Funk producer, songwriter and rapper Xavier (aka Callum Gilroy) drops his third EP The Soul Tapes Vol.1, which is his first fully produced EP under his producer alias Prod.By CJG.  The EP saw the artist experiment with different writing styles and takes inspiration from the likes of Knxwledge, Anderson Paak and Kaytranada, with samples coming from a lot of seventies music with a soul influence. 

We’re delighted to be given an exclusive look at the video that accompanies the release. Here Xavier tells us more about the EP and the video…

“The Soul Tapes Vol.1 live session was shot by NoCap visuals (J Spinkz) in late April and the idea behind the video was to capture an Old School live lounge feel that also captured the aesthetic of the EP. The story behind The Soul Tapes Vol.1 is a collection of three records that reflect personal stories from the past and present from Summer memories, betrayal, love and a journey of self-discovery- each record has its own story. The whole EP was mixed, mastered, written and produced by myself.”
