    Biography

    Movits! is a Swedish music group from Luleå. The group plays swing mixed with hip hop.
    Their debut album Äppelknyckarjazz, literally translated as Apple swiper jazz, was released in November 2008 and has been recognized by national Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter.
    In the United States the album Äppelknyckarjazz is released by Comedy Central Records.

    The name Movits! alludes to Fader Movitz, a character in the Epistles of Fredman by Swedish 18th-century poet Carl Michael Bellman. The band, however, replaced the last character of the name Z with an S in order to avoid being associated with Swedish bands playing dansband style music, such as Lasse Stefanz, Svänzons or Larz-Kristerz.

    On 27 July 2009, Movits! was featured on the American satirical news show The Colbert Report. The band was interviewed and performed their song "Fel del av gården". Colbert mentioned on his show on 30 July 2009, that the band's album Äppelknyckarjazz recently had gained significant popularity on Amazon.com and claimed that their appearance on his program was significantly responsible for their newfound popularity (referred to as "The Colbert Bump").

    The band is made up of brothers Johan Jivin' Rensfeldt (vocals), Anders Rensfeldt (multi-instrumentalist and DJ) and saxophonist Jocke Nilsson.

    They have also recently finished five performances at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Showcase in Austin, Texas.
