Sat 6 Jan: Club Méditerranéen curated by Rebel Up ! w/ Tropikal Camel & Rafael Aragon @ Le Sucre, Lyon (FR)

a night curated by Rebel Up @ Le Sucre club, Lyon, rooftop culture & club!

A rich musical heritage and community, the territory of the Mediterranean is a breeding ground in which many new artists find their inspiration. East and West have never been so close when the sounds of Tunis, Istanbul or Cairo and the electronic diaspora seize electronics to revisit and transform their oriental influences.

For this first Club Méditerranéen night of the year, we can expect electro-Arab sets of rough and hypnotizing sounds by Rebel Up SebCat, Tropikal Camel and Rafael Aragon.

▬▬▬▬▬▬ LINE-UP ▬▬▬▬▬▬

» Tropikal Camel (Shouka / Jerusalem/Berlin)
Behind the ironically exotic alias of Tropikal Camel lies Roi Assaya, producer and MC from Jerusalem. He adopted this artist’s name when he moved to Berlin in 2013 and began a musical and political approach. As a true cultural archivist, he collects traditional music from North Africa and the Middle East, then recomposes these polyrhythms on Ableton, precipitates them in a future bass climate and “shamanic sound textures”.

» Rafael Aragon (Babylon Records / Global Hybrid / Paris/Bxl – FR/AL)
Rafael Aragón is a DJ / producer whose roots extend into Arab and Latin cultures, growing up in the Parisian suburbs in a cosmopolitan world that has shaped it. He started producing beats at the age of 20, obsessed by the idea of mixing folk music with more electronic patterns and creating a balance between organic and synthetic.

» Rebel Up SebCat (Rebel Up / Bruxelles – BE)
SebCat breaks the boundaries to represent youth and socio-political developments from around the world, through cosmopolitan music of the diaspora merged with (inter)local traditions.

Ko Shin Moon

* Analog synthesizers, drum Machines & Oriental lutes *
Mixing instrumental and digital compositions, contemporary electronic sounds, traditional music and samples from field recordings, Ko Shin Moon blurs all the boundaries. Soundtrack of a patchwork crossing, the first LP of the group, released on the label Akuphone, transports the listener to hybrid territories, fantasy soundscapes and colorful collages. The time of a break, reversing analogical listening in digital synthesis, this funny duo turns the listener into a dancer on an Algerian acid, an electric belly dance, the Greek psyche, the Turkish disco, the Lebanese trap , Thai dance or Lao shoegaze.

Samcha (L’Oreille Percée)
Samcha aka L’Oreille Percée collects, collects and, as far as possible, informs the musical media of Thailand, Indonesia, Japan or the Chinese diaspora with a singular detour for Cote d’Ivoire. Ethnologist in partnership with Khun Narin Sin Phin Prayuk during his extra-Asian excursions, this Pierced Ear seeks to trace an itinerary for the ear which, beyond the West, probes music publishing around the world. Listening to what others are listening to, without prejudging what they love, who they are, here is a program that it becomes, today more than ever, possible to achieve.

Cheb Gero
Passionate about music and incorrigible collector, Cheb Gero, clears and digs the musical worlds. In 2015, in an “archive” spirit and driven by a desire to “explore the world in music”, he launched Akuphone. In an approach related to musical archeology, he seeks to highlight the work of artists, musicians, singers and singers who, in the so-called Western countries, are unknown or have fallen into the oversight. Far from a romantic or fetishistic vision of non-Western music, the goal of the label is to articulate these cultural productions to their historical and political context and to restore them in their social and cultural conditions of appearance.
