    ..Combining elements of complextro, drum & bass, glitch hop, 8-bit, and even midtempo in his music, his Facebook quote says it best–”RIP Genres.” 2012 saw the release of four full-length albums, each release a testament to Savant’s diversity as an artist. His most recent, Alchemist, hit the Top 10 on the iTunes US Dance Charts. He gives out numerous free tracks through his social media outlets, and is now slated to tour North America and Europe. If 2013 is anything like last year, expect to see (Read More)

    May as well kick off the New Year with one of our favorite finds of 2012. Just a few short days ago, we shared Savant's "Vario 64," which blew our minds with chipstep madness. And this is just how quickly Aleksander Vinter works: he's got a brand new complextro delight for us 100 hours later. This from a Norwegian metalhead who is sitting on 10,000 tracks... (Read More)

    ...You can argue that, in such an influential year, there are big-name artists out there that are maybe more deserving of such praise. But when you come right down to it, no one in the entire EDM world accomplished more than Savant did this past year. Putting out four full-length albums–including... (Read More)
  • Anand Harsh of The Untz Dec. 28, 2012
    Looking to cure that eggnog hangover? The new one from Savant should kick your ass back into place. Aleksander Vinter is a prolific young producer from Norway. And prolific is really an understatement, as he's got 10,000 songs under his belt, from classical and hip-hop, to metal and most notably dubstep. Battling a smidge of mental malaise, Vinter actually uses his Asperger's and ADD diagnosis to his advantage by developing these lush productions in his head and ripping through them within a mat (Read More)

    In case you don't know who Vario is, look no further than multi-genre artist, Savant, of SectionZ Records! This guy has been killing the scene with his video game inspired tunes, ranging from trap to electro. He just released a free tune entitled "Vario 64."

  • Alex Dragonov of UnderGround Sound Dec. 26, 2012
    Norwegian musician and producer Aleksander Vinter, aka Savant, has a long history experimenting with sound, from playing a Yamaha electric organ at age 4 to composing music with such computer programs as eJay and FastTracker. With no formal musical training, he discovered an uncanny ability to spontaneously imagine and then compose original music, oftentimes writing and finishing up to an astonishing 3 songs per day; his personal catalog exceeds 10,000, and he’s only 25...

    ‘Alchemist’ might be one of the strongest testaments to that fact as the twenty-two track album is packed with some of his most massive and finest productions, all traversing through the various types of electronic dance music to brilliantly create what cannot be defined by genre classifications and should only be categorized and explained by the album title as Savant truly takes every sound imaginable and combines them in such a way that the resulting musical chemistry is pure, untarnished elec (Read More)

    Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, it’s time to get back to our electro roots with none other than the man Aleksander Vinter AKA Savant. Unabashedly abrasive and inescapably destructive, this little piece of divine intervention has all the elements necessary to blow the roof off a major venue near you. Make no mistake, this one is big, and oh, it’s free. (Read More)

  • Steven G. of 365 Albums a Year Oct. 11, 2012
    Let’s dial our focus in a bit. Aleksander Vinter, more commonly known by his artist moniker, Savant, is a producer from Norway who has been making increasingly large waves in the electronic music community. His first album, Outbreak, which was released back in 2009, was nominated for a Norwegian Grammy Award, and two of his most recent albums, Vario and Overworld, reached #1 on Beatport’s list of Top 100 Releases. Here’s the really interesting part: according to his official Facebook page..... (Read More)
  • Tobias of DÖDSELECTRO Oct. 8, 2012
    To tell you the truth I’m not that much of a fan of Savant‘s music. It contains to much of those squeeky high pitched sounds and melodies. But today I noticed he threw this up on his soundcloud a couple of days ago. Beeing a hardcore Danger fan, I had to check it out right... (Read More)
  • StatiK of Salacious Sound Oct. 3, 2012
    (Savant #5 of listed tracks on this blog)-- I’ve been really enjoying Savant lately, largely because it seems he is fearless in jumping all over the place throughout a song. Here’s a great example, with genres shifting from rock, to electro, to trap, building up to peaks of face melting dubstep... (Read More)

  • Derek Dellovo of yourEDM Sept. 18, 2012
    Savant, a young Norwegian producer, recently released a full length album on SectionZ Records titled ISM. The album is impressive, to say the least. Savant has grown somewhat of a cult following, and has put out a considerable amount of music over a short span of time. His Facebook page claims he has created over 10,000 original productions across many different genres. ISM is a glimpse into the mind of an extremely talented producer. Never to be confined by just one genre, ISM spans the ... (Read More)

    Taking on the latest hit single by the highly dynamic Norwegian pop duo Shackles, Savant has created an extremely exciting cross-genre blend of catchy, sensual female vocals with cascading, up-beat dubstep bass. A perfect combination that is both sexy, high-energy, and fun to dance to all at the same time, this extraordinary approved remix takes the gorgeous voices of Charlotte and Lwam and transforms "Don't Sleep" into an all-out dance-floor hit of absolutely monumental proportions....

    Permalink We all know the definition of “Superhuman”; surpassing the abilities and thresholds of what the average human is capable of. Imagine stepping outside in the depths of a blizzard, completely naked, and feeling nothing but a cool indifference. Dutchman Wim Hof doesn’t need to imagine: his body doesn’t understand freezing temperatures. He is effectively impervious to cold. And beyond physical feats of Marvel-esque proportion, there are those who rise above the call of normality in t... (Read More)

    Started to see some of the submissions popping up for Zedd's remix competition of "Spectrum". This one was brought to my attention by Jaques, and for good reason. The stems for this track where already hot fire so Savant (Aleksander Vinter) really took it to another level with his electro banger. Voting is open, so go show him some love HERE (Read More)
  • Editor of Dubstep.net June 30, 2012
    Fresh off Savant's new "Mindmelt" Free EP, "Heartmakers" is a highly-anticipatory banger laden with heavy and anthemic stadium synths and a diverse array of deep, heavy, and absolutely monstrous bass growls. Resonant string-like melodicism sends vibrant rays of light cascading through the cavernous depths of "Heartmakers" brooding sonic underworld, a secret coven uncovered by the overwhelming radiance of "Heartmakers" utterly rapturous drop.

  • Laser of Laser Magazine June 25, 2012
    The norwegian electro-superman Savant releases a free EP with a fistfull of earthshaking tracks! All these tracks are, as mentioned when you download the EP ‘backup WIPs (Work In Progress)’ due to hard drive failure. So they are not finished work. But hey, it gets me going and that’s all that matters! Grab these babies now! (Read More)
  • Ross Newman of More Electro Please June 14, 2012
    It is nice to see a musician going back to his roots. Normally, the roots aren't going so far back as the baroque period though. Who possibly complain about a little bit of class in their music? Maybe it is a little bit cocky for an artist to name himself Savant, but at least he backs it up with some crazy tracks. Off of his newest album Overworld (available on Beatport) this track starts off as a classical tune but transforms into a dubstep then into drum and bass then to electro house an... (Read More)

    You're at the final level, and the last thing standing between you and your darling reward is that big old stinkin "Bad Baws". Savant drops an enormous album with influences from 8 bit games to reggae music. This track shifts directions quickly but with a smooth transition. Use hyper fluxed fire balls to hold your ground as "Bad Baws" shoots lasers back at you. Massive banger, be sure to check out the "OverWorld" album on beatport. (Read More)
  • Jim of Laser Magazine June 1, 2012
    Savant is the norwegian electro party starter that you absolutely don’t want to miss. And definitely not his latest album Overworld who is filled with both madness and happyness combined! Savant, or Alexander Vinter which is his real name did go under the name Vinter in Hollywood earlier and did release some stuff on So French Records back in ’09. You’ve probably heard the album ‘Outbreak’ which became a pretty successfull album. Savant did recently release his huge, long awaited album Var... (Read More)
