Sat. 25 Aug; Rebel Up! Soundclash > afro caribbean night with Lobi Firi (NL/SR) & Unsoundbwoy (AU)

Hello all!

Hope you had a good summer holiday where it might have taken you. Oh boy, it’s been roasty warm and sunny here the last few weeks. Time for another Rebel Up! Soundclash and we’ll keep it hot with some tropical Afro-Caribbean action with live Surinami band Lobi Firi and Ozzie global guest dj Unsoundbwoy from Melbourne.

Surinami band Lobi Firi will play their very special kaseko funk and kawina sound, impossible not to dance til you sweat! The band will start around midnight, so get in on time.

Unsoundbwoy will play a grinding selection between heavy dancehall and african electronic dance music, kuduro and more. Check some of his excellent mixes and mashups!

And the some, ofcourse the Rebel Up! dj’s will never miss out on a good Soundclash party. Expect a steady selection of unknown global tunes filled with sweet melodies for the ear or bouncing bass for the body. Watch out that you don’t get wrongfooted playing hopscotch with these onorthodox boy scouts.

Any profit on the night will go to NGO Bhakti Luhur in Eastern Java, which takes care of handicapped children. One of the aid workers is a dutchman who runs the excellent Madrotter Treasure Hunt blog, all about Indonesian pop, rock and folk music.

See ya there!
