Rebel Up! has teamed up with the Lowup crew to organize a Brussels show for the Frikstailers 2014 European tour at Salle Rogier.
We kick off early at 18:00 with BBQ (veg + meat) and cold drinks on the terrace out front and showing the world cup quarter final between Belgium – Argentina, just the perfect game for our Belgian-Argentinian party!!!
At 23:00 we move inside for a concert by the “indisputable galactic emperors of tropical futurism” followed by a steaming global bass party with all the local heroes. Have a peek at our FACEBOOK event for details and more music.
The rhythms and textures of traditional Latin American music infused with hip hop and dancehall beats, dramatic synth leads and krauty electro noodlings: Argentinian duo the Frikstailers boldly go where no band has gone before and they do it with verve and gusto.
With one album, two ep’s and some sizzling hot remixes to their name this Mexico City based duo have established themselves as a first class electronic live act at festivals on both sides of the Atlantic and are now bathing in the favourable attention of reputable institutions such as XLR8R, The Fader, Boiler Room and Modeselektor.
The dj’s of the Rebel Up! & Lowup crew will surround their live set with cumbia bass, dancehall, urban electronic and many other spicy tropical dance styles.
18:00 outdoor on terrace: FOOT (BEL-ARG) + BBQ + APERO > free in Come round early for food & drinks, enjoy one of DJ Mellow’s big kefta & Leblanc’s chickpea sandwiches (5€) with homemade dressing and salad out on our rainproof terrace.
