Dancing queen and violin virtuoso Xani returns with ‘Michelle’ – a retro hip hop laden track dripping with punchy vocals. This track is the second chapter of the upcoming concept album An Inaccurate History of Electronic Music, due for release in early 2023, which sees Xani create her own fictitious universe of dance, featuring chapters throughout time of fictional and imagined EDM genres.
‘Michelle’ was originally improvised on a Twitchlive stream before being shaped into its current formation with the help of Producer and mixer Jan Skubiszewski (The CatEmpire, A.B Original, Dan Sultan). Together Xani and Jan drew from hip hop roots and added DJ loops, creating three minutes of dirty electric violin sounds, washy claps and an outrageously funky bass line.
It tells the story of a scam man on Tinder and Michelle’s questionable choices. “Michelle lives in Paris. She just met a guy on Tinder. He’s from Liverpool. He sends her songs that he writes for her: “Michelle, ma belle, these are words that go together well…”. Anyway, I think he’s a creep. But they’re meeting up beneath the Arc deTriomph,” describes Xani.
