🌶🎵 GL🌎BAL UNDERGR🌎UND 🎵🌶

For this 7th musical night trip, we are very happy to welcome the shaman of global beats Rafael Aragon, who will hypnotize you with his secret and irresistible frequencies. Ofcourse hosted by Rebel Up SebCat and Le Grand Méchant Loop will move your bodies and souls through the wildest sounds from the global underground!

〰🔅〰 Rafael Aragon 〰🔅〰
The music of Rafael Aragon is cut for the dance floor, rich in bass but delicate, maximalist and highly psychedelic. With a touch of magic inspired by shamanic rites and Afro-Latin and Oriental folk traditions. Mystic chimes, tribal drums and voodoo manners respond to big kicks, hypnotic basslines and electronic batucadas.
With his many live and DJ sets in clubs, free parties and festivals all over Europe and South America, Rafael has made a name for himself as a producer, remixer and DJ on the electronic and world music scene with his powerful “global rave” sound.

special international guest ❂❁❂ Ckrono (IT) ❂❁❂
is Italian-Japanese DJ & Producer Gianluca Daiichiro from Florence, but based in Milan. He is considered one of the pioneers of the international tropical bass sound which he loves to infuse with ethnic influences. From 2011 to 2016 he formed the duo Ckrono & Slesh and has released productions, remixes and collaborations on renowned labels such as Trax, Enchufada, Lowup, Fania, Voodoo Rebel, Babylon Recs, Mr. Bongo, Meanbucket, This Is Kuduro, Funk Na Caixa and much more. Ckrono’s DJ sets are journeys through Afro-Latin-Brazilian grooves mixed with powerful sub basses coming from Italian Fidget, Uk Funky and American’s trap music. All of this can be attributed to the experience gained by spinning alongside heavyweight DJ’s like Fatboy Slim, Crookers, Clap Clap, Branko and DJ Marfox — including gigs all over the globe in Europe, USA, Mexico and Japan. His 1st time in Brussels, be sure he will put the Bonnefooi on fire with heavy bass!

and that’s not all > also on wednesday night, Rebel Up also helps organising a psychedelic cumbia concert of Swiss band Los Orioles in Rue de la Senne.

Los Orioles reload traditionnal tropical music with their own fresh touch of afrobeat and dub breaks. This super hot septet from Biel/Bienne (CH) was initiated by Adrien Guerne in 2013 and is fronted by swiss garage rock legend Dany Digler. They deliver continuous waves of shaking licks and tremolo screams that surf over a groovy and rock-solid cumbia base. Their show offers a sweaty and endless transe of bouncing latin beats washed in a weird and freaky reverbed sci-fi soundscape. Don’t forget your space goggl”es, get your hips implants fixed and go Baila La Cumbia all night long !
