Surprise! Enigmatic Electronic Producer SAVANT Ends 2 Year Hiatus In Spectacular Fashion

After a two year hiatus to refresh and refocus, electronic music scene iconoclast Savant returns with a mischievous gift box of musical originality, “Surprise.” A lighthearted, coming-of-age preview of what’s to come, “Surprise” takes all of the best elements of the last ten years of electronic dance music–House, Glitch, Dubstep, etc.–and melds them into a single masterpiece that will dominate both dancefloors and headphones.

“I believe people want listening music – even on the dancefloor!”

Aleksander Vinter, the Norwegian artist who in the last 7 years has released over 20 recordings under different project titles like Savant, Vinter In Hollywood, and Blanco to name a few, is best known dance-music culture’s most unpredictable, impossible-to-pigeonhole enigma. With releases as diverse as they are experimental, that reputation has remained constant and well earned throughout a madly prolific career spanning numerous singles, remixes, nominations for Norwegian Grammys, and 11 (!) full-length albums.

On the one hand, Savant deploys the kind of speaker-shredding bangers that have made him one of dance music’s most popular rising stars: his dynamic live set drives crowds at mega-festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival into abandon, yet Savant refuses to conform to EDM genre demarcations – or any, for that matter.

“‘Electronic Dance Music’ is the most generic term, which doesn’t apply to what I do,” Vinter explains of the sound he’s dubbed “complextro.” “It’s all about putting everything into one pot of musical ether. I don’t have a rigid formula; my music manages to be comfortable and uncomfortable at the same time. I like breaking rules – that’s where new stuff emerges.” Indeed, this is not your grandmother’s moombahton: 8-bit videogame soundtracks, trap, disco, house, electro, classical, ‘90s big-beat electronica – even ‘70s glam rock and ‘80s new wave finds its way into his sonic odysseys. “I like how a group like Queen is very theatrical and harmonized,” Vinter says. “That epic feeling, plus the style of David Bowie, and the spunk of Prince – that’s what I’m going for, but via dance music.

His fan base is as religious as his music is diverse. His live act is a live interactive set of music of his own creation, peppered with favorites, that never repeats from show to show. Each show it truly unique but tied together by his tendency to share his newest music with his fans. Savant wants to create the same feelings that early DJ’s would evoke on their dance floors, that feeling of discovery and seeding the question, “WHAT SONG WAS THAT!? I NEED TO HAVE IT.”

The Eiffels Debut New Music Video for “You Got Me”

static1.squarespace.com

LA synth-rock band The Eiffels have just released a new music video for their single “You Got Me”. The trio’s infectious brand of indie-rock infused 80’s pop is present in full force on the track and it would be right at home on Spotify playlists with artists like M83 and The Killers.

It’s a cautious love song about the rollercoaster of emotions that come with infatuation” – frontman Sean Ulbs.

You_Got_Me_iTunesThe stadium-ready hooks of The Eiffels has already caught the attention of major radio stations like KROQ and their music has been featured in the TV show The Only Way is Essex. “You Got Me” will be on the band’s upcoming EP out this fall (release date TBA), but you can get the single on iTunes, and stream it on Spotify and all major services now.

About The Eiffels:

Relix Magazine describes The Eiffels’ “sleek dance rock” as “contagious”. Yahoo Music raves, “Los Angeles buzz band, The Eiffels, has the music scene in a swirl with its catchy ’80’s synth pop.” And PureVolume calls their songs, “shimmering electro-pop anthems.”

The week of its release, their debut EP was hailed by Baeble Music as an “opening salvo that any band would dream of,” and was the 15th most added record on U.S. college radio. They’ve since received support from major radio stations from Los Angeles’ KROQ and KLOS, to San Diego’s 91X and Z90.

After an ambitious United States tour, continuous buzz, and seeing their music featured in hit television shows like the The Only Way is Essex, The Eiffels are ready to release their new EP, complete with the same diabolically catchy hooks and an even bigger sound.

Mr. Kristopher Teams With Madhatter! on “SIX,” Out NOW On Panda Funk Records

reduced

Multigenre Electronic Music producer Mr. Kristopher (Kristopher Gray) has joined forces with Producer/DJ/Guitarist Brett “Madhatter!” Hopkin to release “SIX,” out NOW on Deorro’s Panda Funk Records.

“This record from Madhatter & Mr. Kristopher actually happened pretty naturally thru our friendship. We kept meeting up in different cities we were playing shows and eventually decided to put our two styles together. The name of the song ‘SIX’ is in reference to a bug because of the weird sounds we created for background effects, but what is kind of crazy is that this is also my 6th record I’ve signed in 6 months. I created the first part of the song, Madhatter created the 2nd part of the song, and then, for the 3rd part, we did something that we have never seen before in dance music: we created a build while increasing the BPM. Instead of leaving it at the raised tempo we actually dropped it back down to the original BPM and finished it out with both of our sounds mashed together!” – Mr. Kristopher

Precious Child Releases ‘Escape’ LP Featuring Music From Neil Gaiman Biopic Dream Dangerously

Cinematic Progressive Industrial Artist Precious Child has shifted gears from his dark rock roots to release his exquisite instrumental LP, ESCAPE. Featuring music from the Neil Gaiman biopic Dream Dangerously, ESCAPE was originally premiered on Bloody-Disgusting.

Since this was for Neil’s biopic I decided to consciously approach it as a storytelling exercise. I’m a huge reader with a particular affinity for mythology, folk tales, and legends. In my little circle of personal associates I’m known for my ridiculously fragile and sizable pile of antique Arabian Nights books. Obviously, Neil’s stories get along real well with me. I love the intensity, carnal elements, and scale of his books. My overall favorite is Sandman which I read start to finish non stop over two months of summer while holed up in an exes house. There’s a lot of violence, tragedy, and peril in his stories. There is also a lot of beauty and moments of comfort and intimacy.Precious Child

Nicholas Gunn Releases Final Single & Visualizer For Dark Ambient Series, “Material”

Ambient Instrumental Electronic Composer and Producer Nicholas Gunn has been building his stunning Dark Ambient series Under The Influence Of Music over the last several months, each installment acoustically embodying a specific musical influence. From the debut single “Beauty” to the final single “Material,” today, Gunn has created a collection of unique auditory experiences that will all come together with the full album release in September.

The full Under The Influence Of Music, available September 16th, will include each of the released influences with a special bridge between each track to create an immersive experience, and will also introduce two additional influences, “Sorrow” and “Ritual”, which will be available on the complete collection only. No single downloads will be available from the collection.

To me, it seems our experience on earth has deep purpose and meaning. From the streets of our major cities to the peaks of our highest mountains it appears there is a reason why life happens and unfolds in the manner it does. I personally try to enable myself to participle fearlessly and enjoy a life well lived with meaning. Material celebrates this participation and the primal connection we all have to the material world…. Nicholas Gunn
