EXIT, a multiple European festival champion and one of the leading brands in the global festival industry, launches Music & Talent Office – EXIT Echosystem, with the aim of providing comprehensive support and opportunities to promising and talented musicians from all around the world to develop successful global careers! As part of this platform, EXIT has also rolled out its own record label, EXIT Soundscape that now presents its debut track. The fantastic single “Universe,” recorded by one of the most successful electronic music producer with Serbian origin, Space Motion marks the EXIT Soundscape’s grand entry into the global music arena. This single also features internationally renowned artist JES, best known for her collaborations with global electronic music giants like Tiesto, Paul van Dyk, and her three times Grammy Award nominations. The “Universe” and its great collaboration has caught a lot of attention even before its release as it was already played by Like Mike at Tomorrowland and Armin van Buuren in his famous podcast “ASOT”.
“EXIT has an exceptionally high reputation in the global music industry and close relationships with leading music agencies and global stars. These relationships are not just professional, but genuine friendships. We want to utilize these relationships to open the door for the development of international careers for young musical talents that are often left under the radar” says Dušan Kovačević, Founder and Director of EXIT festival and adds “We are proud of the success Space Motion has achieved over the years in the global music scene in competition with the leading global producers. As someone who exists as a top tier festival for more than two decades, we know how challenging it is and how much devotion it requires.”
Space Motion’s success is best reflected in the fact that he reached the first place on Beatport’s Top 100 chart! On top of that, last year he ranked a high second place on Beatport’s list of top artists in one of the most popular music genres, melodic techno! Exceeded only by the duo Artbat, while leaving behind many giants like Solomun’s label Diynamic, Space Motion also achieved a high third place in the same list in the Afro-House genre.
Space Motion shares a unique bond with the EXIT festival, a relationship cultivated over many years. In light of this connection, the track’s title draws inspiration from this year’s festival theme, while the “Universe” music video” itself was shot at the colossal Dance Arena during the festival. The single is now available on all digital streaming platforms (Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, Beatport, Traxsource and JunoDownload).
“I’m thrilled that my latest release is also the inaugural one for EXIT’s label, EXIT Soundscape. The fact that both the festival and I come from Novi Sad adds a special touch to this collaboration – something that seemed almost destined. The overwhelming response from fans and peers in the music industry assures me that this release will leave a long lasting impact,” said Space Motion.
The EXIT Soundscape record label has also formed a strategic partnership with global digital distributor Paradise Worldwide. This collaboration spans music distribution, digital strategy, and publishing, joining hands with numerous artists and record labels around the world.

The tech on these is cutting edge with Evolution 6 Mid Highs and the revolutionary new linear transducer-powered BR132A Bass enclosures that means every beat and hi hat comes with peerless precision and low end weight.
