Producer singer songwriter XMPLA, continues to reach new heights with his track ‘Excited’, the first release ahead of his debut EP due later this year. Hailing from Sydney, the local artist creates genre-defying music using an eclectic and erratic array of sounds and vocals.
For the release, XMPLA has teamed up with three rappers from Ireland Sean X, Sage May and Hudis, the latter is also part of Irish RnB group Supersilly, who previously featured on Odd Mob’s ‘No Pressure’. The feature artists take the lead with their vocals which seamlessly blend into the dynamic future bass production and XMPLA adding his own vocals for the final verse.
XMPLA talks about the idea behind track, “Living everyday like its your first, Excited is about living your best life, going with the flow and reaching for a higher perspective. This is a party anthem that hopefully inspires you to live yours. When this song came together I was feeling what the title suggests! Everyone featured on this record goes by the same, especially in the process of writing music.”
XMPLA has quickly became a favourite in the local music scene, producing his own records as well as making outstanding remixes for artists such as Odd Mob, Animal Feelings and most notably, Marshmello. His 2018 single ‘Sun Goes Down’ garnered commendatory reviews from prominent presenters and local artists on triple j Unearthed which led him to becoming a ‘Feature Artist’ on the station. Most recently, XMPLA has debuted his live show when he supported both Dutch the Rapper and Hippie Sabotage. With a headline tour to be announced later this year, keep an eye on his socials for further info.
