Far East Movement is a hard group not to like because they have a little bit of everything in their music recipe – a dash of electro, a tea spoon of hip-hop, and a whole lot of pop. They have also become role models for the Asian community. We spoke to the guys recently after performing to a sold out show in Toronto.
With the MMVAs only three days away, anticipation is rising for Toronto’s biggest party. Today’s feature will take a look at Far East Movement and Dev, who will be performing on the big night.
Bridging the gap between underground party records and mainstream hip-hop and pop, Far East Movement and Dev have gone straight to the #1 spots with songs such as ‘Like a G6.’
The group is comprised of a dynamic foursome that uses hip-hop, pop, electro and dance to create truly unique music. Kev Nish, Prohgress, J-Splif, and DJ Virman have already completed two world tours. The group’s music has also been featured on numerous television shows and films, including ‘Get Him To The Greek’ and ‘Gossip Girl.’
Dev, who frequently performs and contributes to the group, holds her own as well. She’s had many hits on her own, including the infectious ‘Bass Down Low.’ She is currently finishing up a debut studio album, ‘The Night The Sun Came Up,’ and is touring with User and Akon on Usher’s ‘OMG Tour.’
Check out a video we recently did with Dev, and don’t forget: Enter our contest for a chance to win a wristband to the 2011 Muchmusic Video Awards.
Have you ever heard of Dev? Well you should have if you know the tunes “Like a G6″ and “Bass Down Low.” Dev is becoming huge after working with acts like Far East Movement and The Cataracs. She spoke with us about grinding it out all these years, and she helps us define her musical style, along with showing us her fingers’ gold chains (watch and you will see what that means).
