Friday 23 Nov > Rebel Up @ concert night in BRASS w/ Los Orioles + Spiritczualic Enhancement Center, Bxl

Concert night on friday in BRASS cultural centre in Forest.
2 bands on the programme and 2 dj’s!

Los Orioles (CH)
Like a gang roaming the world, the seven Swiss musicians of Los Orioles seem to have used wherever they went: the cumbia in Colombia, the dub in Jamaica, the rhythms and the guitars of West Africa, but also the most alternative whimsical francophone songs (we think of the Brigitte Fontaine / Areski Belkacem duo). Sung, rapped or declaimed lyrics that wander in an endless reverb amidst a precious selection of grooves from around the world.

Spiritczualic Enhancement Center (DE/IS)

In their physical form, their existence lasted only two weeks, confined in an abandoned Ottoman building, at the foot of the walls of ancient Jerusalem. Today in exile, the Spiritczualic Enhancement Center is a free-beat resonance field, an evolving and eclectic set of different cities and countries – they prefer the term ‘international’.
In concert, four to ten musicians play a strange and ritual instrumental music, based on spontaneity and improvisation. After a series of concerts at the Fusion Festival (Germany), Outernational Days (Bucharest) and at the New Hamburg Festival, as well as in various concert venues in Europe, they have just announced three upcoming releases: ‘Transporting Salt’ on the American label Crash Symbols; ‘Who Corrupted Our Wave, Back in 1969?’ on the post-Babylonian label Kinship; and a vinyl, ‘Me and My Students Have Reached Higher Levels’ on the Paris label Akuphone, scheduled for early 2019.

Fri 20 Nov > Rebel Up! LeBlanc @ Pantropical, WORM, Rotterdam w/ Oscilador Bass (MX), Sonido Martines (AR), No Munchi (NL/DO)+ live percussion

Pantropical: tropical party night in Rotterdam with cumbia, latin bass, & more!

12186443_509018452591411_9120844568833095647_o
On the back of our Pan-Afro futuristic October edition, we turn our focus on chunky Latin American sounds; Cumbia (vintage/nu, Chicha, Sonidera, Villera), Latin Bass, and a pinch of bachata and merengue.

OSCILADOR BASS (MX | latin bass mexico)
This friendly Cumbia-bot has housewives and washing machines alike obsessing over him all across Latin America. Now his mission is to make crowds in the rest of the world follow suit during its upcoming EU / Asia trek. Oscilador Bass is all about creating the hottest Latin Bass, expertly mixing güiro rasps, cowbells and congas with the best spatial sound, all assembled with mucho amor in Mexico!

SONIDO MARTINES (AR)
Sonido Martines is the Argentine figurehead of the South American cumbia scenes. In his dj mixes, Argentine and Colombian Cumbia meet vintage Vallenato and Chicha, and Dub hits upon electronic music. He is a tireless seeker of lost vinyl records and remixer of Cumbia classics, shaking up the dancefloors with a wide selection of tropical music from all over Latin America. His DJ sets feature a wide array of vintage psychedelic cumbia and other tropical beat music, almost doubling as history lessons.

LEBLANC (BE | Rebel Up! / Pantropical)
Last seen & heard in February deconstructing the dancefloor at Pantropical with Pinchado and DØG. LeBlanc is one of the most pleasantly obsessed and knowledgeable purveyors of Non-western, tropical music for the Benelux. Together with Rebel Up! / Nightshop’s Sebcat he’s the co-curator for many great tropical events in Brussels (Recyclart, Beursschouwburg, Les Ateliers Claus, Bonnefooi etc.), and co-hosts the Nightshop radioshow on Radio Campus. Despite the dizzying number of subgenres LeBlanc uses for his DJ mixes, they’re always focused and highly dancable. Tonight’s set will include digital cumbia, dancehall, reggaeton and other global bass.

NO MUNCHI (NL/DO)
Spins his fave vintage Dominican tunes, including Bachata, Merengue, and Palo; reverb and effect drenched, to make things a bit more compatible with the other sounds on offer on this night.

CHRIS BRUINING (NL) & NIQUE QUENTIN (DE) – live percussion
The DJ sets will be spiced up with skilful live percussion played by Rotterdam based percussionists Chris Bruining (Gallowstreet, La Banda Fantastica), and Nique Quentin (Los Paja Brava / Doktor Schnitt). Chris recently played live with Dick El Demasiado at Pantropical in September.

@ Worm – Boomgaardsstraat 71, Rotterdam
23:00 – 05:00 | presale: 7€ / door: 8€
