The live electronic band Savoy have been non stop touring around the country with their impressive laser setup. In the middle of the all the touring they had time to create an extremely impressive 4 song release. It’s the Personal Legend EP and we are happy to be sponsoring it. The first song “The Bridge” has captures their classic electro house sound with a funk filled edge. The second track on the EP, “AfterShock” is the MASSIVE dubstep paced collaboration between Savoy and Big Gigantic and WHOA.. this is one for the books. It perfectly fuses the best parts of Savoy and Big Gigantic for an onslaught of bass, melody, and emotion. Then up next is “Kidz” which is an extra frightening electro rave anthem, not one for the faint of heart. Last up is “Hard to Say” which is melodic drum and bass beast to end the release.
