Foreign Concept is without doubt one of the most exciting new talents to emerge from the drum & bass scene in recent years. Even with a relatively small amount of releases to his name so far, the 24 year old south Londoner has made an enormous dent in the scene since his first forays into production began back in 2009.
Having made the move to Brighton it wasn’t long before his sounds began to reverberate around the scene and the phone started to ring. Critical label boss Kasra instantly recognised his talent and championed his sound from the off. Others then followed; Friction, Hype, Marky, S.P.Y. and many more. 2011 was without the biggest year to date for Foreign Concept aka Matt Price who after releasing tracks on Samurai Music and Ingredients Records, secured his first major D&B label releases through Critical Music and Shogun Audio.
The critically acclaimed ‘Mob Justice’ released on Critical towards the end of the year sealed the deal as Kasra snapped him up exclusively for Critical.
Without doubt, one of the most anticipated singles of the year.- 10/10 Data Transmission
The EP hit the much coveted No.1 spot across the download charts from Drum & Bass Arena to Track It Down and secured Foreign Concept as a firm favourite in clubs across the globe. With an ever-increasing profile his international DJ schedule is now spiralling and with turntable skills dating back to 1999 you can be sure a Foreign Concept set is one not to miss.

Now as we turn the page and begin a new year with a whole host of Foreign Concept music already lined up we know 2012 is looking to be a pinnacle year for this talent and Critical as the label itself gets ready to celebrate 10 years of Critical Music. Keep it locked, the future’s too bright!
