Ok, call it winter denial, but we won’t be shivering in our badly insulated homes. Dance with us n this friday the 13th to feverish cumbia, funk carioca, juke, afrotronics & other hot tropical global bass at this Pantropical party!

 

▨ DJ PINCHADO (argentina)
One of our favorite DJ’s from below the equator! Pinchado is a specialist excavator of the finest cumbia and other tropical gems from the vaults of half-molten record jungles across Latin America. He edits these into fun lo-fi mixes, either slowed down (rebajadas) or lovingly left intact to be spinned in clubs around the globe. Pinchado is closely tied to Holland’s own Dick El Demasiado, who released on Pinchado’s own Silbando Discos (next to the flamboyant Peruvian singer and hairdresser La Tigresa del Oriente).

▨ DJ LEBLANC (bruxelles | Rebel Up!, nightshop)
This man from is beyond a shadow of doubt one of the most pleasantly obsessed and knowledgeable purveyors of Non-western, tropical music for the Benelux. Together with Sebcat he’s the co-curator for many great tropical events in Bruxelles (Salle Rogier, Bonnefooi, Recyclart, etc.), and co-hosts the Nightshop radioshow for Radio Campus. Despite the sheer dizzying number of subgenre styles Leblanc uses for his unique DJ mixes, they’re always super focused, tight and highly dancable. Leblanc’s set will include digital cumbia, global bass & afrotronics.

▨ DØG (brazil)
DØG exists in multiple spaces simultaneously, raised in global suburbs, based in digital realms, sometimes visual other times musical. DØG divides his time between geeking out with A/V installations (as ‘ehCaetano’), and über-dancable DJ sessions as one of DØG’s multiple incarnations. This night he’ll serve up a high-octane mix of funk carioca, ghetto house, afro, and juke, with a pinch of tecnomelody and lambada. Heavy beats from the west suburbs of the planet.

Brazilian NGO Tiaozinho

During the next 3 months, a sports project for children and adolescents in one of the Sao Paulo favela’s will be organised. The aim is to stimulate social skills, values like team spirit, playing together and fairplay so that the youths can make positive decisions in their future life, but the main goal simply is to just have fun and enjoy themselves. Sports that will feature are football, volleyball & circus techniques and some other activities. Also friendly tournaments will be organised for the children as an end goal to all their sports training and with an incentive for them to invite their family into their playing environment as part of the social process. For this project, they need to raise money to buy sports equipment (balls, nets, clothing etc) and to cover other costs.

Helloooow,

On Friday the 11th o´may, the super special Cassette Connection tour kicks off in Belgium (Antwerp & Brussels) and followed by Amsterdam on Sunday with a limited set by Rebel Up! through the magical Indian tape collection of Sebcat.

Cassette Connection is a pure cassette tour with 3 specialised cassette dj`s playing their collections of colourful lo-fi tapes of (un)popular, vintage and folkloric music from different regions of the world; lo-fi folkpop, ethnic jewels & disco sounds from AFRICA – MIDDLE EAST and the INDIAN SUBCONTINENT.

Awesome Tapes from Africa (US)
After a stint in Ghana researching the local hip-hop movement, Brian Shimkovitz, a trained ethnomusicologist, has accumulated hundreds of cassette tapes of rare african music from Zimbabwe to Ethiopia to Senegal. He has been sharing his bounty through his popular blog Awesome Tapes From Africa, which he takes on the road as a DJ. His dj sets bring old and new music styles of the African continent together in one pure sound that will make you swing till you drop. Awesome Tapes From Africa is now also a label; the first release is a classic 1982 recording by Mali’s legendary diva, Nâ Hawa Doumbia
