Celebrating some of the best that Aotearoa has to offer, Backyard Beats are NZ's hottest jams for us, by us.

Are you an up and coming artist from Aotearoa keen to get your music on Mai? Simply put together your bio / press shot and a broadcast quality .wav file into a Google Drive folder and send it to music@maifm.co.nz

We get heaps of new submissions every day - but we listen to them all... if you think your song might have what it takes, then we'll be in touch!

Backyard Beats are brought to you by NZ On Air
