Here we are another thursday with a new guest in our Banana Interview: Xcelencia.
When did you decide that you wanted to devote yourself to music?
At a very young age, around middle school I started writing lyrics, by high school I was producing my own beats and I began recording ideas, I left high school to pursue my dreams! don’t try that at home!
You’re a clear example of being a father and artist at the same time. How do you deal with both sides on your day-to-day?
I was changing diapers during the day and hitting the studio at night, It’s not easy but I love what I do, so I see it as an opportunity to bring something new and exciting into the world.
Will we see Xcelencia collaborating with other artists in the near future? if the answer is yes, with who? (if it’s not a secret)
Yes! yes! yes! we got a few secrets in line so I don’t want to spoil it and we are also collaborating with other producers and DJs as well.
What cannot be missed, in terms of production, in a good reggaeton mix?
Sound selection is important, a great mix with a focus on drums and a great balance with the bass. Sonically the sound should appeal and be easy on the ears.
You’ve developed your own artist cryptocurrency – The X. What was the trigger to start with the project? Are you exploring new possibilities with it?
$EQUIS powers my digital fan club through Discord and a private group on WhatsApp, it’s essentially a membership into everything Xcelencia with some exclusive content and perks that you might not find on social media! Fans can earn $EQUIS by supporting my music on social media and can also give me ideas for my next collaborations, video wardrobe or what songs I should drop next.
