Rei - Hoki Mai

Backyard Beats 05/07/2021

Rei is stoked to present to you his brand new bilingual waiata, Hoki Mai / Come Back.

Made with an interpolation of the classic Aotearoa anthem E Papa, Hoki Mai / Come Back is a festival-ready banger. Mixing Polynesian percussion with modern trap production and kapa haka vocals, Rei is again flexing his innovative ahuatanga (creativity). Filled with catchy hooks and high-end production, this anthemic tune will have you singing along in no time. 

‘I want this to be a song for all of Aotearoa, not just Māori. That’s why I mixed so many different elements in it, and used both English and Te Reo.’ - Rei

‘Hoki Mai / Come Back’ is the latest single from Rei’s upcoming 3rd studio album 

Enjoy The Ride, due for release late 2021. 

He’s had a big start to 2021, touring the country playing at festivals such as AUM, Kotahi, Splore and Newtown Festival, as well as opening for Netsky at his sold out arena show. He is also co headlining an NZ tour with Sweet Mix Kids in July / August.
