Find Your Sound Interview : “5 Questions for Xavier Clayton”
FYS : “Congratulations, Xavier, on your two simultaneous releases on Universal Flow Records. Can you tell us a bit about them?
Xavier Clayton : “Ah, Thanks! “High High High” is a Pop, Dance, R&B summer track. It was produced by Evi Sambo at Brutu Music. We wanted to really put a positive vibe on it after all of this pandemic nightmare we’ve all been through. Just to make something really happy that people can dance to. It’s already got a ton of streams and downloads on Beatport and entered the Top 100 Hype for its first two weeks. “Drowning” is a Trance, EDM dance track. It also is doing well and getting a lot DJ support internationally. So, we’re glad.”
FYS : “Like you said, both are good floor fillers after a year in lockdown. Is that why you wrote them?”
Xavier Clayton : “Of course! People are coming out now. DJs and artists are performing again. We need a lot of good energy! We can have fun again.”
FYS : “Haha… That’s right! You’ve written some big hits before haven’t you?”
Xavier Clayton : “Yes. “The World Is Mine”, I wrote for David Guetta. The lyrics. And “Closer To Me” for Chab. Plus a lot of other tracks for other artists and rappers. Some of these songs are even in films. But, for “High High High” and “Drowning”, they are the first songs I am singing. They are the first with me as the singer-songwriter.”
FYS : “Nice! I was listening to them in my car on the way here… Tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into music.”
Xavier Clayton : “I always have ideas for songs… plus I love Pop, Dance, and R&B music. But, at heart, I’m a writer. I write books, songs, poems… whatever. My creativity comes out that way and I like communicating in that form. Telling stories. When write, for myself or other artists, I am really in my element. It feels like a game or a crossword puzzle, or something. To come up with ideas that can be put to music.”
FYS : “What’s next for Xavier Clayton?”
Xavier Clayton : “At the moment, I’m working on a lot of new songs! Me and Universal Flow Records are excited about the next one… it’s called “Again”.
FYS : “Can’t wait!”
