FM (also known as ?The Far*East Movement?) was formed by emcees: Kev Nish, Prohgress and J-Splif. The three childhood friends found their love for music fresh out of high school and created recognition for the group in the Los Angeles underground scene through energetic live shows and a strong Internet presence. The group has achievements on an independent level that some major label groups could only dream to attain.
FM has embarked on 2 World Tours (including the USA, South America, Canada, and Asia), signed distribution deals in Japan and Korea (Avex Network and JF Productions respectively), garnered multiple features on MTV World, and also featured music on worldwide media such as ?CSI,? ?Fast & Furious Tokyo Drift? and ?Finishing the Game? (a featured film at Sundance 2007). FM was also the first Asian act to perform at the Sundance Film Festival's prestigious Music Caf? Gala hosted by ASCAP.
Currently, FM is working on its sophomore album, entitled ?ANIMAL,? slated for an early 2008 release.
