After graduating from high school the group started taking music more seriously, doing shows wherever they could at Los Angeles bars, clubs and lofts. One of their earlier shows was a successful benefit show that raised money for a drug rehab center that helped a lot of their friends in the community. This came before the group even had their first song recorded. The group loved to perform and perfect their stage presence wherever they could.
"Another big part of our movement is how we stay connected to the fans ourselves," states J-Splif. "They demanding our songs on radio and at the clubs, so we're always listening and try to give back. We used to go to a club and watch all night just to see how the crowd would react to certain songs the DJ played and soak it in." "It's important that we translate to everyone what we're about on this album," Kev Nish added. "We want people to feel free to 'geek out' however they feel comfortable and stay wired with us whether partying or home online. Live Free and Stay Wired is where is stems from."
Another influence came when they saw Kanye West live and the kind of performance he achieved. "I remember we saw a Kanye show," Prohgress said. "He threw a towel into the audience and people were fighting for it. We wanted to give that type of energy." "It's always been about that energy and that lifestyle at our shows."
You already might be familiar with Far East Movement's music unknowingly as they also receive placements that are as impressive as artists who have already reached superstar status. "Girls On The Dance Floor" was featured in a major scene in the hit film Get Him To The Greek, MTV's America's Best Dance Crew season 4 finale, CBS' CSI Miami, and FOX's So You Think You Can Dance.
Their music has also been heard on television hits Gossip Girl, Entourage, ABC Family's Lincoln Heights, 2009 Miss America pageant and in the blockbuster film and video game "Fast and Furious". They were also featured performers at both the Cannes Film Festival and Sundance Film Festival in 2010.
Their tours have taken them to Asia, South America, UK, Korea, Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Brazil, Netherlands and all over the US.
Far East Movement is now anxious to take advantage of all the opportunities their fast-rising career will afford them. Considering their independent, go-getter mindset, talent, and willingness to break out of the box, Far East Movement is indeed setting themselves up for the long run.
