Foreign Exchange – Connected (Reissue)

null

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 after as the B-side to “Whatever You Say” off Little Brother’s 2003 album, The Listening. Relying mainly on Instant Messenger and email, the duo continued to work together, with Nicolay sending beats to Phonte, who would add vocals and send them back until they had enough tracks together to form an album. Not once during the entire process of making their debut, Connected, which came out in 2004, did the members of the Foreign Exchange speak over the phone or in person. The new +FE Music reissue contains the original “Connected” album, as well as all the accompanying remixes and instrumentals packaged in a specially priced double-disc digipak complete with all the original artwork.
