Who is Far East Movement?
Raised in Koreatown, Los Angeles, Kev Nish, Prohgress, J-Splif, and DJ Virman embody the pulse of contemporary Los Angeles: the pan-global fusion, the exotic and traditional rhythms, the idea that car stereos are castles. This has always been the idea behind the Cherry Tree/Interscope artists who made history when 2010's platinum-selling "Like a G6" was the first #1 hit ever achieved by Asian Americans.
But the Far East Movement succeed by transcending race, language, or age. They have amassed one of the world's most eclectic fan bases, united by their love of FEM's propulsive beats, infectious energy, and classically melodic cadences.
They’re a young, hip and culturally relevant band that captures the Asian-American experience in the U.S, and general market populations. Macy’s is expanding Asian Pacific American Heritage Month from a campaign that highlights the history and traditions of this demographic to one that celebrates current achievements and brings the Millenial audience more into the fold.
