Styles in Black is back with the second full-length album in the eclectic beatmaker’s discography - Mind Vacation.

‘Mind Vacation’ was crafted in northern South America over the past year after Styles initially left what was familiar in America to pursue a more open and conscious experience in the southern hemisphere, away from the everyday grind of life that so many of us are familiar with. Intending to stay for only a period of months, COVID-19 and the current climate of the United States has seen Styles make a more permanent home in South America. This album is a reflection of the experiences, memories, and frame-of-mind garnered throughout.

As heard in the voiceover of the opening title track of the album, Mind Vacation (featuring Philos label-mate Derlee) perfectly frames the careful and intentional message behind the album:

"The stress of the streets can hold you down, you know? In this concrete jungle, you need to find a little time for meditation. So quiet your mind, and open your heart, and find your true self. The peace, the joy. The
silence. Within your heart is a place of silence and supreme wisdom. When you arrive there, the whole world will be your home. Find that place."
- Styles in Black

Mind Vacation is a fun, contemplative, and welcomed summer-time mental break from the daily grind and heavy mind that many of us are experiencing currently, and offers a fresh and valuable perspective for the listener.
