Foreign Beggars – stray point agenda

Posted on: May 11, 2008

Averaging well over 100 shows per year, ‘Foreign Beggars’ are one of the most prolific and versatile Hip Hop outfits to emerge from the UK. Consisting of MC’s Metropolis and Orifice Vulgatron, Producer Dag Nabbit, Human Beat boxer Shlomo and DJ Nonames.

With roots ranging from jazz and classical training, to years of writing recording and performing hip hop, death/power-metal and drum & bass the group’s varied experiences combine to create one of the most explosive live rap showcases on the planet.

The Second Installation from the Beggar Camp, ‘Stray Point Agenda’ has a more introspective tone than their debut ‘Asylum Speakers’. A darker, edgier beast than its predecessor, with featured production by Stones Throw protégé, Oh No and Ninja Tunes DJ Vadim, the release re-establishes the Foreign Beggars benchmark, but with a lyrical maturity that puts the album in a more progressive context. With rappers Orifice and Metropolis dealing with a variety of subversive topics from conscious socio-political realism to sci-fi horror core, the listener is confronted with their typically schizophrenic approach to life, love, spirituality and death. With featured guest spots from Dr. Syntax, Skrein, Dubbledge, Graziella, Wildchild and Dudley Perkins, the album spans the spectrum of rhyming styles from straight punchline to complex multi-syllabic flow patterns, doing justice to Dag Nabbits trademark versatility of dark electro synthesized basses, intricate sample work and filthy drums on futuristic soundscapes…disgusting!
