The term music producer has been getting thrown around a bit too much in the past couple of years…we hear that this is a music producer and that is a music producer…and then you listen to their music…and maybe you’re someone who likes music, listening to songs and really can’t get through his day without being always engulfed in a playlist…

…and then you listen to a song that you can’t really put your hands on a melody or a composition of some kind, it’s just a bunch of elements put together…that’s it.

…so what? A producer is someone who puts elements together and makes a song. What instrument does he play? The computer? Does he even play an instrument?

So today, let me take you on the road…and fly through “Caught in a Lie”, the latest single from xGCA…which is an actual multi-instrumentalist, doing recording, mixing, and mastering, has his hands in every stage of the creative process…he’s putting all his mind, heart and soul in every second you listen to, every beat you move to and every word you react to.

The guy is giving it 500%…and guess what, it’s obvious in his music.

xGCA comes all the way from New York, USA and he’s been putting his mark on the world, with audiences and professionals alike.

He’s been playing the cello, trumpet, piano, and guitar from a young age.

The level of dedication xGCA has is phenomenal, each of these instruments presents its own set of challenges…and for him to overcome all of these challenges, means hours and hours every day of smart training.

This is reflected in xGCA’s character as a composer/producer in his songs…the level of polish is of the highest order…the layering of sounds is rich…and the performance is top-notch.

Getting to his latest single “Caught in a Lie”…let’s check out what kind of experience he’s sharing with us by taking a leap into the song and checking it out…

“Caught in a Lie” has elements from several genres…pop, electronic, and fusion…it’s doing whatever it takes to create a remarkable song. It’s that simple.

xGCA is influenced by so many amazing elements in his life and career…and he managed to put his own mark and get his vision out into the world by making an absolute beast of a hybrid song with many artistic elements that are also easy to enjoy by different audiences…

The song delves into the theme of betrayal and deception, drawing inspiration from India’s seductive rhythms and sounds, mainly the percussive elements, the tabla, and the sarod… xGCA is speaking out of a real-life experience…that’s why it hits hard.

The song starts with a catchy strumming intro…and will keep popping up here and there…

Vocals come in right away smoothly…

The beat and percussion are a hybrid of the east and west…

Indian percussion and electronic drums…

The guitars sound amazing and the flair they add to the mix is what is exactly needed…

The synth and pad sounds are complete, rich, and balanced…

The vocal melody will stick with you for some time, just a heads up…

When the song breaks into the more relaxed bridge, it’s comforting and when it rises back into the cello solo (yes, there’s a cello solo in the song) it’s just a waterfall of emotions till the song reaches the end…

I believe that xGCA has made a very complex formula come to life, let me tell you why…

He made a song that will hugely appeal to casual listeners…and will also appeal to the more seasoned musicians… due to the amount of polish this song has, it will definitely be noticed by professionals too…

…and after all of this already difficult formula…the musician in him says “let’s do a cello solo”…

…and he does.

Above all, xGCA made a song that everyone will love…and that he loves too.

That’s why it’s only a matter of time till we have xGCA headlining major tours and events, and we wish him all the luck in the world.
