Far East Movement (FM) – Hip-hop and electronic music band from the USA
Far East Movement was created in 2003 in Los Angeles. Three out of four of its members were friends since childhood. When they were in high school, the artists started performing together. As a trio, they recorded songs and uploaded them to the Internet. They also performed in the local clubs. In 2001, the band started working under the name “Emcees Anonymous". Later, the artists changed it to Far East Movement in honor of one of their songs.
In April 2005, FM recorded an EP, Audio-Bio, which featured the band’s early work.
In 2006, they released an EP, For the Folks n' Family. Several months later the debut LP, Folk Music came out. The song "Round Round", featured in that album, appeared in the movie The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. This brought the band the long-awaited popularity. After the album’s release, the trio decided to devote itself to music. They went on two world tours and released a new mixtape, Flavored Animal Droppings. It was already tough to book Far East Movement for any private event due to their busy schedule.
