Euphoria by Alexander James Rodriguez

October 18, 2023

At the top of 2023, Alexander created ‘Euphoria’ intended to be a fully loaded electrifying bop. The song received early support from SiriusXM Hits 1 Hitbound and topped at #10 on the Top40 Charts on New Music Weekly.

"Euphoria’ was made from scratch, my record producer and I started with the 124-bpm tempo and then we chose a bassline. For this song, I always wanted it to be more dance driven in comparison to my other records, fully loaded with vocal chops and a lot of 80’s synthesizers. We chose over 48 different sounds for the song, plus stacked vocals – of which I recorded eight different harmonies for just the chorus! When the instrumental was ready to write on, I started playing around with melody ideas. Usually, I like to start with the chorus, but there was no real inspiration, we just went with the flow of what the music and chords were speaking to us. The first written were the “Do Ya’s” in the post chorus and the last were the verses. The song was written by myself, my mom (who writes on all of my songs) and Stephen ‘Bud’da’ Anderson. To finish off ‘Euphoria’ we brought in mega-mixer Ken Lewis, and then the song was stem mastered by AJM Mastering out of Madrid, Spain. ‘Euphoria’ might have been my first co-produced record, but it really does take a village!" - Alexander James Rodriguez
