FM Interview with

Atek: How did you come up with the track, "Like a G6"? What's the story behind the song?

FM: It was inspired by the first song that we wrote, "Girls on the Dancefloor", which is produced by the Stereotypes. We wanted another song that was similar to "Girls on the Dancefloor". One of our friends who had a mutual relationship with the Cataracs called us over to their studio. For two hours, we got blizzard and just wrote the song on the same evening. We didn't think much of it and… Continue

FM radio is getting Free Wired

The Ticker: We know that you guys grew up together in Los Angeles but can you describe how you formed as a musical group? When did you start working on music together?

FM: We would freestyle to whatever was playing on the radio in parking lots around downtown L.A. in high school, and right out of school, we'd lug a huge home PC and an old school monitor to an attic of a friend's house and teach ourselves how to record tracks for fun to put on… Continue

Billboard Reviews 'Free Wired'

If Justin Timberlake recorded a "FutureSex/ LoveSounds 2.0," it could very well have sounded like Los Angeles Asian-American group Far*East Movement's debut album, "Free Wired." The set explodes with strong hooks, synths and sparkles, thanks to a hot roster of producers (Roger Sanchez, the Smeezingtons) and several heavy-hitting collaborations (Snoop Dogg, Keri Hilson). The quartet's members are rappers at their core, offering maximum swagger on the Beastie Boys-referenced track "So…

4 Stars for $O$ from the Montreal Gazette

Die Antwoord $0$

The incredible interweb hype surrounding Die Antwoord’s breakout Enter the Ninja video (closing in on 8 million views) has led to a five-album Interscope deal, beginning with this reissue of last year’s online full-length. It’s more a compendium of Die Antwoord highlights than a new album, although the new Diplo-produced single Evil Boy (featuring another outlandish video) points to the band’s potential to tap into multiple demographics (club-pop-rap)…
