BOOST // DENMARK TOUR

About the project

Background

RAPOLITICS has worked closely with the Egyptian rap group Revolution Records for many years. We first met the team in Alexandria, Egypt in 2012 and the same year, they visited Denmark. The research tour resulted in a partnership project from 2013 to 2014 with a series of activities in Egypt including the establishment of a new recording studio and training center for youths in Alexandria. Revolution Records returned to Denmark in 2013 as a part of the Rap Lab Mena project – a training camp for raptivists. Finally, we have embarked in a partnership between RAPOLITICS, Revolution Records and Vallekilde Folk High School in 2014, which resulted in a youth exchange between Danish and Egyptian youths and an Egyptian Revolution Tour in 2015.

The BOOST tour

In May 2016, we welcomed Revolution Records back to Denmark for a series of concerts in the cities of Copenhagen and Aarhus. They performed with Danish rapper Manus Bell and Home Studio Productions (now Affiliated) as well as DJ Mor Ugle in three different concerts.
