Xaatu released killer electronic dance track
'Save me' April 24th 2020
Xaatu is the enticing electronic project of 24 year old Sandy Quigley, based in the North-East, UK. The music features elements of Trap and Wave, combined with more experimental electronic soundscapes. He creates delicious electronic textures, having started producing aged just 16.
Growing up Xaatu listened to all sorts; from Emo and Pop Punk to Dubstep and Classical - and everything in-between.
Now his main influences are predominantly electronic producers. Sam Gellaitry, SOPHIE, Flume and Pearl White all influence his sound, and he listens to a combination of those alongside artists like Yung Lean and Bladee; whose art inspires other aspects of his music.
His main instruments are guitar and piano - he can play others too, but not as well. He's been playing guitar since he was 6(ish), and then picked up piano while at uni.
