Interview with Xavvi

  1. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  2. A: Although there are plenty of artists that I would like to work with, I would have to pick Russ. I've always felt that my music falls closely in line with his and have proven it with a remix I've done to one of his songs.

  3. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  4. A: Give yourself a break from hearing that song you've been working on all day. Come back to it after you've cleansed your palate by listening to other music or going for a walk/drive.

  5. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  6. A: In recent times I have been focused on Trap Soul, but Hip Hop has always been an easy style to write to. Trap takes a little more time, but that is because I want to have a hook that stays in people's heads.

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: My strongest skill is my writing ability. I like to paint a picture and just have every line make sense. I've taken my writing skills from writing stories in college and have used them for music for quite some time now.

  9. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  10. A: Depending on the feeling of the song, I can bring an emotionally driven story or a burst of lyrical prowess. I am huge on not forcing lyrics to a song and letting it come naturally. To me, forced lyrics fall flat when recording.

  11. Q: What's your typical work process?

  12. A: I like to freestyle to the music provided the first time through. Any bits that come out great I will then repeat to get a good feel for. After writing down all the solid parts, I then begin to structure the song and build around the natural emotion provided by the freestyle.

  13. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  14. A: I record in a home studio with proper acoustic treatment and quality equipment. The intimate setting allows me to focus and provide the best product possible.

  15. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  16. A: My biggest musical inspirations come from Russ, Drake, Ne-Yo, and the late XXXTentacion. Although my music tends to be compared to artists such as Phora and Logic.

  17. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  18. A: I tend to focus on music that speaks to me or has a meaning for the client. I allow myself to listen to the song a bit and just go off of the top of my head to make the creation process as natural as possible. I make an effort to provide deep verses and a catchy chorus for the songs I work on. Any vocals I record are also done in-studio and can be provided mixed or dry.
