A lot of updates

December 18, 2010

Once again, sorry for the lack of updates. Here’s a summary of what I’ve missed in the past two months:

– BBC Radio 1 aired the Electro Swing special on November 20th. You can find it on the Downloads page or just click here. Photos can be found on Facebook and a behind the scenes video by Andy Wilkin can be found on Vimeo.
Andy also has a video from when they were at the Paradise Gardens festival.

– Zacke uploaded a video of him and Movits! doing an acoustic version of ‘Småstadsblues’ backstage before a gig which can be found on his website.
Back in October Zacke’s album was officially released in North America by the record label 59 North Recordings. An interview about it can be found on NSD.

– The Swedish radio station Notion Blend did an interview with Johan which you can listen to on YouTube.

– They will play the festival Putte I Parken next year between 6-9 July.

– They’ve shot a video for ‘Sammy Davis Jr’ and Zacke has posted some behind the scenes photos on his Flickr.

– The guys have also played a festival in Bratislava, BD Pop’s Social Club, a Swedish PR company’s opening party and Expo 2010 in Shanghai. I don’t have any links though, it seems like I lost my bookmarks for them.

– Everyone’s favorite Gothenburger, Gillis, mentioned on his blog that the album will be release in March with a 2 week long Sweden tour and then they’re heading to the States in April. Unfortunately, Gillis won’t be with the guys on the tour.

Norrlandskit

– On Thursday they played at Musikhjälpen where they’re also auctioning off a Norrlands-package which includes a Sami-hoodie, a hat, a pair of “näbb”
(beak) shoes and a pre-party with the guys.
To bid on the package go here. It ends on Sunday at noon.

While at Musikhjälpen they performed two songs and a late night freestyle jam with Frej Larsson (Slagsmålsklubben, Maskinen etc.), Dida & Timbuktu.

The Bestival Radio interview and performance are now on the Downloads page. I tried my best to fix the volume, but you still might have to turn it up when they talk and turn it down when they perform.

Better late than never…right?

October 2, 2010

Here’s a summary of what I’ve missed during the last couple of weeks:

– The Valvträsk festival became a huge success with 1500 visitors. Articles about it can be found on Kuriren & NSD and a video report on 24Norrbotten.

– Photos from Popkomm can be found here, here and on Raw Investigations. An interview with Movits! can also be found on Raw Investigations website.
They also did an interview with BerlinIsMusic.tv which can be found here.

– Zacke has released two new videos. One for the remix of ‘Men Nanting!’ and one for ‘Konsten Att Släppa Taget’.

– Video of Movits! at Bestival can be found on Vimeo. I also have an interview and 3 live tracks that Bestival Radio did that I’m gonna upload. I will post an update when they’re up.

– Last week Evolution was released. Those of you outside of Sweden are able to find it on Amazon under the name “This Is Swedish Hip Hop Evolution”.

I made a YouTube playlist with all the videos in this post so it’s easier for you guys to find them all.
