Harvo | Te Ahi Top 10
Written by The Team on 11 February 2021
This week’s Te Ahi Top 10 winner was Harvo with his track ‘Faceless’
Harvo is an 18 year old producer from Christchurch. Interested in music production from a young age, he started producing music on an old PC in 2014, then buying Ableton in 2016 and never looking back.
His music takes influences from a variety of sources, shifting between house, techno and breaks, usually with emotional vibes and dark moods. Harvo has also been known to dabble in some EDM and hip hop/rnb as well. He started self-releasing his music in 2020 and has steadily been releasing music in a variety of electronic genres since then.
“‘Faceless’ was originally just an experiment with some interesting synth sounds, but I ended up really liking it and finishing the track. I’m stoked to have it released on such a great VA album as well.”
Another thing that Harvo has been doing for a while is Youtube. In August 2020 he had the stupid idea to make a beat out of monkey noises. After uploading the song to youtube, it quickly gained hundreds of thousands of views, and kick-started his youtube channel. The video is currently sitting at 1.2 million views, and the song is at 400k on spotify.
Future projects and releases include a 3-part series of singles (starting on March 1st!!), possibly an album, some more collabs and many more youtube videos.
