Behind The Beat: Foreign Allegiance Pt. 1

blame it on JES7 June 27, 2015

After wrapping up the conclusion to Divided Soul’s Behind-The-Beat, highlighting their remix of Havoc’s “What I Rep (Remix)“, our homie Alkota over at Drum Broker returns with a series focusing on producer/DJs Foreign Allegiance (B. Corder & Bengie) hailing from Flint, Michigan.

In part 1, B. Corder & Bengie, whom both reside in L.A. these days, break down their respective styles that they both bring to the table – and how they make their sounds mesh into something that is cohesive and makes sense both on paper and through your speakers.

B. Corder breaks down how he gravitates more toward the soulful side of things while keeping thick hardcore drums, while Benjie says his sound is more akin to 808s and deeper sounds. As a duo, the two have recorded for the likes of Big K.R.I.T. as well as Jon Connor and Maffew Ragazino.
