    Above & Beyond to release a documentary with Abramorama in early 2018


    Guest

    The 2017 year is not closing quietly for Above & Beyond, with the electronic group’s recent announcement that its sixth LP, Common Ground, is due in late January and an accompanying US tour that is set to span more than 25 total stops.

    In the midst of Above & Beyond’s nonstop momentum arrives Above & Beyond Acoustic—Giving Up The Day Job, a concert documentary that will focus on the award winning trio’s foray into an acoustic aesthetic in 2016. “Above & Beyond Acoustic” saw the electronic group embark on an 11-city acoustic tour for the release of Acoustic II, Above & Beyond’s response to their 2014 breakthrough acoustic album, Acoustic. The tour directed the electronic trio to a number of prestigious sold out venues ranging from the Hollywood Bowl to the Sydney Opera House, the group’s deviation from electronic beats necessitating a traveling party comprised of 17 musicians, and 34 additional Los Angeles-based classical players.

    Produced in conjunction with Abramorama, the concert documentary will offer Above & Beyond fans an intimate look at the complexities and unseen moments culminating in the group’s prior acoustic initiative. A respected distributor of music-driven documentaries, Abramorama has worked with a variety of artists, producing documentaries for The Beatles, Green Day, and Neil Young, among others.

    Above & Beyond Acoustic—Giving Up The Day Job will theatrically debut alongside Above & Beyond’s US tour at the beginning of 2018 as part of Abramorama’s theatrical campaign for the documentary. The full length film is expected to be released around the world in the months that follow the production’s theatrical campaign. “The acoustic project was a huge undertaking for us but the end result was massively rewarding,” Above & Beyond state of their departure from their electronic niche, “We look forward to collaborating with Abramorama on the release of the film and sharing our acoustic experience with fans around the world.”

      FOREIGN BEGGARS RELEASE 3rd SINGLE OFF FORTHCOMING ALBUM: ‘2 2 KARMA’ (OUT FEB 15)
       
      TITLE: WAVED
      ARTIST: FOREIGN BEGGARS FEAT FLUX PAVILION, BLACK JOSH & OG MACO
      3RD SINGLE OFF FORTHCOMING ALBUM ‘2 2 KARMA’ (OUT FEB 15, 2018)
      LABEL: PAR EXCELLENCE  
      OUT NOW!
       
      In Brief:
      Foreign Beggars share their new single ‘WAVED’ featuring Black Josh and Atlanta rapper OG Maco.  The Flux Pavilion production injects a fiery frenetic energy into the track propping up lightening quick bars from Black Josh and MCs Orifice Vulgatron and Metropolis.  Entering the fold in his trademark screamo-rap style, OG Maco delivers ‘WAVED’s addictive hook, providing an exciting snapshot of Foreign Beggars’ forthcoming album 2 2 Karma.
      ‘WAVED’ ft. Flux Pavilion, Black Josh & OG Maco will appear on their forthcoming album 2 2 Karma. Slated for release in February 2018, the highly anticipated album will feature artists and MCs including: Kate Tempest, Izzie Gibbs, Dizmack, Marcello Spooks and Black Josh as well as production features from some of bass music’s most sought-after producers - Alix Perez, Ivy Lab and Feed Me.
      Throughout their career, Foreign Beggars have built a steadfast reputation as one of the UK’s most versatile, creative and prolific acts through a continuing desire to push the envelope – a desire that is as urgent now as it has ever been and exemplified by ‘2 2 Karma.’ By the very nature of the group and the array of featured artists, ‘2 2 Karma’ promises to be a sonically unique and skillful blend of the two worlds (urban/hip hop and underground bass/electronic) in which they have dominated throughout their career.  As a hip hop group, they have never sounded recycled or ‘American’ but represent everything that is inimitable about UK underground music.
       
      FOREIGN BEGGARS FIRST 2 SINGLES RELEASED OFF FORTHCOMING ALBUM ‘TOAST’ & ‘BOSH’:

      Since their formation in 2002, multi-genre UK trio Foreign Beggars’ unique trajectory has seen them evolve from underground hip hop heroes, to a trailblazing electronic crossover act.  Without ever forsaking an ounce of their inimitable energy, Foreign Beggars are equally pumped whether in the studio recording or jumping around on stage at one of their live shows.
      The crew have released five studio albums to date: Asylum Speakers, Stray Point Agenda, United Colours Of Beggattron, The Uprising and I AM LEGION with Dutch production wizards Noisia.  It is with great pride that they announce the completion and upcoming release of their finest work to date - their sixth full length album: 2 2 KARMA.
       
      The first single ‘Toast’ from 2 2 KARMA will be released in February 2018. ‘Toast’ is produced by their long time musical partner Alix Perez and features the highly acclaimed Izzie Gibbs and Dizmack.  ‘Toast’ is packed with pace and precision, showcasing their place as the finest rappers from the UK.
      Always keen collaborators, the Beggars have worked with a plethora of artists worldwide from a wide musical spectrum.  2 2 KARMA sees collaborations with the likes of: Kate Tempest, OG Maco, Izzie Gibbs, Dizmack, Killa P & Irah, Shogun, Black Josh, Marcello Spooks, Zu and Andre Laville.  The album features productions from: Flux Pavilion, Spor/Feed Me, Alix Perez, Ivy Lab and Bangzy.  Collaborative highlights from their past include: Noisia, Dirtyphonics, Knife Party, Skrillex, Birdy Nam Nam, D’onaeo, Skinnyman, Jack Beats, Alix Perez, Tommy Lee, Eprom and Flux Pavilion.
      The critically acclaimed group have built this steadfast reputation as one of the UK’s most versatile, creative and prolific acts through a continuing desire to push the envelope, in a manner that is as urgent now as it has ever been.  With a top ten hit, over 80 million YouTube plays and a string of international headline dates ahead of them, things are going from strength to strength for the Beggars.
