After staying quiet for a majority of the year, AKAI SOLO blessed us with Body Feeling, the prequel to his Backwoodz Studioz debut full-length, Spirit Roaming. With no features, and an amazing ensemble of producers Preservation, Nicholas Craven, Child Actor, Argov, and Twentyfifthnight, AKAI SOLO pulls us into his perspective of the world and how much he and his approach to art has changed since the release of his last full-length, True Sky. The product is lyrically dense, on a gorgeous canvas of production, and serves as an excellent musical groundwork to what he's released since. And as always, no words can better describe AKAI SOLO and his artistic direction better than the man himself: “Before the Spirit Roams, the body feels. I heard that empathy is a strength, but we can certainly feel too much, right? Some people spend their entire lives walking that border searching for stability. Others abandon the search. I have fallen during my walk and have realized that getting up this time is daunting and exhausting. That terrifies me. You always think you have felt all you can feel until your heart surprises you.”

Both variants are pressed on 140-gram vinyl, housed in a 24pt jacket. All the records are single-sided with an etched b-side. Front album artwork done by Jefferson Harris (BSTFRND). Back album art done by King David. Center labels and etching design by J. Park. Mixed and mastered by Wavy Bagels, except Marine Snow mixed by Willie Green, and remastered for vinyl by Geng PTP.
