Richard Z. Kruspe (RAMMSTEIN, EMIGRATE) has contributed guest vocals to “Move It”, the latest single from Tomoyasu Hotei, the Japanese guitarist, singer-songwriter and producer who is best known internationally for his “Kill Bill” theme “Battle Without Honor Or Humanity”. Echoing the upbeat industrial vibe of the song and shot in Berlin, the accompanying video is dynamic and starkly atmospheric with intense performances from both Hotei and Richard.
Richard explained his inspiration for the lyrics to Metal Hammer: “I listened to it and the first image I had was this Bond character in my mind. I was seeing a guy going through streets and pushing everything away. I thought, ‘Oh, that’s interesting, let’s try that’. And we pretty much recorded the vocals in one or two days.”
“Move It” was released as two-track single, featuring a “Hounds” remix of the song, done by Olly Burden, known for collaborating with THE PRODIGY on their most recent album.
“Move It” is taken from Hotei’s debut U.K. album “Strangers”, which was released last year through Spinefarm and is a wide-ranging body of work with a dramatic sonic palette demonstrating Hotei’s diversity as a songwriter and virtuoso guitarist.
