This friday a real special night with 2 live concerts between punk jazz, psyche folk and many other outernational sounds. and a Rebel Up dj set before, between & afterparty.
Echoes Of Zoo (BE) Belgian jazz cat quartet with a animalistic punk jazz sound. Spearheaded by Nathan Daems (Black Flower), Falk Schrauwen, Bart Vervaeck and Lieven van Pée. Sometimes beastly violent, then again erudite & delicate. The generosity of the band works radically contagious on audiences. With echoes from the Balkans, the middle east but just as much from the nervous urban context. In other words, our village fanfare, which is an ode to the hybridity of Molenbeek. Listen here.
Cyril Cyril(CH) Ancestral sounds from the underbelly of psychedelic folk. The duo Cyril Cyril (of La Tene / Bongo Joe Records) produces sounds that make you long for a nomadic existence in unknown mountains. Armed with a banjo, guitar, drum kit and prophetic words, they take us like a phoenix to the dance floor. Listen to their album here.
Rebel Up will mix up raw punk with spiritual jazz to outernational psychedelic beauties and ethnic folklore.
21:00 BAR OPEN 22:00>23:30 Rebel Up 23:30>00:45 Echoes of Zoo 00:45>02:00 Cyril Cyril 02:00>05:00 Rebel Up
This friday, heavy cumbia action at the start of Recyclart Holidays, a true Peruvian Night with almost a complete Peruvian lineup! Tamos listo?
Chicha Amazonica & Peruvian bass!
Los Wemblers de Iquitos (PE)
The inventors of the Amazonian chicha cumbia, Los Wemblers are a group that started in the 70’s by a shoemaker/guitarist and his five sons in Iquitos, a city in the middle of the Amazon rainforest.This legendary group, especially rediscovered by Dengue Dengue Dengue, has just released a new EP in the spring and is exploring the Brussels bush. Selva-delic!
Dengue Dengue Dengue (PE) The most psychedelic electronic duo of Lima, who behind their crazy masks and vibrant colorful visuals bring massive Peruvian electro bass! With a mix of digital future, cumbia, tropical bass, dancehall, chicha from the 70s, they are in constant motion and constantly release new sounds with influences allover. Expect a set bridging the gap between Latin America, Africa & the West. One thing is sure: they’ll fire up the Recyclart!
ShuShupe (PE) The name of this female producer comes from one of the most venomous snakes in the Amazonian forest, makes its full sense on the dancefloor. She will inject toxic rhythms into your limbs and make the heat rise until you catch a tropical disease. Also she is part as activist of a growing LGTB scene and a woman on the forefront of the female Latin American electronic sound.
DJ’s SebCat & Cecilia Yzarra (Bxl/PE) This Belgian & Peruvian duo will do the outdoor warmup with cumbia, chicha, boogaloo, guaracha, criolla and much more Vinyl only, with lots of vintage dusty discs. SebCat needs no introduction but Cecilia Yzarra is one of the few female dj’s from Peru, with an incredible selection of vintage vinyl.
This Friday 22 July, a seriously amazing party at Recyclart Holidays festival which Rebel Up! helps organising.
A Special lineup with artists from various southern countries > Ghana, Burkina Faso, Mexico, Dominican Republic & exotic Belgium.
Mabiisi (GH/ BF) Mabiisi means “brothers of the same mother” both Frafra of northern Ghana and in Mooré language of the Mossi people of central Burkina Faso. The association of rural and urban music from both cultures (Ghanaian kologo music and African hip hop) was the desire of the Burkinabe social critical rapper Art Melody, which has now been fulfilled. He went into the studio with famous Ghanaian kologospeler Stevo Atambire and the catchy result testifies to natural intuition and chemistry between these two experienced musicians. The Akwaaba Music label from Ghana released the record and arranged a first tour of this duo with steamy stop at Recyclart! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGDunpRknvc
DJ Tetris (MX) from Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca state, Tetris has been around for quite some time in the national Mexican ‘tribal Guarachero and electro tribal’ scene originated in the northern city of Monterrey and characterized by a mix of cumbia, pre-Columbian rhythms and electronic beats and melodies of flute, accordion, guitar and later, synthesizers. With his distinct style, which exercised a mix of tribal Guarachero and Mexican fanfare,mariachiand nortena, Tetris found shelter at the N.A.A.F.I collective and label (alongside Lao, SieteCatorce, Mexican Jihad, Fausto Bahia …) from the capital DF, famous for their special events and situations that celebrate street and club culture. Tetris’ eclectic and ultra–danceable first album ‘Costeno’ came out on N.A.A.F.I in 2014. http://naafi.mx/ https://soundcloud.com/naafi/sets/dj-tetris-costeno
Munchi & Godwonder (DO/NL)
From Mexico we fly through the US, over the Dominican Republic to Rotterdam and Amsterdam for two party creators and producers of big format: Munchi and Godwonder. Munchi harvested much success a few years ago with genre-defining productions and DJ sets in its own typical style, stairs, moombahton, reggaeton, cumbia and baile funk fusions to solid dancefloor bombs. At its peak, which brought him to Diplo and Azalea Banks whose money he turned down, as he retired disillusioned from “the music business” to continue working in silence to his mission: continue to make music and help other young people with musical talent from the Dutch-Caribbean diaspora to develop their musical talents. He founded his own label Selegna records and now releases steady new work of himself and of others, such as Godwonder, who for the occasion joined the ranks for the presentation of a Dominican-Dutch sound that mixes gabba and bubbling with tarraxo, reggaeton and dembow. Munchi will undoubtedly surprise you with a whole new set of dirty latino trap, hypnotic merengue, sensual bachata and heavy moombahton. https://soundcloud.com/selegnasim https://selegnarecords.bandcamp.com/

On Friday 17th Rebel Up! helps organising a very special night at Recyclart during the always amazing Holidays festival.
as the title says > Puxa: Luso African Dance Night stands for a night filled with African dance music from the Lusophone countries such as Angola and Cabo Verde with styles like Semba, Funaná and more. Expect some serious tropical sounds impossible not to dance to.
‘Puxa’ means ‘pull’ in Portuguese (and not ‘push’ as would seem logical) and is used as a musical shout to pull your dance partner closer to you. Be ready to hear Puxa! night long!
Live concerts by Chalo Correia and Band from Angola via Lisboa, Tabanka from Cabo Verde via Rotterdam and the Celeste Mariposa dj’s from Lisboa.
Chalo Correiais Gonçalves António Correia, an Angolan musician and singer who grew up with Semba music in his blood. Chalo was born in Luanda, the capital of Angola, in 1968. During his boyhood he was fortunate to encounter musicians from revolutionary semba bands like Os Merengues, and Os Kiezos. He moved to Lisboa, Portugal in the beginning of the 90s and started to learn the classical guitar on autodidact and academic level with a strong will to make it by playing vintage Angolan music. His debut album ‘Kudihohola’ has just been released in June by Celeste/Mariposa Discos and is testimony to the development of his remarkable vision on Angolan music. Chalo Correia as a band retains the explosive, organic sounds of Semba and Rebita, but also remains in touch with the modern urban afro music scene in Lisbon. Semba is the swinging afro style from Angola, it comes from the word Masemba, which means ‘belly bumping’, a reference to some serious tight dancing. It’s the original base for styles like Brazilian Samba, Kizomba, Rebita, Kazukuta and it inspired the birth of urban Kuduro sound. Check his new video below for that sweet Semba sound.
Tabanka is a 7 piece Cabo Verdian band from Rotterdam, playing the fast swinging funaná music, thé dance sound of Cabo Verde. Their delirious funaná is ruled by the diatonic accordeon (gaita) and the ferrinho (metal stick) for some scraping rhythms and changing speeds. The group got its inspiration by generational musicians such as Bulimundo and Américo Brito but with their own modern interpretation and sound. Check it out! >
TheCeleste / Mariposadj duo run the famous Afro-Baile dance nights in Lisboa where they bring the Lusophone music culture together in sound. Their research is all about music from the former African Portuguese colonies; Angola, Kaapverdië, Guinee Bissau, Mozambique and Sao Tomé & Principé, digging up old vinyls on markets and visiting studio’s in Lisboa. They just started their own label Celeste Mariposa Disco’s on which they released Chalo Correia and for sure more Luso African releases will follow! Want to see how special they make it happen on their night? Check this video >
