Sat 1 June: Rebel Up warmup @ Derya Yildirim & Grup Simsek, Ekko, Utrecht

Cosmosis presents a series of concerts with the most special pop music from non-Western countries. What can you expect? No traditional world music, but urgent and danceable future music from distant countries.

Derya Yildirim & Grup Simsek
Two years after the great success of the single “Nem Kaldi”, psych-pop sensation Derya Yildirim & Grup Şimşek finally released the long-awaited debut album “Kar Yağar” on Bongo Joe Records. And it was well worth the wait! The distinctive sound of the bağlama, the great voice of Derya Yildirim and the band makes the whole more modern, more danceable and more psychedelic. A hymn for the rich history of the Anatolian folk rock, restored and translated into the 21st century. They are coming to Ekko Utrecht just a week after the album comes out. Not to be missed!


Warmup & cooling down tunes in Turkish, Anatolian and Levantine sounds by Rebel Up SebCat.

Sat. 30 June > Rebel Up! Soundclash & A/V Club present global lo-fi night; Alvarius B (US) + Sublime Frequencies dj set & Riquetik’s goodbye party

Hello all!
Time for a fresh Rebel Up! Soundclash night again > a special globla lo-fi night together with the fine folks of A/V Club. We have Alan Bishop as a special guest, who will play his Alvarius B solo project and do a Sublime Frequencies dj set afterwards.  Sadly, it is also Riquetik’s goodbye party as he is leaving Rebel Up! & A’dam to go pursue his academic career in Budapest.

Here’s the roll > >

 

ALVARIUS B
Rare Acoustic Solo Performance (starts 23:30)
Alvarius B. is the acoustic guitar/singer-songwriter alias of Alan Bishop, a major player/seminal figure of the American underground – a founding member of Sun City Girls and the Sublime Frequencies record label (Omar Souleyman/Group Doueh/Group Inerane etc.). This project sees Alan unbalance and entertain using a twisted song cycle blend of humour, politics and heartbreak with melodies old, broken and new – a lethal cocktail for the senses.

SUBLIME FREQUENCIES DJ set
Sublime Frequencies is a record label and collective with explorers dedicated to focus on acquiring and expo­sing obscure sights and sounds from modern and traditional urban and rural frontiers.

REBEL UP! SOUNDCLASH CREW
Especially for this night, the Rebel Up! crew will play eclectic vintage & lo-fi sounds from all corners and ages of the globe, from folk to pop, psychedelica, rock and backwards. Accompanied by grainy, vintage visuals to make sure there’s never a dull moment on the dancefloor

 

Profits on the night will go to NGO Bhakti Luhur in Malang, Eastern Java, which takes care of handicapped children. One of the aid workers is a dutchman who runs the excellent Madrotter Treasure Hunt blog, all about Indonesian pop, rock and folk music from the past with quality uploads.
