Thu 9 Nov > Rebel Up Soundclash w/ Luka Productions (Mali / Sahel Sounds) & dj Zé Karlo

This thursday, a last minute Rebel Up Soundclash @ OCCII with a very special guest from Mali > > >

LUKA PRUDUCTIONS (Mali / Sahel Sounds)
Luka Guindo, rapper, producer, and multi-instrumentalist and one of the most sought after producers of contemporary Malian Hip Hop. Working from a small bedroom sized studio alongside a busy street in the Malian capital city, Luka has built a reputation as one of the most prodigious beatmakers. Working with artists such as Supreme talent show, Ami Yerewolo, Iba One, van baxy and Sidiki Diabaté, Luka productions officiel is a household name in Bamako’s Hip Hop scene. New age music from West Africa. Lush and hypnotic dreamscapes combine traditional instrumentation with sweeping electronics, field recordings, and soothing affirmations. Bamako based composer Luka Productions delves into avant-griot, transforming ancient music into the 21st century. The songs are meditative and sage, as voices guide the listener through ways of living, from the village life to the modern world. Inspired from early electronic music, library records, and new age, this is easily one of the most left field recordings to ever come out of Mali.

RebelUp SebCat says; “amazing subtle album of afro-electronic moods, between the city & the bush. Modern Malian music from the young generation like you never heard…”

Free entrance

and that’s not all > also on wednesday night, Rebel Up also helps organising a psychedelic cumbia concert of Swiss band Los Orioles in Rue de la Senne.

Los Orioles reload traditionnal tropical music with their own fresh touch of afrobeat and dub breaks. This super hot septet from Biel/Bienne (CH) was initiated by Adrien Guerne in 2013 and is fronted by swiss garage rock legend Dany Digler. They deliver continuous waves of shaking licks and tremolo screams that surf over a groovy and rock-solid cumbia base. Their show offers a sweaty and endless transe of bouncing latin beats washed in a weird and freaky reverbed sci-fi soundscape. Don’t forget your space goggl”es, get your hips implants fixed and go Baila La Cumbia all night long !
