This month DJ Cal Jader is joined by the legendary Brazilian selector and producer Dolores for the monthly fiesta that is Muevete with it's original formula of uptempo Latino-Caribbean-Tropical soundclash vibe where classic rhythms get bastardised and twisted up for the modern dancefloor.
Given the healthy relations between newly elected Brazilian President Dilma Roussef and Cuba's revolutionary government it's perhaps appropriate Havana Calling has recently welcomed some of the most boundary pushing Brazilian musical revolutionaries (DJ Tahira, Chico Correa) to slay the dance floor at the Arts Club and this month our guest DJ Dolores continues the trend and tops them all. As a pioneer at the forefront of Brazil's new movement which reappropriates some of the country's neglected traditions, especially those popular styles traditionally shunned by the establishment. Over a long career he's collaborated with and remixed the likes of Gilberto Gil, Nação Zumbi, Fernanda Porto, Beastie Boys and David Byrne. And with his new project Stank he's taken his sound one step further incorporating elements of dancehall, drum 'n' bass, dubstep, and tecnobrega with a heavy dose of old skool rave and Recife's mangue-beat attitude. Get set for the dance floor explosion from the Caribbean to the Amazon and the Mangue (Mangroves) of Recife!
Plus on the early on (8.30pm) there's a live set from Rio De Janeiro's Botecoelectro remixing traditional Brazilian carnival styles into a furious blaze of electronic beats.
