MUEVETE! Special


Muévete! SPECIAL

Saturday 18th May

6pm-2am // Free before 8pm // £6 before 10pm // £8 after 10pm

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.

For the May edition we have an EXTRA SPECIAL LINE-UP in store as the Arts Club is set to play host to OQuadro and Os Nelsons two of the hottest acts from Salvador, Brazil’s bass capital in the state of Bahia!!! The bands hit the UK following ground-breaking Bass Culture Clash performances in Bahia, with festival shows in Salvador’s iconic Pelourinho neighbourhood, alongside UK artists The Heatwave, Lady Chann and Natty.

OQuadro deliver fired-up old school hip hop with their own unique Bahian kick. That’s high-velocity conscious rap, candomblé drums and dub, ijexá and afrobeat flavours – explosive! And injecting digital beats into Bahia’s powerhouse percussive traditions, Os Nelsons make the connect between Salvador and global ghettotech. They see themselves as part of the ‘hi-fi diaspora’, the Afrofuturismo generation, making a new coda for MPB and dubbing it Música Periférica Brasileira – music from the disenfranchised periphery. Based in Bahia’s desert zone – the sertão – Os Nelsons flip the flow with their dancehall/soukous/kuduro mashup – original sertão stylee.

The Muévete Bass Culture Clash special will keep banging until late with Muevete's original formula of Movimientos DJs Arias and Cal Jader laying 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.

Live music from 7pm - 9pm Muévete will welcome to the ring: OQuadro and Os Nelsons (Brazil)

Movimientos DJs from 9pm

Movimientos presents: Carnival Collective + Cable Street Collective + Atrevida

Carnival Collective come hot on the heels of their new album release and with a smaller (but no less banging) line up that might actually fit on the Hootananny stage this time! And Cable Street Collective make a welcome return ahead of a summer of festivals and sunshine as befits their blissfully catchy sounds. AND….To add extra sabora feminina to open the night we welcome the brand new Cuban dance sounds of the all female Atrevida to get the dance floor moving early. PLUS the original Movimientos DJ selectors on the decks with Latin rhythms, carnival beats and tropical bass.

Havana Calling presents Muévete! @ Notting Hill Arts Club

Join us for a final blowout session for DJ Arias before he takes temporary leave. Anyone who's been to Muévete or Movimientos over the years cannot have failed to register the amazing energy that Arias exudes whilst DJing - with his Colombian charm and red hot mix of "classico" Latin beats, "dutty" tropical bass and end of the night boleros he's sent many a punter home grinning from ear to ear. It's time to salute the Movimientos sub-commandante (he will be missed but he will be back soon!)
