It’s no secret that Halloween is one of Ravenscoon‘s favorite holidays. Last year, he teamed up with a 40oz Collective on a hell-raising mix for getting into the spirit of Halloween. In keeping with his annual Halloween mix delivery, the man behind the moniker, Paul Conversano, is giving his dedicated fanbase a double dose of spooky season tunes this year. The mixtapes come directly from two live stream events that took place this past weekend, October 23-24. In typical Ravescoon fashion, the Bay Area-producer has graciously packaged them into an A-Side/B-Side gift.
Delivered initially on his personal Twitch, Side A is jam-packed with tons of heavy bass music gems, including Excision‘s “Get to the Point,” Jantsen‘s “Nasty,” Caspa‘s “No Mucking About,” and many more. The mix also comes with two Ravenscoon and Viskus IDs, along with the Ravenscoon and Super Future ID that Super Future referenced during a recent Wide Awake Radio episode, and tons more Ravenscoon IDs. Of course, Ravenscoon pays homage to his southern roots by sandwiching these all between old-school hip-hop samples from Snoop Dogg, Soulja Boy, Ludacris, and more. Be sure to pay special attention to what follows after G Jones‘ “It’s All In Your Head.” That is, a 20-minute-long Ravenscoon-ID massacre littered with loads of acapellas.
The B-Side comes lifted straight from Ravenscoon’s headlining set during The Road To ReVibe Retreat live stream, which also featured Honeycomb, Super Future, Daily Bread, and many more. For the primetime set, Ravenscoon continues to do what his fans love him for by including hip-hop throwbacks throughout his set. From Missy Elliott’s “Getcha Freak on” and Kelly Rowland’s “Like This” to Jung Joc’s “Its Going Down” and Young Jeezy and Akon’s “Locked Up,” the set feels like an old-school-meets-new-school throwdown. As for the newer school selections, you’ll just have to listen to understand.
This weekend, fans can find Ravenscoon in Tennessee playing the Dubaween Drive-In alongside LUZCID, Digital Ethos, and more. For event-related information, head here.
