Red Bull Sound Select Adds a New Artist And a New City

Red Bull Sound Select Adds a New Artist And a New City to the Roster


Following the successful launch of the Red Bull Sound Select Block Party in June this year, curators Young, Gifted and Broke are proud to welcome a new artist to their portfolio, as well as a show in a new city for their fans.

On Saturday 20th September, DUX LIVE in Christchurch will play host to YGB’s newest addition Raiza Biza. Originally from Zimbabwe, this Hamilton local is now making ripples with his studio album ‘The Imperfectionist,’ released early 2014, and featuring some of the most talented underground YGB talent. “I'm thrilled to join the Red Bull Sound Select roster. Some of my favourite artists are also part of the team so it feels good to be looked at in the same esteem. Performing with the rest of the roster is going to be huge” says Raiza.

The Christchurch gig will see Raiza join YGB legends Third3ye, Team Dynamite, and Esther Stephens and The Means as they come together for their second curated ‘Presents’ show, and the first touchdown for the platform in the South Island.

“Raiza Biza has been doing his thing for years now”, says YGB curator Tom Scott. “He’s making honest music that needs to be heard”.

“The Red Bull Sound Select program is giving artists the opportunity to push their music further both locally and internationally. What excites me most is the way that #soundselect is connecting musicians together that might not have worked together otherwise. I'm looking forward to working with some artists from different countries and bridging the gap between NZ and the rest of the world” continues Raiza.

Recently Red Bull Sound Select artists Kamandi (NZ) and Azizi Gibson (LA) came together and recorded three tracks at the Red Bull Studio in Auckland while Azizi was in New Zealand for the Red Bull Sound Select Block Party. Their tracks have totalled over 500,000 plays on SoundCloud and makes Z and Kamandi the first official international #SOUNDSELECT collaboration.

#SOUNDSELECT artists Third3ye and Team Dynamite have both been invited to play at the 2014/2015 summer's Rhythm & Vines and Rhythm & Alps festivals, and is a sign of the substantial progress they've made both locally and internationally during the first half of 2014.

For the Red Bull Sound Select Presents show in Christchurch, entry is free for fans who RSVP to the event at www.redbullsoundselect.com/nz or $3 on the door.
