Dutch chainsaw enthusiast, R3hab and Russian stunners Hard Rock Sofa join forces to remix Example’s melancholy original “Perfect Replacement.” Injecting the production with a mainline dose of electro adrenaline, R3hab and HRS’s first collaboration is fitted with layers upon layers of heavy grit and driving synthesis. Playing both sides of the dance music spectrum, the remix strikes a delicate balance between big room melodies and spine-tingling electro house.Posted by
Example releases ‘The Evolution of Man,’ featuring production by Dirty South, Feed Me, Alesso, Dada Life, Dillon Francis and more
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. Click past the break to hear our favorites from the album.
Back in September, Hardwell and Dannic teamed up to remix Example’s “Say Nothing,” and this week, it’s Dyro stepping up to the plate. Leaving his mark on “Close Enemies” in the same vain, Dyro builds around the track’s arena-filling vocal with dramatic synths and deep bass kicks. Using Example’s latest single, the blazing hot youngster proves his production skills useful not only for club tracks, but big room ones as well. Purchase Dyro’s remix of “Close Enemies” from iTunes today before the Monday rush.

Hardwell has linked up with rising young producer and progressive companion, Dannic, for a remix of Example’s lastest single “Say Nothing.” The collaborative effort, expected to be a harder hitting progressive effort, boasts more of a big room vibe than anything else. Appropriately, Hardwell and Dannic attach euphoric builds and melodic synths to the track’s already-uplifting vocal. Flirting with anthem status, the latest dutch twist on Example’s “Say Nothing” is sure to make its way into DJ sets this month so head to iTunes for your copy.

With all the exciting productions they have been behind recently we’re sure its going to be very well received.

“Daydreamer,” Flux Pavilion’s first single from his debut album is set to release on April 30th but his management is bringing us the song’s official video first. Although the video itself is average, the song is not and this is ultimately what matters. The dubstep track features catchy vocals from Example — whose voice you might recognize from Afrojack’s remix of “Kickstarts” — and we’ve already found ourselves singing along. Flux has churned out one of our all time favorite tracks, “Haunt You,” so we’re super excited to see what his first album brings.
