10-19 the Numberman Meets the Ak


     10-19, of San Diego duo Parker & the Numberman, just dropped a free project entitled Solus-Superstes, produced entirely by the Ak (aka Aki Kharmicel). The short but sweet record veers in many directions, the production having a strong experimental edge, with 10-19's deliberate, chanting flow pulling things together. 10-19 explained the concept for the record on Third Degree Burns Mixshow: "Solus superstes means 'sole survivor' in Latin. Sometimes you get to a certain stage in your development where you feel like you have to make it happen for yourself. Nobody's coming to rescue you. You're the sole survivor out here. That was the perspective for the project." Peppered with a couple vocal cameos from Moodswing King and AKBARSUN and some surreal interludes, Solus-Superstes is a potent record that demands repeat listens. The project is streaming on Aki's Soundcloud and available for download on 10-19's Bandcamp.
