Movimientos is excited to present the UK album launch for Reverso's "Radio Comfort".

The band's exciting brass laden sound brings together ska, reggae and soul with Latin rhythms and mestizo energy making a unique connection between Ecuador - Latin America and London

Reverso's second album 'Radio Comfort' is the highly anticipated and acclaimed result of the evolution and establishment of ska mestizo: the live sound of Reverso. This album steps up from their previous work and encapsulates the fresh and strong identity of this 7-piece band which has lit up London's latin scene. 'Radio Comfort' offers 11 new songs that are a fusion of ska and reggae with a wide palett of latin rhythms: merengue, salsa, tango, ballad, cumbia, and balkan sounds. The lyrics cover a variety of topics, from politics to anarchy; from falling in love to falling out, from existence to nothing... with a hint of irony, humour, romance and hope. 'Radio Comfort' is exactly that: Comfort in Music!


Babilondon is a fresh London based roots reggae band inspired by the sun, sea, and surf of frontman Zack Woolfson's Portuguese background.? The band have developed a strong unity having studied music together in London and their diverse mix of nationalities, personalities and different rootical cultures brings out a unique sound. With a debut EP on the way, gigs and festivals booked, they are ready to take on any audience, get them skanking, and have a good time!

Poppy Perezz
Launching their latest single "Space Antelope" Poppy Perezz?hail from Mexico, Trinidad and England but now reside in the suitably cosmopolitan city of Bristol. The four-piece make feel-good, sunshine-happy music for cool and groovy summer nights. Imagine?an exotic trip through Highlife-style guitar licks, Mariachi-band trumpets, percolating basslines, disco handclaps, soaring flute solos and crazy arpeggio synth lines?– and you'll get the general idea.
