Exile is far and away one of the most Zzzz'd on producers out west and despite the fact that he's been holding down the L.A. underground scene nicely since the early 2K's with his head nodding brand of jittery, intricately chopped beats, heads still frequently leave his name out too often when they speak on the illest boardsmen out on the left coast or anywhere for that matter.
In case you sleep under boulders, Exile released an instrumental album last year titled "Radio" that was completely constructed with sounds that Exile sampled off the radio to reflect that yes, even though ppl like me bash it constantly, you can make something great out of sounds you find on the ole' radio dial.
For "Radio Bonus" a bunch of Heady Hip-hop names the likes of Marco Polo, DJ Rhettmatic, Torae, Ruste Juxx, Teebs, aDAD, Von Pea, Donwill and Dibia$e all remix and rhyme the album.
The reason we're getting this nice lil' freebie? Read on....
Exile’s Radio (Bonus Album) [is being released] in celebration of his upcoming August 31st "AM/FM" release via Plug Research. "AM/FM" will feature various producers remixing the original Radio tracks, while Blu, Fashawn, Shafiq Husayn, Samiyam, Free the Robots, DJ Day, Clutchy Hopkins, Evidence, Alchemist, Krondon, Muhsinah, Aloe Blacc, Grouch and Eligh go over the originals. The amount of submissions were so high, not everything could fit on the official "AM/FM" album, hence the free download.
Uhhh yeah, "AM/FM" sounds like it's gonna be a pure beast of a project...look at that lineup...wow...
