Umut Gundogdu AKA TheUmutmusic produces, sings, mix & masters his own songs in his home in New York City. Umut is a talented and endlessly creative artist whose life experiences took him from Turkey to The Netherlands to New York. After he graduated from high school, listening to Michael Jackson, Notorious BIG and Tupac he was looking for a path for himself and became a member of his brother’s R&B – Rap group. Working with rappers as an R&B singer, was an interesting experience that shaped his early music career. In 2011 he moved to The Netherlands and started to produce and learn more technical aspects of making music.

In 2019, Umut moved to New York City to grow his music career. Umut released 3 music videos within a year. His latest releases are a 4 songs project, and he’s shared online that he is going to release Chapter 2 “In My Zone” in November and Chapter 3 “Poison” in January 2021.

Umut explains how he’s making music in his home studio. He says he has used almost every DAW that exists in the music industry such as Reason, FL Studio, Cubase, Studio One, Ableton, Garage Band, Pro Tools etc. But he feels most comfortable in Logic Pro. When he makes music he doesn’t know where and when motivation can strike, sometimes in the middle of the night at 1AM, sometimes when he just woke up in the morning. A lot of times when he remembers a melody or lyric he just grabs his phone and records the melody and later he makes it in Logic Pro.

Umut says he recorded a lot of melodies or drum doing beatbox on his phone. If he doesn’t have a melody in his mind then he just opens the DAW, checks the sounds and if he has motivation to do something he definitely ends up creating a dope beat to write and sing on. He says he likes to chop samples and create new music from them too. He says he has a lot of beats that he created with his own samples, for those he is looking for dope rappers to collaborate!

When we asked Umut what his style of music is, he says he does modern R&B pop vocals on hip-hop beats. Since he worked with rappers for a long time, he likes to create hip-hop beats. He likes some Trap or beats with 808 bass kick and is open to exploring every genre of music. On his current 4 songs project he uses more 808 bass sounds and the songs have more MJ type of vocals on them. He records his songs by himself. After a lot of self-study and workshops he is now able to mix and master his own songs too.Umut saves his last words for other indie musicians who are struggling to create music, ‘’believe in yourself, you don’t need a million dollar studio and equipment, what matters most is your talent and your trust in yourself. And don’t try to be a perfectionist coz it will delay your career. Just create and publish all the time because one day someone will hear it as you do.’’

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.
