Living on the East Coast, it isn’t too often that I make a cross-country visit to California. In fact, the only time I have been to The Golden State was a layover in San Francisco. That might have to change, however, because on California, an aptly-named ode to his home state, DJBooth newcomer Nieve officially has me convinced that I need to make my first real visit real soon. Producer Soulchef stays true to his name, cooking up an airy, soulful West Coast inspired beat perfect for Nieve and guest Tunji to rattle off some of the reasons as to why Cali is oh-so-great. If both emcee’s fluid rhymes don’t paint a picture of the Left Coast’s lifestyle, perhaps the visuals, which highlight a few cool spots, will do the trick. For more laid back, breezy cuts, check out Nieve’s latest album Playback, out now.
