An inside look at Underdog Music with The Ingenious King Wizard




King Wizard is a prominent musician, producer/artist and melody maker. Often referred to as a genius by both press and collaborators, he has cheekily adopted this often repeated description by including it in his catchy beat tag ‘The Ingenious King Wizard!’

Alongside his partners Big Papa Harvey and Alderman he launched Underdog Music, a growing production company poised to not only take the industry by storm but also aid independent artists in their journey. Underdog music have been signing new producers and A&Rs as well as working alongside tons of Multi-Platinum producers and artists.

King Wizard draws on many of his talents in his work at Underdog Music. From being a talented producer, working on tracks with major labels, to working with upcoming artists and producers and helping them to develop. King Wizard is doing his part to help shape the future of the music industry. Underdog music recently signed two upcoming producers, Parallax and Southpaw who both came through their producer development programme. Discovering new talent is a major part of the music business, we look forward to seeing what Underdog’s new signings can do.

King Wizard explains the Underdog philosophy well. ‘We really don’t care if a producer has platinum plaques and hundreds of millions of streams, or if they’re working on headphones in their bedroom. All we care about is the music. All the fans care about is the music. It’s the music industry – music first, industry second’.

We love Wizards art-above-business attitude. Has this egalitarian attitude dented Underdog’s bottom line? ‘Not at all’ Wizard deflects, ‘we are more successful than ever. Financially successful, artistically successful, even spiritually successful. There are many ways to measure success, but they all stem from the same thing. If you create something that is of value and improves people’s experience of their lives, then you’re onto a winner. That could be something practical, something fun, or something that gives people’s lives fulfilment and meaning. Music is all three of those things. It’s a practical mood shifting medicine, a feel good fun activity whether listening or creating, and an activity that tends to give more fulfilment than any other pursuit I know.’

We love this analysis and wholeheartedly agree! In the music world, the music should always come first. It’s refreshing to see Wizard succeeding in such spectacular fashion whilst keeping these ‘music first’ values front and centre.

A fresh new face has arisen in Hindi cinema, where extravagant performances frequently take center stage, mesmerizing viewers with his genuineness and adaptability. The definition of brilliance in the acting industry has been redefined by rising star Vidyut Xavier, who has had a remarkable career. From his humble beginnings as a choreographer’s assistant to his acting work, Xavier’s journey is inspiring.

The journey of Xavier began at the center of the Hindi film industry. He was already a part of the film industry because he was the son of renowned cameraman Thomas A. Xavier and had a mother named Swati Xavier, a well-known costume designer. He strongly connected to the filmmaking tradition, which fueled his desire to leave a lasting impression.

His ascent began with a role many wouldn’t consider glamorous: background dancer and assistant choreographer. Under the guidance of Rekha Prakash, Xavier has learned the art of movement and rhythm, setting the stage for his future success as an actor. This early exposure to performance nuances laid a strong foundation for the authenticity that would later become his hallmark.

His commitment to constant growth was a defining characteristic of Xavier’s development. He pursued a mass media degree to add intellectual rigor to his creative endeavors. His combination of intellect and creativity gave him a distinctive viewpoint that he would later apply to his acting roles.

Xavier’s entry into the television industry was made possible by the show “Dhadkan Zindaggi Kii.” He received praise for his natural acting technique in a field that is sometimes noted for its theatricality because his portrayal of Dr. Abhay Sathe struck a deep chord with the audience. The program allowed Xavier to emerge as an aspiring actor by displaying his aptitude for giving characters nuance and authenticity.

Xavier served as an assistant director in “Dabbang,” a seamless transition from television to movies from which he learned different aspects of what goes behind the screen. His ability to approach his profession in various ways demonstrated his commitment to participating in all facets of his endeavors.

With parts in shows like “Mahabharat” (TV) and “Pavitra Bhagya,” where he continually demonstrated his range as an actor, Xavier’s career continued to flourish. Notably, his music video “Jeene De” gave his artistic resume a new depth and demonstrated his adaptability outside the boundaries of conventional acting.

Vidyut Xavier stands out as a welcome example of an emerging talent who can change the way in a field dominated by well-known actors. His transformation from a dynamic performer to a choreographer’s assistant inspires struggling or upcoming artists by highlighting the value of sincerity, hard effort, and humility. He solidifies his reputation as a young actor who is skilled in acting, dancing, and performing his own stunts and brings a genuine charm to every job.

Xavier’s journey has begun, and he is gradually rising towards being extremely successful. He carries all the skills and talents it takes to be a star. He is ready to leave a lasting legacy based on excellence, authenticity, and the unrelenting pursuit of his dreams, thanks to his perseverance, passion, and dedication to his trade.
