Cheb Runner Angry Immigrant + DJ CARIE
FR 02.07 20:00 - 22:00

Angry Immigrant is a musical tribute to 10 years of immigration in Brussels. The Moroccan producer Cheb Runner moved to Brussels in 2011. This musical hurricane combines his rich cultural heritage together with contemporary electronic sounds. With his music as the best transmitter for his bottled anger, he will unleash this energy with an hour-long live-show of unreleased compositions, each track representing one year in Brussel as an immigrant. Supported with his unique selection of synths, drum machine and creative mind, Cheb Runner will take you along in his journey where uplifting ambience meets club. It is a journey of sky-height dreams with deep-down falls, glorified expectations and distorted reality, and the continuous battle of understanding and being understood.

Producer Cheb Runner (real name Reda Senhaji) is a musical hurricane rooted in the Moroccan soil, exploring the West European electronic musical landscapes. Nurtured by both worlds, he represents a new sound of in-betweenness. Using first-hand sounds and recordings of his own sample bank based on traditional instruments, he mixes playfully analog with digital effects supported with a unique collection of synthesizes. Cheb Runner started his career on the music scene flirting with different names, collectives and genres the last 10 years. Both as producer, composer and DJ he is merging traditional and contemporary electronic sounds together moving from chaabi, gnaoua, gabber and Italo. He is part of the (A)WAKE collective.
