    i don't really tend to agree with this statement. he's gone kinda flat lately, not really doing anything for me. contra was pretty good, but think that might be down to the lomax hook up.
    i do like xample, but i wouldn't say he's on fire at the moment. maybe smouldering a little bit.

    this.
    gotta understand tho once someone has an absolute smash like lowdown the expectations grow for something of equal or more effectiveness, im sure he'll have plenty more killers lined up for this year :)

    Don't think he's quite worthy to be on Ram. His music isn't that innovative or different and he's been rinsing the same sound for time. Bit hit and miss really, needs to be more consistent.

    u guys ever think ram put boundries up for him to fit into?

    hes such a sound guy and i know hes just concentrating on this kinda style cause its what ram want from him atm. if thats whats gonna sell to the masses, the more bookings he gets..etc.

    he has got a lot more to give trust and i for one cant wait to hear

    I love xample but i do think he needs a new sound bank! When he teams up with Lomax he produces some awesome tracks but when hes on his own his tunes are pretty much made up of the same sounds of previous tracks! Productions still fuckin rude and i still buy his tracks but would like to see him use a wider variety of sounds in his tracks. The Infamous is a god damn killer! Love dropping that!!!

    I still think he set the bar quite high for himself when he released lowdown as everything he put up after wasnt really up to much, I loved contra, but as Riisu said before that could have been due to Lomax's imput.
    I heard Pascal open a set with a new Xample bit recently and it blew my fooking socks off, so im looking forward to him evolving a bit more this year and developing his sound.

    Wicked producer IMO (y)
