“LX Xander is one of the most talented producers hailing from the United Kingdom right now. He’s a “spooky producer” and creates dark, edgy and unique sounds that stand out above the crowd.“
Emerging spooky producer LX Xander is releasing a new single entitled ‘Afterlife’ , featuring hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg upcoming UK singer Archer Delta and international rappers King Jack (New Zealand) and HighRise (US) — ‘Afterlife’ aptly drops around Halloween on 27 October . The proclaimed ‘spooky’ producer has been busy behind the scenes for a while, having recently produced tracks with the acclaimed artist Future, Minnesota’s Yaydo and singer/rapper combo Hyde. Having already been featured in The Source & RESPECT Magazine and interviewed by Hype Magazine, LX’s dark sound is now starting to get major press coverage and receive recognition from the upper echelons of the music industry.
LX Xander recently released the track, ‘The Red Room’ featuring dark hip-hop poster boy Hopsin, which has received over 200,000 Spotify streams in one month. The new single, ‘Afterlife’ (co-produced by AudioHeartBeat & Steidel ) will be released via Universal Records’ imprint Red Label Records (run by ex-Sony producer & established rapper D. Lynch). ‘Afterlife’ is mastered by Sentury Status, whose credits include Tech N9ne, Vinnie Paz, Wiz Khalifa and more.
Want to hear more about ‘Afterlife’? Hear it straight from the producer LX Xander himself:
“Afterlife is about the dark side of love & sex. I think the UK market in particular has seen mostly Snoop’s playful & poppy side (California Girls…), so it’s dope to be putting out a track that shows just how dark he can get. I tried to keep the production subtle and haunting and just left plenty of space for the artists to do their thing. I work with HighRise a lot already and he really brought an edge to this track,nicely juxtaposed by New Zealand’s King Jack, whose verse is much more radio-friendly and commercial. Archer Delta is an artist I’ve worked with on the low for many years, so it’s very fulfilling to be able to put him on a track with an artist as huge and reputable as Snoop. I think the song will probably have a mixed response, as it’s definitely not what most people expect to hear when they see ‘Snoop Dogg’ on a track… but everybody has a dark side.”
Even though LX Xander maintains a mysterious image, he has a swiftly growing social media empire, with other producers being influenced by his work and creating ‘LX Xander Type Beats‘ and posting them on YouTube. LX is carving out his own personal and very spooky niche. His upcoming production credits list includes tracks featuring Royce Da 5’9, Lil Wayne, Gucci Mane and Wiz Khalifa.
