I Am Legion (Noisia X Foreign Beggars) - "Jelly Fish" - Song of the Day [03/01/2013]

Today's Song of the Day takes us forward, into the sound of future hip-hop. Noisia and Foreign Beggars have been rising in electronica and hip-hop, respectively, for quite a while now. It was only recently that they decided to join forces and produce an album together. Jelly Fish, one of the best produced songs on their eponymous debut LP, starts off with a walking-pace slow vibe hip-hop beat. However, this is unlike any hip-hop beat out there. Complete with dubstep wobbles, future sounding percussion, and pitch-bending synths this beat is very alien in nature. When Foreign Beggars start spitting, Jelly Fish is effortlessly transformed into a song with depth and meaning. We are propelled into the everyday life of Foreign Beggars, whose flow is synchronized perfectly with the walking-pace rhythm; their very down-to-earth verses contrast flawlessly with Noisia's extraterrestrial production.
With the release of their LP, I Am Legion is defining the future of electronica and hip-hop. They are currently on tour and will be stopping at Electric Forest Festival in Rothbury, Michigan to showcase their talent.
