This is a little piece I wrote for the magazine I had to produce at university. It was written a while back, before Christmas, so it is a bit out-dated! I will be posting a more recent article about Far East Movement soon! Enjoy =]
The entertaining, down-town LA boys of Far*East Movement have come back with another club-hitting song. Like a G6 was a massive hit in the clubs last winter and luckily, the boys are back with another song which will definitely be a club anthem this winter! Jello hit the iTunes hot 100 chart at number Seven in its first week.
The Far*East Movement lads have definitely given thought into when to release a new track since their fans must be dying for some new material after their first mainstream album Free Wired. It’s a great idea to keep fans keen for more by release a track of their next album which hasn’t even been given a release date yet.
But are we just waiting for another album with the same sounds of Free Wired? Far*East Movement have definitely got a fresh sound that stands out from other hip-hop based groups. Far*East Movement are signed to the Alternative-Pop record label Cherry Tree London, which other artists such as LMFAO & FrankMusik are signed to. Kev-Nish and the rest of the group have pressure to sound new and different. But it seems that the Los Angeles based group have nothing to worry about because it looks as though they are making music effortlessly.
Kev-Nish speaks about how the album will have,
‘a few songs that show the hip-hop roots and the ‘Rocketeer’ style, and heavy synth dance tracks as well, but the majority of the album is going to be the L.A. dirty bass sound’.
Sound a bit like the first album? Regardless, it won’t be a disappointment if the second album (rumoured to be called Dirty Bass) sounds like their previous album Free Wired. Kev also comments on how him & the boys are trying to take the album to a different level;
‘To accentuate the bass, we bought an old school refurbished 1989 Cadillac limo. I used to install car stereos, so I’m going to hook up the system myself and we’re going to take all of our songs in this car and drive around in L.A. and vibe out’.
With the success of their first album, I’m sure Far*East Movement won’t find it hard to get the right sound for their album to succeed. They just have to stay true to themselves & the next album will be a masterpiece.
