Los Angeles producer Exile is known for his consistent production releases and for catapulting artists like Blu, Aloe Blacc, and Fashawn into the industry spotlight. This morning, without warning, he gifts us with his brand new instrumental album, Zip Disks & Floppies.
The project was crafted using his long-time favorite tool, the MPC 2000 XL, but the era with this familiar friend may be coming to an end. "My beats are created using an MPC2000 XL and a zip drive capable of holding up to 15 beats," he explained in a press release. After creating hundreds of tracks throughout the years he has reached his last 10 zip disks, resulting in a vow to step away from his weapon of choice and switch to a new beatmaking machine.
"These beats are joints I had laying around that were never used, but it's still heat. Bang these beats loud as we near the end of my beats on the MPC 2000 XL," he said in promotion of the new project.
