It’s been a while since Prozack Turner and Marc Stretch joined forces as the Foreign Legion. Now, the Oakland, CA duo is back with a new album Night Moves, due out April 12 on HungerStrike/Quality Control Digital.
Boasting the Grandpa J-produced single “The Ultimate” (see below), Night Moves is the fifteen year veterans’ triumphant return as a group after four years on hiatus.
“When you are in trouble you call the police,” they said in a press release. “When the police are in trouble, they call SWAT. When the world’s music playlist is in trouble, call Foreign Legion. The Ultimate’ is a shining example of feel good, rhyme great music. Come take a flight with Hip-Hop’s caped crusaders, over a mellow Grandpa J production. Bad music is definitely in trouble.”
The Foreign Legion isn’t the only Hip Hop act with an album dropping this spring. Rapper DELS is preparing the May 24 release of his debut LP GOB on Big Dada Recordings.
Boasting singles like “Trumpalump” and “Shapeshift,” the British-born DELS has been making waves with his unique brand of Hip Hop and electro, and his debut is looking to keep up that standard. He’s enlisted the likes of Kwes, Micachu and Joe Goddard of electro group the Hot Chip to hold down the production
“DELS has something in common with Kool Keith, he has great imagination and a willingness to talk about subjects other than money and his own prowess,” said Goddard.
