Decks: DJs Cal Jader & La Flama Blanca (Baile Tropicante - Lisbon) + Red Clay (on the warm up 8pm-10pm)

Into February and Muévete keeps up the regular tradition of inviting some of the finest international tropical DJs welcoming Lisbon's party starter and outright performer La Flama Blanca (Baile Tropicante) for the monthly fiesta Muévete with it's original formula of uptempo Latino-Caribbean-Tropical soundclash vibes where classic rhythms get bastardised and twisted up for the modern dancefloor.

La Flama Blanca is the cumbia instigator of Lisbon, an activist in love! In love with the psychedelic tunes coming out of the Peruvian jungle in the 60’s. In love with the Colombian big band scene. And most of all, in love with the uprising movement that Flama likes to call “Antropological-digital cumbia” emerging from the streets of Buenos Aires, Bogotá and Lima. He puts togheter a monthly party called Baile Tropicante in Musicbox venue, Lisbon and has for the last two years been the main reference for tropical music in Portugal. He has played in Guacamayo Fest & Sala Sol (Madrid), Dame de Canton, L'Alimentation General, L'International (Paris), Barreirinha Bar Cafe (Madeira island), Boom festival (Idanha-a-nova), Le Guess Who festival (Utrecht), Gulbenkian museum, Lux dicotheque (Lisbon) amongst some of the most important clubs in the country and in Europe.


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, 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 messing around - straight to the dancefloor!
