You guys have a lot of music floating around the internet. Why did you decide to put these exact songs on your major label debut?
The thing is, we’re making new tracks all the time. We’ve got too many tracks to put onto an album. We just wanted to choose the most concentrated, powerful songs. And they said choose ten, and we were like “Jesus Christ! 10? That’s like choosing between f****** children.” With the songs on the internet and the five on the EP, there are…Continue

"'The Fear Inside' will drop soon, and it will blow your mind. So good."
Some of the highlight tracks for me include "The Fear Inside" (co-written with Martin Kierszenbaum) that will be released as a viral video over the next few weeks, and will be the first introduction to the new material. It is a track that will have Frankmusik fans sit up and listen. It sounds decidedly different with its driving, menacing bassline, and punctuating beat that…Continue

They might not be able to purchase their own Gulfstream yet, but the Downtown Los Angeles-based Far East Movement (FM) are certainly able to buy their fair share of bottles at the club.
After all, “Like a G6,” their platinum paean to the jet-set existence, was the No. 1 digital single last week, racking up sales of 216,000 units to complement its 10,000,000-plus plays on YouTube. The greatest Airplay Gainer on the charts, the song currently sits at No. 2 on the…Continue

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…Continue

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)…Continue
