AKOV - Rebirth (KORSAKOV)

It was only a matter of time… Chomping into Korsakov Music 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 ‘Altered Carbon’ 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
