Drawing from the traditional sounds of his native Benin, Shirazee takes an exploratory approach to Afropop on LOST. He fuses Eurodance with Afrobeats percussion on opener “ZADDY”, taps into kwaito on “BAKA BREAKER” and Afrohouse on “RIGHT THANG” (with Busiswa) and ponders otherness and the right to belong on the Sarz-produced “AFRICAN IN NEW YORK”. The EP captures his nomadic approach to life and music.
