7pm-2am // Free before 8pm // £6 before 10pm // £8 after 10pm
Decks: DJ iZem (GAMM Records / Groovalizacion) + Alx Alfaro + InDJNous


Muévete is the monthly fiesta frenzy with it's original formula of uptempo Latino-Caribbean-Tropical soundclash vibe, classic rhythms getting bastardised and twisted up for the modern dancefloor. This month we host longtime Movimientos friends and two of the best tropical - latin DJs around Alx Alfaro and iZem to fire up the dance plus we have InDJNous (Latinos in London) to warm up the vibe early.

DJ iZem is the French globetrotter has been on a meteoric rise over the past year or so, setting dancefloors on fire from Berlin to Lisbon and making a name for himself for his cutting edge productions and remixes for Soundway, Far Out, Agogo, ZZK records, Wah Wah 45's, Mais Um Discos with high praise and airplay from the likes for Gilles Peterson, Quantic, XLR8R and Okay Player. He's also been DJing all around Europe and in Latin America showcasing his own future tropical beats laced with organic global grooves and bass music.

Alx Alfaro returns to London after years hosting the number one latin night in the north east of England and with some of his own re-edits and productions always gets the party started. Plus InDJNous plays some of the funkiest new latin music and his set coincides with the Colombian national day celebrating some of his country's finest musical styles.

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, Afro-Latin house, 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 we're not beating around the bush - straight to the dancefloor!
