Far East Movement (abbreviated FM) is an Asian-American hip hop and electronic music group based in Los Angeles. The group formed in 2003 and as of August 2018 consists of Kev Nish (Kevin Nishimura), Prohgress (James Roh), DJ Virman (Virman Coquia), and formerly J-Splif (Jae Chong).
Their 2010 single, “Like a G6”, featuring pop-rap duo The Cataracs and singer Dev hit number one on both the Billboard Hot 100 chart and on the iTunes chart in late October 2010, making them the first Asian-American group to earn a number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Among their other chart successes are: “Rocketeer” featuring Ryan Tedder of One Republic, which peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100; “Turn Up the Love”, which peaked within the top ten of the charts in the United Kingdom, and their 2012 remix of the song “Get Up (Rattle)” by the Bingo Players, which topped the charts in the United Kingdom.
The group’s latest album, Identity, is the first release under their own record label Transparent Music. Identity focuses on bridging Eastern artists with FM’s Western dance music roots. The album received a positive review in Billboard magazine; the single “Freal Luv” with Marshmello featuring Tinashe and Chanyeol from the chart topping K-pop group EXO, received 40 million plays on YouTube. Far East Movement has also branched out with a number of collaborations on labels Ministry of Sound, Dim Mak, and Ultra.
In 2016, Far East Movement’s company, Transparent Arts (TA), moved into artist management. TA manages seven artists of various genres, including Korean-American K-pop superstar Tiffany Young, rappers Dumbfoundead and Year of the Ox, DJ producers Yultron, Autolaser, and singer Satica. The artists have garnered millions of social media plays, sold out national tours, and have released tracks through labels Owsla, Spinnin’, Armada, and Universal.
FM also has a joint label, BredNButter, with Trap City, a large YouTube dance music channel with more than ten million subscribers. BredNButter’s many releases have amassed millions of plays in total in a little over a year of existence.
They also founded Identity Festival, a festival celebrating Asian American Heritage with the City of Los Angeles on the steps of City Hall that gathered over 10,000 attendees in 2018 with headliners Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park and K-pop star Jay Park.
Far East Movement is in the process of recording their next full-length release.
