“I believe people want listening music – even on the dancefloor!” So explains Aleksander Vinter of the philosophy driving his musical mastermind alter-ego, Savant. As Savant, Vinter proves a true iconoclast, simultaneously fulfilling expectations and defying them. On the one hand, he deploys the kind of speaker-shredding bangers that have made Savant one of dance music’s most popular rising stars: his dynamic live sets drives crowds at mega-festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival into abandon, yet Savant refuses to conform to EDM genre demarcations – or any, for that matter. “‘Electronic Dance Music’ is the most generic term, which doesn’t apply to what I do,” Vinter explains of the sound he’s dubbed “complextro.” “It’s all about putting everything into one pot of musical ether. I don’t have a rigid formula; my music manages to be comfortable and uncomfortable at the same time. I like breaking rules – that’s where new stuff emerges.” Indeed, this is not your grandmother’s moombahton: 8-bit videogame soundtracks, trap, disco, house, electro, classical, ‘90s big-beat electronica – even ‘70s glam rock and ‘80s new wave finds its way into his sonic odysseys. “I like how a group like Queen is very theatrical and harmonized,” Vinter says. “That epic feeling, plus the style of David Bowie, and the spunk of Prince – that’s what I’m going for, but via dance music.”

Monarch Theatre is a new nightclub in downtown Phoenix conveniently located across the street from the 3rd Street / Washington light rail stop. The 1000-plus capacity venue features a big room with a PK sound system second to none.
