African Kiwi artist Raiza Biza ends summer on a high note with a return to his signature sound for the new album ‘A Summer In Retrograde’ the first project since his Aotearoa Music Award nominated album 'Grand Opening, Grand Closing' which was released at the height of COVID lockdown in New Zealand last year.

Featuring collaborations with the likes of Hollie Smith, Christoph El Truento, Beau Monga, NXVA, Blaze The Emperor, Mo Muse and more ‘A Summer In Retrograde’ allows Raiza Biza to gauge the world retrospectively, and from a more positive state of mind.

“This is the first project since I released 'Grand Opening, Grand Closing', during which I was in a creative metamorphosis, as well as trying to pull myself out of the catharsis induced by the process of making that album. But in the background, the world was on fire, and once the dust settled from the ashes of my life, like the Phoenix reborn, so was my inspiration. Hence ‘A Summer in Retrograde’. Taking the obscurity of our circumstance, and painting it with a summer tinge.” - Raiza Biza
