What a way to end the year! MAD MOON is a collaborative project between talented New York-based rapper AKAI SOLO and producer iblss. The two combine on their new album MAD SPACE to provide a mesmeric album full of introspective raps and a beautiful and soulful soundscape.

“Universal Ace” kicks the album off with a stunning synth and key heavy opener with hard-hitting, introspective and philosophical verses from AKAI SOLO, who is able to paint a vivid pictures with his intricate wordplay and high energy voice. “’94 The Dog Year” is a hard-hitting boom bap track with more intricate lyricism, while “Star Stepper///Ageha’s Stance” is an immersive soulful cut that captures Akai’s darker, introspective and intellectual character. “Crescent Reflection” talks about self exploration reflection as his raw honesty shines through with poignant wordplay. There’s so much to unpack on this project. From the philosophical to the personal, AKAI SOLO really comes into his own on this album, creating vivid and poignant images through his words, as iblss’ soundscape throughout is colourful and incredibly soulful.
