“Rising sensation Xenia Ghali finds success with Places” Huffington Post, 2017
A DJ, producer, songwriter and classically trained musician, Greek artist Xenia Ghali has shaken up the dance music scene with her recent, stellar emergence. After working with industry heavweights such as Pitbull and the Grammy-nominated Wyclef Jean, Xenia really set the tone for her own career with her biggest track yet in the summer of 2016, ‘Under These Lights’, which reached #1 in the Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart and was followed up with ‘Places’, which also hit the top spot, reaffirming her abilities and providing proof, if any was needed, that Xenia is a talent that is set to remain at the top of the charts for the long haul. Displaying a clarity of vision when it comes to her artistry, Xenia creatively directs all her music videos to ensure her ideas are realised. Xenia is continuing to turn heads and prick ears in all the right places. Xenia’s latest single ‘Stick Around’, recently dropped on EDX’s Sirup label, complete with music video, and currently stands at just over 500,000 plays on Spotify, after being included in some of their most followed official electronic playlists, including mint and Dance Hits. The Track has been supported by the likes of Martin Garrix, Tiësto, Sam Feldt, Swanky Tunes, label head EDX and Mike Williams to name a few.
Owner of the independent label Funky Sheep Records, Xenia walks the line between mainstream success and underground credibility. Both an enigmatic and dynamic figure, Xenia Ghali’s DJ sets are defined by their combining of soulful house and pulsating beats, bringing together shimmering synth melodies and vintage groove laden rhythms for a unique brand of modern electronic dance music. Additionally, remixes for top-tier pop stars such as Pitbull (feat. Chris Brown) have demonstrated a keen ear for reinterpretation and undoubtedly bear her distinctive signature.
Having DJed on Greece’s version of The X Factor, composed the soundtrack for internationally renowned designer Michael Costello’s Fashion show video, appeared in issues of People Magazine, Runway and Madame Figaro and on leading publications such as Billboard, The Huffington Post and AOL, it is clear that her reputation is steadily building across the planet. This is reflected in her association with global brands Adidas and G-Star Raw in her native Greece and standout shows at notable clubbing institutions including Ministry Of Sound London, Cielo New York and Cavo Paradiso in Mykonos, amounting to standout sets in New York, Miami, Chicago and Athens, as well as festival performances at the likes of Color Day Festival as a headliner, Lindos Summer Paradise, Lake Party and River Party alongside acts such as Erick Morillo, Steve Aoki, Martin Solveig, Don Diablo, Dubvision and Jay Hardway.
Xenia Ghali is making sizeable waves in the dance music community, as well as the music industry at large, and remains an artist worth keeping an eye on through 2018 as she ascends the ranks ever higher.
