Every now and then our ears are witness to something new, something it never expected. Usually it signifies the birth of a new genre of music, other times its the perfection of one. But sometimes if wt sometimes if we are really lucky we become a part of something bigger, something that should not even be possible. For EDM that something is SAVANT.
Hailing from Oslo, Norway SAVANT's creator Aleksander Vinter was not a name chosen but rather a description. He has Aspergers Syndrome but it has come with a gift of an extraordinary musical splinter skills. He has created well over 10,000 songs from Classical to Black Metal to Dubstep and everything in between. He was even been nominated for a Norwegian Grammy Award in 2009 for his first album called "Outbreak".
He debuted as SAVANT in late 2011 with his album Ninur and has been on a rocket ship ever since showing lovers of EDM that there is much more to be done. In 2012 he broke loose with four full albums starting with Vario in February (Beatport #4 Top Release), Overworld in June (Beatport #1 Top Release), ISM in September (Beatport #1 Top Release) and Alchemist in December. As if that wasn't enough he also released dozens of tracks to his fans via SoundCloud as "Mixtapes" and free EPs like "Mindmelt" and "Overkill". His hard work shattered expectations and in 2013 with his 7 track EP "♥" (heart) he dominated the charts at Beatport.com with #1 Overall, #1 Electro House, #1 D&B, #1 Glich-Hop and around that release SAVANT had 39 tracks across all of the Beatport charts.
