Channeling the spiritual energy of Dia de los Muertos, Movimientos present a special party with an incredible lineup of international guests, heavyweights of the new electronic-folklore scene in South America Chancha Via Circuito, Uji, Kurup & Cris Kai!
Joining us after his sellout live show down at Archspace earlier this year is Argentinian producer Chancha Via Circuito. He’ll be stepping up to the decks and exploring a range of folkloric influences to weave a digital soundscape inspired by the many musical cultures of Latin America.
Also joining us fresh off the back of his debut album released earlier this year on ZZK Records, we’re extremely excited to welcome Uji to Redon for his UK debut! A nomad since the age of two, he has lived throughout the American continent, growing up amidst a diversity of sounds and cultures. Uji’s music is designed for the dancefloor, electronic music that reflects his upbringing and has roots in indigenous, folkloric and African ritual music. Join us as we delve into the seemingly opposite worlds of the ancient and the modern in a ritual of chants and dance.
If that’s not enough, Brazilian producer Kurup will also be bringing his musical collage to Redon, deep, electronic productions filtered through the natural world around us, as well as Mexican DJ Cris Kai, fusing the freshest sounds from Africa, Latin America and Asia with electronic music.

MORE INFO ON THE ARTISTS
Uji (Luis Maurette) is an electronic producer and musician born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. A nomad since the age of two, Maurette has lived throughout the American continent in Ecuador, Chile, Mexico, USA and Argentina. Uji’s music is meant for the dance floor, and has roots in indigenous, folkloric and African music. His fascination with sound and electronic music brought him to Berklee School of Music where he delved into synthesis, programming and sound design. In parallel he immersed himself in ritual music, which led him into the mountains and jungles to participate in indigenous ceremonies and songs, to make field recordings of the birds and rivers, to learn rhythms and dances, to discover ancient practices and to listen to the ancestral voice of nature.
He is half of the pioneering duo Lulacruza since its inception in 2005, with whom he has released 5 albums, a feature film and visual album by director Vincent Moon, as well as a remix series by a worldwide mix of producers.
CHANCHA VIA CIRCUITO
Chancha Via Circuito is the pseudonym used by Argentinian producer Pedro Canale to explore his various Latin American influences. He’s been producing tracks since 2005, creating a fusion of electronic elements with acoustic voices and instruments - computer bleeps share sonic space with folkloric chant, candombe drums are accompanied by the sample of a machete splicing the air and a vocal line of indigenous bebop is layered over hints of dub.
Having previously released records with ZZK, his latest album, Bienaventuranza, came out earlier this year on Wonderwheel Recordings.
Born in cerrado, at the vast tropical savannah of Brazil, Renato Rocha is a multi-platform digital artist. His deep, electronic productions sound as if they were filtered through the natural world around him: Plants, insects, birds, the dry wind, the moon. The same way a mosaic is created, Kurup’s music is a colorful collage. Noise fragments, samples and soundscapes are blended trough different layers to achieve the final goal: Narrative. Musical traditions of his afro-brazilian background flourish in his story together with aspects from downtempo, dub, house and techno, Finally mixed up with a psychedelic touch.
Kurup is currently a resident dj at LIMBO and has released 4 EPs and many singles through distinct music labels around the world such as Frente Bolivarista, Tropical Twista, Shika Shika, CasaCaos, Urban Cosmonaut Radio, Leveldva, Drossel, Aya and many more.
