Fri 27 july > Rebel Up @ Giraffes & Penguins w/ Maga Bo, l’Uzinne, Bxl

🌶🎵 GL🌎BAL UNDERGR🌎UND 🎵🌶

Giraffes, penguins and other global party animals, get ready! An amazing musical globetrotter will bring us the perfect vibes to go with this tropical Belgian summer!

Relentlessly traveling the world as DJ, producer and ethnomusicologist, MAGA BO is on tour in Europe this summer and will make a stop at L’uZinne. His performances are so eclectic and impregnated with so many musical cultures that we cannot predict what will happen. All we can say is that he knows hundreds of ways to make us sweat 🙂

But that’s not all! Four other global DJ’s will also guide you through this global underground trip: LeBlanc from Rebel Up, Radio Frappè, Dragan and Le Grand Méchant Loop.

Expect also to get lost in a crazy labyrinth set up by HeyLàBas and to enjoy a nice pay-as-you-like meal prepared by Up Cooking.

Maastricht originated project, the duo from Radio Frappè is now settled in Brussels to spread the good vibes. Radio hosts, event curators and DJs, they will make you bounce on the global sounds that make their universe: from brazilian mpb and sambass to heavy african rythms, from tasty dub to carribean melodies, Radio Frappè will make you travel through time and space, and deconstruct the notion of borders.

〰🔅〰 Dragan (Radio Panik) 〰🔅〰
Since the age of 16, Dragan has been listening to and playing a broad range of genres, from jazz to techno, from afrodisco classics to global beats. Not belonging to any particular tribe, he shares a sense of freedom and escapism with some of his heroes such as Dj Marcelle and Lefto. After his break, he’s been busy spinning in various places such as Urban Spree Berlin, Esperanzah! festival, Vk Concerts, LaVallée, Giraffes and Penguins, Bonnefooi… Every first Saturday of the month, Dragan hosts a show on Radio Panik 105.4 FM, named Flux Tendu. As the name suggests, this is an exploration through thin relations between tracks, a sort of musical cadavre exquis.

〰🔅〰 Le Grand Méchant Loop 〰🔅〰

Saturday 21st nov @ OCCII, A’dam; Rebel Up! Soundclash *Rio vs Sampa Brazilian cidade clash* w/ Maga Bo(US/BR), DJ Tudo(BR) & Process Rebel (US)

Wahey, next Rebel Up! party coming up!

This one will be a *Rio vs Sampa Brazilian cidade clash*. We will guests from Brazil’s 2 biggest and most famous cities; Rio de Janeiro & Sao Paulo. Anyone familiar with these cities will know it; these cities are overly vibrant with music, culture and liveliness! For that very same reason they are also each other’s nemesis and created some good old rivalry. The Carioca’s (inhabitants of Rio) think themselves as the most life enjoying people while the Paulista’s (inhabitants of Sampa -or Sao Paulo-) see themselves as the centre of Brazilian culture. Oh dear, but on this night the rivalry will have a delicious taste where Maga Bo and DJ Tudo will be giving their best sounds.

Maga Bo (US/BR/Rio) is the messenger of things exotic, broken and mashed up. expect a live dj set with furious bass line that will wobble on capoeira rhythms. Ever touring the world as a soundman and general globalteer, it will be his 3rd time(!) already at Rebel Up! but it’s always an honour to have him. Both times he played with us, it was a FULL house! Check out his site or myspace for sounds & mixes.

DJ Tudo (BR) hails from Sampa and this is only the first time he comes to Holland! His sound is a varied mix of samba, bossa nova, capoeira , forro and other Brazilian dance styles with some sweet breakbeat and electro bass added for full effect.

During the night, your faithfull Rebel Up! crew will take care of globetrotting dance sounds, cult spheres and colourfull visuals. We also will be joined by US ex-patriate Process Rebel, living in A’dam nowadays. He’ll bring a full clash of rootsical mashups with a global ‘up yours’ attitude 🙂

We also will have a special photo exhibition by Enno de Jong (A’dam, 1967), who has made an amazing serie about the street Children of São Martinho, Rio. This exhibition is a combined project of 1991 and a recent revisit in 2009. See below the photo of Marina in 1991 & 2009. www.PositiveIndustries.nl

As you know, we dig the charity cause and we have again selected Brazilian organisation IBISS, who do multiple street projects in the Rio area. We’ll go around with a collection box during the night or you can donate at the door!
