If you are unfamiliar with Savant, let me tell you, you are missing out. Aleksander Vinter, a.k.a. Savant, has blow up in the last couple of years. I have personally been listening to Savant since Ninur debuted in 2011. Savant has been releasing music for years, as far back at 2007 or so, but blew threw the roof when his song “Splinter” was released on his 2012 album “Vario”. Give it a listen here:
It is impossible to characterize Savant into any one genre. He dips his magical fingers into every genre from glitch-hop to dubstep to even rock n' roll. He is certain to deliver you with an experience that is unique and mystifying!
Savant has a unique story, in that, he is actually a savant. Now, I may butcher this description, so hopefully I do not insult anyone. But, as Aleks put it in a recent interview he did, a savant is someone who is autistic who is, “REALLY REALLY good at one thing and just really bad at everything else.” This guy is a music-producing machine. If you look at his Facebook, Aleks is putting out album, after album, after album. Every so often he will post a video to Instagram giving us little taste of what he has been working on, and let me tell you, those 15 seconds are never enough. I saw him at The El Rey Theatre last year (for anyone else who was there, yes, I was the guy with the golden flamingo) and it was absolutely amazing. His music is so rich, and his story is so powerful. Aleks really should be looked at as inspiration for all of us. And holy hell does he put on an amazing show.
Savant recently released his latest album “Protos” which was a refreshing spin off from what his normal train of renaissance melodies, and fat “in your face” bass lines. He is also already teasing his new album “Zion” (this guy doesn't stop) on his Facebook. I am almost 100% sure that he will be dropping some of his newest tracks at his show on Halloween. Oh ya, about that…
