Asian-American artists Far East Movement have never been the ones to stick to one lane and continue with it each era. The ‘Like a G6‘ hitmakers have always branched out to explore new sounds and collaborate with artists from all over the world.
Today, they are sharing a brand new single ‘Bamboo’ with assistance from Chinese pop sensation Jason Zhang and soulful Asian-American songstress Kina Grannis. It’s the first taste off their upcoming album and is a result of their new multi-million dollar deal with China’s leading internet giant, NetEase. This chilled out Rap/R&B song is further proof that as long as the music is great, you don’t have a problem vibing to it. Listen to the excellent release below or on your preferred platform here.
Kev Nish of Far East Movement exclaims, “This year has been a huge shift forward for Asian entertainers and we are incredibly proud of how far our community has come in pop culture. Before Crazy Rich Asians, there hadn’t been a major film with an all Asian cast in 25 years. Then after that, Awkwafina makes history as the second Asian-American to host Saturday Night Live. Reflecting on our path, we have always tried to challenge ourselves to represent our culture through music in new ways. With this cross culture and cross continental partnership with NetEase, we are excited to fuse the fast growing music scene in China with what we are doing in the Asian American scene through our company Transparent Arts.”
