Questions With Kuzi Cee
What influenced you to create this two track E.P?
I wanted to wrap the summer up with one last song yet felt like a surprise drop wouldn’t have been the right move. Instead, I wanted to push it as an end of summer single. So that way people had the idea that something was coming but then when they get to their streaming platform, there are two songs instead of just the one. As well, I wanted to drop a light pack then get back to finishing the larger bodies of work.
Did you set any goals for yourself when creating “Summer Colada”?
I wanted to bring more Afro infused music into the space and put a bit of African influence into the R&B mix. It’s something I’ve been working on for a while, but I just haven’t had the opportunity to fully commit to it.
How was the creation process for the E.P? Were there any obstacles you faced throughout?
The creation process for the EP was fairly difficult this time around. Even though it was 2 songs instead of my usual 7, it took more time to get the songs and visuals done. Especially while balancing the Stampede shows, Edmonton Music Festivals, and getting ready for my co-headlining show in Vancouver on August 21st. I feel incredibly blessed to have been presented with these opportunities, and I can’t thank my team enough for making them happen. This go around, I feel like we have all the pieces lined up, and I can’t wait to get these songs out and start the rollout for visuals.
