I've mastered the art of producing/writing songs that command the highest level "sync" fees via Commercials/Ads, "In-show" TV spots, Network "Promos", Movie Trailers, Video-games, and in films/soundtracks.
Xander Rushie is a producer, artist and songwriter based in Los Angeles. He works in a variety of genres with a particular emphasis on Pop, Hip-Hop, Electronic and Alternative music.

Interview with Xander Rushie
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I am super proud of my song, Last Ones Left, by Stylo Beddoe. I put it out in 2019 and it earned sync placements on 2 different MARVEL shows - which lead to me landing my publishing deal. That song is special because I was just making what I felt like making at the time - and it changed my life!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Currently working on releasing songs I produce under my actual name, Xander Rushie. Also working on collabs with artists like: Teddi Gold, Reva Devito, LG Team Genius, Sam Tinnesz, Koncept, Voli Contra & more!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both - How could it be any other way?
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: How to secure sync placements? My answer is be authentic, make good music & keep it open enough to land you a placement!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been rapping & making beats since I was a kid. Sampling vinyl and scrounging up whatever gear I could get my hands on. I graduated with a bachelor of science in Audio Production, from The Art Institute of Philadelphia in 2014. I moved to LA and started interning at Killingsworth Recording Company in 2015. It was there I learned about sync placements, branding, writing for sync. I built my own brand up over the years and started securing TV placements without a record label or publishing deal. After a few notable syncs the publishers started contacting me and in 2019 I signed to PULSE Music Group.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I do a lot of work for TV/Film so I have to be able to produce different genres. I really love making funk/disco & house - songs that make you want to dance. My foundation as a producer is hip-hop/rap. I grew up sampling my parents record collection, so there is always an element of that in everything I make.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I'd love to work with Obongjayar, Pink Panthress, Teezo Touchdown.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I typically work on Hip-hop/rap, House/electronic , disco/funk & pop.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Some days are spent strictly beat-making in Ableton, chopping up/digging for samples. Other days I am working with artists, co-writing / recording songs OR - Mixing & mastering.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I produce/arrange in Ableton 11. I record vocals & mix/master in Pro Tools. My rig consists of Mac Studio computer > Universal Audio Apollo x8, Dynaudio LYD 8 studio monitors. My vocal chain is: Slate ML-1 large diaphragm condenser mic > BAE 1073 MPL 500 series > IGS Audio ONE LA 500 series opto-compressor.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: it's not a job it's a lifestyle!!!

I write/record my own vocals for my artist project, Stylo Beddoe. In this scenario I like to work with other producers/mix engineers, but occasionally I will produce mix/master everything myself.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To make something we're both going to be proud of.
