Example has released his fourth studio album, The Evolution of Man: a rock-dance crossover, featuring a star studded lineup of producers. Example, ever-keen on his EDM-game, has recruited everyone from dubstep/drum ‘n’ bass legends Skream and Benga, to electro house technicians Laidback Luke and Tommy Trash, to big room maestros Alesso and Dirty South for production duties. Example’s rapturous flow is on point as usual, treading the line between soft, reflective musings and intensely evocative wordplay.
With The Evolution of Man, Example has successfully merged EDM, rap, and rock n’ roll. While nearly the entire spectrum of electronic music is represented on the album, each track maintains a distinctive rock feel. Though less strictly EDM, this is undoubtedly the most impressive lineup of EDM producers on a vocalist’s album to date. And as we’ve already seen with Dyro and Hardwell & Dannic’s revisions, Example has bestowed producers with an endless supply of remix material.
