The Nigerian raised, Chicago born, LA-based Christian Rich recently contributed to #1 Billboard albums for Drake, J Cole, Earl Sweatshirt and Childish Gambino, as well as recently producing tracks for Vince Staples’ upcoming album.
Inspired by their fascination with the future, time travel and the worlds outside our galaxy FW14 is a time stamp for the journey and the start point of exploration. The album’s concept is influenced by Phillip K Dick works "VALIS Trilogy", "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale" and the Christopher Nolan directed sci-fi motion picture, Interstellar. There are interludes that sound like a person traveling in space and time. That person is the main character of the album; the female depicted on the cover standing next to an Audi prepared for her expedition. She is also narrating in the interludes, a nod to the classic 'Midnight Marauders' LP. 'FW14' is the vessel she travels in.
Staying true to their roots the duo incorporate footwork and hip hop with unique percussion inspired by Nigerian fugi music and Brazilian bossa nova. Taiwo and Kehinde mix bossa style chords with high energy drums and string heavy productions create the sonic experience that is 'FW14'.
