Music band Movits! presents with humor and energy pummeling hip hop swing from Sweden. Duo brothers Johan (vocals) and Anders (keyboards, DJ) Rensfeldt played the original hip hop reggae, but when they heard at one party American swing clarinetist Benny Goodman, they recruited saxophonist Joakim Nilsson and goes to a new musical direction. Inspired by Cabe Calloway, James Brown and Kanye West with Outkast. Named after father Movitz, one of the characters in the songs of national poet and composer of the 18. century Carl Michael Bellman. And when they released in 2008 their debut album Äppelknyckarjazz, which should be translated as „Jazz apples for thieves“, they started calling like to their original, dance music.
Although Movits! sung entirely in Swedish and only occasionally inserted into the chorus songs in English, the world paradoxically penetrated in the United States, where a huge success appeared on The Colbert Report, closely watched television talk show political satirist and comedian Stephen Colbert. Their career started after this, because their debut album was on the top of the music charts.
