From producing on his parents’ computer with Garageband to now releasing one of the most moving albums on Ophelia Records, Xavi is taking the melodic bass scene to a whole other level. Some might know him from his signature self-released tracks “Your Struggle is Also Mine” and “In Her Hands, Forever”, but for some, Xavi is someone new.
“To The Endless Searing Skies” channels inspiration from Porter Robinson’s “Nurture” and Madeon’s “Good Faith” albums and it shows. The natural elements Xavi presents throughout the album takes the listener on a diverse- emotional journey. These tracks are unlike others- they hold many unique features, such as his mesmerizing vocals and ambient drops. The ten-track album is unlike anything we’ve ever heard on Ophelia Records, bringing a more experimental sound to the table.
Personally, this album truly spoke to my inner creativity. I am completely blown away and impressed with the amount of time and work Xavi put in. “Random Acts of Collision” is my favorite track on the album by far. All in all, Xavi has definitely made a fan out of me. Head over to the link below to check it out for yourself!
“I feel like this album is stronger than anything I’ve ever made, and that it truly represents all of what I have to offer. By getting to use my own voice on this, I’ve been able to say so much, not only through my words, but also through my instrumentation and I think that shows. Ophelia Records has been extremely supportive of my vision for this project, from the sound to the aesthetics. I am very grateful to be apart of such an amazing team.” – Xavi
