Grammy Smammy: DJ Conscience Honors The Foreign ExchangePublished by L. Michael Gipson on Monday, February 8, 2010 at 1:05 am.
One of Washington, DC’s most respected underground DJs and an unofficial one-man campaign for indie artists Yahzarah aka Purple St. James, Choklate, and Sy Smith, DJ Conscience has released his own award honor, creating one of the hottest and most exclusive The Foreign Exchange mixtapes ever. “The Foreign Exchange All Star Show” by DJ Conscience boasts cuts from the FE classic “Leave It All Behind” and the “Just Visiting Too” project by Zo!’, in addition to never before heard originals and covers by Zo!, Yahzarah, Darien Brockington, and Foreign Exchange. For those unfamiliar with The Foreign Exchange camp this is a perfect introduction and for longtime fans, Conscience has created the work time groove you need to make it through your day, with a couple of surprising treats in store. Fresh off their Grammy-nomination (India-Arie won the Urban/Alternative category instead), this year is looking to be a big year for the FE camp with new albums by Zo!, Yahzarah, and Little Brother planned and recent releases by Nicolay, Carlitta Durand, and Darien Brockington making their way across the net. Leave it to conscience to launch their FE year off right! For the free download of DJ Conscience’s R.E.D. Soul Radio’s “The Foreign Exchange All Star Show” click here.
