Off the back of the announcement of her exciting new project ‘CRASH & COLLIDE’, Kiwi artist RIIKI REID today releases the second track from the 3-track-EP, the dance anthem The City.
The City explores the feeling of being out and about in the city with your closest friends, living in the moment and not wanting the night to end. For RIIKI, it’s’ a reflection of nights spent at Wellington’s Club 121, where she’s found herself dancing the night away with her nearest and dearest.
A former dance teacher and passionate dancer herself, RIIKI sees this EP – and specificallyThe City – as an opportunity to put out music that encourages listeners to get up, move, and enjoy themselves.
“The dance world is something I’ve always been so a part of. I want this EP to showcase that world in every sense and I want it to bring joy” she says.
RIIKI‘s debut EP ‘NEWER OXYGEN’ was released earlier this year and was met with quick success, with singles Meet U Again, The Dream State and Say You Want Me showcasing RIIKI’S edgier side and alternative musical influence.
‘CRASH & COLLIDE’, however, picks up the pace, and is exploring a new and exhilarating part of the puzzle; one that transitions into electronic, house and pop.
The arrival of The City is timed perfectly with summer being just around the corner. It’s almost the season of sun and celebration, and thanks to RIIKI REID, we’ve got ourselves a brand-new dance anthem to go with it.
