Sat 2 June > Giraffes & Penguins #7, Au Quai, Bxl

yes yes, another Giraffes & Penguins party, #7, and perhaps our last for this season at Au Quai.

🌶🎵 GL🌎BAL UNDERGR🌎UND 🎵🌶

For this 7th musical night trip, we are very happy to welcome the shaman of global beats Rafael Aragon, who will hypnotize you with his secret and irresistible frequencies. Ofcourse hosted by Rebel Up SebCat and Le Grand Méchant Loop will move your bodies and souls through the wildest sounds from the global underground!

〰🔅〰 Rafael Aragon 〰🔅〰
The music of Rafael Aragon is cut for the dance floor, rich in bass but delicate, maximalist and highly psychedelic. With a touch of magic inspired by shamanic rites and Afro-Latin and Oriental folk traditions. Mystic chimes, tribal drums and voodoo manners respond to big kicks, hypnotic basslines and electronic batucadas.
With his many live and DJ sets in clubs, free parties and festivals all over Europe and South America, Rafael has made a name for himself as a producer, remixer and DJ on the electronic and world music scene with his powerful “global rave” sound.

Fri 25 May > Rebel Up @ Sismique & Sacré party w/ Global Hybrid & Dengue Dengue Dengue @ Bazaar Club, Bxl

yes yes, this friday night, Peruvian producer duo Dengue Dengue Dengue is coming once more to Brussels, at Bazaar club, invited by the Global Hybrid crew!

Sismique & Sacré is the new madness of Global Hybrid Records, a great ceremony that combines the telluric depth of infra-bass with the cosmic vibrations of our third eye. An irresistible jolt that will shake you from the plantar arch to the pineal gland. An event that will highlight the wealth of new South American electronic music. A hallucinatory journey along the electrified backbone of the Andean Cordillera, a mystical wandering in the luxuriance of the Amazon jungle and beyond …

As usual, the room will be redecorated by us, with a light show and a psychedelic mapping, and as always a nice cocoon arranged as a chill-out, for tired legs and intimate discussions.

With prestigious guests, eminent representatives of the digital cumbia and new Afro-Latin music such as Dengue Dengue Dengue! At their side, the youngest of Global Hybrid Records, the talented Belgian-Bolivian producer Susobrino, who just released a resounding first EP last month. His show mixes indigenous folk instruments, electronic hacks and recordings from his travels in Bolivia! Fresh from a 6-month tour in South America, the duo Fanfara Electronica (co-founders of Global Hybrid), will present their new creations, imbued with Andean mysticism, electronica downtempo and relentless Rave moose. Faithful companion of the crew and agitator number 1 of the world music scene in Belgium, SebCat of Rebel Up will treat us with a selection of the latest nuggets from the global underground.

Performance DJing, video, 3D
In memory of Logobi :  an installation about the collective black amnesia in France. by Christelle Oriyi, dj, producer, freelance, sound designer and french critic.

Oriyi proposes a multidisciplinary project combined with DJing, video and 3D where she shows the hybrid and unprecedented nature of the urban Logobi music style at the crossroads between Belgian hard-tech and Ivory Coast’s offbeat coupé décaler. It’s the story of an immediate contemporary history that has been voluntarily forgotten. That of the Logobi dance, born in the early 2000s in the neighborhoods of Abidjan in Ivory Coast.

21h > 22h
Concert
MC Black Odhiambo (KY)
Charismatic slammer and rapper, Blak Odhiambo lives in Kibera, the gigantic ghetto south Nairobi, capital of Kenya. Kibera is a lively neighbourhood, from where a good share of the artistic energy of the Kenyan capital emerges. He draws his inspiration from reggae, Kenyan music, rap, but also in unlikely encounters with the sandstone of his urban wanderings. He will present his new multimedia project: Panthera Leo.

22h > 23h30
Dj Raph & Nita (KY/ AT)
Producer, electronic musician and dj from Nairobi. On Sacred Groves, Dj Raph trains complex electronic music and Pan African ethnographic field recordings. His live set is a virtuoso juggling of beats and voices of the past. Sampling and looping on the fly, he creates hypnotic moments of insight into a timeless universe that blends modern electronic bass, African chants, and traditional rhythms. He avoids kitschy or clichéd clothing, but seeks out the essence of African dance music. Live visuals by Austrian VJ Nita.
