Freshly formed production duo Foreign Roots consisting of producer / MC / DJ Goodgrip & producer BangBeats released their first official single ‘Alien’ featuring upcoming singer Damaris Dior. With the launch party being held in Bali, Indonesia where the music video was also shot (link below), it marked an official start of a new endeavor for the two childhood friends. In early 2017 they decided to conceptualize a long kept desire and agreed to work on an album as a production duo. Initially, featuring artists from The Netherlands & Indonesia and eventually work with artists from all around the world with all kinds of different backgrounds.

Nicky ‘Goodgrip’, having traveled around the world and shared the stage with the likes of renowned names such as Laidback Luke, Quintino and Irwan Kartosen to name a few, is feeling extra excited by launching this project:
“It’s like a dream come true, I’ve always wanted to combine the sounds of the East and the West. The Netherlands, in many ways, is a pioneer in the music industry and there are so many great musicians and musical talents in Indonesia. With my personal and professional background, I hope to create sounds which put Indonesia musically on the world map where it belongs.”

Abang ‘BangBeats’ elaborates:
“Goodgrip and I were born in Amsterdam and spent almost our entire childhood in The Netherlands, however, both of us are from Indonesian decent and visited our family in Indonesia every year. We feel at home in Indonesia, but of course also in The Netherlands… a feeling which I think many first generation immigrant kids like us share, wherever their parents came from.”

Their first single is out but there are many more marked as ‘work in progress’, some of which, aside from upcoming talents, feature well-known Dutch and Indonesian artist of different genres. Goodgrip: “Although we both have an ‘urban’, meaning, R&B / Hiphop background we don’t want to be pinned down to a certain genre, we aim to work with artists of all genres and create a unique sound.” BangBeats adds: “Although this is a global project, we intentionally started in our ancestral land – Indonesia.”
