Decks: DJs Cal Jader & special guest DJ Masaya (Global Grooves - Sweden)


Amidst a slew festival appearances around the UK including Glastonbury, Boomtown and Standon Calling and ahead of Notting Hill Carnival where he's part of the Urgent Union Soundsystem float DJ Cal Jader hosts the monthly fiesta that is Muévete with it's original formula of uptempo Latino-Caribbean-Tropical soundclash vibe where classic rhythms get bastardised and twisted up for the modern dancefloor. He's joined by DJ Masaya from Sweden (and of Chilean descent) one of the key DJs from the global scene in Europe. Expect a mash up of Electro-Cumbia, Swing, Moombahton, Reggae, Kuduro, Zouk and Tropical bass for a dance floor frenzy.

PURE TROPICAL PARTY VIBES!! A favourite for Saturday night crowds in West London, Muévete is a monthly fiesta - a pure party version of Movimientos, with a dance floor-slammin' mash up of raw Latin beats and tropical bass. From the rolling Latin rhythms of salsa, cumbia, merengue and Samba to the raw urban flavours of reggaeton, Hip Hop, dancehall, moombahton, baile funk and dutty carnival rhythms, incorporating a healthy dose of African beats and global underground music. Put simply Muévete translates as 'Move it!' so no messing around- straight to the dancefloor!

Check out Movimientos on Mixcloud for a sample of the kind of music you're likely to hear: http://www.mixcloud.com/Movimientos_1/

DJ Masaya is a cocktail of world sounds mixed with a fresh blend of electronic beats. Swing, Balkan or Latin-Cumbia Sounds are his specialty, blended with house and breakbeats. The perfect combination for dancing in an eclectic global party.

His radio show, “Global Groove” has been transmitted since 2009 through Guatemalan radio, and the well known Groovalizacion getting a broad audience to follow his unique sound. Currently based in Stockholm, Sweden, DJ Masaya has become an important agent of the global music scene in the city, being the dj on the main stage of the festival of the city (Kulturfestivalen 2011), while holding a dj residency at different clubs in the city, like Södrateatern, Ljunggren, Strand, Calexicos, and more.
