Biography

Columbia, South Carolina, USA (2004 – present)

There is more than one artist named The Movement:
1) rock/reggae/hip hop band from Philadelphia, PA
2) MOD band from Copenhagen, Denmark. http://themovement.dk/
3) techno group from Los Angeles, CA
4) grime collective from London, UK
5) Indie/Rock band from Dublin, Ireland


1) The Movement is a // band originally formed in Columbia, South Carolina, USA in 2004. The original lineup consisted of Josh Swain, Jordan Miller and Jon Ruff (DJ Riggles).

In March 2004 they released their first studio album, On Your Feet, which was recorded and mixed in 24 studio hours at Pat Casey’s Modern Music Studios in Columbia, South Carolina. On Your Feet has proved a mainstay of the reggae/rock genre and is listed at #9 on ThePier.org’s 10 Essential Reggae Rock Albums.

The band continued to build their following with nonstop touring throughout the Southeastern United States. They enjoyed success in opening for national acts such as Steel Pulse, Blues Traveler, Slightly Stoopid, The Wailers, Ludacris, G. Love & Special Sauce, Common, Long Beach Shortbus, Wu-Tang Clan and 311. Their fanbase was growing steadily but the band wasn’t breaking any new ground and the trio began losing interest. After DJ Riggles left the band, the remaining duo found themselves at a crossroads until meeting Philadelphonic Studios producer Chris DiBeneditto (Philadelphonic Records), who was looking for new talent to work with and, having seen the band several times, knew they had enormous potential.
