Movits! returns to Bloomington with their special Swedish blend of hip-hop and swing. Johan Rensfeldt (vocals), Anders Rensfeldt (DJ, sampling, and other instruments), and Joakim Nilsson (sax) bring flair and energy to every Lotus performance. They call their music Äppelknyckarjazz (“Apple-stealing jazz,” after trousers worn by Swedish street kids in the ’30s and ’40s). Even if you don’t speak their language, you’ll get the groove. “Movits! sounds like a party, pure and simple, and a party needs no translation” (Consequenceofsound.net).
