Fri 26 Sept > Rebel Up! dj @ Post-Anatol psychedelic concert night, Les Ateliers Claus w/ Hayvanlar Alemi (TR), Powerdove (US), Yann Gourdon & Hervé Boghossian

Hayvanlar Alemi
Hayvanlar Alemi is a psychedelic folk rock band founded in Ankara. They got together in secondary school in 1999, when they were 14. Classical rock and heavy metal were big influences on teenagers in Ankara then, and they started their musical venture playing hard-and-heavy covers, but very soon self-discovered free improvisation and moved into a more avant-garde approach, and later on occasionally deployed traditional instruments, found-sound elements like live radio, and colorful stage theatrics. They were influenced by the new folk-infused experimental rock scene of the late 90s Istanbul, but isolated from any music scene in Ankara, their sound and song-structure diverged from their contemporaries as they incorporated elements from the findings of their musical research into their sound, which included folk, pop and hybrid sounds of South East Asia, East and West Africa, South America and Russia, as well as Jamaican dub reggae and Californian surf. In 2010, their album Guarana Superpower came out on outernational label Sublime Frequencies and they have just released their latest album Twisted Souvenirs on Unrock.
arrest
is the project of pianist Annie Lewandowski from Minnesota, a place full of things that are long and longer: church services, dinner tables, and worry lines, to name a few. Somebody said there are ten thousand lakes there; if that’s true, each of them shows up in some little way in Annie’s songs. She writes under the name Powerdove, which began as a band of one in California in 2007 and was soon joined by John Dieterich (of noise pop outfit Deerhoof) and French guitarist Thomas Bonvale (L’ocelle Mare). Her new album ‘Arrest’ was recorded in one day and features playfull ballads that sound soft and dangerous like stolen kisses, sensual yet filled with joyous threats from the heart that disregard reason.
Yann Gourdon & Hervé Boghossian : Ce duo acoustique créé en février 2014, joue une musique imprégnée d’un minimalisme primitif à l’apparente aridité et qui révèle sa profondeur dans l’expérience d’écoute de l’espace.

Sat. 26 Jan > Rebel Up! Sebcat dj set @ Int. Film Festival Rotterdam – eclectic Mind The Gap night in WORM w/ Marcus Fjellström (SE), Felix Kubin (DE), Deadbeat (CA) & Lowriders crew (NL)

hello folks,

this saturday in the heart of Rotterdam, Rebel Up! Sebcat will be playing during the musical programme of the International Film Festival Rotterdam. Dutch underground music magazine Gonzo (circus) is curating the night under the eclectic *Mind the Gap* theme and with a fine line-up of international artists;

Marcus Fjellström
Is a Swedish composer who plays neo-classical electronica and dark ambient for labels such as Miasmah. He also makes special animation movies about the cartoonish characters Odboy & Erordog and will perform these clips with his sounds.

Felix Kubin & Martha Colburn
The sound of this peculiar fella from the Hamburg underground always amazes and he always operates outside the boundaries of genres; from weird go go pop to super crazy electro fun, anything goes! Martha Colburn will join him with her strong visuals that intertwine heavy social issue, such as bloodthirsty dictators, paranoid crystal meth junkies, corrupt police and whatnot. Kubin & Colburn already worked together on the clip Big Bug Attack -below- This new set surely will be ‘aussergewöhnlich’.

Big Bug Attack- Music by Felix Kubin from Martha Colburn on Vimeo.

Deadbeat
is the moniker of Scott Monteith, a Canadian-but-living-in-Berlin, the best place for someone who makes one of the best deep dub-techno at the moment. Deadbeat’s pulsating sound is right at home in Rotterdam true the gritty industrial and architecture-scaped feel of the city. Artist and geography seldom form such a unity as it will be on this night. Slowdancing is on!

Lowriders crew
These R’dam homeboys will close off the night with a heavy stew of dubby spheres of all things grime, step, trap and tech to make you move.

various Gonzo (circus) dj’s will play eclectic sounds in the bar downstairs, for all your listening or dancing pleasure.

Rebel Up! Sebcat is playing upstairs in the big room as part of the Gonzo (circus) crew and will play eclectic warmup sets inbetween the artists and some finetuned Rebel Up! global dance n bass sounds from the tropics and urban spheres later into the night.

Should be great night indeed, hope to see you there!
