Xan Griffin isn’t your average 17 year old teenage. With a year left of high school this California based producer has been making a huge splash in the melodic base scene. With remixes of the Chainsmokers, Marshmello, Just a Gent, and Illenium racking up hundreds of thousands of plays on Soundcloud, this ambitious individual is set to enjoy his biggest year to date with the release of a self titled EP to come later in the year. With over 35k Soundcloud followers and I was lucky enough to sit down and chat with Xan about not only his music, but about his life and where he draws he inspirations from. Whether it was discussing Oggi’s pizza to how you were able to get a Soundcloud banner on your track, this was by far one of the best interviews I’ve been a part of to date. Combining orchestral elements with soft pads and room filling synths, Xan Griffin has made a name for himself by creating some of the most unique and captivating song writing in music today. Getting a start in the scene with friends such as Skrux, Just a Gent, and Saturn, it’s been very inspiring to watch him develop as both an artist and a person over the course of the last few years.
His newest release “Gemini” is debatably his best work to date. Teaming up with singer songwriter WILD, these two mindful individuals created a track that perfectly exemplifies the depth and emotion that Xan has been able to capture time and time again. This track was the first release off his debut EP and as you can notice in the track, this release might have something to do with the different zodiac symbols that take place over the course of the year. For all Cancer’s out there, be sure to stay tuned for some new material coming our way over the course of the next few months!
