Sun 16.08 > Rebel Up & Friends @ Saintklet Summer weekend #1, Saintklet terrace, Bxl

This weekend starts the programme of the new Saintklet outdoor terrace!

Saintklet wants to play a pivotal role in the development of the canal area, together with local institutions. The core idea for creating this space was that we wanted to keep it public, meaning free for everyone to use.
This crisis has taught us that safe public spaces are in decline.
Local initiatives and citizen collectives have to work together to make sure they stay accessible, even during a pandemic.

On sunday from 17:00 – 22:00 we will do a takeover with Rebel Up & Friends with a sweet local lineup!

New release on Rebel Up Records 27.05 > Schroothoop – Klein Gevaarlijk Afval (pre-order vinyl now)

hey all,

New release coming up on Rebel Up Records this wednesday 27.05
the debut mini album Klein Gevaarlijk Afval by Brussels world jazz trio schroothoop.

mysterious world jazz with DIY instruments

Brussels-based trio schroothoop (Dutch for ‘junk yard’)
is formed by Rik Staelens (wind & string instruments), Timo Vantyghem (bass & clarinet) and Margo Maex (percussion).
Their tribal oriented debut mini-album titled ‘Klein Gevaarlijk Afval’ (Small Dangerous Waste) features homemade instruments built from lost and found objects like scrap wood, old metal or anything that would end up in a landfill. The band’s music is infused with sounds from around the world orchestrated by PVC flute melodies, jerry can beats and washtub bass lines.

Mysterious world jazz with Northern African chaabi, South American reggaeton, Eastern oriental melodies and Afro-Cuban rhythms, resulting in a danceable and hypnotic trip through the Brussels melting pot.

Post production and mixed by David ‘Dijf’ Sanders and mastered by Jürgen de Blonde (KOHN).

Artwork by Eva Lynen on screen-printed on cardboard covers in the studio of the Brussels collective Hashët. Limited to 15 handmade vinyl copies only. Sold out already, but end of June we expect a proper vinyl release of the album in bigger numbers. Available digital on our Bandcamp, as well as the official vinyl pre-order at discounted price for 1 week.

new Rebel Up Nightshop online (April) > #71 Quarantine show with 10 albums of the month!

This month’s Rebel Up Nightshop show (April 2020, via Radio Campus Bruxelles) is done in quarantine, home recorded as a big 2 hour mixtape with 10(!) albums of the month. Look out for some current candid COVID19 spoken word soundbites throughout the show as awareness or social political counteraction.

Starting with a psychedelic oriental tune by Baharat on Batov Records and followed by the new Ethiofunk-meets-dub album ‘Yene Mircha’ by Hailu Mergia on Awesome Tapes From Africa. After this, Argentinian outsider band Los Siquicos Literalenos and their experimental chamame folk sound out on Hive Mind Records and followed by the reissue of Peruvian Amazonian cumbia band Ranil Y Su Conjunto on Analog Africa, rare recordings from the 1970’s. We travel to Turkey via German Turkish migrant communities on the Uzelli Electro Saz compilation with psychedelic folk from 70’s & 80’s and followed by contemporary northern Greek folk music album by Evritiki Zygia on Teranga Beat label. Then we travel to Morocco, to the Master Musicians of Jajouka & Bachir Attar reissue on vinyl by Zehra label from a 1991 recording and we travel up into the Iberian peninsula for the compilation Codex Futura Vol.1 on Samain Music digital label with contemporary electronic folk music from Spain & Portugal. El Buho brings his new electronic latino album ‘Ramas’ on Wonderwheel label and we end the show in oriental electronic rave sounds via French duo Ko Shin Moon (‘Leila Nova’) on Akuphone and Palestinian duo Zenobia (‘Halak Halak’) on Crammed Discs.
