Events | Making Good Decisions at Global Dance Festival

Posted by on July 18, 2013


This weekend marks the 11th running of Global Dance Festival at Red Rocks, presented by Colorado’s own electronic pioneers, Triad Dragons. Now, this may come off a little strong, but Global is honestly the reason why I fell in love with electronic music in the first place. Not trying to sound like a total n00b to the electro game because quite frankly I was listening to Basement Jaxx, Ace of Base and Fatboy Slim’s “Sun Is Shining”  before I could even read the lyrics so the point I’m actually trying to make here is that Global made me fall in love with the electronic music of our generation (I will NOT reference the E-word, ugh gag me). But the unique thing about Global isn’t the elaborate stage production, yoga circles or 12-hour long DJ sets but the fact that founders Ha Hau and Kostas Kouremenos have stayed true to their mission, and that is bringing in fresh talent and keeping up with the changing tides of the music industry. Not only that, it’s a beautiful amphitheater with natural yet incredible acoustics, with the nicest, most genuine, borderline eclectic crowd out there in the festival circuit. The fans, the producers, the shot callers, there all there for one thing, and that’s the music.

In fact, if there’s one thing you can take away from Global be it that you are presented with the opportunity of witnessing some of the most talented upcoming acts mere moments before their career takes off. Take a look at past lineups and you’ll see what I mean. Even looking at this year’s, you might roll your eyes and pout, But, ehh, where’s Deadmau5? No Armin? What about Porter? Well, you’re a few years too late for those guys, but hey, without further ado, I’m gonna clue you in on everyone you need to see this weekend and why. So when your friends show you some average Instagram photo taken from only the 1,000th row back at Sander van Doorn’s Tomorrowworld set, you can shit on them with your epic, close-up, well-filtered, brilliantly contrasted shot with the Denver Skyline in the background. You’re welcome.


Electro-House | SAVOY & Bright Lights – I Dare You

Posted by on March 11, 2013


Leaders in the blossoming Colorado dance music scene, Savoy make their debut on Wolfgang Garter’s Kindergarten Records with their new single “I Dare You”. Savoy reunite with Heather Bright or Bright Lights after collabs like “We Are The Sun“, who unsurprisingly lays down some stunning vocals over Savoy’s heavy instrumental that lets Heather’s vocals shine, while adding growling saws and thumping bass to this well layered electro track. Having just finished up their Live With Lasers tour, look for more original material to come from them before they get back out on the road. If you have not already grab their recent 4 track EP “Personal Legend” for free here.

Electro | The Mamas & The Papas – California Dreamin (SAVOY Remix)

Posted by on October 19, 2011

Savoy has been teasing people about this track for some time now. Only a week ago they asked the fans who we thought should get the track exclusively, congrats to Vacay Vitamins for the win on that one. In a way I feel this is the most popular track to remix, I have countless favorites that are remixes of this track. The best in my opinion being Minnesota’s remix and now this bumping tune from SAVOY. Worth the wait.
