And hot on the heels of their debut EP release Cable Street Collective whose sound draws from African Highlife and Soukous whilst throwing in elements of Funk, Ska and Soul for a sublime carnival pop experience.

Keeping the dancefloor jumpin’Movimientos’ Cal Jader is joined by regular compadre MadMax(Jukebox Baloo) plus there’s debut Movimientos sets from Larry SKG(Frutos Prohibido), Ru Robinson from Bristol crew Son Chaméléon and party starter La Luz.
