We’ll dive together into the infinite richness of arab music and its evolution from traditional forms to contemporary and wild electronic sounds.  

Our special guests:

AMMAR 808 is the electronic alter-ego of the Brussels based producer Sofyann Ben Youssef (Bargou 08, Kel Assouf). With songs from the Targ, Gnawa,and Raï histories and a TR-808 kicks alongside a distorted guimbri, gasba flutes and zokra bagpipes. His debut album ‘Maghreb United’ on Glitterbeat was a top10 album that changed the perception of contemporary Maghreb music. At the moment he is working on his second album, so expect a lot of new sounds!
LISTEN HERE

Ghoula is a tunisian self-made musician and producer. As a producer and multi-instrumentalist, Ghoula creates genre-defying sets through both acoustics and samples. His debut album ‘Hlib el Ghoula’ was released on Shouka label and is now preparing his second album.

Fri 13 Sept: Rebel Up Records evening, 10inch vinyl release Satanic Samba Trio (BR) @ Recyclart, Bxl

Satanique Samba Trio: it’s not really a trio and they don’t play samba but they are quite satanic…. this mythical Brazilian band from the capital Brasilia performs funny, pertinent and surprising sound collages, an ongoing investigation into the aesthetic deconstruction of Brazil’s most popular musical traditions.

Friday September 13th, 2019 will be remembered in Music History for the release of their new 10inch vinyl “Mais Bad”, a conceptual sequel of the 2015 release “Mó Bad”. “Mais Bad” is a new collection of low fidelity bagatelles, forged into existence by Satanique Samba Trio’s thirst for aesthetical deconstruction. All instruments in this 10-track vinyl have been recorded with the same cheap cell phone from the early 2000’s. It is meant to sound desperate, harsh and absolutely surreal. A little over the top, maybe? Yeah, but hey: that’s just how a country in crisis should look and sound like. Right?

Listen here to “Mais Bad” on our Bandcamp, and see new videoclip below, warning: graphic medical images 🙂

Friday 19 July: Rebel Up @ Recyclart Holidays with concerts Echoes Of Zoo + Cyril Cyril, Recyclart, Bxl

yes yes, Recyclart Holidays festival is back again!
in the new venue with the renovated rooms and big pavé courtyard. food, music, drinks and more.

This friday a real special night with 2 live concerts between punk jazz, psyche folk and many other outernational sounds. and a Rebel Up dj set before, between & afterparty.

Echoes Of Zoo (BE)
Belgian jazz cat quartet with a animalistic punk jazz sound. Spearheaded by Nathan Daems (Black Flower), Falk Schrauwen, Bart Vervaeck and Lieven van Pée. Sometimes beastly violent, then again erudite & delicate. The generosity of the band works radically contagious on audiences. With echoes from the Balkans, the middle east but just as much from the nervous urban context. In other words, our village fanfare, which is an ode to the hybridity of Molenbeek. Listen here.

Cyril Cyril (CH)
Ancestral sounds from the underbelly of psychedelic folk. The duo Cyril Cyril (of La Tene / Bongo Joe Records) produces sounds that make you long for a nomadic existence in unknown mountains. Armed with a banjo, guitar, drum kit and prophetic words, they take us like a phoenix to the dance floor. Listen to their album here.

Rebel Up will mix up raw punk with spiritual jazz to outernational psychedelic beauties and ethnic folklore.
