Nicolay & Kay

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 on the Foreign Exchange label. 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. The Foreign Exchange label expanded during the early 2010s with additional albums from FE and Phonte, as well as releases from collaborators YahZarah, Zo!, and Median. In 2015, Nicolay released another predominantly instrumental solo album, City Lights, Vol. 3: Soweto. Its material, enhanced with vocal contributions from Phonte, Carmen Rodgers, and Tamisha Waden, was inspired by South Africa dates on the Foreign Exchange's world tour the previous year. ~ Marisa Brown, Rovi

I actually heard Dutchmasters first then Connected and I was hooked. I think what shocked some people is Phonte (yes Phonte from previous Little Brother fame) does quite a bit of singing. It's a masterful merger of Nicolay's smooth jazzy but hip hop induced beats with Kay, Zo, Yahsinrah and Phonte's lyrics.

Nicolay...ho w u? I have been listening to your music and beats for quite some time. I consider myself a major fan. I mean,...you have a style thats "right up my alley." I am an intellectual lyricist who loves music with a passion. I would really love to collaborate something with you one day.

One of if not the most underrated Producer of this modern era of Hip Hop. This brother has so much Soul, his sample samples and beats are an incredible masterpieces of music.
