Drum & Bass Producer/DJ based in Bristol
Alexander Ushakov aka AKOV is swiftly earning his place among the Neurofunk circles of the DNB scene following his debut release through NeurofunkGrid earlier in 2013. Any fans of the genre would soon understand why, taking influence from the likes of Mefjus, Noisia, Spor, Dub Phizix to name a few, his tracks incorporate forward thinking rhythms and enough energy to set off any rave.
AKOV applies a dark, high-octane approach to DnB, with catchy vocal hooks and hard-edged, rhythmic basslines that roar from your speakers in a way synonymous to his iconic grizzly bear logo. Since his hugely successful debut release, his tracks have been getting support from names such as Joe Ford, Maztek, Sunchase, Mako, Misanthrop, Kloe, Kursa, Protostar, R.O and Loko.
Originally hailing from Totnes in the South West of England, Now residing in Bristol, AKOV has found new direction since joining Bristol’s Liquifyah family, a collective of artists and DJ’s keeping the underground elements of DNB alive within the city. The future certainly looks bright for this producer. His hotly anticipated second EP dropped on Neurofunk Grid in March 2014; a date many DJs had penned into their diary, along with some remixes for Denmark’s ‘Brainshakaz’ and ‘Abducted Records’. 2014 is still yet to see his biggest releases to date on 2 of the scene’s most respected labels: Titan Records and European Neurofunk label Eatbrain Records.
