From Münster, Germany, XVW went from aspiring producer to being signed by Sam Feldt's Heartfeldt Records, and being supported by some of the world's biggest DJ's like: Timmy Trumpet, R3HAB, Blasterjaxx, Yves V, and more! Today, we chat with XVW (Max) about how his music journey, and how TEAMMBL Academy helped him reach his goals...
Can you tell us about your recent release on Heartfeldt?
It's called "Tequila".
What style is it?
Which label is it signed by?
How did it get signed?
After a Demo Drop with Sam Feldt (who really liked the song), I got into contact with the label and the A&R even helped me by finding another artist for a collaboration.
How did you come up with the idea?
I was playing around with the tequila vocal and then found some nice trumpet sounds, which I compiled and that became the signature sound of "Tequila“.
What’s your favorite part about your track?
The 2nd break, because it catches the latin mood and groove and leads with an energetic build up to my 2nd favorite part: the 2nd drop!
What do you like to do besides music?
I love doing other creative stuff that is connected to my brand/project, like videos, working on events, apparel. Besides that I love cooking, doing sports and watching movies.
What is your #1 tip for producers?
Not necessarily with producing, but in life in general: Simply START doing stuff. We often overestimate the initial impulse or motivation. But often motivation arises after doing an action, so simply starting is often enough.
Also often we don’t know how to do stuff "the right/perfect way“, but just by watching tutorials we won’t become a master in those things. Start doing stuff (e.g. producing a full song, DJing, creating a radio show, doing reels/TikToks) and you will eventually learn everything on the way and get used to it successively.
What are your goals for the future?
Establishing myself as an artist, playing shows outside of Germany, releasing more tracks and getting them signed, getting to know / connecting with more producers all over the world and create the best version of myself!
How did TEAMMBL Academy help you reach your goals?
I am in a like-minded community of producers, where it is easy to connect with others, where you can support each other in terms of getting feedback for songs, getting advice for any questions you have or supporting each other’s social media / radio shows / track releases. Also it’s amazing which Pros/VIPs Lukas invites for the meetings – many of them were super helpful and shared some awesome advice with us!
