AKOV - The Initiation EP (Bad Taste) | 23rd of March 2018
Bad Taste Recordings
Bad Taste Recordings presents AKOV’s first instalment in the realm of concept album: The initiation paints a haunting vision of the future where dystopian society has embraced a one world religion in the form of Virtual Reality. The priests or “Seers” of this religion replace their hearts with an undying bionic counterpart that enables them to be permanently plugged into the virtual world, which in its unattainable perfection is referred to as Eden. Eden represents what the world could have been if we hadn’t descended into decadence, chaos and war. Escapism in its finest form, whole groups of humans have chosen to sacrifice their earthly reality to ermanently experience the incorruptible virtual one. A narrative that will be drip-fed to the audience with each track, the concept of The Initiation EP is one that will be explored for many chapters into the future of AKOV’s career. With the prologue taking place on Bad Taste Recordings, he hopes to fully immerse the listener into a world that has been written to the finest detail in order to engage them on a deeper emotional level.
AKOV - The Initiation EP (Bad Taste)

A few words from the artist: “I’ve had the desire to write a concept album for a while now and the first major difference in the process was deciding to commission artist Filip Vukoje to make the artwork before I even started to compose the tracks. I communicated in detail what the image needed to depict and Filip brought it to life in front of my eyes. The purpose of this release was to initiate the listener and myself into the next stage of AKOV where I aim to create my music without the limitations of sub genres and preconceived ideas of what my music should sound like or what people expect from me. With that being said, the Introduction track starts in a familiar place in regards to my sound and then hopefully takes the listener into my new exploration of other drum’n’bass territories.”
