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)=========
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/
