The Foreign Exchange's Tiny Desk Concert at NPR

by +FE on July 4, 2014 at 4:07 PM · Comments
The Foreign Exchange's Tiny Desk Concert at NPR
"While on a world tour to support their fourth album, Love in Flying Colors, The Foreign Exchange stopped by the Tiny Desk to rev up a Friday afternoon. I've followed Phonte Coleman and Nicolay in their 10 years as a band -- and it's evident their writing and production are honest and downright pungent at times. But when it's time to perform, it's all about fun.

Backed by keyboardist Zo! and percussionist Boogie, Phonte, never short for words, lays down some quick ground rules. He then proceeds to interpret lyrics to meld three stripped-down highlights from their latest LP, including one of our top sleepers from last year.

Enjoy this Tiny Desk Concert that also serves as a church sermon and stand-up act"

(by Bobby Carter for NPR)

R&B Duo the Foreign Exchange Aims for the Soul (via Vegas Seven)

by +FE on July 11, 2014 at 2:10 PM · Comments
So a Dutch producer and a North Carolina rapper meet in an online forum ...

The punch line? They go on to make progressive, polished and envelope-pushing soul and R&B. A decade, four albums and a Grammy nod later, the Foreign Exchange has gone from a hip-hop side project to a full-fledged band and record label. And their music has taken them all over the globe--everywhere except Las Vegas. On the road again in support of their highly praised Love in Flying Colors, the group is ready to spread their gospel to Sin City with producer Nicolay spinning July 13 at Insert Coin(s), followed by a Foreign Exchange show at the venue July 14.

The Foreign Exchange rates high to a packed house at Plush

by +FE on July 2, 2014 at 10:09 AM · Comments
With over an hour until show time, the floor space in front of the Plush stage was already at a premium, contested by an ever thickening group of the most dedicated fans.

Nappy DJ Needles and Black Spade further wound the crowd up with a danceable mix of soul and hip-hop, highlighted by selections from Lauryn Hill that encouraged half the crowd to sing along. The already sweat drenched masses compacted further as Corey Black treated the crowd to a couple of poems inspired by the headliners' albums "Love In Flying Colors" and "Connected," and at long last introduced the Foreign Exchange.

The Foreign Exchange at Fitzgerald's, 06/27/2014

by +FE on July 1, 2014 at 12:06 PM · Comments
Fitzgerald's isn't known for outright soul revivals on a Friday night. Or any night, for that matter. The last one my father could remember when I let it be known I was heading there for some groovy R&B was a Hugh Masakela concert he attended solo back in the mid-'90s.

Friday night, Fitzgerald's felt cool, in all senses of the word. The atmosphere was rich enough for twenty- and thirtysomethings to have some equal footing in terms of loving and appreciating music. Nobody looked as if they had a stress to worry about or a care to harp on. That's probably because Phonte, front man of The Foreign Exchange, told us all to leave that shit at the door.
