For those that don’t know, Foreign Exhange is Phonte from Little Brother + producer Nicolay.
The first album was created over the Atlantic, and was still a classic. Now that Nicolay has moved stateside it will be interesting to see what they can cook up from inside the same studio. Maybe they both need their own space and it’l be a flop?
And can Phonte actually sing? We’l see.
details on the project look set to filter through over the next few weeks, so keep your eyes open.

^…a rather interesting promo shot from Donae’O.
The summer (gone) sure does seem to belong to him. First there was ‘Devil in the Blue Dress‘. . then more recently ‘African Warrior‘, and now ‘I‘ – which is incredible. I remember hearing it for the first time on a deja set, Paddington tube station – one of those places where the buzz is infringing on your ‘phones. . listening to londons cheapest ‘chicago’ house and surrounded by extended families with samsonites, then the selector pulled it out. woahhhhhhh. 4, 5 rewinds later (..and believe me, the ipod touch crew will tell you about the shortcomings of the rewind facility..), destination reached and it was still going off. even as I write this, i’ve got no qualms about putting it back to back, and again.
While the debate rages on about what Funky House is, where it comes from, and where its going. . make sure you don’t lose sight of what, at the end of the day, is good music. I haven’t asked the grime converts yet what they think of this – but it’l be interesting to see if they think its too soft. Is it funky? or is just a particularly infectious slice of soulful? Beats me.
Throw it on though; Donaeo Myspace.
And tracks called.. ‘I‘, but play them all while your there. Let me know what you think, I think ive forgotten what receiving a comment feels like.
Ps. I am welcoming the debate. . dont get me wrong.
Listen to Hybrid.
These dubstep producers keep it to a minimum on their myspace’s dont they. . I guess it’s cool.
Thanks to Alex.

if wayne wasn’t on this, i wouldn’t bat an eyelid. thats what he adds. and thats why he’s slowly consuming the genre.
maybe he is the greatest?
