Muévete is back with resident Cal Jader hosting another night of sunshine vibes with very special guest DJ Thykier from Copenhagen's hottest global music collective and label Urban World Records in town to help launch the 3rd instalment of their brilliant series of global bass compilations. Thykier is the producer behind many underground hits from the Tropical bass scene adept at mashing Moombahton next to Samba and Baile Funk with Hip Hop, Cumbia and Kuduro all in the mix. Plus on the warm up from the heavyweight Japanese dancehall crew Part2Style DJ 3rdBall will be dropping a special set of Latin Reggae and Dancehall beats with Cumbia and Caribbean sounds up in the mix. It's set to be another killer night on this always-jumping, always-rammed Latino tropical-themed Saturday night at the Arts Club.

Plus from 6.30 join us for short film screenings from the cutting edge Rio Film School, followed by a presentation from the film-makers and Q&A with top Canadian Documentary Producer, Bart Simpson (Bananas, Big Boys Gone Bananas, The Corporation) and Dorian Needs, Director of the Rio Fllm School - not to be missed!

About Global Bass Volume 3: "For the third time, UrbanWorld Records has done an impeccable job at filtering the best, and sharing the absolute cream of the crop in this perfectly packaged compilation. With one foot in a Colombian picó, the other in a Frafra wedding celebration, and yet another set of limbs in grimy warehouses pounding with heavy bass, Global Bass Volume 3 will have your head traveling at a thousand miles per second, from Barranquilla to Copenhagen, Bolgatanga to Varna. The global music revolution is stomping ahead, and UrbanWorld will transport you onto this wild ride. These beats will leave no one immobile. You have been warned." B Brave (Akwaaba Music)

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, bail funk and dutty carnival rhythms, incorporating a healthy dose of African beats and global underground music.
