Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Devin Byrnes, Josh Sullivan aka Shwa and Matt Sanborn combined forces in 2005 and they quickly found their place in the local DJ scene picking up residencies at the largest clubs in Washington DC and Baltimore such as Nation, Club Five, and Sonar.
Between gigs, you can find these guys in the studio producing original songs and remixing house tracks. Their music released under the name "Exit" aka "Exit Only" have been featured on DJ mixes around the globe, such as Roger Sanchez' show - Release Yourself as well as John Digweed's Transitions radio show. Exit's music can be heard on mixes from DJs like Mark Farina, Inland Knights, James Curd, Diz, DJ Mes, Littlemen and even Derrick Carter.
Exit's signature sound of funky, jackin house can be heard on labels such as San Francisco's Om Records, Greenskeepers Music of Chicago, as well as Guesthouse, Igloo, Kolour, Tight Recordings, and Footwear. One of Exit's remixes for Montreal based Kinjo records earned the title of #1 selling track on Stompy, (June-July 2008) one of the largest retailers of digital dance music.
Behind the decks, Devin, Shwa and Matt are known for creative mixes, moving the dancefloor with generous portions of funky, swagger jackin, soulful, house music. They prefer to mix on two mixers with anywhere between 4 and 400 turntables to keep a constant mix – their idea of a 'live' remix. If you're anywhere near the dance floor, expect to find yourself dancing.
