Fri 27 july > Rebel Up @ Giraffes & Penguins w/ Maga Bo, l’Uzinne, Bxl

🌶🎵 GL🌎BAL UNDERGR🌎UND 🎵🌶

Giraffes, penguins and other global party animals, get ready! An amazing musical globetrotter will bring us the perfect vibes to go with this tropical Belgian summer!

Relentlessly traveling the world as DJ, producer and ethnomusicologist, MAGA BO is on tour in Europe this summer and will make a stop at L’uZinne. His performances are so eclectic and impregnated with so many musical cultures that we cannot predict what will happen. All we can say is that he knows hundreds of ways to make us sweat 🙂

But that’s not all! Four other global DJ’s will also guide you through this global underground trip: LeBlanc from Rebel Up, Radio Frappè, Dragan and Le Grand Méchant Loop.

Expect also to get lost in a crazy labyrinth set up by HeyLàBas and to enjoy a nice pay-as-you-like meal prepared by Up Cooking.

Fri 5 July @ OCCII Amsterdam > Rebel Up! Soundclash & Subtropikal dance night w/ Maga Bo (BR)

MAGA-BO-01_web

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)=========
http://processrebel.net/
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)=====

Maga Bo (BR) & MC Teba (SA); ethnic bass & global dancehall
We’re proud to announce 2 special international guests on our night. Globetrotting producer Maga Bo hails from Rio de Janeiro and is one of the godfathers of the ‘global bass’ sound before the name had even been invented, having worked with artists from all around Africa and Latin America. His recent 2012 album *Quilombo do Future* features a modern Brazilian sound where he merged regional Afro folkloric styles from the Nordeste together with modern electronic dancehall beats, a true futuristic melting pot for the global dancefloor! MC Teba from Cape Town, South Africa, will perform duties on the mic during Maga Bo’s live set. Yep, be warned; it’s gonna be hot, steamy and wild.

Saturday 21st nov @ OCCII, A’dam; Rebel Up! Soundclash *Rio vs Sampa Brazilian cidade clash* w/ Maga Bo(US/BR), DJ Tudo(BR) & Process Rebel (US)

Wahey, next Rebel Up! party coming up!

This one will be a *Rio vs Sampa Brazilian cidade clash*. We will guests from Brazil’s 2 biggest and most famous cities; Rio de Janeiro & Sao Paulo. Anyone familiar with these cities will know it; these cities are overly vibrant with music, culture and liveliness! For that very same reason they are also each other’s nemesis and created some good old rivalry. The Carioca’s (inhabitants of Rio) think themselves as the most life enjoying people while the Paulista’s (inhabitants of Sampa -or Sao Paulo-) see themselves as the centre of Brazilian culture. Oh dear, but on this night the rivalry will have a delicious taste where Maga Bo and DJ Tudo will be giving their best sounds.

Maga Bo (US/BR/Rio) is the messenger of things exotic, broken and mashed up. expect a live dj set with furious bass line that will wobble on capoeira rhythms. Ever touring the world as a soundman and general globalteer, it will be his 3rd time(!) already at Rebel Up! but it’s always an honour to have him. Both times he played with us, it was a FULL house! Check out his site or myspace for sounds & mixes.

DJ Tudo (BR) hails from Sampa and this is only the first time he comes to Holland! His sound is a varied mix of samba, bossa nova, capoeira , forro and other Brazilian dance styles with some sweet breakbeat and electro bass added for full effect.
webflyer 21nov
During the night, your faithfull Rebel Up! crew will take care of globetrotting dance sounds, cult spheres and colourfull visuals. We also will be joined by US ex-patriate Process Rebel, living in A’dam nowadays. He’ll bring a full clash of rootsical mashups with a global ‘up yours’ attitude 🙂

We also will have a special photo exhibition by Enno de Jong (A’dam, 1967), who has made an amazing serie about the street Children of São Martinho, Rio. This exhibition is a combined project of 1991 and a recent revisit in 2009. See below the photo of Marina in 1991 & 2009. www.PositiveIndustries.nl

As you know, we dig the charity cause and we have again selected Brazilian organisation IBISS, who do multiple street projects in the Rio area. We’ll go around with a collection box during the night or you can donate at the door!
