UK’s Leading Cinematic Bass Duo Koven Deliver Empowering VIP Of Their EP Track “Lions”

Following their massive collab with Australian drum & bass tastemaker ShockOne, the renowned cinematic bass duo Koven return to Monstercat with their final single of the year.

Taking to their own inspiring track “Lions,” the VIP sees them amplify the original orchestral strings from the Parallax Orchestra while injecting their heavy-hitting stylings into a fiercely uplifting rework.

Written after watching England win a match at the Euros during the 2021 tournament, Koven turned their energy into an anthem meant for the World Cup stage. “Lions (VIP)” will feature on their anticipated ‘Higher Ground (Part 2)’ EP, arriving in 2023 on Monstercat.

Koven shares, “The VIP for us was something that we pretty much had in our hands the day we finished the original. Having close ties to drum & bass, throwing a d&b beat under the non-d&b tracks we make is quite a natural step for us. We always tend to do it just to get a read on if we think it’s going to have a vibe at a higher tempo. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. As soon as we tried it we knew it was going to work and decided it had to be released on ‘Part 2.’”

As the year comes to a close, it’s indisputable that 2022 was career-defining for Koven. They’ve been an unstoppable force on the live circuit, with over 50 performances around the world and three shows still to come in December.

Next year will see them continue on a formidable run, playing headline dates and festivals starting as early as January. Max and Katie have set the bar high for the second chapter of their forthcoming EP, with ‘Part 1’ earning praise from the likes of Grammy.com, LA Weekly, BBC, and more. Stay tuned for the official release date.
