    Raiza Biza Shares Slick Visuals For ‘City Girl’

    Raiza Biza - City Girl ft Embher (Music Video)

    NEW ZEALAND TOUR KICKS OFF

    FRIDAY 1 NOVEMBER - NECK OF THE WOODS, AUCKLAND

    Ahead of his extensive New Zealand album tour, Raiza Biza shares slick visuals for ‘City Girl’, directed and created by long-time collaborator Connor Pritchard. The uptempo track features the honey-dewed vocal tones of Embher, over a hard-hitting dancefloor pulse.

    Undoubtedly one of the most anticipated local releases this year, the Rwandan-kiwi rapper released his new album Bygones on October 4th via Low Key Source. A hypnotic culmination of hundreds of hard drive demos, the nine track record features cameo appearances from Sudanese-American rapper/producer extraordinaire Oddisee, along with AmmoNation collaborators Blaze the Emperor, Embher and producer VULC and more.

    Biza’s new material follows a new sound arch, finding inspiration in the deeply written metaphors of the Marvin Gaye-era soul and the heart-hitting rhythms of 1970’s funk. Binding his grounding in socially conscious thought and observational storytelling, Biza studies the human condition and the world around us. Though this time, he admits, the record finds the balance between fun and seriousness. Rather than be ruled by the lyrics, the music plays an emotive part.

    He tells the angles of the human condition through high octane moments, the party life, through to the low, self-reflective moments found in tracks like Stolen Youthand Trouble where he teams up with Oddisee and Zenyth. Both tracks have gone onto become student radio network hits, sitting in the top 10 of the Radioscope Alternative Airplay chart in New Zealand for consecutive weeks.

    GHOSTFACE KILLAH - Touring Australia & New Zealand - December 2014

     

    The return to Australasia of one of the most iconic hip-hop artists of our time, Ghostface Killah from The Wu Tang Clan will blaze up Australia and New Zealand this summer!

    Dennis Coles (born May 9, 1970), better known by his stage name Ghostface Killah, is an American rapper and prominent member of the Wu-Tang Clan. After the group achieved breakthrough success in the aftermath of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), the members went on to pursue solo careers to varying levels of success. Ghostface Killah debuted his solo- career with Ironman in 1996, which was well received by music critics. He has continued his success over the following years with a host of critically acclaimed albums.

    His stage name was taken from one of the characters in the 1979 kung fu film Mystery of Chessboxing. He is the founder of his own label Starks Enterprises.

    Ghostface Killah is critically acclaimed for his loud, fast-paced flow,and his emotional stream- of-consciousness narratives containing cryptic slang and non-sequiturs. In 2006, MTV included him on their honorable mention list of The Greatest MCs of All Time, while the editors of About.com placed him on their list of the Top 50 MCs of Our Time (1987-2007), calling him "one of the most imaginative storytellers of our time." Q magazine called him "rap's finest storyteller." Pitchfork Media stated that, "Ghostface has unparalleled storytelling instincts; he might be the best, most colorful storyteller rap has ever seen." NPR called him "a compulsive storyteller", and asserted, "His fiction is painterly."

    Australia and New Zealand get ready for this not to be missed hip-hop tour from one of the best on the mic!
