San Francisco-based producer Paul Conversano, AKA Ravenscoon, has been blowing up lately, with massive releases and upcoming performances at some of the most iconic festivals in the country, including Ubbi Dubbi, Summer CampSonic Bloom, and Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. Not only that, he’s recently created a new platform for up-and-coming producers to display their talent under Ravenscoon Radio. Check out the first two episodes with Barnacle Boi and Steller on his Soundcloud! 

Ravenscoon is best known for his ability to create magic behind the decks. There is no shortage of charismatic fun in his performances, and the possibilities are truly endless. You can expect to hear anything from drum and bass to house to metal to classic rock and anything in between. 

Noise Pollution was a perfect fit for this insane collaboration. Like Ravenscoon, they found their influence in hip-hop, dubstep, and metal. This talented duo creates a soundscape of epic proportions by conjuring up some powerful mashups with any genre when on the decks.

Today, Ravenscoon and Noise Pollution dropped “Speakaz,” the first single off Ravenscoon’s six-track EP coming soon to Wakaan. They’ve been gearing up for the drop of this masterpiece for around a year now. On top of that, this is Noise Pollution’s first official release in almost a year, so we knew this would be something truly unique. 

“Speakaz” brings out the best in both drum and bass and dubstep, for a drumstep powerhouse packed with high-energy basslines and absurd synth waves. Right off the bat, you feel deep bass envelop your mind and body as they prepare to bash you with a wild chorus and beats of the most epic proportions. Soon in, you’ll find yourself losing control of your body as you break your neck to this mental new track.

Here is what Ravenscoon had to say about their epic new collab:

“Speakaz is the culmination of over a year of collaboration between Ravenscoon & Noise Pollution. An absolutuely massive drumstep anthem, Speakaz aims to demolish dance floors with a blend of hypnotic vocal chops, energetic drums, and high-intensity sound design. 

Personally, I feel very proud of this song, which we designed to open sets with. When you try to come up with a massive intro song, you have to make sure that there is something that sets the tone and expectation of what is to come, and it must be followed by a chorus that pays it off. With “Speakaz,” we have both of those elements, ensuring that this will be a mainstay in Ravenscoon sets to come.”  – Ravenscoon

“Speakaz” has been annihilating dance floors at recent performances of Ravenscoon’s, and the hype for its release has been unimaginable. What are your thoughts on this monstrous new collaboration between Ravenscoon and Noise Pollution? Tell us in the comments below or on our social media!
