"It is undeniable that these guys have modern hip-hop originality with the smooth, timeless style of jazz. From their street style to their verging-on Minnesota niceness, there is nothing less than real about these fellas. Always about the music, always about creating, the most attractive part about them ... is their obvious authenticity and raw artistry. Keeping their genuine interests as first priority ... the guys continue creating as a whole culture builds itself around the products of their imaginations."
While Exmag and Kanye West come from vastly different genres and career stages, they are making parallel moves in live entertainment by turning the concert’s traditional role in album marketing on its head.
From the sultry vibes of “Go Up” to the funky beats of “Not The Last Time,” the listener goes from hip swivels to full body oscillations. Featuring only instrumentals on this track, Exmag exhibits their love of funk and soul as well as their skill in creating it. Thick and encompassing, “Not The Last Time” is as familiar as it is unique, reaching across genres and audiences. Their playful and uplifting sound can easily enliven any dancefloor, from the sticky floors of a night club to the dusty ground of a music festival.
-Huffington Post, Morena Duwe
"Containing all the right elements of funk, soul, blues, R&B, and electronica, this evergrowing contingent of artists is not just another EDM group, but a production collective who explore new means of pushing the limits by combining live instruments and vocalists with their own synthesized beats."
Benjamin K x Brunch Life
Joined by the forces of the mastie, Benjamin K and Brunch Life come together to form a dynamic duo of epic rave lord proportions.
Trumpet Player / Producer / DJ Will Magid's music is always a joyous affair. His unique style of live performance and electronic sampling seamlessly blends original music with sounds from across the globe.
Will, who studied Ethnomusicology at UCLA, has gathered inspiration from playing music on every continent except Antarctica.
Will Magid's trumpet will take you to Havana in the summertime. It will take you to a West African wedding and, simultaneously, a French dance club. It will take you to soul music in Japan, a 1920's speakeasy, then to the cusp of the end of the world, where everyone's dancing because they have nothing to lose. The trumpet will holler vibrantly no matter what. And it's a flexible instrument, well suited for his music production style with victorious leaps among sounds from the past, sounds from here and sounds from elsewhere. While he's devoted to his trumpet, Will is truly a multi-instrumentalist/producer. The resulting pieces are buoyant jams packed with rich layers of celebratory horns, bouncing percussion, classical strings and even a bit of ambient noise.
He's had the honor to tour and collaborate with many talented artists from diverse genres of music, such as Afrolicious, Bonobo, Solomon Burke, Erykah Badu, Pretty Lights, Kenny Burrell, Zigaboo Modeliste, Baba' Ken Okulolo, Ocote Soul Sounds, CocoRosie, Jeremy Sole, J-Boogie, and the Mutaytor.
