The fresh sounds of the new school of local hip hop, fused with a definite Kiwi soul and flavour.

Raiza Biza's smooth baritone and contemplative storytelling blurs into jazz/soul-tinged beats, speaking to African-American music and the rhythms of growing up in Zambia and South Africa.

One-woman band Villette is all about singing, producing, DJing and song writing. Her sound is a mix of RnB, hip hop and electronic soul.

1174's Shingi and Muche Murare are the full package, well-known for hard-hitting bass lines and heavily distorted 808s, with a dynamic sound that stretches to beautiful, melodic compositions.
