Nicolay

Born and raised in the Netherlands, classically trained multi-instrumentalist and producer Nicolay played in a number of hip-hop and R&B bands around his homeland, but it wasn't until 2000 that he decided to start producing his own beats. In 2002 Little Brother MC Phonte Coleman stumbled across one of them on Okayplayer's message board and asked if he could put his rhymes over it, and soon a friendship and a musical relationship were born. This transatlantic collaboration, which they called the Foreign Exchange, led to an album, Connected, in 2004, after which Nicolay continued producing tracks for Little Brother and Cesar Comanche, releasing City Lights, Vol. 1.5 first only online and then through BBE Records in 2005. The Dutch Masters, Vol. 1, which featured Nicolay DJing, came out that same year, followed by Here in 2006. In 2008 the producer teamed up with Houston rapper Kay (whom he had also met through message boards and had put on a track on Here) and issued the album Time:Line. The second Foreign Exchange album, Leave It All Behind, came later in the year. One of its highlights, "Daykeeper," was nominated for a Grammy, but not before the 2009 release of Nicolay's own City Lights, Vol. 2: Shibuya. ~ Marisa Brown, Rovi

Just a smooth funky beat to listen to.

the illest!!
So ill
so chill
This dude can speak with music, literally! The track "Hey" puts you in a good mood, the song tells me "good morning & have a great day"
The real deal no doubt.
nice bio on Little brother..... . . too bad this isn't a little brother track its by Nicolay. Nicolay is a European producer, I believe out of the Netherlands or perhaps France. Nicolay is a part of a R&B/ Hip hop group with Phonte Coleman (little Brother) called The Foreign Exchange.
chill man, good.

Once upon a time, in the early 1990's, THIS was the kind of hip hop that was on the radio, and you heard it everywhere! That was a long time ago. sigh.

Phenomenal Bio...

True hip-hop isn t dead, which is what I'm discovering as I listen to Pandora. Sometimes we cant rely on the radio stations to give us what we truly need to hear.
I just found out about this guy from listening to pandora....m a n i've been deprived all these years of this man's music. But after listening to some of his tracks on pandora, he has such a familar style. I'm sure many producers have been influenced by him....
Never heard this guy before but I'm lovin it.
smooth grooves slick!
smoon609
soooo chill
You and BiG ZO! two of my fav producers. Get'em.
was heavy on gangsta rap until I discovered this dude. Needless to say, I never went back. This is REAL, true hip hop...and what it's meant to be.
