Editors’ Notes

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. 

Customer Reviews

+FE is back again!

I love the Foreign Exchange!! Phonte and Nikolay killing it again. They've been making great music for years and aren't known or appreciated in the way they should be. Which goes to tell you what a joke the music industry really is. Another great album. I'll have this one on repeat for a while.

Grown Folk Music…..Auto-Tunes need not apply.

Great maturity as compared to their earlier pieces. This has plenty of great tracks. It's another hit from start to finish. Great job and worth the wait, FE!

+FE Never Disappoints

As they have said many times...."never the same band twice!" Get over it Connected only fans!! That was 2004 this is 2013. How can you not love the uniqueness of what Phonte & Nicolay bring to the music landscape! LIFC is simply beautiful. Live strings too?!! It's definitely my soundtrack for Fall and beyond. Thanks for the sounds, it's greatly appreciated!

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...
