The Foreign Exchange-So What If It Is

foreegi
So What If It Is” is The Foreign Exchange’s new single from their “+FE Music: The Reworks” remix compilation. Spanning 2 discs, the set features remixes from Nicolay, Zo! 4hero, ?uestlove & James Poyser, and serves as a primer for The Foreign Exchange’s long-awaited 4th LP, Love In Flying Colors.

One of my go-to acts when I’m in a new music dry period, and they solve both problems with some brand new work. The production’s distinctly more electro-infused than their previous works, combining uptempo percussion with bright synths and lively electronic samples, whilst Phonte’s vocals are certainly uplifting throughout. His lyricism still retains a touch of bittersweetness for that grounded quality, and this is a nice change of pace from their usual works that comes off very well. Maintaining a sense of chillout within the otherwise busy backdrop, Nicolay’s served up a production that hovers a line that’s so difficult to master, and the overall combination is a likeable effort that sets their forthcoming projects up nicely.
