For one night London’s leading Latin club-nights Batmacumba // Arriba La Cumbia // Movimientos join forces for one of the highlights of London’s summer calendar. A four hour Latin, Brazilian, Global, Ghetto bass, Tropical cruise down the Thames to a little-known delta where a long forgotten tributary of the Amazon cuts an intersection with London’s mighty river for what is always a truly hot, sweaty carnivalistic sell-out affair.

Our boat for the evening, the Dutch Master, offers a fully licensed bar, a spacious teak covered dance-floor and two large open-decks to enjoy London’s floodlit bridges and buildings - as well as the best sounds from the Latin underground... Taking in the sites of London town along the way, the musical soundtrack is provided by the pioneers of the city’s tropical movement:

DJ Cliffy (Batmacumba)
will be playing his unique mix of sassy sambas, favela funk and vintage vinyl plus a mind-blowing selection of new Brazilian bangers from techno-brega to baile funk mash-ups.

Russ Jones aka the Hackney Globe Trotter
brings the red hot vibe of his twisted Colombian, Cumbia, Chicha party Arriba La Cumbia mixed up wth the biggest club bangers for an ‘Around the world in eighty ways’ essential club mix-up, mash-up.

Cal Jader & Arias (Movimientos) spearhead the new Latin and Tropical underground sounds in London their sets mix Salsa, Cumbia and Merengue with Urban Latin beats with Hip Hop, Ska and Reggae, alongside the freshest Tropical bass and global sounds.
