FM Interview with SpeakerBoxxx.com

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

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…
