They are back!

Continuing on their quest to change the face of UK hip hop in the last decade Foreign Beggars make a hugely anticipated return to the big stage for this exclusive London show!

2009’s ‘Contact’ (3,000,000+ views on YouTube), taken from their third album, saw them combine furious London-fueled flows with Noisia’s crunching electro backbone – the start of what has become Foreign Beggars’ new obsession; fusing hip hop with dance music.

Foreign Beggars’ more recent output has been a genre-defying blend of their former machinations and speaker-busting, floor rumbling dance music produced by the hottest artists around, delivering a succession of incredible collaborations. While each release seems to bring greater success and critical acclaim; the incredible ‘Beggatron Remixed’ album which featured the likes of Plastician, Bar9, Noisia and more. The Beatport chart topping ‘Scatta’ with Skrillex, the anthem that is ‘Lines In Wax’ with Flux Pavilion and the recent team up with Vato Gonzalez ‘Badman Riddim’ out on Ministry Of Sound is finally seeing the group crossover into the mainstream, receiving heavyweight radio support.

Their legendary live show has left crowds fevered and frenzied as the group seamlessly blend grime, dubstep, drum and bass and rap music together with the a ferocity more akin to heavy metal than a hip hop show.

This year sees the Beggars releasing ‘The Harder They Fall’ EP, the first in a three part series produced by some of the most in-demand artists on the planet. Featuring six Foreign Beggars collaborations with Alix Perez, Mensah, Lazer Sword, Medison, Ruckspin, Black Sun Empire and Skrillex, their debut Never Say Die EP hits the 140bpm tempo straight between the eyes, offering a range of styles and flavours that could loosely be described as dubstep, without the superfluous connotations that the mere name of the genre now evokes.
