The segment that I attended though was a little bit different than the normal version of ARTIST #TALK. This episode not only featured musical group The Far East Movement, but was part of a bigger HP initiative to mark the release of Windows 8 and to showcase some of their new products that include Beats by Dre audio technology. Throughout the iconic Terminal 5 complex was interactive games, an unforgettable show by two aerial acrobats, as well as a high-energy private show by the Far East Movement that included fan favourites, new songs and the very first live performance of “Little Bird” from their new album “Dirty Bass”.
During the ARTIST#TALK portion of the night, Far East Movement talked extensively about their humble beginnings as a band, growing up in downtown Los Angeles, interning with universal music, as well as their musical and fashion inspirations, quite notably, The Beastie Boys.
Overall it was a great experience and I would like to thank HP and Microsoft for inviting me to the event, Far East Movement for putting on an amazing show, and Toronto is Fashion for giving me the opportunity to attend!
