Although being new to the game, up and coming Sydney DJ, producer and vocalist XMPLA has caught the attention of the global music community. XMPLA creates a truly unique style, combining dynamic electronic production with elements of hip hop, whilst manipulating and layering various vocal treatments, all of which are his own. His compelling new single ‘Sun Goes Down’ maintains his unique production aesthetic, whilst exploring a more traditional songwriting structure.
“I wrote most of this song, late at night, in bed, with the mic on my ipod headphones and the laptop. It represents what goes on in my head when the sun goes down. After a long day, the fears and doubts creeps in, the sounds and songs become stuck on repeat.” – XMPLA
After winning the 301 Studios ‘Is It A Banger’ competition and receiving runner up in the YourShot DJ competition, XMPLA signed with Tinted Records for the release of ‘Better’. The track caught the attention of triple j Unearthed, as well as numerous triple j presenters and various dance radio across the country, for its groundbreaking and futuristic production stylings.
