I am Xan Helsing from Florida
- As a creative it’s often hard to label yourself as one thing – what all do you create?
I mainly like to focus on music as being an artist
but I am taking steps and learning how to produce from my friend Stello.
I really like to be a versatile person, I have the mindset where it is like “if I put my mind to it I can do it”
- When did you start?
I mean I always wanted to make it but I have been writing music since I was younger,
never really got into making my own music till I was 16.
- How would you describe your unique sound?
I usually just make a song based on my current mood.
I try not to force anything through my music.
Growing up I had a lot of influences from Rock, and Rap music. I usually just like to make music that sounds good to me and based on what I like. I will never make some stupid shit that im not a fan of.
You recently dropped “Blood on my fist” tell us a bit about the track
Half of my verse was written and the rest was a freestyle.
It took about 30 minutes to record and about 30 minutes to mix, to be honest I wished I spent more time mixing it to make it sound better.
– Did you have any collaborators ?
Yes my brother SonOf7aran7ino me and him still collaborate to this day.
– What’s the reaction been like?
It has been really good so far.
I don’t like to pay attention to the negative stuff because at the end of the day it doesn’t really matter.
– What was your goal with the track?
To just put out a banger that people can just bop to, something to play at a party, in a car, whatever it may be.
– What’s your favorite part of the song?
Honestly I love Tarantino’s part, but my favorite was definitely my verse when I said
“ Damn I feel just like Itachi, she ride me like kawasaki, yeah she hot just like wasabi, fucked her spanish mami, speak a lil russian but no commy, cyka tried to call me need that pussy asap ain’t no rocky.”
– Are there Any projects coming up you’re excited about?
I don’t plan to drop an album soon or anything.
I am more focused on dropping singles till I get more of a buzz,
I do plan to drop a tape this summer though. I am excited to drop some of the songs I have with my brothers from CV, StelloSkerse, DeadsDenizin,
I am waiting on the verses from the rest but trust me, they are gonna be straight fucking bangers.
– What are some of your inspirations in creation or life in general?
I love rock music, bands like Slipknot, Three Days Grace, Green Day, Misfits, Dead Kennedies etc.
Rap music wise there are honestly too much, while im influenced from 2000’s rap like 36 mafia and 50 cent and all that.
New rappers like X, Peep, Zillakami, Nascar Aloe, Slutty Sonny, ColdHart, $B, they inspire me to keep going with my music.
– What’s something you’d go back & tell yourself at the start of it all?
Do not trust everybody, start investing, and start putting your music out earlier and take the steps to learning better promotion, also to learn how to mix and master properly.
Some people like to ask me what I think of everything that is going on in the world.
To be honest I do not like politics or talking about religion or any of that.
I believe we are all people and we should love each other no matter what race, ethnicity, sexuality any of that.
At the end of the day there is too much negativity surrounding everybody and we should not waste our time spreading bad energy around. I love all my fans no matter what.
– Where can readers find you?
They can find me on my instagram page @xanhelsing same thing with soundcloud snapchat all of that. I talk to everybody whether they be a fan or not.
