Music Mania: Far East Movement

It’s Friday, a.k.a competition o’clock, so let’s unleash our next Music Mania giveaway on Nokia Connects! This week we are featuring the Far East Movement, a band from Koreatown in LA who are infecting everyone with their Dirty Bass!

Cherrytree Records boast some of the world’s best musical talent on their roster right now and the Far East Movement encapsulate the label’s ethos. The band includes: Kev Nish, Prohgress, J-Splif and DJ Virman, an exuberant  group of  musicians that ‘succeed by transcending race, language and age’.

Who haven’t they toured with yet, is the question I ask to you all? Far East Movement have supported Lady Gaga, Rihanna, La Roux, LMFAO and Lil Wayne, to mention  just a few minor names in the industry! They’re pretty sought after right now and I’ve got a feeling that their home-made Dirty Bass is to blame for this success…

In the words of their very own Kev Nish,

Dirty Bass is LA electro-rap, meets Miami booty shake, meets Dutch house and the lifestyle that embodies that…you don’t need a fancy whip, but as long as your stereo is bumping, everything’s alright. Enter the dimension of Dirty Bass, the mashed-up, thoroughly modern existence of the Far East Movement: windows down, sub-woofers rattling, cars spinning on chrome. The weather is warm. The drinks are cold. Beats and booties are shaking at high BPMs. Living the life.”

Here is the smash hit song ‘Live My Life’ featuring Justin Bieber from their new album:
