Rebel Up Soundclash 'Global Psyche Night' @ OCCII Amsterdam on Saturday 25th of February 2012

On Saturday the 25th of February, I'll be deejaying alongside Rebel Up's dj-crew and a live performance by Arrington de Dionyso at the OCCII cultural center in Amsterdam.. I'll bring most of my collection of 'global psych' records with a special focus on tracks from Turkey and Thailand.. might sneak in some Cheez beats and some tropical bass at the end ;-)

Text taken from RebelUp.org:

This will be a *global psyche night*, meaning we will focus on experimental & improvised global sounds as well as vintage pop/rock spheres from the 60′s and 70′s from different corners of the world. Ofcourse we’ll also give you a nice dose of heavy bass deeper into the night to big up the Rebel Up! kaleidoscope.


We’re happy to announce our special American guest Arrington de Dionyso (ex-Old Time Relijun, the psychedelic krautrock band from overseas & Malaikat dan Singa) who will bring his trans-utopian throatsinging, bass clarinet, inspired by Indonesian trance music as a live improvisation of global psychedelic proportions. Be warned, his sound will go deep into your soul and liberate it with shamanic power.

Our second guest will travel from less far Brussels, Belgium. DJ Lowdjo is an eclectic wizard of the sort that totally fits the Rebel Up! mood and we’re also happy to have him joining our global cause of diasphoric sound. He will play special vintage sets of Thai folk funk and Turkish psychedelic rock straight out of his 45′s collection that will get everyone swinging.

As always, the Rebel Up! crew will play electic ethnic sound and everything in between to make you listen & dance while our visuals will make sure there’s never a dull moment on the dancefloor.

The charity of the night where we will donate our profits to is NGO Bhakti Luhur in Malang, Eastern Java, which takes care of handicapped children. One of the aid workers is a dutchman who runs the excellent Madrotter blog, all about Indonesian pop, rock and folk music from the past with quality uploads, though since the whole megaupload bust his blog has been relocated at Madrotter Treasure Hunt.
