Raiza Biza - 7th Floor
Another Hump Day is upon us, and we’ve got a smooth - excuse me, smoove - audio treat for those of you who need something to mellow out to until the weekend. Allow me to take a minute or so of your time in order to introduce Raiza Biza, an New Zealand artist by way of Rwanda. Recent album standout 7th Floor is Biza’s first DJBooth feature, and it’s a gift to your ears if they crave a steady flow over a boom bap, keyboard-infused beat. Producer SoulChef cooks up a winner behind-the-boards and Biza adds his own vocal flavor to give the track a nice kick, adding up to an easily digestible audible meal. Let 7th Floor stick to your ribs and inside your brain, and while you’re at it, check out his new LP, Summer, which was freely released on April 1. Welcome to The DJBooth, Mr. Biza!
