      Bio

      An influential group in the rising Asian American music scene, The Far*East Movement (FM) was formed by emcees: Kev Nish (Kevin Nishimura), Prohgress (James Roh), and J-Splif (Jae Choung). 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. In 2003, FM produced their own large-scale hip hop show in Koreatown called “Movementality”, to benefit a local drug rehabilitation center. Through this event they were discovered by international club/ events promoter, Carl Choi, who shared the vision of strengthening the identity of Asian Americans in the entertainment industy, helping the Far*East Movement achieve global notoriety.

      The group released their first mixtape, the “AudioBio” in 2005, distributing over 20,000 copies independently. The compilation, which is an introduction into the world of the FM, includes guest appearances from artists such as DJ Honda and Jin the Emcee. The “Audio Bio” opened the door for FM into television media, gaining them features on the Si TV Network, the AZN TV Network, UPN, and the show ‘Crime Scene Investigation’ (C.S.I.). In the summer of 2005 the trio embarked on their first world tour, performing in cities such as Seattle, Houston, San Francisco, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Singapore. At the present time, The Far*East Movement continues on its rigorous show schedule while also adding the finishing touches to their debut album, which is slated for release in the first quarter of 2006.
