Hailing from L.A.'s Korea Town, this Asian hip hop group consisting of Kev Nish, Prohgress and J-Splif found their fourth member, DJ Virman of Powerhouse 106, in 2008.
As of 2010, they are currently signed with Lady Gaga's label, Cherrytree/Interscope Records, and were thus the opening act of her Monster Ball Japan tour. They also performed at the Powerhouse 106 concert in 2009 with the likes of Jay-Z, Kid Cudi, Pitbull, etc. Aside from performing with other notable artists (ex. Pharrell Williams & N.E.R.D.), their music has been featured on big screens such as Get Him to the Greek, CSI: Miami, Tokyo Drift, America's Best Dance Crew, etc.
It has been predicted that this all-Asian group will only continue to explosively succeed with their club-banging hits and highly charismatic performances.
“Far East Movement is a big, international group. It’s rare to find Artists who know how to rock a crowd with real, hip-hop savvy with songs that have a pop sensibility. And these talented motherf*ckers are Asian!? Welcome to the breath of fresh air and sight for sore eyes the music industry has been waiting for - shift to the worldwide movement, FM.”
—Ted Emperor Chung, President of Doggy Style Records & Snoopadelic Films – Snoop Dogg’s Fatherhood
