Wed 8 May: Nightshop party w/ Meridian Brothers (CO), Capitol K (UK), Hugo Menzes (Sofrito), Funky Bompa & The Wild, support by Rebel Up! Leblanc

RU Meridian

NIGHTSHOP PARTY !MERIDIAN BROTHERS, straight from Colombia, are ready to bring their mischievous blend of Latin rhythms and psychedelic grooves to Belgium for the first time. Straddling the line between new and old, this quintet is the creation of Eblis Álvarez, one of the key figures of the experimental music scene in Bogota. A true avant-garde guitar player and composer he also plays in Mario Galeano’s band Frente Cumbiero and was involved in the recording of Ondatrópica. In September 2012 Soundway Records released his album ‘Desperanza’ that features ‘Guaracha U.F.O’, recently selected by Gilles Peterson as his #1 track of 2012.

http://www.meridianbrothers.com/CAPITOL K aka Kristian Craig Robinson has traversed a spectrum of electronic aesthetics throughout 13 years and 5 albums with releases on Planet Mu, XL & Faith & Industry. His 6th album Andean Dub from 2012 is an experimental cumbia masterpiece, influenced by a long road trip through Peru, Bolivia and Argentina. http://www.capitolk.com/

HUGO MENDEZ‘ dj style is a unique blend of African, Caribbean and Latin rhythms – a percussive explosion that includes heavy Afro grooves, old school mambo, tropical disco, bouncing samba, calypso funk and heavy cumbia, bringing vintage styles up to date with exclusive dubplate edits and a contemporary club slant.
After some digging trips across the Caribbean, he has put together several top albums for leading record labels, like Strut, Jazzman, Soundway and Nascente. Hugo also produces the cult Rhythmagic Orchestra project with Nostalgia 77, runs the Sofrito Specials label and makes the tropical selections for 22Tracks in Paris.

http://www.sofrito.co.uk/FUNKY BOMPA & THE WILD are tropical music heavy weights from Brussels, crate diggers and vinyl collectors of all things funky, groovy and tropical, from Africa, the Carribean and Latin-America. Mostly old, dusty and rare sounds from a variety of styles like boogaloo, cumbia, calypso, afro funk, tipica, merengue etc.

http://www.funkybompa.com/Recyclart resident & Nightshop Party co-programmer DJ LEBLANC (Rebel Up! collective) will throw a special opening set of Mexican cumbia sonidera, so get in early for an immersion in the suburban vibes of Puebla, DF & Monterreyyyyyyy…
