Hevi Levi “Dont You Want”

Melodic techno producer HEVI LEVI returns with another mesmerizing Melodic-Techno track in ‘Don’t You Want’, set to release on the 30th of November via his own record label Joy Group. With his textbook style of Melodic-Techno, HEVI LEVI once again delivers a pulsating and hypnotically progressive track, providing his own interpretation of the 90’s hit, ‘Don’t You Want Me’, by British House producer Felix. No stranger to the scene, HEVI LEVI has performed in underground clubs and at some of the biggest music festivals around the world, namely Tomorrowland, Laundry Day, Escape, Sensation, Space, Futurami, IT, Ministry Of Sound, ADE, Pacha and many more.

He’s also received international support from publications such as MIXMAG, Techno Mood, Electronic Groove, Only Techno, Vicious Magazine, House Music With Love, Earmilk, The Music Essentials, We Rave You, and EDM Nations. In addition to this, his music has aired on BBC Radio 6’s Nemone sitting in for Mary Anne Hobbs, KCRW’s Metropolis’ Jason Bentlet, Ibiza Sonica Radio and Miami Encode Radio, to name but a few. Inspired by greats such as Faithless, Depeche Mode, and Rüfüs Du Sol, his musical style is deeply reminiscent of artists like Kevin de Vries, ARTBAT, and Saint Vie.

‘Don’t You Want’ features a trademark four-to-the-floor beat that holds down the rhythm, as cascading synth lines glide and wrestle for prominence over a deep, bouncing bassline akin to the likes of ARTBAT and Moonwalk. Maintaining continuity throughout, there’s a bubbling arpeggio, set perfectly beneath a plethora of intergalactic effects that stab at the soundscape, engaging the listener at all times. There’s plenty of layers here, as HEVI LEVI succeeds in merging the darker elements of Techno with the danceability and mainstream appeal of House music. Enchanting and melodious, the breakdowns feature the most memorable moments, as we are reminded of the original songs famous vocal sample and trademark trance lead, before it detonates into an impactful drop. It’s anthemic, and best suited for massive rigs and open spaces, although you’re sure to be transported there when listening to it at home.

HEVI LEVI had this to say: “When I was a beginner DJ and young, I was always captivated by a track called ‘Don’t You Want Me’ by Felix. So I decided that I am going to bring it back to life with a 2023 version with my own sound and vibe.”

For each upcoming release, Hevi Levi will also be partnering with artist Nora Solomon who will create a mesmerizing painting on a large canvas while listening to each track. The entire creative process will be documented and transformed into a captivating music video, with the final painting being used as the actual track’s artwork. There will also be an exhibition for the collection which will be hosted in a renowned gallery (to be announced) where the public will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the audio-visual experience. Paintings and songs will share the same title, forging a direct connection between the visual and auditory components of the project. Furthermore, the paintings’ pricing will be determined by the number of streams each track receives in a 1 stream per US dollar ratio.

Nora Solomon had this to say: “It is an honour to collaborate with such a magnificent and talented music producer as Hevi Levi, who I believe will reach incredible heights. I highly appreciate being a part of this project, especially since I am new to this style of music and ready to listen, learn and most importantly FEEL. Our lives are comprised of feelings, which are not always visible to the outer world, and I find it a great advantage to be able to create through music and art. What better way is there than making two worlds collide?
