What’s up dance music fans? Boulder’s very own Savoy has released their second EP of the year, entitled Nothin For Nothin, and this time the trio is back with original tracks as well as remixes of artists Dire Straights, No Doubt and Santigold.
I remember the first time I ever managed to catch Savoy live, and it was on top of a mountain at the beautiful Red Rocks Amphitheatre and with a view of the city of Denver I took in for the first time one of my current favorite acts in dance music. The set at Monolith was earth-shaking and before I knew it the show was over and I was out of breath from gettin down to those live drums and great sounding FX. After Monolith Festival, and I am certain that I am not alone in this, I rushed home to Google whatever I could to find on this band and I first heard their first LP, Automatic, and was instantly a fan.
The new EP, to a degree is similar to the first album and EP but listening through the bass thumps even harder than ever before. The EP kicks off with ‘Back To Basics’ a club-thumper with dead-sexy vocals and a build that blew my mind, I can tell this track is gonna be knockin’ em dead at Savoy shows for awhile. Next is ‘Hella Good’ with vocoder vocals and hard house synths at the start, and as always Savoy teases the listener with that so-desired drop to come. When the drop actually does hit the ears, you can not help but dance at least a little bit in your desk. The drums are awesome in this track, as usual, really adds to the sound. When the drop actually does come, hold on to your seat.
The next track ‘Life of the Party’ reminds me a lot of previous Savoy efforts, but is a fairly solid track. The Shove It (Remix) that follows is one of the strongest tracks on the EP. The vocals are awesome and the drop is as heavy as we would expect from Savoy, but employ a sort of bass walk throughout the song for a somewhat tribal feel. The following song ‘Real People’ may remind a lot of you of a famous deadmau5 song, but it is not too hard to see what Savoy was trying to go with the song. It will be a hit at shows.
The final track, the title track ‘Nothin for Nothin’ is probably the best song on the EP and the one I would most recommend to DJs lookin for some new Savoy to be mixed into your set. Its got a thunderous bassline mixed in with some crazy sounding synths. Hell even has a little electric guitar riff mixed into the track. Great stuff.
Be sure to check out Savoy Friday night at Global Dance Festival. This is definetly their biggest show ever with heavyweights like deadmau5, Infected Mushroom, Rusko, Kaskade, Pendulum, Paul Van Dyk and more on the bill!! If you are going be on the lookout for Got Bass Music doing promotion and be sure to come say hi to us! Enjoy!
