Sat 19 March > Rebel Up! Soundclash night @ Beursschouwburg Bxl

Rebel Up 19 maart

this saturday 19th we organise a special Rebel Up! Sounclash night in the Brussels Beursschouwburg.
a global underground night with live sets and dj sets of ethnic beats through digital folklore, dub and psychedelia.

X.A.Cute (DE) presents Shards
Founded in the early noughties in Berlin, X.A.Cute has been active in different shapes and styles, but the roots always remained the same: dub and hip hop, spiced up with whatever caught the attention of core members, DJs and producers Wuzi Khan and Freak Ass E. Over the years X.A.Cute has recorded and played with artists as (among others) Mike Ladd, Miss Red, Mark Stewart, Infinite Livez, The Shadowhuntaz, Guillermo E. Brown, and Ari Up, with releases on labels as Echo Beach, Moniker Eggplant, Anorakism and Meerkat Recordings. In Summer 2014 MPC-wizzard Guvibosh joined the line-up after moving from Jerusalem to Berlin, adding his russian percussion and a selection of bass heavy beats to the mix. After playing a number of successful club and festival gigs this combination resulted in the digital relase “Shards”. A mirror of the current live-show, it features a storm of samples and scales selected from records and musical cultures around the world, grounded by bass heavy riddims and a subtle dub treatment, including an (authorized) version of Mark Stewart & The Maffia’s “Liberty City” and one of the (nowadays) rare vocal performance from Wuzi Khan. No computers were used on stage or while recording, with about 50% of sequenced beats from the trusted Korg electribe, and 50% of the songs freely tapped in real time and space.
Wuzi Khan: Electribe, Dr. Sample, FX, vocals
Guvibosh: MPS, Kaoss FX
Freak Ass E: EMU Sampler, MIcrokorg, FX, cowbell

Guess What (FR/UK)
Spearheaded by the alter ego’s Luke Warmcop and Graham Mushnik, this duo specializes in obscure metaphysical music and global soundtracks with electronic organs, synthesizers, melodica and electronics that take you through Russia, the Middle East and the 70’s *Giallo* cinema of Italy. Their most recent LP “Al Khawarizmi” is an amazing homage to the 8th century Arabic astronomer Al Khawarizmi who invented algebra and studied the solar system. It’s filled with Middle Eastern, Persian, Indo-Pakistani and Northern African psychedelic grooves from the 60’s and 70’s, belly dance beats enhanced by modern drum sequencing, samples and synthesizers. Expect a heavy dose of eastern psychedelics that will make your mind and body swirl into a higher state.

Joxaren (SE)
David Giese aka Joxaren is a Swedish musician with a background in Punk/Dub/Hip Hop/ Electro. Deejaying since the mid-nineties, Joxaren has been focusing on hybrids and intersections of musical styles and fitting it into his peculiar bouncy Skweee sound. Relentlessly hoovering the remotest stitches of the www for the best Tallava wedding jams, trading the latest Manele compilations from the local Romanian beggar on the corner, searching through Egyptian pop charts and of course adding all the news from his fellow Scandinavian Skweee-makers, Joxaren finds ingredients for his motley blend of sounds.

Rebel Up! DJ’s (Bxl)
hosts of the night and no secret to the global underground nightlife in Brussels, organising many different concert & dance nights in venues such as Recyclart, Bonnefooi and Les Ateliers Claus. These dj’s are true selectors, remixers and digital diggers, always looking for that special global beat hidden away from the mainstream ‘world’ music. From the latest electronic beats to traditional folklore, there is a place for all of these in their colourful dj sets. Select global, play local!

Sat 27 Sept > Rebel Up! Soundclash @ Salle Rogier Bxl, w/ special guests Capitol K & Rafael Aragon

Rebel-Up_2013_12_A6_web-poster

From september onwards, we will have new Rebel Up! Soundclash resident night every 2 months at Salle Rogier hosted by SebCat & LeBlanc. Every time with special international guests to make it even more special for all of you, bringing new global sounds to Brussels!


To kick off our first party night at Salle Rogier, we invite two special international guests for a night of cumbiatronics, global bass & digital global folk pop > Capitol K and Rafael Aragon!

 

Capitol K (UK – live)
The wizard producer of the Total Refreshment Studios and band member of Archie Bronson Outfit (Domino Records) will be performing his latest release “Andean Dub”. A collection of Cumbia Psych and Lofi, born of K’s wanderings through South America. An inspirational, original mix of deep Andean cumbia bass, analogue synth textures, sparkling percussion and spaced out live charango playing. Just check his amazing electronic cumbia sound below!

 

Rafael Aragon (FR – dj/live)
Rafael Aragón aka Rafiralfiro has latin and arabic roots but was born and raised between downtown Paris and its multicultural suburbs. Rafael’s eclectic taste and versatile take on music production, got him obsessed with the idea of mixing traditional folk music with contemporary electronic club music, looking for the perfect balance between the organic and synthetic, the past and the future. Rafael Aragon’s music is mainly club oriented, with heavy basses, infectuous rhythms, yet delicate, well balanced and highly psychedelic. You better be warned!

 

Rebel Up! dj’s SebCat & Leblanc
As residents and hosts of the night, Sebcat & LeBlanc will warm up the night and keep it going till late. Expect as always a diverse and eclectic mix of tunes from around the world. Global bass, digital folk pop, any good beats from the global south, rooted in local traditions… Select global, play local!

 

Visuals all night by VJ Alerta (CL/NL)
Latin inspired visuals by this Chilean wonder girl, who colourfully mashes traditional and modern latin spheres together into a warm digital psychedelic experience for the eye.

Sat 6 July @ de Vinger, Den Haag > Rebel Up! Soundclash party

rebel up 6 july 2013
Hi Up the Rebels,

Our selection has grown wilder and once again with all types of mashups between Soca, Soukous, Cumbia, global rough bass, the groove of old skool and new skool Afro-Funk, Desert blues, festive Chaabi, mad Indian drum n bass and a bit of spicy Balkan beat here and there.

As usual the enjoyment is also based on the fact that your feet won’t be moving for no reason, the benefits of the night will go this time to Women’s Initiative for Gender Justice, a NGO struggling for the changes of mentality and mainly for the governments leaving consciously open sexual crimes unpunished. If you won’t to know more about this organization, you can go to www.iccwomen.org or on their twitter account @4GenderJustice.

We hope to see you there to share some real fun times together.
Sound delicatessen await…
