◊ FANNA-FI-ALLAH
This seven-man company from Pakistan & Canada is celebrating the Pakistani qawwali tradition – an ancient form of Sufi religious music from Asia – such as Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan did in the 80s-90s. And although they have been active for 20 years, the band seems to break through this year with a wider audience.

◊ RUDRESH MAHANTHAPPA & the Indo-Pak Coalition
Pitchfork recently described his style as ‘jaw-dropping’ and called him ‘one of the finest saxophonists going’. AllMusic also lauded and titled: “One of the strongest voices of the jazz scene.” His latest album ‘Agrima’ reflects ‘the vibrant presence of Indian rhythmic and melodic elements in a charged, modern improvisational framework born of the New York jazz scene’.

Sat 13 June > Rebel Up! SebCat @ Out Loud night, Beursschouwburg, Bxl w/ Orchestre Du Mont-Plaisant (UK/FR) &Mocambo (BR/BE)

Hello Brussels!

10990007_10153255344825782_3334741651309786676_o

This saturday a sweet night at Beursschouwburg together with kunstencenter De Vooruit from Ghent as part of the yearly Out Loud festival.
British afropunk-poppers Zun Zun Egui sadly had to cancel their show, but Rebel Up! helped arranging some fine replacements for them, 2 bands even, yay!

We´re proud to present French-British outfit Orchestre Du Mont-Plaisant and local Brussels & Ghent afro-heroes Mocambo to fill this night with their special global sounds.

Orchestre Du Mont-Plaisant specialises in all global styles with a heavy psychedelic sauce. They bring together world rhythms and moody cinematic moments playing blues and dance pieces, with notable influences from Congolese Soukous, African highlife, Ethiopian jazz, cumbia, séga and a whiff of Middle-East and Turkish Psychedelia to make your head & body spin.


Mocambo
will shake you up with their heavy Afro-Brazilian & urban Afrobeat rhythms. It´s the project by rapper Le Tagarel and composer Tartaruga and joined by our own Brussels artist Témé Tan and several other master musicians. Their strong sound takes you from Angola to Brasil in many colours and spheres. Get ready to rumble with this wild band!

Before, between & after global tunes from around the world by Rebel Up! SebCat

and oh yes, IT´S FREE IN!!!!!

Schedule:
22:00 Mocambo

Sat 6 Dec > polyrhythmic dance night @ Salle Rogier Bxl Rebel Up! djs w/ Durian Brothers, High Wolf, Tav Exotic, Pizza Noise Mafia & Fyoelk

10440881_880215235352040_3206224592314889716_n
a long party night at Salle Rogier with experimental dance music, abstract techno, polyrhythmic, crooked acid etc.

THE DURIAN BROTHERS (DE)
//////polyrhythmic bounce loops \\\\\\
After their much welcomed live appearance at this year’s Petit Fays Festival, The Durian Brothers finally make it to Brussels! Assembled around the SALON DES AMATEURS club (Düsseldorf) a few years ago, playing prepared turntables, a sequencer and an array of effects, the trio blend polyrhythmic, Afro-beat inspired percussion with noise-saturated aspects of electronic minimalism. Dense and dance-oriented, this is music made for the live club setting, immediate and intense, but flows with an artistic and purposeful bent. After three EPs on Diskant, a split EP with Ensemble Skalectrik (an Ekoplekz side project) on FatCat Records, and a first Mini-LP “DAS MACHT MODERN” on swedish Kontra-Musik just recently, its time for a live-show, that ranges from click&cutting woody trance to dub-filled frenzy without missing a beat.

TAV EXOTIC (VZ/BE)
MIKEY “WEIRD DUST” CRABBé
ERNIE “BEAR BONES, LAY LOW” GONZáLEZ
//////Synth drenched acid mayhem with a noisy sauce \\\\\\

PIZZA NOISE MAFIA (FR/BE)
//////Funky minimal 6-step\\\\\\
An electronic duo composed of TG Gondard and Carrageenan. Their music is a cold and minimal funk, rhythmed by catchy acid analog modulations. A demonic war machine that will drench the most demanding dancefloors in sweat! This night will see the release of their first LP ‘i canti della malavita’ on the Slaaploos label!

FYOELK (DE) reveals the adventures by two legs of freeform acidic beat duo Laser Poodle, residing in Antwerp. His sound explorations have recently returned to the track format, utilizing MIDI technology. Driven by a love for the foundations of house music, polymorphous synth sequences and tribal percussion blend into sonic wormholes. Fyoelk runs the tape label Stenze Quo.

HIGH WOLF (FR) possesses a natural-born ability to zero in on the tones most conducive to inducing transcendental states. He will play a special live set of outerwordly psychedelic buzz beats with a rigid afro guitar vibe. Be there early to indulge yourselves into this!

SPACE LADY (US)
T H E S P A C E L A D Y is a street-performing singer based in Colorado, USA. Originally beginning on the streets of Boston in the late 70s and has recently begun playing again She has travelled through the stars to bring us the most wonderfully alien take on electronic street-song, channelled through a soul that has taken in UFO sightings, hiding from the US government, homelessness, communing, hitchhiking, and over two decades of playing the street corners, storefronts, and subways of America. A Casio battery-powered keyboard, vocal mic and echo & phaser controls are all the ingredients required for a live experience to align the spheres.
