Decks: Movimientos DJs Arias and guests Don Beto and Corysco

Muévete is a monthly fiesta - a pure party version of Movimientos, with a dance floor-slammin' mash up of raw Latin beats, carnival rhythms and tropical bass. This month we're looking forward to guest DJ Don Beto from Venezuala and a warm-up set by Brazilian DJ Corysco.

Movimientos DJ Arias and lay down heavy Latin-Caribbean-Tropical heat on the decks. 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 flavour.

Don Beto is flying in from Venezuela as part of the European tour with his band La Gallera Social Club. He's a consummate producer in his own right, reflected in his DJ sets which conjure a rip-roaring futuristic blend of Afro-Latin rhythms and Venezuelan tradtional music with electronic beats alongside a healthy dose of tropical bass and cumbia.

DJ Corysco combines his passion for skateboarding with research for music to soundtrack the experience. He spent a long period learning in Los Angeles and went back to Rio with a pair of turntables and lots of records. He produces the Hijinx party in Niteroi City that brings a unique vibe to the city connecting people through its energy. Save the music!

Check out Movimientos on Mixcloud for a sample of the kind of music you're likely to hear:

Please bring photo ID to the club, especially if you are under 25.
