xemplify’s debut album “never too late” has tracks being showcased frequently on uk’s kiss fm chillout show “the rehab” and on jazz fm’s legendry “the late lounge”.
xemplify’s sound is influenced by air, zero 7, massive attack and drizabone to name but a few, and brings differing musical backgrounds to deliver an original and diverse chillout sound.
formed by david ives who started out 15 years ago as a dj and producer of breakbeat and dance music. whilst the scene he was involved in split, david decided to take a break but kept closely involved in the music business behind the scenes in various guises.
in 2008 his love of chillout led him to embark upon a new project. teaming up with chris sargent, a long time friend and the extremely talented vocalist rebecca hayes. the vision was to produce quality chillout music using talented and real musicians. this is best showcased on the tracks “changing” and “i’m tired” featuring a classically trained violinist and a rock guitarist.
working with artists such as the artful dodger, kelly clarkson, lee ryan, the freestylers, baby d, judge jules and krafty kuts xemplify's sound is fresh and strands different musical genres all captivated in their unique chilled and soothing execution.
