We go Argentinian all the way on this night! This night is in collaboration with WORM.
DJ Pinchado (Julio Lozano) hails from Buenos Aires and is born and raised in the old harbour area of La Boca, home to local footie club Boca Juniors and birthplace of the elegant tango. None of that tango twisting tonight, but some seriously psychedelic cumbia! The sensual cumbia has become popular once again throughout all of South America and reason for this is a fresh wave of young artists who experiment with this old afro-influenced folk style. In Argentina a lot of artists have started creating experimental cumbia sounds, where dub, hiphop and electronica is added to this hefty stew. Pinchado’s special sound floats inbetween dubby spheres and electronic Boca beats as a very danceable cocktail! Excpect a live/dj set with the freshest dance music from Buenos Aires. !QUE CALOR!
Los Siquicos Litoraleños (AR)
From the outland countryside surrounding the small town Curuzú Cuatiá in the province Corrientes of North East Argentina, comes a exceedingly rare treat for the ears. Los Siquicos Litoraleños is a unique band formed in 2004. Originally an all improvisational freeform band, their music soon developed into an unclassifiable, highly original style incorporating elements of cumbia, subtle noise, lo-fi tape manipulation, chamamé (the popular folk music of Corrientes), the angular guitars of Beefheart’s Magic band and a rich variety of non-rock rhythms. At Rebel Up! they will play a special rocking set with trashy dancing in mind, ho ho! See some awesome viddy’s here:
The Rebel Up! DJ’s & VJ’s will guide the sound and the visuals of the night and will be aided by Rotterdam & Worm honcho Saxixa with his edgy Argentinian cumbia collection.
Tonight we will raise awareness and a donation box for Stichting Ombú, a Dutch organisation forcussed on Argentina which helps local Argentinian organisations to improve conditions in the poorest shantytowns. More info @ www.stichtingombu.nl
