iTunes Review

Comprising Dutch producer Nicolay and North Carolina rapper/singer Phonte (formerly of Little Brother), The Foreign Exchange earned a ton of hype for its 2004 debut, Connected, which was recorded entirely by sending tracks back and forth online (the two met via the message boards at OkayPlayer.com). The Foreign Exchange's sound appealed to a diverse group of listeners and won the duo a place in many year-end best-of lists. The Foreign Exchange returned with Leave It All Behind in 2008, scoring a GRAMMY nomination for the track "Daykeeper"; it also released Authenticity and Dear Friends: An Evening with the Foreign Exchange in 2010 and 2011, respectively. On Love in Flying Colors, the duo continues its mastery of grown-folks' music, with songs about true love, emotional stability, and the (real) good things in life. Musically, things are a little different than what we're used to (especially on the proto-house jam "The Moment"), and we get lots of guest singers in the mix. But it's still Phonte and Nicolay running the show, and it still sounds great. "Call It Home," "Right After Midnight," and "Better" are highlights.

Amazing

Sounds are old school, sounds beautiful

Raising The Bar

These cats transcend hip-hop & soul. They have such a refreshing sound each & every album. Simply, they keep the baseline sound/feel & remarkably raise the bar for other artists to chase after. Do yourself a favor and pay attention to how Nicolay bring in and fades out a beat. He has really pioneered the craft associated with peeling back the layers of FE's sound. It's truly an experience. Seeing these cats live is nothing short of a masterpiece. They switch things around, incorporate live instrumentation and always come out of left field with a new song or remake. As successful as this group is, they remain approachable, appreciative and humble. That's rare these days. Buy this album and check out their album history.

Representative of how the Internet can aid in creating music, the Foreign Exchange started when Little Brother rapper Phonte heard a beat on Okayplayer.com by Dutch producer Nicolay and asked if he could lay some vocals over it. Nicolay agreed, and the song "Light It Up" appeared shortly thereafter as the B-side to Little Brother's 2002 single "Whatever You Say." Relying mainly on instant messaging and email, the duo continued to work together, with Nicolay sending beats to Phonte, who would add...
