One of the most decorated artists over the last decade, Example bridges the gap between drum and bass and the ultimate festival anthem with his latest single ‘Never Let You Down’ out today. Exploring drum and bass sonics for the first time, Example teams up with prominent UK producer Kanine & Australian singer/songwriter Penny Ivy. The single immediately reflects the energetic nature that has been a staple throughout Example’s prominent career.
After his breakout year in 2016, Kanine has been a staple in the UK’s drum and bass scene having amassed over 100 million streams on Spotify alone. Among his many achievements, his single ‘Point Em Up’ was featured in the famed video game FIFA in 2021 as well as a sold out tour of Australia and New Zealand despite global travel restrictions.
Having previously worked with Example remixing his Darkzy collaboration ‘Drops’, the two teaming up was an inevitability. While performing at his sold out show in Brisbane, Australia the pair wasted no time and took to the studio the very next day and created the foundation of what was to become “Never Let You Down”…the end result, an infectious drum and bass anthem. Speaking on the new single Example say’s:
“Kanine and I have been talking about collaborating for some time, so we got together and made ‘Never Let You Down’ with my good friend and co-writer Penny Ivy. My wife Erin actually overheard the music and started humming a melody. Within a few minutes she’d written the chorus so it’s not only my first official DnB track but also my first songwriting collaboration involving my wife”
This week also marks the start of Example’s 14 stop UK tour. Already selling out the majority of dates across the UK, Example is finally able to choose the ultimate setlist from his entire catalogue of hits to deliver his first run of 90-minute sets. This comes off the back of a challenging and rewarding return to the live stage in 2021 playing major UK festivals Creamfields, Sundown Festival and Isle Of Wight.
Speaking on the upcoming tour Example shares:
“This now feels like the most comprehensive Example show to date with 90 mins of hits, new bangers, pure emotions, reminiscing on life and love, throwbacks, remixes, updates and new edits. It’s going to be absolute pandemonium for everybody in the crowd. I cannot wait”
One of the 21st centuries defining musical sounds, Example is a platinum-selling artist with multiple chart-topping singles under his belt. Thriving with his most recent signing with BMG, Example is at the top of his game and threatening to reach new heights in an already illustrious career.
