Newsflash #17: Weekly Update on EXIT Headliners

Welcome to the penultimate Newsflash; we’re only days away from opening the EXIT Festival gates on Thursday, July 7th!

24. June 2022. — Author: EXIT

This week’s featured artists include Nick Cave with his unusual album “Seven Psalms“, Maceo Plex and the NFT collection he created with EXIT Festival, Alok and Anfisa Letyago, bringing new singles, and while we await the new EP by Eli Brown!

Nick Cave: Album “Seven Psalms“

Nick Cave released the album “Seven Psalms“ yesterday. This specific spoken word collection was on the list of 37 most anticipated albums of 2022, created by the renowned American music portal Pitchfork. This portal described the new, slightly different LP release as a “brief but beatific respite during a particularly rewarding era of the songwriter’s long career.”

The legendary rock preacher wrote one psalm a day for a week, after which he included his longtime collaborator and friend Warren Ellis in the production. The project represents meditations on love, faith, anger, mercy, sadness, sex, and praise. We will have an opportunity to hear the best of Cave’s rich discography on Friday, July 8th, on the Main Stage of the EXIT Festival.

Maceo Plex and EXIT Launch a Special NFT Collection!

One of the world’s leading electronic music producers and the headliner of the mts Dance Arena programme on Friday, July 8th, Maceo Plex, has launched a special NFT collection called Shades in collaboration with the EXIT festival.

The minting of this collection, as well as Wings, made in cooperation with pilot and women’s rights activist Christina Carmela, started earlier this week and is available on Exit’s mint website.

These collections were created in line with Exit’s vision that nothing beats a live experience and that virtual worlds can only augment, not replace, live experiences. These NFT collections combine the best of both worlds, allowing their owners to access exclusive and secret festival zones, enter the mts Dance Arena stage, meet the world’s biggest stars, and much more.

Alok Releases New Single: “Deep Down“

After a highly successful start of 2022 and the announcement of his debut residency at the Hi Ibiza club, the most sought-after Brazilian DJ Alok released a new hit single, “Deep Down“; on this track, he is joined by Ella Eyre, Kenny Dope and Never Dull.

Speaking of this release, Alok said: “We want ‘Deep Down’ to be a song for the summer months that makes you want to move, and we hope you enjoy it just as much as we did creating it!“

With its dancing house beat, “Deep Down“ will undoubtedly conquer the summer festival season, starting with the Exit Main Stage on July 10th!

Anfisa Letyago: Video Single “Haze“

Anfisa Letyago shared a new single and video, “Haze“, on her label N:S:DA. The producer/DJ decided to “spice up” this track with her own vocals, and according to her, the song is the result of a journey that began during the pandemic with “Listen“, when she had enough time to sit down and think about how she would evolve and the next steps she would take.

An exciting, trance-intoned club mix complements the single that Letyago describes as the “last piece of the puzzle” of this project.

“The remix represents the connecting link between my latest artistic version and the dancefloor, which is the ground on which I perform every week and make connections with the audience,“ she said.

Anfisa Letyago will bring a new era of her artistic development to the mts Dance Arena on the first night of the festival, July 7th.

Eli Brown: EP “Rudeboi“

Connect your speakers, turn up the bass, and get ready to start the weekend with Eli Brown’s new EP – “Rudeboi“, coming out today! In an announcement on his Twitter account, Eli wrote that he had been “rinsing” this release in his sets for a while now and that it always “goes off” with the audience.

The EP “Rudeboi“ will be released today on the Trick label, serving as an excellent overture and preparation for Eli’s performance at the mts Dance Arena on the first night of the EXIT Festival, July 7th.
