Two of our favorite acts in the game right now, Ravenscoon and Smoakland, have linked up to bring fans their highly-anticipated, energy-filled collab, “Never Heard Of Ya”, out now on Wakaan.
2022 has been quite the year for both Ravenscoon and Smoakland. Both projects truly reigned in their arrival this year, touring with some of the biggest artists in bass music like Liquid Stranger, Mersiv, Jantsen, and more. Both projects also released their most cohesive bodies of work to date – Ravenscoon released his six-track Inertia EP via Wakaan while Smoakland put out their five-track Smoak Sesh EP via Deadbeats. These EP placements represented a monumentally-achieved goal for both projects.
On the festival circuit, we saw these legends in the making play massive events like Electric Forest, Bonnaroo, Ubbi Dubbi, Deep Tropics, and several others. Fall touring is already off and running, with Smoakland embarking on the Smoak Sesh tour based around their Deadbeats EP release. Ravenscoon just started a tour with Liquid Stranger, featuring other HIHF favorites on the supporting card like Tape B and Tripp St. Not only are they making a bunch of stops as just those four, but there are also several curated Wakaan takeover events taking place in Brooklyn and Denver. Let us know in the comments if you’ll be seeing either tour this Fall!
“Never Heard Of Ya” is one of those songs that truly allows you to unleash all of your energy. The combination of catchy vocals stating “Track Murderah, Ain’t Never Heard Of Ya”, the smack-you-in-the-face drums, and the rising lead synths are tastefully insane. It honestly makes me feel like Harry from Smoakland at the gym, where it is mandatory to add a plate as soon as the first drop hits. For those who have been following Ravenscoon for a while, you may remember the initial idea for this track was a saucy drum & bass WIP in 2020. It’s so cool to see how this eventually became a massive drumstep anthem, and a collaboration with two of his friends at that.
We can’t wait to see what’s next for these guys. What did you think of “Never Heard Of Ya” by Ravenscoon and Smoakland? Let us know in the comments below or on our social media!
