DJ Arias is co-founder of the Movimientos movement. His DJ sets are always pushing the boundaries of Latin music while staying true to his Colombian roots.

From Deep Salsa at El Barco Latino, to Baile Funk sessions at the Egg King Cross or Tropical Bass at Favela Chic, Arias can fire-up any crowd with his naughty selection. Expect Hi-octane salsitas, booming Cumbiambas, red hot rumbas flamencas, with a twist of Venezuelan tambor and touch of Dominican speedy merengue Cali style.

Arias has played in Glastonbury Festival, Rise, Carnival del Pueblo to mention a few. He has toured with Cuban MCs Los Paisanos warmed up the audience for Manu Chao, Calle 13 and Bomba Estereo and has been a guest DJ in some of the top world music events in London over the last 10 years.
