It’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything new from the laser fan boys, Savoy, most likely because they’ve been on a nonstop whirl wind of a tour. As they plan for another round of tour dates, hitting college towns across the country, they shed light on what we can expect on new music from the Colorado homies. Savoy announced a full length album, “Self Predator” that will be released on January 14th.. one can only hope they will offer it up for free like most of their other releases. The first track to come off the album is a VIP edit from their huge single I’m in Need, a fantastic single they released at the height of the dubstep craze. Continue reading for their entire tour schedule to see if they are headed your way!
After an immensely fun weekend at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre, there is no doubt this was the biggest Global Dance Festival to date at Red Rocks! With Sunday almost selling out and great attendance for both Friday and Saturday there is no doubt that the weekend was a massive success. Although initially I had doubts about Global’s choice to use each night to sort of highlight a genre or audience type, but in the end I realized this was a great decision. As Friday brought out the best in live dance music acts, Saturday brought the dubstep and electro fiends, and Sunday rounded out the week nicely with about 9,000 or so bass heads in attendance!
Beats Antique stole the show for me on Friday as they flooded the stage with their usual Cirque Du Soleil type entertainment and amazing live performance leaving the crowd in awe. Saturday began with amazing bass filled sets from Basscrooks, Candyland, and Carnage that merely reaffirmed by belief in the immense talents all three posses. Arty, Sander, Emma Hewitt, and Savoy finished out the night down on the main stage leaving the crowd in an absolute frenzy. Well everybody said Sunday was the day to be there, and with amazing performances from Kill Paris and Sound Remedy to start off the night, it seemed Sunday just may have it all. With a massive back to back 2 hour set from Baauer and RL Grime followed by Griz, Gramatik, and finally Grizmatik, the crowd was stoked to say the least. Finally to close out the weekend, Mr. Tigran Mimosa smoked the place out leaving us all begging for more with his first true headlining set at Red Rocks.
All in all the weekend was a massive success and we at MMIBTY would like to thank everyone at Global Dance for all their hard work and efforts to make this amazing event happen each summer. Gorgeous weather combined with epic line ups made for the perfect storm of music, dancing, and partying that is so specific to the venue that is Red Rocks. Be sure to check out a bunch of tracks from the weekend in the set below as well as the full Photo Album from all 3 days of the gorgeous madness that was Global Dance Festival 2013 in Colorado!
Colorado, it is finally here. The weekend we have all been waiting for, Global Dance Festival 2013 at the gorgeous Red Rocks Amphitheater is upon us, and hopefully the ladies above bring out their super soakers again. You may have caught our first Preview of Global Colorado already, but this one has a special little gift from our friends SAVOY and Kill Paris. Just in time for the three day festival in the most gorgeous amphitheater in the country SAVOY and Kill Paris have both blessed us with two stellar hour long mixes! SAVOY’s mix, is simply and aptly titled the Colorado Mix, while Kill Paris teamed up with Global Dance to make the official Global Dance 2013 Mix. Not sure if the guys at SAVOY actually put much thought into the name of their mix, but either way Colorado loves you SAVOY and we cannot wait to see you on Saturday night with Kill Paris following on Sunday! With a slam packed line up this is sure to be the biggest Global Dance Festival yet, and just in case you hadn’t heard Grizmatik was recently added to the bill as a little icing on the cake! Check out the Global Dance Festival website for all TICKETS and INFO, and be sure to show SAVOY and Kill Paris some love below as I am sure they will return the favor on Saturday.

Today is a good day indeed. One of my favorite electronic groups have released their newest EP upon the masses for free! I have been a huge fan of the Colorado kids of Savoy since first catching them live in a Heineken dome many years ago in Vegas. Having a live component in their shows helps them emphasize how rock plays such a significant role in their production. The first two tracks that Savoy lay down are rock based-EDM, heavy drum samples with that pulsating electro feel that you have to expect. However, the final two tracks definitely have a French house feel to them, perhaps drawing from acts like Justice and Daft Punk. Overall the EP is a great listen and is already finding its’ way into many playlists as we enter the summer festival season.
Krewella was awarded the IDMA Breakout Artist of the Year down in Miami a few weeks back giving them even more attention, if possible, then before. With that said, it is surprising that when they announced the remixers for their hit single, Come and Get It, it was full of unheard acts like The Chaotic Good and DMNDZ. Allowing these artists a moment in the limelight seems almost like a passing of the torch gesture as these talents pull out all of the stops to make themselves remembered after the first or second listen. The big name on the bill has to be Savoy, who murders the original. Overall, this is a solid remix pack covering the genre spectrum from trap to dubstep, to electro house and the best part about it is it is absolutely free!
HUGE is the first word that comes to mind after listening through this four track EP for the first time. Cranking out some of the heaviest electro house and dubstep anthems I’ve heard all year, this EP doesn’t let you catch your breath from start to finish. The Bridge starts us off with a funky electro beat that gets you warmed up for the monstrous collaboration with Big Gigantic. Nothing can prepare you for AfterShock, but my favorite track is numero three, Kidz, a heart pounding thrill ride that should be enjoyed at extremely high volumes. The EP concludes with Hard to Say which reminds me of a Rusko original, enough said there right. The entire EP is being offered as a free download as the live electronic band continues to tour the states with their insane lazer show as they gear up for the upcoming festival season. This is not an EP to sleep on! Download links are below.
