Even after the usual rapid, busy streets of Downtown Los Angeles were emptied out, the boys of Far East Movement (FM) & friends kept the night young on Monday, June 11 by celebrating the launch of their 2nd album, “Dirty Bass” at the laid-back venue Marvimon. As DJ Virman spun a few of their latest tracks and later joined the rest of the FM crew to perform live, they took everyone back to the time where, what FM called, “classic, 80s, bass hip hop” music once blared through oversized stereos.

Staying true to the idea that gave birth to the album, the indoor and outdoor spaces at the Marvimon were transformed to an up-scale house party/disco club with a modern twist. Underneath the rotating disco lights, the crowd took pictures at the photo booth where Dirty Bass themed props were provided. Others sipped on Rémy Martin XO cocktails and/or ate tacos where the chicken or beef were served fresh off the pan. Fly girls dressed in sexy, vintage inspired clothing for the modern girl and wore nerdy chic glasses stood on mini platforms and danced to FM songs spun by a DJ on stage. After an hour so, Far East Movement came out from the crowd and gathered their eager fans, or “family,” as Kev Nish called them, as they took their places on stage and brought on the real party.
After introducing themselves and the people that gave inspiration to “Dirty Bass,” such as The Beastie Boys and Run DMC, DJ Virman officially started the long-awaited Listening Party. Tracks from their album, which was released at midnight, or on June 12, were first spun and clips of several tracks like “Turn Up the Love” feat. Cover Drive, and “Flossy” feat. Kay were played. Then the boys of the Far East Movement reminded the crowd why they were so loved and recognized before they did what they did best: entertaining. The album’s single, “Dirty Bass” feat. Tyga, “Where the Wild Things Are” feat. Crystal Kay, “Live my Life” feat. Justin Bieber, and the oldie, but goodie, “Like a G6” were performed live. The crowd was driven to excitement and insanity from another set of 80’s, classic, dirty bass hip hop music with, of course, the fusion of their signature sound, Dance. Just as Kev Nish said, “Feel free to dance – it’s a celebration” in the middle of a song, the listening party for their much anticipated 2nd album, “Dirty Bass,” was indeed one hell of a celebration. ”Dirty Bass” is now out in stores for everyone to own!
