Far East Movement
Enter the dimension of Dirty Bass, the mashed-up, thoroughly modern existence of the Far East Movement: windows down, sub-woofers rattling, cars spinning on chrome. The weather is warm. The drinks are cold. Beats and booties are shaking at high BPMs. Living the life.
“Dirty Bass is LA electro-rap meets Miami booty shake meets Dutch house and the lifestyle that embodies that” says Kev Nish. “You don’t need a fancy whip, but as long as your stereo is bumping, everything’s alright.”
But really, Dirty Bass is the Far East Movement. Raised in Koreatown, Los Angeles, Kev Nish, Prohgress, J-Spliff, and DJ Virman embody the pulse of contemporary Los Angeles: the pan-global fusion, the exotic and traditional rhythms, the idea that car stereos are castles. This has always been the idea behind the Cherry Tree/Interscope artists who made history when 2010’s platinum-selling “Like a G6” was the first #1 hit ever achieved by Asian Americans.
