Exile-Dawn of the Nothing


One of the most slept-on producers in the hip-hop game, without a doubt. His Radio album from a few years ago was a great listen, his work with Blu has been equally enjoyable and here we’ve got something new from a forthcoming project.

This one is a little darker than some of his usual material, with an eerie sample making up the key melody, alongside some slow, ominous percussion work. It works as a pretty chilled out instrumental too, without any particular rises and falls, and hence is a very easy listen. Not his best work, but certainly not his worst and a very solid listen.
