Comprising acclaimed music producers, songwriters, and musicians Alex and Chani (better known as XELAVATE and CHAN1), XELACHAN bring a new era of innovation to electronic music. The pair bring to the table a great wealth of experience and creativity, and new single ‘BONK’ is just one example.

The EDM track is a 4 minute sonic symphony, which will have the listener mesmerised right from the start. Infectious rhythms and melodies, aligned with captivating timbres, ‘BONK’ is an unstoppable track, driven by the pulsating bassline, giving a solid foundation to the track with its explosive energy. Speaking of the track, the artists say,

“It’s mix of old school and new school and finds balance to deliver in any situation. This simplicity enhances the track’s impact, ensuring that every beat hits with maximum force. From start to finish, “Bonk” is a whirlwind of sound that grabs hold of listeners and refuses to let go.”

While listeners might be new to the music of XELACHAN, the artists behind the duo have a vast range of experience to back them up. CHAN1 has been crafting tracks for the best part of 30 years, most notably as a music studio manager at Tape London and his collaborations with Grammy award-winning producer Dallas Austin. His client roster is the stuff of dreams, including but not limited to such names as Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and Drake.

XELAVATE is a relative newcomer compared to CHAN1, but no less relevant. His multi-genre talents, keen eye for trends, and collaborations with the likes of iLL BLU, as well as chart successes such as ‘Very Good Very Nice’, have served him with a well-earned position at the forefront of modern music.

Based in their London studio, XELACHAN are set to change the course of electronic music, bringing to it their ground-breaking production and redefining the boundaries of music and art.

‘BONK’ s out now and can be streamed and downloaded here. You can find out more about XELACHAN and their music online on Instagram, Spotify, and Apple Music.
