I know very little about Akela the Lone Wolf, but I do know he’s a producer from Northern California, his debut album Catalyst is dropping sometime this year, and i’m obsessed with the first single, “Waaves (feat. JSPR)”. Easily my favorite song this month. It’s an experimental/ambient track, with a sound and style comparable to the likes of Blackbird Blackbird, Bonobo, Dntel, and Teen Daze, but definitely an original and creative piece of music. I can’t wait to hear more.
