After last year’s fun, Rebel Up & Friends are coming back at Saintklet summer outdoor terrace on the Bxl canalside! with a great international lineup of special guests DJ Cami Layé Okún, Edna Martinez & Fresh Nunas, hosted by SebCat.

Cami Layé Okún (Havana, Cuba)
Cuban DJ/selector who collects vinyl records from allover the world as a way of sharing stories through music with similar organic roots. Her sound spans from the tropical to the tribal; think African and Caribbean rhythms mixed with a Latin soul and sensibility, engaging audiences and dancefloors with Cuban disco, Afro-Caribbean rarities and tropical Amazonian funky grooves. Currently based in Havana, she is so far the only local DJ that produces and promotes events in a 100% vinyl format. Since 2020 Cami hosts her own monthly show ‘Insolar’ on London’s NTS Radio where she curated sunny music from different parts of the world.

Edna Martinez (Cartagena, Colombia / Berlin)
DJ / curator, artist and radio host from the Colombian Caribbean based in Berlin, Germany. Her musical selection is linked to her artistic research in which she explores autobiographical migratory routes with the concept of resistance as its axis. Her sound involves Afro-Caribbean organic rhythms, jazz bases, tribal polyrhythm, Arabic folklore, and more. She is the woman behind projects such as “Latinarab” a trip from Jaffa to the Arab Caribbean, and “El Volcán El Orgullo de Berlin”, the only soundsystem picó party in Germany. She also moderates monthly radio shows on Radio Alhara (Palestine), Worldwide FM (London) and Boxout.fm (India).

new digital release on Rebel Up Records: Satanique Samba Trio – Forrível, Halloween / Dia das Bruxas special mini album

Satanique Samba Trio is back with another mini-album, made during this everlasting confinement.

F O R R Í V E L – Halloweeen / Dia das Bruxas special, get it on our Bandcamp.

After 10 albums dedicated to the aesthetical disassembling of Brazilian music’s most recurrent clichés, Satanique Samba Trio aims its ongoing research at a new formula for musical fuckery: the artificial combination between forró, the popular Brazilian groovy rhythm and horror synth, the not-so-popular music genre extracted from old keyboard-ridden horror film scores.

Think of what would happen if the most syncopated of all Brazilian folk rhythms incorporated a bunch of obsolete-but-nowadays-trendy giallo soundtrack tropes.
Mathematically speaking, forró + horror synth = forrór synth. And that is where Forrível is coming from.

Well, enough of homework. It’s Halloween once again (or Dia das Bruxas – Witches Day, as it’s called in Brazil) – and it’s raining in Brazil. As we are slowly descending into a renewed global lockdown, here some soundtrack sounds for these dark times.

REBEL UP! SEBCAT
Originator of the Rebel Up! DJ collective, their infamous parties are no secret to the Brussels global underground and beyond. Always bringing the freshest and bounciest global sounds, from ethnic electronic bass to digital folklore, it’s all there to hear and feel. Tune in to radio show Rebel Up Nightshop on Radio Campus Bxl & Radio Groovalizacion. Select global, play local!

Alizarina *LIVE*
From a techno kick to a melodic clarinet, Alizarina mixes different influences: Techno, Klezmer, Gypsy and Balkan beats… Fruit of travels and a strongly developed curiosity, his music will take you on a modern trip through his special Ethno-Techno Tzigane sound. Just a few months ago, he released his debut album ‘Melodic Blossoms’ on Global Hybrid, an album that sublimely bridges tradition with the modern.

TOHM (Fanfara Electronica)
One of the originators of Global Hybrid crew that host many amazingly wild parties in Brussels and part of the Fanfara Electronica. His playground is a free and liberated mix of the electronic universe and world music. Tohm brings deep tribal sounds, a spirit for the freedom of wild electronic celebrations, ethnic sounds to dancefloor with a kicking beat!

Rafael Aragon
Birthday boy Rafael also joins us! His obsessive curiosity has him digging through everything from latin beats to oriental melodies, unearthing unique samples that he (re)mixes, twists and polishes with a watchmaker’s precision. Rafael’s music is demanding but light-hearted, intelligent but down to earth, and overcomes musical language barriers with its lack of stylistic limitations.
