Powermoves Entertainment is a locally based record company with international intentions. Eric Martinez established the label back in 2001 and now hosts his own team of personnel and artists. Powermoves has represented the Southwest at glitzy, big-time functions like the Latin Rap Conference, the Sundance Film Festival and the MTV Music Awards. Now, Powermoves vice president of operations John Chavez says the company is preparing for what may be its most important event yet—their Empowering The Youth block party, going down Saturday, July 28, at the Balloon Fiesta Park.
