“Movits! is like an extra shot of espresso in your morning coffee, a dynamite alarm clock that awakens your nervous system with the soul-throbbing joy of a power-driven swing dance throwdown.”
“They say I sound old school, baby, like Frank and Sammy Davis,” sings Movits! lead singer Johan Rensfeldt, but the Rat Pack never mixed old-school swing with hip hop, and they couldn’t sing a word of Swedish. Movits! gained international notoriety following an electric performance on Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” and after Comedy Central released the digital version of their debut CD, the release reached #2 on the iTunes hip hop chart and #18 overall.
According to According to Indyweek.com, “Movits! is an explosive combination of genres: the quick-spitting lyrics of hip hop, the crowd-moving thump of big-band style bass, and a deep-souled saxophone that carried the rhythm on a number of tunes in a way that most guitarists dream of doing.”
