Using instruments made from reclaimed trash, Schroothoop pay tribute to Brussels' cultural melting pot with their kinetic fusion of reggaeton, jazz and Afro-Cuban music. The project was assembled by veteran multi-instrumentalists Rik Staelens, Margo Maex and Timo Vantyghem, who use discarded objects you'd find in a landfill - scraps of wood, old metal or plastic, plus garden and kitchen utensils - to build homemade drums, basses, string instruments and flutes. The band released their debut album "Klein Gevaarlijk Afval" (Small Hazardous Waste) last spring, and will bring their arsenal of curious noisemaking objects to Rewire 2021 to perform their semi-improvised "proper canned junk" live.
