It was only a matter of time… Chomping into #KorsakovMusic with the 8,000,000 pascal bite force of a North American grizzly, #AKOV inserts himself so hard onto the label’s roster he takes up half its name. Get ready for ‘#Rebirth’: A feisty, three track ode to mother nature’s reload.
Some say regeneration, we say murderation: ‘#Rebirth’ sets the scene with turbine girth. Sitting somewhere between neuro, foghorns and a Boeing 777 GE9X engine, it marks the latest chapter in #Akov’s constantly evolving sound. All thrust and gusto, it adds a whole new harmonic light on the gutter sound du jour.
‘#Rebirth’ backed by two equally forthright, explorative designs. With its addictive, angular riff ‘#AlteredCarbon’ toys with the DNB DNA. A fugly, furious fusion of tech, dancefloor and jump-up, it’s absolute weapons grade material for DJs on all sides of the roller paradigm and it sets us up perfectly for ‘#Chub’. A chugging, militant finale, powered by soaring electro-inspired bass textures and all manner of twisted, gnarled edits, this brings all the boars and sows together with fitting fire.
Three tracks, three sense-attacks: once again #AKOV has taken his signature maximal sound to brave new murky corners of drum & bass music’s darkest nether regions. These are the bear necessities, and #AKOV won’t rest at ease until he’s bitten more off 2020 than any of us can chew.
