Movimientos Presents Frikstailers + Richard Blair (Sidestepper)
Movimientos welcomes ZZK Records’ pioneers Frikstailers for a rare UK show alongside DJs Cal Jader (Movimientos) & Chilango plus special guests for a night of day-glo future tropical bass and cosmic cumbia!
Pronounced freak-stylers, the band rose from the eclectic Buenos Aires cumbia scene, turning the genre on its head with their unique style that saw Fader magazine describe them as “cumbia circuit-bent through neon dance tunes that interpret the most electric side of South America”.
In the last year they’ve headlined the taste-making Boiler Room, where they wowed the audience rocking video game interfaces reconstructed as musical instruments, surprised MUTEK Mexico with a brand new side project called “Klik & Frik” mentioned by XLR8R as one of the best 11 shows of the festival and they toured Europe twice chosen as the closing act of the night for festivals such as Transmusicales (Rennes) and Worldtronics (Berlin).
The duo of Rafa Caivano and Lisandro Sona released their first LP on ZZK Records entitled “En Son De Paz” in February 2013. This 12 track journey through time and space caught the attention of NPR, XLR8R, MTV Iggy, Zona de Obras and the french Mondomix, and was recently chosen as one of the top 10 albums of Latin indie music of 2013 by the prestigious Spanish newspaper El Pais.
If all of that wasn’t enough they will also be joined by the one and only Richard Blair aka Sidestepper. It’s gonna be one hell of a night!
