Kia ora George whānau - attention up and coming music producers!

We’re excited to announce our next new remix competition - or whakataetae - for you to enter.

The George FM Waiata Reo Remix Comp!

We’ve teamed up with one of our favourite Māori artists Theia, to give you the chance to remix a waiata from her reo Māori project, Te Kaahu. Check out the original of her song ‘Waikato’ here:

Put in some mahi, give it a remix and the winning producer will get their song played on George, and you’ll score $500 dollars to spend on whatever you want - maybe upgrade that producing studio of yours!

Download the song stems HERE and get to mahi - then email your entry to music@georgefm.co.nz when it’s done.

Entries close midday Wednesday May 25th.

Get in on the wero whānau mā.

Extra info about her album and special gig:
Theia has also revealed that TE KAAHU will be playing a special one-off show LIVE AT MATARIKI on Friday, June 24 at The Tuning Fork in Tāmaki Makaurau/Auckland. This is a rare chance to witness the magic of the album – titled TE KAAHU O RANGI - in its entirety with a live band on Aotearoa’s first-ever Matariki public holiday.

“I’m honoured to perform my album for the first time, which is also the first year Matariki is observed as a national celebration. Matariki represents rebirth, gathering together and remembering our dearly departed, these are also the themes explored in TE KAAHU O RANGI,” says Theia.

Composed by Theia (Waikato-Tainui, Ngāti Tīpa) in te reo Māori, and produced by the award-winning Jol Mulholland, the TE KAAHU O RANGI album is an immersive experience, in which Theia’s ethereal and dreamy vocals take centre stage against a backdrop of nostalgic production. Using kupu whakarite (metaphor), pepeha (sayings) and whakataukī (proverbs), Theia weaves together a magical tapestry of lyricism and sound, which pays tribute to her tūpuna wāhine (female ancestors).
