Dutch electro trio Noisia and British hip-hop/dubstep group Foreign Beggars have joined forces as I Am Legion, and the result is ferocious. The second single from their collaboration, “Choosing for You,” boasts tongue-twisting rap lyrics and a bouncy, dark electronic beat. The accompanying video furthers the futuristic elements of the song with video game-inspired warehouse sequences, baggy pants and robotic hip-hop moves.
“We kinda pieced together ideas from two beats Noisia had made to put this one together,” Foreign Beggars’ Metropolis tells Rolling Stone. “I think it’s the only track with a Noisia voice on it. . . The track is about letting the music possess you, as good music should when you hear it.”
The video completes a trilogy of I Am Legion’s collaborations with French director and Grammy nominee Tony Truand. I Am Legion will commence a European tour on September 26th at Electric in London.
