'Mai Elle' is a fully fledged groover. Built for a disco ball lit dancefloor, LKG's (look good) ear to create human movement is well and truly on show. A soulful key line combines perfectly with UK garage and jungle percussion lines, laying the perfect platform for the group's vocals the flourish.
LKG's beat making skills are as good as his song writing abilities. The infectious delivery of the hook captures the energy of the track perfectly, a laidback catchy banger. Surrounding the chorus is benchmark vocal deliveries from the other two members. Jazz's knack for wordplay is well and truly on show and acts as a perfect complement to SVNO's (pronounced sah-vee-noe) angelic vocals holding down the latter half of the track. All three members bring their a-game, reminding any listener that Planet Vegeta is not just another rap project, but a well-oiled hit making machine.
'Mai Elle' comes off the back of significant momentum for the project. 'Jorja' amassed over 300k streams on Spotify alone with significant hype surrounding the release, leading to the group becoming Triple J Unearthed Feature Artist of the week in December and BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra support. The momentum didn't stop in the live setting. They've recently played Bushfire Relief shows with One Four and Hermitude and opened the main stage at Field Day 2020. Their online series 'Sunday School' also added steam to the hype train, with its debut episode getting over 200,000 views. The series is sitting over 250,000 views across just 3 episodes.
Priding themselves on delivering the most finessed and refined version of their craft with each release, the Planet Vegeta creative dynamic has strengthened to an impressive level. With 'Mai Elle' the project is now impossible to ignore, proving themselves as innovators in the Australian Hip-Hop space.
