As a follow-up to his Radio album, which came out earlier in the year, tomorrow LA producer Exile will be releasing AM/FM, a collection of Radio remixes and re-works that also includes a smattering of new tunes. The album features efforts from people like The Alchemist, The Grouch and Eligh, Free the Robots, and P.U.D.G.E., along with this take on “Population Control” by frequent Flying Lotus cohort and fellow Angeleno Samiyam (pictured above). The Ann Arbor transplant removes the vocoder bounce and playful vocal snippets of Exile’s original, slowing the tempo, and swapping in a more unorthodox beat pattern along with a seriously sinister vibe. The new direction may be a bit dire, but the music doesn’t suffer for it.
