Rebel Up! started early 2007 in Amsterdam, Netherlands to become a world music DJ & VJ collective with members from Belgium and Netherlands. The crew now consists of DJ's SebCat, LeBlanc and Duckfood, visual artist VJ M and several graphic designers. We promote concert and party nights in Brussels, Amsterdam and other cities within Belgium and Netherlands.

In our dj sets, we play out different local music styles from all around the world, whether it be traditional or urban music; grassroots folk, street level pop or electronic dance music. Our dj-sets come with interactive visuals by VJ M, for a total immersive experience of sounds and images from 'elsewhere'. Sounds from the global underground!

At WOMEX 14, Rebel Up! Soundclash played an official DJ showcase in Santiago, which turned into a real party!

So far, Rebel Up! has performed on party nights and festivals in Belgium, Netherlands, France, Germany, UK, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Croatia, Lithuania, Latvia, Russia, Canada, Brazil, Argentina and Peru. Most notable festivals that Rebel Up! has performed at so far: Womex14, Sfinks mixed (BE), Esperanzah (BE), Amsterdam Roots (NL), Recyclart Holidays (BE), Zomerparkfeest (NL), Pole Pole Beach (BE), Boom festival (PT), Le Guess Who (NL), International Film Festival Rotterdam (NL), Piec Smakov (PL), Zenith Fusion (BG), Goulash Disko (CR), Atlas Electronic (MA), Borgofuturo (IT), ... and soon yours?

In March 2018, Rebel Up Records was kickstarted, a new record label that puts focus on releasing music from contemporary global (electronic / traditional) artists from the diaspora within Belgium or abroad. Within 6 months, we already have 7 releases out from countries such as Ghana, Mexico, Iraq, Tunisia and the multicultural Brussels scene. Sounds from the global underground!
