Y’all ain’t never seen a crew quite like us. United in purpose, yet diverse in style.
More a family of artists than a band, The Movement Fam was brought together less by a similarity of talents than by a shared understanding of what it means to make good music. An understanding that music is more than mechanical adherence to the accepted rules of a particular genre, that expression of the soul is as much about the way words are spoken or sung than what those words are, and that representing you will always mean more than representing where you’re from.
Already a tightly-knit bunch for years, The Movement Fam combined artists Cee & Bekah, Notion and Tommy Gunnz for the first time under a single banner in 2008. Through a collective desire to have their music heard in all corners of the globe (not just their hometown of Melbourne, Australia), the Fam quickly made strong links in the United States, none stronger than ATL’s DJ Grain (DJ/blogger/weekly columnist on 90.3FM’s The Edutainment Hip Hop Show in Knoxville, TN/all-rounder), who officially joined The Movement Fam in September 2008.

Not only encompassing artists, The Movement Fam also represents some extremely talented and versatile producers from all corners of the globe:
Infinite Archetype – Perth representer via Scotland, Iyae’s unique blend of Soul and Hip Hop is the epitome of The Movement Fam’s sound, even landing a placement (the title track, no less) on Rek’s latest mixtape with Statik Selektak, ‘In Between The Lines’.
Diaz & Sima – Straight out of Hungary, this production duo has laced beats for MCs all around the world, with Sima having produced two singles that are in heavy rotation on radio and video shows in their homeland currently. Their tough blend of eerie samples, hard drums and haunting synths will have your neck snapping in no time.
Notion – The Movement Fam’s in-house engineer and talented MC, Nosh has been working on his beat game for years and the time is nigh for him to finally get some shine. After sculpting his own unique style, the people are ready.
Tokyo Cigar – Balimore, MD resident via Nigeria, Tokyo Cigar is one of the most prolific producers going right now and the newest recruit of The Fam. He’s a solo MC and half of The Plexiglass Fountain, but his production is his first love; his left field style will appeal to the backpacker contingent but he has the potential to do some big things.
For all production enquiries, please contact Cee.
The Movement Fam blog was originally created as a showcase for all things TMF, however over the last two years it has evolved into much more than that. It is a reflection of the various personalities of both the crew and the extended Fam who contribute. We aim to give you dope music of all genres, funny ass videos, free downloads, political commentary and just straight up entertaining shit.
