AKAI SOLO

Sept. 18, 2023, 06:33 am GMT+1

Akai Solo, born Daniel Dickson, is a rapper from Brooklyn with a unique stage name and a fascinating personal history. The name "Akai Solo" was chosen to reflect his Japanese and African roots, while also expressing his desire to transcend ignorance and become a force for positivity in the world.

Akai attended The New School in New York City, where he studied jazz and performance. During this time, he also began to explore the world of poetry and spoken word, which would later influence his work as a rapper. After graduation, he continued to hone his craft, writing and performing at open mic nights and other events. It was through this process that he developed the unique style and approach that he is known for today.

Akai Solo's name reflects his diverse cultural heritage, with the "akai" meaning red in Japanese and the "solo" alluding to his Nigerian roots. This reflects a strong sense of identity and pride in his background, which is reflected in his music. He also chose the name to reflect his desire to rise above the ignorance and violence that he sees in the world, and to instead become a voice of hope and redemption. It's a powerful statement about the transformative power of music

Aesop Rock's mention of the name "Shamar" in his lyrics unexpectedly resonated with Akai Solo, due to his own connection to someone with that name. This chance connection was a reminder of the powerful influence of art, and how it can create unexpected connections between people and ideas. Even though Akai's early rap group was not very successful, it was an important step in his journey as an artist. "During Akai Solo's time at Benjamin Banneker Academy in Brooklyn, he and his friends formed a rap group called B.D.B. They were new to the art of rap, and their skills were still developing. Despite this, they had a strong vision of using their music to fight ignorance and bring understanding. They embodied this vision with the name KITE, which stood for 'Killing Ignorance Throughout Eternity'."

Her latest album, "Se Ve Desde Aquí," showcases a new direction in her sound, with minimalist arrangements and sparse instrumentation that leave room for the listener to explore their own imagination.

Mabe Fratti's music combines the haunting tones of the cello with delicate electronic textures, creating a sound that is both intimate and expansive. Her compositions draw on a diverse range of influences, from traditional Latin American folk music to contemporary experimental artists. This fusion of old and new creates a sound that feels both timeless and futuristic, like a window into a parallel universe.

 Fratti's music has a fragile, almost fragile quality that belies its powerful emotional impact. Each note seems to hang in the air, suspended in time, as if it could shatter at any moment. Yet, beneath the surface, there is a deep well of feeling, a sense of yearning and longing that resonates with the listener. It is as if the music is whispering a secret, inviting the listener to lean in closer to hear what it has to say.

Mabe Fratt's willingness to take risks and explore new musical territory has opened up a world of possibilities for her future. She has an exciting year ahead, with an international tour and several new projects in the works. This includes a collaboration with I. La Católica, which promises to be an exciting and innovative fusion of their respective styles. There is also a new album with Amor Muere, which promises to be a sonic journey into the experimental and avant-garde.

Their collaboration with Mabe Fratt is sure to produce some truly unique and groundbreaking music, combining the experimental and futuristic sounds of Fratt with the more traditional and grounded sounds of I. La Católica. It's a musical union that promises to push the boundaries of what we know about music and sound.

The solo debut of Jisoo from BLACKPINK is highly anticipated and considered one of the most impactful debuts in history. Despite Jisoo's exceptional vocal abilities and influential position among female idols, she has not yet released an official solo track. Up until now, she has only showcased her talents through covers of well-known songs during performances and concerts. With no previous original soundtrack or collaborative feature to provide any clues, Jisoo's solo debut is like a clean slate. However, given her impressive skills in both songwriting and singing, her first single is expected to be incredibly successful and make a significant impact.
