FAR*EAST MOVEMENT

The Far*East Movement (also known as FM), hailing from the clubs and streets of Los Angeles, is one of the freshest crews representing the next generation of artists.

Members Kev Nish, Prohgress, J-Splif, and DJ Virman have created a huge industry buzz with major companies, radio stations, and club djs worldwide through their international appeal, energetic live shows, and collaborations with top street wear companies. They put together the first multicultural live music event in Koreatown, LA to benefit a drug rehabilitation center in the their 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 other network shows including "CSI: Miami," "CSI: NY," HBO’s hit show "Entourage," and "Finishing the Game."

They were invited to perform on Power 106's Powerhouse 2009, one of biggest Hip-Hop concerts on the west coast, performing with the line-up including Jay-Z, Kid Cudi, Sean Paul, New Boyz, Pitbull, Lil Jon, LMFAO, Ya Boy, Flo Rida, and the Black Eyed Peas.

Finding their inspiration from the diverse city blocks and nightclub scene of Southern California, FM has built a strong internet fan base and a new lifestyle brand for the next generation of youth around the world.
 

FUN FACTS:

They garnered multiple features on MTV World, and also featured music on worldwide media such as FOX's "So You Think You Can Dance", MTV's "America's Best Dance Crew", ABC Family's Lincoln

Heights, and many others.

FM was the first Asian act to perform at the Sundance Film Festival's prestigious Music Café Gala hosted by ASCAP, and was also recently a featured act at the Cannes Film Festival in France.
