One year after the release of the first installment of his AKWA series, Mikano is back with a new project. Named after one of Douala’s most famous districts in Cameroon where the artist is originally from, the AKWA series marks a return to Mikano’s purest form of creation. It’s raw, explosive, with a beautiful and touching melting pot of emotions.
And it’s also the first EP on which he invites other emerging international artists : K-HipHop star Camo and Ivorian rapper Tripa Gninnin.
With AKWA II, Mikano gets deeper than in the previous EP, more intimate, taking the listener from one extreme to another : from a song tinged with sweetness, vulnerability and fantasy to something inflated with roughness and overly confident energy. It is made for those who love the mixture of genres without barriers.
Throughout the 9 songs of the project, the Paris-based rapper us an introspection and portrays the complexity of our personal growth and our relationships. And through his music he shows us his ability to digest and dilute with subtlety all his influences in order to create something unique.
IN ORDER TO OFFER YOU THE BEST SOUND EXPERIENCE POSSIBLE, MIKANO HAS CHOSEN TO PRESS HIS EP ON A 45 RPM VINYL RECORD. SO MAKE SURE YOU ADJUST THE SPEED WHEN LISTENING TO IT !
