Swing On, Sweden!

It’s music that catches me off guard; or music that comes out of left field that excites me. Well, with MOVITS!, a trio of hepcats outta Sweden, their unique firepower brings both – and then some more. Why even try to classify it? It’s a big swing sound with traces of jazz to drive the rapid-fire hip-hop delivery. While bouncing around to this freshness, a few people of the past sprang to mind: Lucas, Scatman, and Mambo Number 5. Don’t be scared though, these Swedes have immortal staying power thanks to their infectious formula….

With this, I like the beat and don’t give a damn about the lyrics.

    This is an interesting mix of music here. I certainly appreciate the eccentricities within but I must admit something. I’ve never been a fan of that Lou Bega record. And although this track beats that track over its head with a heavy club, I can still hear traces of it which annoys me a little.

    Either way, Swedish Rap is extremely satisfying. Jump on it.

    I hear too much Lou Bega too….brings back memories also of Squirrel Nut Zippers and Brian Setzer Orchestra. I just don’t want to relive that. Who knows though, maybe he’s rapping about Jimbo Mathus being a douchebag. Speaking of which. Mammoth Records is having a common 21-year reunion this weekend. http://mammothxx.com/
