Ghost Town remix competition winner - Energy Groove Radio

21 Jun 2019

The winner of the Energy Groove Radio Ghost Town remix comp is Kye Bonventi from SAE Byron Bay

Kye who releases music under KYB has taken out the national competition that asked entrants to remix Ghost Town, the first single from EGM Record’s competition winner Nada Katana.  

This is the original by Nada Katana:

And this is Kye's winning submission:

 

Kye’s approach to the track was to set himself the challenge to produce something different from what he normally releases. In remixing Ghost Town Kye wanted to give it a different energy, and make it darker. “I normally produce slower tracks and my first copy of the remix was too basic, so I went in and totally reworked the second half, giving it a heavier flow.” 

“I really enjoy what I do and this competition was an opportunity to explore new sounds and techniques in my music.”

“It's awesome to be announced the winner, to make something different from my usual fare and for it still to be well regarded is a great feeling” Kye says. 

The remixed track is also working double duty for Kye, not only did it win him the competition, but he also adapted the track as part of his coursework in his Bachelor of Audio. 

Kye, originally from Coffs Harbour has been making music for a few years before joining SAE in Byron Bay to work on new music and build on his talent with a Bachelor of Audio qualification.

Managing Director of Energy Groove Radio Freddy Elturk says, ”Our goal at Energy Groove Media, is promoting new talent in the audio industry, and running competitions will help us to get new and upcoming artists the radio air time they thoroughly deserve. Kye's track is a refreshing remix to an already popular song.  Myself and the rest of the team at Energy Groove would like to wish Kye congratulations.“
