California-born producer Xan Griffin has been on the come up for about a year now. The young producer has added his melodic dubstep touch to remixes for everyone from Illenium to The Chainsmokers, and more recently began dropping compelling originals that have solidified his place as a rising artist in the electronic realm. Today we’re excited to be premiering Xan Griffin’s latest single and his debut track on TSIS, “Cancer” feat. Emilia Ali.
“I based the song off of the character of a cancer of course. It is a water sign meaning very into their feelings and intimate. The song is so much different from others I have made because it is a major mood change from raging synths and huge build ups to an intimate sensual track that represents this water sign.” – Xan Griffin
“Cancer” is certainly a softer offering than the artist’s former tracks, showcasing the producer’s range in style as the second single off his ongoing Zodiac project. At the impressive young age of just 17 years old, Griffin captures an emotional complexity in this song beyond his years. A soft vocal melody, dreamy synths, piano keys and a slow, subtle beat lend themselves to the production. These elements coupled with Ali’s breathy, smooth vocals create an appreciated sensual mood to the track. Stream the single below and enjoy!
