Far East Movement (FM) hails from Koreatown, Los Angeles but has always had a global outlook on music. The group attained platinum hits ranging from the US, the United Kingdom, China, to South Korea. Since becoming the first Asian American group to hit #1 on the Billboard Charts with their smash hit “Like a G6” and following up with another Top 5 on Billboard with “Rocketeer” co-written by Bruno Mars, they have kept the momentum going most recently with two #1 hits (“Bamboo” and “Lovebird”) on China’s Netease platform in 2018. FM also showcased itself as one of the most exciting touring acts in world music performing at some of the most prestigious festivals all around the world like Ultra Music Festival, Tomorrowland, and Electric Daisy Carnival.
FM’s current focus is Transparent Arts, a company they built with their childhood friends, focused on supporting talented artists in different mediums. Their roster includes global pop icons The Rose, BI, Agnez Mo, actress Liza Soberano, rapper Dumbfoundead, and DJ/ Producer Yultron. FM has a joint label with Trap City, one of the largest dance music channels in the world (14 million subscribers), named BredNButter with a myriad of releases having amassed millions of plays in a little over a year of existence. They’ve also ventured into other fields, opening up a popular New American restaurant named Intercrew in the heart of Koreatown.
