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.


– 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.

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 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.




Uhrturmkasematte and Valvträsk

August 18, 2010

A bunch of pictures from Movits! show at Uhrturmkasematte in Graz, Austria can be found on Flickr.


Valvträsk may sound like a village in a Pettson & Findus movie, but it does exist for real and lies about 50km above Boden. With its population of 25 people they’re now arranging a minifestival on August 20th with performances by Movits!, Zacke, Timbuktu, The Establishment, The New Man and Tingsek.
An interview with the organizer Karl-Lennart Eriksson can be found on TV4’s website and more info about the festival can be found on Valvträsk’s website.




YouTube videos

May 27, 2010

I’ve uploaded some old interviews with the guys on YouTube + an instrumental version of ‘Äppelknyckarjazz’ and an old english track by Zacke.
I have so far added english subtitles on one of the videos, but I’m gonna try to do the rest of them soon. If anyone wants to help out just send me an
e-mail at 

Unfortunately, WMG has blocked ‘Äppelknyckarjazz’ and the Expressen interview if you live in any of these countries. Which seems to be every country that is not in Scandinavia.





Cooking with Zacke

May 16, 2010 visited Zacke in Stockholm to hang out and watch him cook a typical dish from Norrland called pitepalt. Also visiting is Johan, who has a great discussion about shorts.
Unfortunately, there’s no subtitles for those of you who don’t understand Swedish.





May 12, 2010

Evolution is a collaboration CD that documents the new sounds of Swedish hiphop with names like Lazee, Maskinen, Advance Patrol, Mange Schmidt etc. Both Movits! and Zacke got a track on it.
There’s no official release date yet, but it will be released this fall.

Full tracklist can be found here!





Zacke updates

May 9, 2010

What I don’t find on Google, I find on Twitter…but then I have to go back on Google and find information longer than 140 characters.

Thanks to Timbuktu’s Twitter I got to know that Zacke and Anders performed at Vårmässan(the spring fair) in Luleå. A housing company called Lulebo had built a 8m tall replica of one of the houses on Lulsundsberget and put a stage on top of it.


Zacke has also been working on a remix for his song ‘Men Nanting!’.
A couple of weeks ago Afasi was in the studio laying down a verse and now recently, Timbuktu.
