Two of drum and bass’ finest collide on a great single ‘Collecting Thoughts’. UK duo Koven and ShockOne bring their latest to Monstercat and it’s nothing but greatness. The artists have been killing it by themselves and together they take it to the next level.
‘Collecting Thoughts’ opens with synth-driven nostalgia as Katie’s vocals build emotional intensity toward an adrenaline-pumping climax. The pairing comes as no surprise following Koven’s support on ShockOne’s Dark Machine Warehouse Tour over the last month, hitting venues across New Zealand and Australia.
Koven share, “We’re really excited to be collaborating with ShockOne for the first time. This was a demo we’d had for awhile, that we both really really loved so this collaboration seemed like a great opportunity to get it finished and out to the world. Uplifting vocal and dancefloor vibes.”
ShockOne adds, “It’s so great to finally write a song with Koven. We’ve been peers and fans of each other for such a long time, I’m surprised we took so long to do it tbh! I’m really happy with how this turned out. One of my biggest considerations going into this was ‘what should ShockOne x Koven sound like..?’ Not only that but what would our collective fans expect? And I think we’ve done exactly that – huge soaring vocals, epic melodies, and larger than life production!”
The track is set to be included in the second part of Koven’s Higher Ground EP series via Monstercat, coming in 2023.
