The Foreign Exchange never disappoints! The track comes from producer Zo!’s ManMade EP which I’ve honestly and sadly been sleeping on. The visuals just dropped today and the video to Zo!’s, Eric Roberson & Phonte’s We Are On The Move is funky, musical and amusing, sweet and simple. Directed by Kenneth Price, responsible for many recent Hip Hop videos by the likes of Rhapsody, 9th Wonder and more.
After the first time playing it, initially in the background but noticing how I couldn’t keep sitting still and started to tap my feet to the beat and singing with unfamiliar lyrics, I went back and watched the clip. I couldn’t help but crack up and keep moving, it immediately reminded me of some dandy 80s vibe, and a very happy one.
Apparently it is indeed inspired and an indirect tribute to this 1987 The Whisperers release. Like the conclusion me and Tim boldly draw up; if you can’t dig this, you ain’t got no soul.
I am left a little dazzled that it took me ’till now to learn about Zo! so I’m gonna dig right into it.
