Levi’s song destined for gameshow
Levi Williams is making history with his first original single.
Making History, the proposed name of his original track, will feature in the upcoming series two of Australia’s X Venture Family Challenge.
The Bethlehem singer and music producer entered the X Venture competition which invited young musicians and producers to remix their gameshow’s theme song
Treasure by Sydney band Edens March to submit for competition. High schools throughout New Zealand and Australia entered.
Levi, 17, completely remade the song into a dance/rave track.
“The original song was very contemporary with standard guitar, drums and synthesiser. I took the vocals and changed everything else. I did all the instruments myself and turned it into amassive dance music rave.”
Levi won the competition — his remix was personally selected by X Venture and Edens March.
The prize was the opportunity to record an original track at producer and sound engineer Ben Malone’s studio in Auckland. The song is halfway completed and Levi will be able to finish it on his mixing equipment at home.
Levi’s win means his remix of Treasure will feature on the family challenge series in 2019 and Making History (name still to be decided) will feature later in the series.
“It’s such amilestone for me,” he says. “I thought itwas a great opportunity because this is what Iwant to do, my ideal dream would be to get into the electronicmusic industry but to make music with up lifting messages and lyrics.”
Levi would also love to be a DJ as well as music producer. He’s a lighting technician as well. Levi has one more year to go at Otumoetai College before he plans to study music at Wintec in Hamilton. He is destined to play DJ Jack Scott at the school’s production of High School Musical next year.
Levi Williams’ song is due to feature on an Australian game show.
