Riiki Reid – Skin: 13th Floor New Song Of The Day

Homegrown artist RIIKI REID (Ngāti Porou), releases the title track and final installment of her up close and personal EP ‘SKIN’.

Riiki ReidIn 2019 Raquel Abolins-Reid made the decision to evolve her musical moniker from RIIKI to RIIKI REID, a name she felt better represented who she is as a performer and creative. The goal was to release three EPs, each one distinctly different yet uniquely RIIKI REID, giving her the creative space to explore different sounds and genres.

First came the alt-leaning NEWER OXYGEN EP (featuring the edgy ‘Meet You Again’); then the pop & dance fueled CRASH & COLLIDE EP (which featured her club-ready, Top 20 NZ radio hit ‘The City’), and now showcasing her songwriting and vocal talents – the SKIN EP (featuring ‘Home With Me’ Top 40 Radio single, the dream pop collaborative single ‘Like You’ feat. Balu Brigada), and the latest title track which has been a hit at recent live shows.

Consistently challenging herself throughout the process of making the SKIN EP, RIIKI REID has cemented her place in the industry as a multi-talented producer, dancer, video director, and singer/songwriter.
