We are super happy to welcome the amazing duo of DJs / producers UMOJA from the Netherlands. For several years, UMOJA has been relentlessly switching between DJ performances on major stages and recent studio & recordings sessions with local artists in Uganda and Kenya. Combining a deep knowledge of roots music from Africa, Latin America, Antilles & beyond with a great sense of creativity, they have released a large amount of edits & own productions that leaves no global underground party animal indifferent 🐧🐧🐧
And that’s not all folks – we’ll take care of your eyes also 🙂 Our beloved “visual wizard” Maria Ilia will bring this musical trip to the next level with a special video mapping performance.

On sunday 9 July, freshly arrived from a heavy Exit festival weekend in Serbia, we’ll be playing a duo Rebel Up! set at Georgie’s Wundergarten festival in the alternative Ruigoord village (Amsterdam).
We are invited by our amazing friends of the Umoja DJ’s & INI Movement, playing together with our buddy Rafael Aragon (straight back from Serbia with us). Catch us between 16h30 and 22h, followed by a b2b clash between all DJ’s til 23h. Either way, it will be an awesome day with great decorations in a natural setting 🙂
