Product Details
Representative of how the Internet can aid in creating music, The Foreign Exchange started when Little Brother rapper Phonte heard a beat on / by Dutch producer Nicolay and asked if he could lay some vocals over it. Nicolay agreed, and the song "Light It Up" appeared shortly after as the B-side to "Whatever You Say" off Little Brother's 2003 album, The Listening. Relying mainly on Instant Messenger and email, the duo continued to work together, with Nicolay sending beats to Phonte, who would add vocals and send them back until they had enough tracks together to form an album. Not once during the entire process of making their debut, Connected, which came out in 2004, did the members of the Foreign Exchange speak over the phone or in person.

Seven years after its release (and 2+ years out of print), The Foreign Exchange Music are happy to announce the re-pressing of the debut album "Connected." Featuring guest turns from Rapper Big Pooh, Von Pea (of Tanya Morgan), and longtime +FE collaborators Darien Brockington and YahZarah, "Connnected" was originally released on BBE in 2004. The album has been officially out of print since 2009 and original pressings currently sell for upwards of $50 on Amazon and eBay. The new +FE Music reissue contains the original "Connected" album, as well as all the accompanying remixes and instrumentals packaged in a specially priced double-disc digipak complete with all the original artwork.
