Ravenscoon is ending the year with a bang with the release of his new EP “Fun & Games” via Wakaan. The versatile, up-and-coming bass music producer has gained a lot of attention this year, supporting multiple tours with Dirt Monkey and Peekaboo, and playing some of the biggest festivals for underground bass such as Sound Haven, The Untz Festival, Dubaween, and Evolutions. He will also be playing at the Wakaan Takeover NYE in Charlotte alongside Manic Focus, MIZE, Smoakland, and more. As we move into 2022, expect to see Ravenscoon’s name on more and more lineups.
The “Fun & Games” EP is Ravenscoon’s second full-length release on Wakaan, the first being his bass-shattering “Revolve” EP from earlier this Summer. He also independently released the “Rapid Eye Movements” EP at the beginning of the year. Additionally, he took us on yet another magical journey with his two-and-a-half-hour Downtempo Adventure mix while also releasing two massive collabs on SSKWAN and Wakaan with illanthropy and smith. respectively. Whether it’s been heavy or emotional or even a combination of the two, fans have been struck by the diverse range of sounds and themes that Ravenscoon has provided throughout his work this year.
“Fun and Games” draws upon Ravenscoon’s passion for video games. Since childhood, video games have been a huge part of his life, starting with receiving a Nintendo 64 for Christmas when he was a kid and even working for GameSpot.com later on in life, where he did advertising for companies like EA, XBOX, and Riot Games. He even came across a video game sample pack ten years ago that would, later on, spark the inspiration for “G4M3 OV3R” and “OV3RK1LL”.
Listeners who attended this year’s Lost Lands Festival potentially caught Liquid Stranger dropping these two bangers on the Main Stage. Both songs are truly fun, meshing together classic elements of trap with modern freeform bass that keep fans engaged and wondering what’s going to come next, similar to how you move through different levels of a video game.
Drawing inspiration from popular producers such as Quix and Peekaboo, it’s easy to understand why Ravenscoon had so much fun writing both songs. The profound drums combined with the gritty, diverse basses are the perfect combination to get you up and out of your seat.
