What we’re about
Xmakeena.com is all about the unexpected.
If you’ve ever browsed through our collections, you probably already know that we’re not looking for the same old commercial stuff that you listen on YouTube or Spotify. We’re looking for something else. Understand that this makes a lot of people uncomfortable because they automatically assume that a lot unexpected or unusual creative audio works are naturally unlistenable. While there is a bit of truth to this, by and large, a lot of the artists whom we catalog, we follow and cover in this website do a great job as far as production qualities are concerned.
It’s not the production value that we’re after. You don’t have to produce polished stuff that came out of a studio. You don’t have to hire professional sound engineers to crank out quality materials. Instead, we’re looking for heart. We’re looking for passion that is expressed in amazing music.
Now, amazing music, of course, is very broad. A lot of people think that amazing music has to sound really polished, well-produced and all the rough edges are nice and smooth. While you’re more than welcome to think that way, we believe that this term is actually bigger and more powerful than what a lot of people try to limit it to. This is why we understand that really rough recordings have a space on the Internet, and we have a lot of those as well.
If you’re looking for something raw, something personal and something real, this is the place for you because we really bend over backwards to invite as many of those artists as possible.
Accordingly, if you know of interesting new artists that operate off the beaten path, do let us know. We need to know ASAP because we’d love to set up a page dedicated to them.
