Live (8pm): X Planet

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.

Joining Arias on the decks is regular Movimientos guest La Salida adds a dash of musical spice with his soaring flute melodies floating over the beats. As part of the Urgent Union carnival soundsystem crew (whose float Movimientos guest on at carnival) he brings a love of caribbean carnival anthems and as a member of the superb sephardic flamenco fusion band Los Desterrados he brings a distinct mediterranean musical vibe to the mix alongside all the usual Muévete tropical latino styles. Plus guest Rufflion warms up the vibe after the live band setting the tone with some Dancehall, Cumbia and bouncy Colombian vibes.

And on the early live set (8pm) X Planet is the organic Anglo-Cuban collaboration of London-born singer-songwriter Holly Holden and Santiago rapper Alain Garcia (Alayo Style). Holden’s soulful folk narratives fuse seamlessly with Alayo’s direct and rhythmic urban poetry. X Planet aims to challenge the idea of world music as something labelled 'exotic' by Western record companies. Their sound is vibrant and open, bilingual and free, incorporating a huge variety of genres - hip hop, folk, blues, quisomba, funk, reggaeton and even bolero.
