Check out the playlist below or within Spotify (search for “DJcity Essentials“).
Released in 2015, “Push” became one of DJcity’s most downloaded tracks of October of that year. It has since received over one million combined streams.
The Fate of the Furious is the eighth installment in The Fast and the Furious franchise. It will hit theaters on April 14.

Far East Movement has joined forces with DJ/producer Marshmello for a new single called “Freal Luv.” The track, which features Tinashe and K-pop rapper Chanyeol, is set to appear on FM’s upcoming album Identity.
“Identity is a Far East Movement, in a sense, bridging artists from the east with artists from the west while fusing different genres we love,” the group told Billboard.

In 2013, Australian DJ/producer Kronic dropped a remix of Far East Movement and Riff Raff’s anthem, “The Illest.” Now, two years later, Kronic has joined forces with the Los Angeles group and New Zealand rapper Savage for a trap banger called “Push.”
Set to release via Ministry of Sound Australia, the 64 BPM single has all the necessary ingredients for a festival and club anthem: hard-hitting drums, blistering synths, and high-energy vocals.

In 2010, electro-rap group Far East Movement broke into the mainstream with their platinum-selling “Like a G6” — the first-ever Billboard Hot 100 #1 by Asian-American artists. Proving not to be a one-hit wonder, the group continued their success with a follow-up album titled, Dirty Bass, which spawned four top 10 pop singles.
Now, the Los Angeles-based quartet is re-discovering their hometown roots with K-Town Riot — a new EP featuring rappers YG and Schoolboy Q and EDM heavyweight Sidney Samson. Although much of FM’s success has stemmed from a pan-global sound, the quintet’s latest project is inspired by Los Angeles’ diverse culture and the infamous 1992 riots which shaped the Koreatown community and the city as a whole.
“We want this EP to shine a light and soundtrack on the city. You don’t have to be Korean to be down . . . We kept the hard bass we’re known for and partnered with homies from all over the world to make music that neither of us are known for.” — FM’s Kev Nish
FM has also released a mini-documentary about the riots. The four-and-a-half-minute video features first-hand accounts, including commentary from celebrity chef Roy Choi:
