New release out > African Electronic Diaspora: Black Lives Matter fundraiser compilation, 28 tracks!

V/A – African Electronic Diaspora: Black Lives Matter

release date: Friday 04.09 Bandcamp Friday
on Bandcamp only > www.rebeluprecords.bandcamp.com


In the aftermath of the Black Lives Matter protests in June allover the globe, followed by a summer with or without holidays, it’s important to keep the flame burning and the discussion going. The road is still long, but united we stand, moving forward together.

The aim of this compilation is to raise funds for various (inter)national NGO’s, anti-rasicm advocacy groups and organisations of black initiative, with all proceedings to be donated to these causes. (Look in press info for full list of carefully selected organiations)

The artists donated their music as a collaboration between Rebel Up Records, the artists and the international labels Nyege Tapes, Syrphe, Bongo Joe Records, Sdban Records, Galletas Calientes, Blanc Manioc, Indigenous Underground, Strut, Earconditioning and 1000Hz Records. On this compilation we brought together mostly electronic African or Afro descendant artists from the worldwide diaspora and artists based in their homelands, from motherland Africa to Latin America to the Caribbean and back to Europe. It’s a vibrant combination of contemporary sounds that showcases the current talent of the artists and producers, combined with awareness for black lives & art and serving as a fundraiser. You can find a list of the supported organisations on the last page. Also info on each of the artists and their Bandcamp pages are included in the notes.

As this compilation is an ongoing process, it’s possible that the tracklist can still grow with a few extra songs in the next weeks. Please support & buy this compilation, let the internal fire burn on.

Also check the amazing support by the blogs Pan African Music and Rhythm Passport with nice articles and words about the compilation!

Fri 28.08 > Rebel Up @ Beirut Solidarity, Sounds of a City, Recyclart, Bxl

This friday, a solidarity fundraiser event for Beirut in Recyclart.

6 Brussels DJ’s will donate their art to support the victims, NiXiE, Rebel Up SebCat, Deejay Kwak, Soumaya Phéline, DC Salas and Sara Dziri. Finally, to close gently, we will be guided by Mikhali, a young DJ from Beirut who has recently moved to Brussels.

Supporting the Remeil district which is located a couple of hundreds meters away from the harbour. This neighbourhood is the home of several major hospitals, several schools, studios of artists, a park for whom – prior to the events – the residents were fighting to save this rare green area of the town. The complicated political and economical situation makes it still hard to transfer funds to Lebanon and to identify associations clearly offering the guarantees that are required.

With the help of the team at Belgium for Lebanon – België voor Libanon – La Belgique pour le Liban, you can give your donation in confidence. This is a genuine civic work between Lebanese on location as well as the large diaspora network of the Lebanese diaspora living all around the globe.

Another way to contribute is to listen and buy Lebanese artists’ albums, via Bandcamp links (we put the link below), a great way of supporting them and discovering an outstanding music scene.
