A nod to the multiverse-inspired concept of “extraordinary magnitude,” Exmag interprets soulful sounds of the future through bouncy space-funk poised to take flight. Informed by climbing synth melodies and effected strings, ExMag music boasts pronounced hip-hop atmospherics complementing its journey-inducing groove arrangements.
