Orifice Vulgatron, Metropolis, Dag Nabbit and DJ Nonames, aka Foreign Beggars, are back with their new single Flying To Mars. Similarly to Skrillex, with whom they collaborated on their previous single, 2011 track Still Gettin’ It, the group’s roots began in metal bands, only for them to completely change their sound and take the world of urban grime, hip-hop and dubstep by storm.
Playing over 100 shows a year and never letting more than a few months go past without the release of new music on their own Dented Records label, the grime group have earned themselves a well-respected position within the dubstep scene.
Flying To Mars is their first single to be released this year, and if it’s any indication of new music heading our way, the next full length release from Foreign Beggars is going to be a good one.
With radio-friendly vocals mixed with the dirtiest of dubstep beats, Flying to Mars seems like a breakthrough track for the group and could allow them to gain mainstream popularity whilst holding on to their electronic roots. Rather than alienating a potential audience with such an urban sound, the group somehow make it accessible to everyone so regardless of whether you’re an old-school fan or new to the scene, this track is one not to be missed.
Their busy touring schedule continues with a number of festival dates this summer. Unfortunately, most of them are elsewhere in Europe but if you happen to be at Redfest in Surrey this summer, you’d be a fool not to check them out. The track says “you can find me by the speaker” and, as soon as this song is played at parties across the country, that’s where you’ll find us too.
