Far*East Movement Overview


Information

Far East Movement (abbreviated FM) is an electro hop and electronic dance rap quartet based in Los Angeles, California, created in 2003. Members Kev Nish, Prohgress, J-Splif, and DJ Virman represent different generations of Chinese/Japanese, Korean, and Filipino backgrounds, respectively, within the Asian American community. They put together the first multicultural live music event in Koreatown, Los Angeles to benefit a drug rehabilitation center in the community called "Movementality". FM's first claim to fame was their song "Round Round" featured in the Hollywood blockbuster, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, and its subsequent soundtrack, video game and DVD. Since Round Round, they’ve been featured on various network shows including CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, HBO’s hit show Entourage, and Finishing the Game (a featured film at Sundance 2007). They were invited to perform on Power 106's Powerhouse 2009, one of the biggest Hip-Hop concerts on the west coast. Their new single "Like a G6" achieved 2nd place on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and hit #1 on iTunes as well.
