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 this debut album.

About the Artist

Far East Movement all grew up together in Los Angeles. They were influenced by the thriving downtown LA scene and a wide array of music from fellow West Coast classics like the Pharcyde and Dr Dre, to the dance music of DJ Tiesto and Daft Punk, to LA rockers like Guns N Roses, Linkin Park and Blink 182. "Our musical inspiration is as large as what we can hold on our iPods."

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.

These guys are not an overnight success. They've been doing their thing for close to a decade. How often do you see music groups stay together for that long? It doesn't matter if there are four people in the crowd or thousands... they will rock the show like it's a stadium concert. Blood, sweat, tears, hard work and perseverance have produced this historic album. Pop in the CD. There's something for everybody.

Buy the album and support the Movement! Show the label that giving Far East Movement an opportunity paid off!

I got this album after hearing "Girls on the Dance Floor" and "Like a G6" and had NO idea this would become my favorite album.

All the songs make me want to jump up and dance around. I figured if I liked two songs, I might be okay with the their other songs but had no idea I'd love this album so much.

Breaking it down....

The good:
- Great beats and fun lyrics.
- Girls on the Dance Floor
- Like a G6
- Rocketeer
- OMG
- She owns the night
- So What?
- Don't Look Now
...Oh, wait, I think I'm listing their album.... hahaha

The bad:
- (uh)

In summary, I love, love, love this album. It's a fun, high-energy, electronic, dance-worthy album.

I am very happy with the CD. I had only one hope before I bought it. That hope was that most of the other songs have the same mixture of styles as "Like a G6". Hip-hop, techno, and pop... and they were! I cant believe there arent several other songs from the CD on the radio yet.

As for Amazon... I paid a few cents less that what the CD costs in shipping to have it delivered to my door on its release date. Money wasted... it came a day after its release date. I could have just went and picked it up myself and saved the money.

I normally don't review products on amazon, but I wanted to support these guys because this is one of the best albums of the year. It's just one of those albums that you can listen to the whole thing without skipping any songs. If you like the singles you've already heard on the radio or in a club, you won't be disappointed!

Just kidding. Like a G6 put this group on the map world wide, but there are much stronger songs and talents further into the album. If you have doubts put them aside and support a group that isn't cookie cutter and is earning their keep.

Free Wired is one of the best dance CDs I've ever heard. Attracting an array of star talent including Ryan Tedder, Keri Hilson, and Snoop Dogg for collaborations, Far East Movement is no joke. Whether you're getting your workout on or hanging out with friends, Free Wired will get you moving.(I feel like a jack-ass for dismissing Far East Movement when the infectious "Like A G6" went viral on the internet). Check out the following cuts:

<<<So What>>> -I've found my party theme song. I go out of my mind as soon as it starts.
<<<Rocketeer>>> - This is mid-tempo bliss and perfect for spring love. I love Ryan Tedder's vocals here.
<<<Don't Look Now>>> - Very nice house cut featuring Keri Hilson in her element.
<<<Fighting For Air>>> - Dougie anyone?

Love the single " Like A G6". From that, I thought the album would contain more dance/rap singles. Unfortunately, the rest of the CD is rap. It isn't what I was looking for. Some may like it. I just liked the one song.

I purchased this album because I really enjoyed the song G6. Then I heard them on the Reese's commercial and liked the beat to that song. So instead of only purchasing those 2 songs, I purchased the entire album.

I can gladly say that I do not regret the decision. All of the songs on here are great and I don't mind dropping it in the CD player in my car and just letting it roll.
