Words: Dylan Murphy
The versatile Galway artist makes her first foray into the world of afrobeats after a busy festival season.
Paradoxically, if there’s one thing you can say with certainty about Celaviedmai, it’s that her sound is unpredictable. It’s what makes us click play every time a new track lands. After trying her hand at straight rap, drill, pop and RnB she’s returned with an afrobeats cut just before the end of summer.
‘Go Down Low’ draws inspiration from Burna Boy, Amaarae and Oxlade and sees Mai move to more club-oriented sounds. Written from the perspective of “a moneygrabber in the club” and produced by tr2vinhobeatz, the cut is her most uninhibited to date.
The track comes after Mai performed at St. Patrick’s Festival, hosted and performed at the sold out Havana Club x Mo Cultivation event and performed in Limerick City as part of her debut with The X Collective.
