Stereosonic headliner Tiesto – the world’s biggest DJ – is interested in working with Example on his forthcoming fifth studio album. Currently touring Australia with Stereosonic Festival, Example let slip in our exclusive interview that Tiesto wants to collaborate. As one of the main live dance acts on the bill, Example is using this tour to capitalise on the colossal amount of dance music producing talent around him: “most of my next album is going to be produced by people at Stereosonic.” With his fourth studio album, Evolution of Man released a little over a week ago on November 19, he is wasting no time working on new material, already planning session time with Laidback Luke in the long break between the Perth and Melbourne legs of the Stereosonic tour.
He’s not content with snagging the world’s biggest DJ either, lining up an impressive group of big name producers to collaborate on his next release. Among the cream of the crop sit Diplo, Zedd, Dillon Francis, and Australia’s own Tommy Trash. It seems that Example is pursuing a different sound seeing that these producers’ favoured styles differ greatly from the dubstep influence that appeared on the latest release – most notably Feed Me, Skream and Benga. Example fans can look forward to an exciting prospect of an album that is already in the works.
