Interview: Questions with Xavier Dunn

Friday, May 18, 2018

Today, Xavier Dunn released his EP Isic Tutor. In the lead-up to its release, we had the chance to ask Xavier a few questions about the EP and what he has in-store next!

Congrats on the impending release of your upcoming EP ‘Isic Tutor’! How do you plan on celebrating its release?

I’ll prob be in my Dungeon working on new music for myself and other artists!

What’s the story behind the title of the EP? I read that you were inspired by the video game Battleborn.

So true. Isic is the granddaddy of Battleborn, in my opinion. He was such a great teacher to me; I had to name a song after him. He said some woke things and I took it all on board.

The music video for ‘Isic Tutor’ is intriguing! Did you come up with its concept? And how do you think it complements the track? 

The idea behind the song is that we strive to solve the unsolvable problem. It’s just a human thing we do. Entropico pitched us a stunning visual glory that aligned with the theme of the song, and I couldn’t say no to working with them.

As a classical trained musician, what made you want to experiment with electronic music? 

Growing up with classical instruments, I guess I yearned for something diff but the same. Learning synths and how to produce became so important to me really getting to know my own sound. It’s opened so many doors to collab-ing with amazing human beings that I’ve always wanted to work with.

Do you enjoy creating your music in solitude or are you a keen collaborator? 

I love both. I need both sides of the coin to keep me sane.

What do you have in store after the EP drops?

Many many many many more songs to come. I can’t wait to show you what’s in store. And prob heaps more eating avocado visuals.
