Nocow "No Vacancy (feat. Lapti)"
Brand-new Russian imprint Bekas is poised to drop its inaugural release courtsey of Saint Petersburg newcomer Nocow. Called Gather Strength, the 14-track record ranges from techno-leaning jams to ambient, cinematic soundscapes; lead track "No Vacancy" is a collaborative effort which features Moscow producer Lapti. The tune is dominated by mostly dark sounds like the forboding arpeggiations, cinematic strings, saw-wave bass tones, and murky, reverb-drenched vocals. However, "No Vacancy" does manage to find the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel with the help of an '80s-sounding pad that lifts the mix out of the shadows. You can stream the rest of Nocow's album over on the Bekas Bandcamp page.
