Walvis bay based DJ, musician and producer DJ Xavi who calls himself a beat in the kitchen will release his single titled Jive Jive featuring Luvo and a Guitarist Sticky Fingers today.
He told Vibe that the song talks about having fun and forgetting about all the daily problems while noting that he composed and mastered the new song.
“The song just talks about going out and having a little fun despite the problems faced by any person on that day, it’s just a fun song,” he explains.
Although DJ Xavi is one of Walvis Bay most respected musician, he said that it is difficult to get gigs because the town is small and not many people are interested in music.
“The clientele base here is small and not many people are into music. We hardly get gigs during the week, only during weekends which is the only time something is happening here. When it comes to recording people mostly go to Windhoek,” He says.
He reveals that he is also working on his second album which will have15 tracks, titled Koloko Drums Vol.2 although the name might change.
“I will be releasing my second album next year, maybe in June or July and the album will have 10 to 15 tracks, a mixture of different type of genres including House,” Xavi tells Vibe.
He has worked with more prominent producers such as Sam E Lee Jones including musicians like Alu, Luvo and the SMG’s on his up and coming album.
When asked on how he manages to balance between being a Dj, Producer and an artist, he says that it all comes natural, saying that it’s quite easy for him, however, it can be difficult for those that book him.
“The fact that I am good in both departments makes it hard for them to choose what services they would like from me but I manage well to separate both categories,” Xavi concludes.
