Ravenscoon Smashes the Dancefloor in New EP ‘Collide’
Just when we thought it was safe to let go of the rail, bass producer Ravenscoon hits us with another neck-snapper. After a steady stream of successful releases, Ravenscoon returns to WAKAAN with a new three-track EP, Collide.
After a steady rise to prominence, 2022 has been a watershed year for Ravenscoon. In addition to joining Liquid Stranger on his DIMENSIONS tour, the producer graced the stages of festivals like Sonic Bloom, Bonnaroo, and Suwannee Hulaween. His recent collaboration with Smoakland (“Never Heard Of Ya”), as well as his Inertia EP from earlier this year, have collectively racked up nearly half a million streams on Spotify.
Collide is a real treat for any lover of bass music. The EP gives us 11 minutes of the intense drops and skull-rattling bass that have come to define the Ravenscoon sound. The producer sets the bar high with the opening track, “Shake.” When the first drop hits, many layers of bass come at you from all angles, making it impossible to sit still. Unbelievably, the second track, “Rated R” hits even harder. This sense of excitement carries through to “Bussin.” And when the EP ends, you’re left craving more. Now, the only option is to rinse those three tracks again and again.
Here’s what Ravenscoon had to say regarding the new EP:
“I wanted to round off 2022 by releasing three of my heaviest tunes to date — all specifically designed to smash the dancefloor. The Collide EP is my way of showing my fans that I can do it all while also highlighting two of my favorite up-and-coming dubstep producers, VLCN and RUVLO. Each song revolves around driving melodies, energetic 808 intros, and massive-sounding bass design. Continuing my tradition of releasing an EP in December, this year’s installment seems to be the heavier spiritual successor to last year’s FUN & GAMES EP where I explored the trap and “wook bass” sound.”
