Your Pop Alternative Source
November 7th 2011, Los Angeles – Far East Movement's (Kev Nish, Prohgress, J Splif and DJ Virman) new single, “Jello” (Cherrytree/Interscope Records) recently debuted on iTunes and digital retailers. The hypnotic high energy song features FM’s crisp rapping locked in with dance-rap sensation Rye Rye’s sassy vocals, and an infectious track with booming bass fitting of FM’s upcoming album and sound, Dirty Bass.
"’Jello’ is that 'trunk bass' record for the dance floor that pushes the sound created with ‘Like A G6,’” exclaims Kev Nish. “It’s a song made to shake your bass, a new school bootyshake anthem.”
Dirty Bass has a dynamic universal party sound that brings elements of booming trunk bass to the dancefloor. It furthers the ‘808’ heavy bass, dance and electronic sound created by FM’s previous hits “Girls On The Dance Floor,” “Like A G6” and “So What.” FM shaped the sound with The Stereotypes and assistance from producers RedOne, David Guetta, Bangladesh and Martin “Cherry Cherry Boom Boom” Kierszenbaum.

Like A G6, the lead single off FM’s debut Free Wired, earned the group triple platinum-plus sales status, a top spot on Billboard's Hot 100 chart and multiple award nominations. Their follow-up, “Rocketeer” featuring Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, became another Top 10 platinum selling hit song.
“’Rocketeer’ was amazing and allowed us to show the diversity and connect with a new audience,” declares Prohgress. “’Jello’ is our return to the clubs and parties with that FM dirty bass sound!”
This past year has been busy for FM, from touring overseas with Rihanna to their participation in the I Am Still Music Tour with Lil Wayne and their upcoming international Cherrytree Pop Alternative Tour with LMFAO. Highlights include their performance at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards with Ryan Tedder and Snoop Dogg, where "Like A G6” was nominated for Best Rap Song. “Like A G6” also won the 2011 American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) Award for the Top Pop Song. Finally, the group is nominated at the upcoming MTV Europe Music Awards for Best Push Act and Best New Act.
