Paul Conversano, known fondly as Ravenscoon in the world of electronic music, has announced an exciting project. His highly anticipated, 18-track concept album Periphery will be out on December 1st. Ravenscoon has spent the past year and a half carefully crafting this immersive journey, and fans will not be disappointed with his ambitious fusion of hip-hop, punk, rock, house and metal elements.
Periphery has been in the works since 2019, when Ravenscoon envisioned a big project that would make an iconic show on tour. He spent a year writing, followed up by months of mixing in collaboration with Seth Drake. The two producers draw from nostalgic 2010’s bass albums, tapping into Ravenscoon’s orientation toward pushing the boundaries of his sound. He is striving for a wide reach with this release, looking to draw in WAKAAN and Subtronics fans, trap fans and lovers of ambient tracks as well.
Even his release schedule is well thought out, strategically aimed to give each of the 18 tracks a spotlight. The album will be distributed in four distinct EPs, given the story piece by piece. The four EPs are titled Body, Heart, Mind, and Soul, accompanied by visualizers by renowned cinematographer Magela Crosignani. They are set to release respectively, on August 22nd, September 26th, November 1st, and, finally, December 1st.
Ravenscoon will embark on a headline tour organized by Wasserman Music in celebration of the release. He has curated a lineup that reflects his orientation toward community, supporting local artists and diverse acts that promise a unique experience. Ravenscoon made a remarkable transition from corporate America to the world of techno music, proving he marches to the beat of his own drum and is not afraid to take risks head on. He is an advocate for mental health, therapy, and responsible substance abuse as well, connected deeply to his southern roots and overcoming his own personal struggles. He stays extremely engaged with his fans, consistently and intimately reaching out to them and making his music an interaction rather than a transaction.
Keep up with Ravenscoon and be sure to look out for all four parts of Periphery!
