Foreign Concept is one of the more exciting talents to emerge from the drum & bass scene in recent years. Even with a comparatively small amount of releases to his name so far, the young south Londoner has made an enormous dent in the scene since his first forays into production began back in 2009. His new EP, Tag Team is a four track release of new electronic music featuring with T-Man, Stray and Punchline. Here's what Less Than 3 had to say:
Tag Team is a four-track brew of taut beats and menacing lyrical flows, as evidenced by FC's collaboration with Stray called Bang It. Bang It starts on a relaxed note, with a harmonic pad phrase akin to '90s D&B classics like Soul Beat Runner or Terminator, but quickly transforms into a hard-stepping, bass workout. Halfway through the tune, the two producers unveil a throbbing bassline and a deluge of kinetic hi-hats, bringing Bang It to a sweat-inducing boil. With its staggered drum pattern and aggressive vibe, this tune is certain to keep the mercury rising for the rest of the hot season.
The EP is available now on Beatport.
