Happy Birthday Aimee!

by +FE on March 14, 2009 at 7:53 AM · Comments
There's no better occasion to put a well-deserved spotlight on Aimee Flint - director of operations and "woman-of-a-thousand-and-one-hustles" for Nicolay Music as well as The Foreign Exchange - than her birthday!

Photo by Sedrick Miles and originally uploaded by Nicolay Music.

Aimee Flint is without a doubt one of the hardest working women in music and, along with Phonte and Nicolay, one of the driving forces behind The Foreign Exchange's "Leave It All Behind" campaign and tour(s). She books the shows, drives the van when needed, provides snacks, hot tea and a vast array of cold medicin, sells the merch, arranges the interviews, gets the stage ready, takes pictures and video, makes sure we stick to our schedules, cuts the checks and does countless other things. We truly could not pull it all off without her.

A thousand-and-one thank yous and a very happy birthday, Aimee!

[If you'd like to wish Aimee a happy birthday yourself, you can hit her up on Twitter (@AimeeFlint) or Facebook].

The Washington Post reviews The Foreign Exchange at Black Cat, Washington DC

by +FE on March 12, 2009 at 10:57 AM · Comments
When an MC hits the stage wearing a bow-tie, it's a good sign that an interesting show is about to take place. For the Foreign Exchange's sold-out date at the Black Cat on Friday, singer/rapper Phonte broke out what he called his "finest haberdashery," but even though he was wearing a suit and tie, he assured the crowd that "this is a [expletive] party!"

In keeping with that promise, the Foreign Exchange -- a duo consisting of Phonte, from the North Carolina hip-hop outfit Little Brother, and Dutch producer Nicolay -- delivered an incredible night of dreamy R&B/hip-hop.<

4DaSoul reviews The Foreign Exchange at Highline Ballroom, New York

by +FE on March 11, 2009 at 9:42 AM · Comments
2009 looks to be a great start for Foreign Exchange. Individually Phonte and Nicolay already had a loyal fan base. But as a duo, the unlikely collaboration of these 2 brothers from another mother managed to capture lightning in a bottle twice. Last year their sophomore LP Leave it all behind received rave reviews from both fans and critics (including 4DaSoul), making it one of the best album releases of 2008. The band recently performed a sold out show in Washington DC and 4DaSoul had the privilege of returning to the Highline Ballroom NYC to cover their follow-up performance. Our previous coverage at the venue was for a Little Brother performance around the time their Get Back album was released.

The Foreign Exchange live experience is nothing like that of Little Brother's. While they share 1 obvious similarity and the same revolving door of guest collaborators, the 2 bands exist as completely separate entities.  A Little Brother show can be described as a high energy, throw your backpack in the air hip-hop celebration. Foreign Exchange shows on the other hand, aim toward the grown and sexy crowd. One could call Foreign Exchange the mature older brother who maintains some hip-hop sensibilities.
