This week’s Local eyes video is from NZ Music Award nominee, Rei. He has just completed a nationwide tour, releasing ‘Tumeke’ as the icing on the cake of a great year for the young artist.
Rei is at the top of his game and that’s what ‘Tumeke’ is all about. Don’t adjust your sets this visual interesting video follows Rei through some of his grounding environments, from the bush to the beach, to the concrete jungle.
‘Tumeke’ is the latest single from Rei’s just-released-album ‘The Bridge’. The album follows up on Rei’s success with ‘Good Mood’ (track #2) which recently hit #1 on the Spotify United States Viral Chart, beating out Ariana Grande’s hit ‘thank u, next’ for the top spot. It also charted on the UK, Canada and NZ viral playlists, gaining over 2.4 million streams. Rei is also nominated for Best RnB album and Best Māori artists at the upcoming New Zealand Music Awards.
‘Tumeke’ is mixed and mastered by the legendary Chris Chetland, who has credits for Snoop Dogg, Bebe Rexha, Dua Lipa and Savage. The tune was also co-produced by D. Love (Savage, Timmy Trumpet, Pieter T).
