Far East Movement is most known for its songs "Girls on the Dance Floor" and "Like A G6." The group has bridged the gap between underground party records and mainstream hip-hop and pop. They blend elements of hip-hop, pop, electro and dance to create an original sound and lifestyle they call "Free Wired."

Mike Posner

The group translates this Free Wired' way of life by constantly staying interactive and living the lifestyle it promotes. Whether it's their weekly music show on www.cherrytreeradio.com, blogging everyday on www.fareastmovement.com or uploading a series of FM Satellite webisodes they shoot on the road with their spy cams,' they always stay free to " geek out' 25 hours a day, eight days a week."

Posner, an American singer, songwriter and producer, released his debut album "31 Minutes to Takeoff" in August 2010. The album includes the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 single, "Cooler Than Me"; Posner's second single, "Please Don't Go"; and his third single, "Bow Chicka Wow Wow."
