The Foreign Exchange – Tales From The Land Of Milk And Honey

It’s hard to believe it’s been over ten years since The Foreign Exchange released their debut album Connected – an album that was loved by so many simply because it was just so fresh. Nicolay’s beats were like no other producer’s and Phonte was one of the best MC’s around.

If you’ve followed the group over the years, you’d know that their sound has changed quite a bit since their first album and it has continued to change with their latest release Tales from the Land of Milk and Honey. This may be partly due to the fact that the make up of the group has also changed with the addition of Zo!, Carmen Rodgers and Tamisha Waden. The change is nothing too dramatic though, the Foreign Exchange electro-soul sound is still there with a little funk thrown in to give the album a fun vibe throughout.

For me, the album is nothing mind blowing but perhaps that has something to do with the curse that comes with releasing good music – expectations get a little high. I’m sure fans will enjoy the release. It’s available now from the FE store or on iTunes if you prefer.

The Foreign Exchange – Milk And Honey

Zo! – ManMade

I first heard Zo! way back when he released Passion and Definition – a very chilled out instrumental album. Fast forward about eight years to now and the release of his new album ManMade and Zo!’s growth as an artist over the years becomes very apparent. This is his most accomplished release yet – a polished modern soul album boosted by vocal contributions from the likes of Phonte, Carlitta Durand, Sy Smith, Eric Roberson, Jeanne Jolly, Anthony David and Choklate. Get the album now through The Foreign Exchange Music.

The Foreign Exchange – Maybe She’ll Dream Of Me

First single from The Foreign Exchange new album titled Authenticity coming out via +FE Music on October 12th. The track is titled Maybe She’ll Dream Of Me and is of course, produced by Nicolay, with ZO! on the keys. Definitely a Leave It All Behind flavor rather than Connected, but happy to hear Phonte spit a verse as well as sing.
