Synopsis

Product Description
Far East Movement (also known as FM) has bridged the gap between underground party records and mainstream hip-hop and pop. They blend elements of hip-hop, pop, electro and dance to create an original sound and lifestyle they call `Free Wired'. The group translates this `Free Wired' way of life by constantly staying interactive and living the lifestyle it promotes. Kev Nish, Prohgress, J-Splif, and DJ Virman, always donning stylish shades, skinny ties, and shiny blazers and fresh kicks have taken the current Los Angeles club scene global, already having to their credit two world tours, numerous song placements on television and film, and a # 1 song on Los Angeles radio all before they even dropped their debut album, appropriately titled, Free Wired, scheduled for a Fall 2010 release on Cherrytree Records/Interscope. Cherrytree Records head, Martin Kierzenbaum, was inspired with the direction FM was taking with their careers. "Martin told us, `You guys have a lifestyle and party that we want to be invited to, we not only like your songs, but love your sound and movement,'" Kev Nish said of Kierzenbaum, who oversees the careers of Cherrytree Records artists Lady Gaga, Keane, La Roux and Tokio Hotel. Martin was moved by FM so much that he passed their music on to mega-star Lady Gaga's camp that led to an invitation out on her overseas Monster Ball tour dates in April 2010. FM call it, "a `Free Wired' moment and incredible learning experience...she puts 200 percent into 2-hour shows, back to back nights, every night, it's inspirational." While on the road they say they got some key advice from one of today's most exciting and theatrical live performers. They went back overseas the following month when they were invited out by N*E*R*D*. It is FM's stage energy and the `Free Wired' lifestyle that started to change the way people reacted to their music. Not just the energy and lifestyle, but fashion and technology play a huge part. "We've played at every club in southern Cali and thrown parties, `geekin out' at friends lofts and rooftops in downtown LA until the sun came up." "Our routine and fashion allow us to party all night, then head straight to an important business meeting in the morning, we always stay business fresh, plus we keep shades on to hide the lack of sleep," jokes Prohgress. "Girls On The Dance Floor" became an undeniable, high-energy track that prompted women from all over to record videos of themselves dancing to the song and upload the clips online. The song exploded the latter part of 2009 in nightclubs and topped the playlists in L.A. The requests and heavy rotation earned Far East Movement a spot on a prestigious L.A. concert headlined by Jay-Z. The follow up record "Like A G6" received an even more rabid reaction from listeners. "That one had over a million hits on YouTube before it even had one play on the radio," Kev Nish said about the song they put together in two hours with Los Angeles producers The Cataracs. Free Wired will slow the tempo up on the album with the upcoming single `Rocketeer'. This radio-ready massive pop ballad features OneRepublic front man Ryan Tedder. "Our next single is going to surprise a lot of Far East Movement fans in a great way, " states J-Splif. "It's definitely outside the box for us, but we love to push our musical boundaries." There's also the fast tempo, pulsating, dance love song called "Don't Look Now" featuring Keri Hilson, also produced by the Stereotypes. "The Far East Movement reps the diverse music fan that hits up 3 clubs playing all different music in 1 night, with a flossy and stylish fashion interest, low ridin' around LA in a fresh set of rims and a fresher pair of kicks, then hits the after-after party in the early a.m. and finally stumbles home to go on the computer and live all that online" the group says.
