Introducing Nocow

For the newest edition of DREF series we’ve invited a good friend of the label that is well-known within the contemporary techno scene in particular and electronic music in general. We are talking about Aleksei Nikitin, better known by his stage name Nocow, who is about to release his upcoming limited vinyl-only album.

According to Nocow, he never knows where music will take him next, the outcome of which can be seen in the body of work he’s put out throughout the years. Aleksei feels equally confident producing EDM tracks and modern electronica, which unbinds him from genre constraints to a high degree and makes for one of a kind music experience.

A resident of GOST ZVUK, he was the first artist to put out a project under the label’s name back in 2014. His tracks have been played numerous times in live and DJ sets of such artists as Ben Klock, Amelie Lens, Laurent Garnier, Nina Kraviz and more.

Nocow himself gives preference towards live, as opposed to pre-mixed, sets, which in the last couple of years have brought him to various places around the world, further strengthening his international appeal.
