Xavier Dphrepaulezz

 

“Back in ’96 I was a child. I had a dream, as young people have quite idealistic dreams and goals, of, “I’m going to go to Los Angeles and I’m going to become a star!” I did get this huge record deal and I recorded this music under Xavier. That didn’t really work out. I was on that label for five years. I was able to get off because I was in a near fatal accident [in 2000]. I was in a coma for three weeks, as is probably known. I decided that I would start these incarnations: Chocolate Butterfly, Me and This Japanese Guy, Blood Sugar X. All of these different incarnations I released music under to get work in song licensing and pretty major Hollywood films. I did that for about eight years and then I quit for five years. I decided to come back. I was always thinking, “Hey, an incarnation is always a more interesting character. He gets involved in this music and he finds this new means of expression.”
