This long awaited collaborative entity achieved sentience with 2009’s sleeper rap smash ‘Contact’ and its otherworldly cousins ‘Shellshock’ and ‘Soul Purge’, all releases on the two groups’ respective albums of that same period.
The result of five years of inter-dispersed recording sessions, their self titled debut establishes the group’s own manifesto of electronic rap music across a brilliant spectrum of tempos and forward leaning styles. ‘I Am Legion’ nods to rap’s erstwhile forays into electronica, absorbing elements of its present as it lays out a reassuringly disturbed vision of what is to come.
Released on Noisia’s Division Recordings, FB’s own new label Par Excellence, and OWSLA in the United States, this album breaks ground as an example of inventive independent music at its best. A full collaboration from its execution in the studio to its forthcoming release, ‘I Am Legion’s two lead singles will manifest with a short film written and co-directed by the group and Thijs Gloger due for release this summer.
Noisia & Foreign Beggars are proud to present I Am Legion.
