Greetings people around the world! Aluku Rebels is a House music collective from London UK. DJ St Denis has been collecting,listening to & clubbing to house music over the last 10 years starting from my mid teens with kiss fm zoo experience @ club bar Rumba (Bobby n Steve and Norris Windross)
I have heard the sound evolve and develop into many forms; from old school House (Frankie Knuckles) to M.A.W and their Garage sound, Kerri Chandler's NewJack, to Osunlade's Future deep tribe.
In 2003 I brought a cd called AFRICANISM on Defected Records (French label - Yellow Records) which included Dj Gregory,Bob Sinclair,Martin Solveig and Claud Monnet. I fell in love with the fayacombo African beats with their zouk,soca,African,Bashment and samba influnced groove)
Then came a SoulHeaven CD (Osunlade & Spen 2006)The intro track was called BRIA'S OFFERING by Boddhi Satva. It had a ritual, deep rooted, ancestral sound which further inspired me. Then CASSABLANCA SOUL (Nomumbah mix)by Osunlade with its deep, eerie, atmospheric feel. This kind of versitility inspired us to experiment further and help push the Deep Tech Ancestral House sound.
First year pushing deep/afro/tribal/future sounds as Aluku Rebels St.Denis has teamed up with QH Radio on a weekly show and has been expressing the sound in london nightclubs(SupperClub,Avalon,Plan.B,WhiteHouse,Egg Club)and a few other places around london in his first year,He has also featured on a number of other radio shows as a guest around the world with Sy Sez(Colourful Radio,UK) Max Pela(Afrobeta Bodega,USA)Esteban Fernandez(Butter Soul Cafe,USA)Said Chaara(dRadio,GRE)and intends to continue doing more to spread the love for house music.This year(2012) he help a new label with Dee-Malice called DM Recordings but has now on a journey with his own label ALUKU RECORDS which will be up n running later this year giving you stuff for the TRIBAL DEEP,ANCESTRAL,AFRO SOUL,FUTURE TECH HOUSE MUSIC HEADS & will also help push n evolve the sound as much as he can.
Hope you enjoy the journey and will keep u up to date with any further productions, releases and events .....One Love,Bless!!!
