Music News - Christoph El Truento produces a #1 on theaudience.co.nz

Christoph El Truento produces a #1 on theaudience.co.nz

03 April 2013 - 0 Comments

Christoph El Truento is a 24 year old from Auckland, New Zealand, and the first producer/beatmaker to secure NZ On Air Wildcard Making Tracks funding from theaudience.co.nz. 

Joining theaudience.co.nz via the music site’s Discover feature, curator Martyn Pepperell championed Christoph El Truento’s track ‘G a l a x y’, and it wasn’t long before many others were too.

“I never thought it would happen, I was even apprehensive right till the very last second. When I signed up I didn't think much of it until I noticed I was sitting at #4 and then #3 on the chart. I realised it was something I could maybe make work.”

After a very tight race between the Top 3 artists, Christoph El Truento finished the March chart month at #1, with Gainsford and Chess Countess close behind. 

This #1 placing sees Christoph El Truento take home the NZ On Air Wildcard Making Tracks funding, which will go towards recording the single and producing a video.

Excited by the result Christoph El Truento went on to say, “I hope it inspires other people in my situation… that more bedroom music producers sign up and apply for funding more often. We need more funding and it's totally possible, a lot of musicians don't realise what they're capable of. “

Christoph El Truento is now the eighth recipient of the NZ On Air Wild Card Making Tracks funding and you can listen to his winning track here.

Announcing a #1 also marks the beginning of a new April chart month on theaudience.co.nz. Who will be the next to be discovered - head to theaudience.co.nz and have your say.
