Example Featured On Alt Sounds
With two Top 10 smash hit singles this year and a Top 5 silver selling album, Example has taken the UK chart by storm, making the release of his brand new single ‘Last Ones Standing’ a force to be reckoned with, released through Ministry Of Sound Recordings on 12th September.
Produced by Swedish pop experimentalist Bjorn Yttling (Peter, Bjorn and John), the synth driven electro pop beats and rousing killer chorus of ‘Last Ones Standing’ have already made their way into Zane Lowe’s arsenal and the track has received its first radio play on Radio 1 an impressive eight weeks upfront of release.
Festival season has been invaded by the monster that is Example live and this summer has already seen him tear down the house, tents and stages of some of the UK’s biggest gigs including Glastonbury, Wireless, Oxegen, T In the Park, the iTunes Festival and travelling across to the Balearics where he’s hosting the White Isle’s hottest DJ residency this season at Ibiza Rocks.
‘Last Ones Standing’ marks the next stage in a phenomenal year for Example. The in your face anthem, ‘Won’t Go Quietly’, launched Example well and truly into the chart stratosphere earlier this year going silver and recent summer smash ‘Kickstarts’’ looks set to be his biggest hit to date with over 4 million YouTube hits already, also reaching silver sales. This coupled with major TV appearances on T4, MTV, Big Brother, Hollyoaks Music Show and Britain’s Got More Talent have made Example one of the most exciting acts to break in 2010.
Example’s army of ever-growing fans will be able to catch him live throughout September and October during his 14-date UK headline tour, as well as the Faithless tour November / December
‘Last Ones Standing’ is OUT NOW through Ministry Of Sound and includes remixes from Benny Benassi, Manhattan Clique, TC and Doctor P.
