Akov – ‘No More’

Akov
No More / Lights Out
PRGRAM101

With one foot placed firmly in Vienna and the other in the UK, Akov has extracted the very best from each scene and injected this into his music. Everything from his production, live presence and persona as an artist is notorious, which has led to him being one of the most renowned newcomers from over the past two years. And it’s since given him a platform through Ram’s sister-label Program. It’s the home of his forthcoming single ‘No More’ and ‘Lights Out’, following his unique release on the Ram Record’s 2020 compilation ‘Troubles’ ft. MC Mota and Urso. Although this time, it’s a return to his no-holds-barred, stripped back sound.

With the plucky, driving energy of ‘No More’ being delivered alongside the upfront, bass-twisting elements of ‘Lights Out’, it’s once again time to get with the Program. Although this time, it’s with Akov taking you into his own design.

First “Japanese Emperor” offspring hatch in Europe | AFP

For the first time in Europe Japan’s national butterfly, the “Japanese Emperor”, has given offspring, in Austria’s Schoenbrunn Zoo in Vienna. The males are bright blue on the upper side of the wings. The females are bigger, but unimposing and brown. This was made possible by the partnership between the district of Hietzing (13th municipal district of Vienna) and the city of Tamba in the south of the Japanese peninsula of Honschu, which brought several eggs and caterpillars of the butterfly as presents and handed them over to the zoo. The caterpillars pupate next year in June and hatch in July.
