Very few refute there is a true balancing power of “two” and great duos have changed the course of musical history forever. The ying-yang, polar opposites, kindred spirits, the artists who are accomplished solo but are better together, the folks that click naturally and make dope music, the ones when you hear they’re dropping an album, you just buy it without thinking twice. The Foreign Exchange comprised of producer/artist Nicolay and rapper/singer Phonte (from the legendary group Little Brother) who met on internet message boards over a decade ago, easily fall into this category. Achieving the rare feat of obtaining mainstream recognition while maintaining underground respect and credibility, this twosome returns with their much anticipated fourth album, Love In Flying Colors dropping on September 24th.
Connecting with Nicolay and Phonte as they prepped for their release last week, peep our interview soundclips where we discuss their new album, the Grammy nod, weird fan comments, how they work together and if there are conflicts wearing the artist and label owner hat simultaneously.
