Renegade Riddims: Exult
Our final Renegade Riddims mix for 2020 is from London based DJ and Producer and Rebel Music resident, Exult, formerly known as Convex.
Exult is a newcomer to the Drum & Bass scene from London. A Rebel Music resident, he dropped his debut EP ‘Escape Velocity’ on the label in April (under his alias Convex), which reached number 13 in the Beatport Drum & Bass release charts. Following this, he featured a track on Rebel Music’s ‘Rebel One’ compilation, raising money for NHS Charities Together at the start of lockdown, alongside the likes of Kolectiv, Creatures, Hadley and more.
Since then, he has seen releases on Fokuz Recordings and Sunny Moves Records, as well as putting out free downloads, such as a bootleg of Billie Eilish’s ‘When The Party’s Over’, which was widely popular. Recently, he won the Counterpoint Recordings competition to remix Molecular and Lavance’s track ‘Replicants’, which will see its release next year.
Exult‘s wide range of influences are reflected in his diverse sound, from melodic liquid to ‘space tech’ – a futuristic funk featuring bouncy basslines and tight drums.
Look out for Exult on the lineup for upcoming Rebel Music events. The label has been dedicated to keeping the beats moving throughout the year and has been a key player in London’s Drum & Bass scene. Big things are on the horizon for Exult and Rebel Music in 2021 and beyond!
Check out Exult’s mix below. A keen collaborator, Exult has been focussing much of the year into projects with other artists, and has sprinkled some of these tracks throughout the mix. Listen out for a taste of what’s to come in 2021! As always download it for free here
