A few weeks ago, I discovered a remix of Sun Glitters’ Outside by Exempt, an unsigned artist currently residing in Berlin. While preserving Sun Glitter’s musical touch, Exempt brings his own hypnotic vibe to this track, with a style reminiscent of Burial and experimental artists like Shlohmo.

Exempt describes his music as “the emotion or regeneration of a certain memory”. The eclectic producer cites Sun Glitters, James Blake, Holy Other, but also J Dilla as his main influences. His style varies from one track to the next, though his main focus in on the ambient/experimental genre.

At the moment, Exempt is working on a music video project with the talented Thomas Skrobek. We’re looking forward to watching the final product!
