Mukatsuku Records and Soul-Identity Music come together once again to bring you Corazón - a new night of block-party Brazilian beats, Latin jazz, Afrobeat and other tropical disco treats.
Join DJs Nik Weston and Rob Coley as they dig deep into their vinyl stashes for an evening showcase of dancefloor orientated grooves from across Africa and the Americas, with some of London’s finest session musicians on hand to give the basslines a little extra oomph!
About the DJs:
Nik Weston (Mukatsuku Records)
Since starting his first club night back in 1995, Nik Weston has held numerous residencies across London and has played in over 30 countries around the world. Over the last 12 years he has put out over 60 vinyl releases on Japanese, UK and European labels often with Latin, Brazilian and African influences. For Corazón at Floripa, you can expect him to delve into his expansive record collection to bring you the finest Brazilian boogie, Afro funk and all things tropical.
Rob Coley (Soul-Identity Music)
DJ and promoter Rob Coley has been collecting records and DJing for over 15 years and since a move brought him to the capital in September 2001 he hasn’t looked back, promoting a number of events under the Soul-Identity Music banner. Rob’s passion for music spans hip-hop, soul, underground house, jazz and Afro Latin rhythms, and for Corazón at Floripa, he’ll be donning his Latin and Brazilian hats to bring you the best club-friendly Latin jazz, heavy bossas, salsas, sambas and descargas from across the South American continent.
Every second Friday of the month at Floripa the Corazón DJs will invite musicians to join in the party aiming to complement the sound of vinyl with a unique live element whether it be steel pan, conga, bongo, timbales or a simple cowbell making it truly difficult not to dance!
