Join us for a Rebel Up Records saturday at APERODROOM SEE U from 2pm. Relaxing time around our guinguette & food trucks. Album release party of “Awakening Spirits” by Tropikal Camel.
Tropikal Camel (IS / Berlin Arabstazy) Special guest is Tropikal Camel who will live present his new album “Awakening Spirits”, released just before summer on Brussels label Rebel Up Records. The new urban sound of Middle Eastern/North African futurism, an original fusion between traditional Arabic music with cutting edge electronic sounds. It is a quest for a new identity, one which has been released by colonialist thinking. One that has respect to the past but with heads up to the future, urban but tribal, dramatic but minimal, full of contradictions but keeping the balance. Electronic music that has a meaning and a story. https://tropicalcamel.bandcamp.com/album/awakening-spirits https://soundcloud.com/tropikalcamel https://www.rockybb.org/ Interview + mixtape on Tsugi blog (in French) > http://tiny.cc/qq72bz
