"Savej nails funky trap with 'Take Me Higher'"

New Orleans native Savej has been on the come up, rising through contrasting Southern scenes. Vouched for by Run DMT and repping the Kill Your Ego crew, the young producer walks the cultural tightrope found somewhere between the heady vibes of the small to mid-sized festival scene and the trap house.

Donnie Bergeron honed his chops during his teenage years crafting beats for local MC's in Nola but has evolved to the point where he blends these fundamentals in with a variety of very modern influences. In dropping "Take Me Higher" Savej is sharing a cut that features huge 808s chopped up with some gritty bass with elements of funk and dub, to create an aesthetic that is sophisticated while at the same time raw. - The Untz

"Savej explores the outer reaches of the universe with 'NOLA Deemster'"

For Donnie Bergeron, making music is all about trying new things, and exploring new territories. His latest track seals the deal for us: Savej is one of the most exciting young producers out there, today.

Using his home base of New Orleans as an unflagging inspiration for his future funk meets dirty south trap milieu, Bergeron has developed a sound that appeals broadly across the electronic spectrum, but without diluting or dumbing it down. We've already fallen in love with his heavy stuff, his hip-hop stuff, and his horny stuff, no doubt, but today's premiere gives us an even greater picture of what Savej can do.

"NOLA Deemster" sounds like GRiZ blasting off at a Shpongle show on the bayou. Trippy and full of those psytrance samples about mind-expansion we know and love, this tongue-in-cheek outer space adventure brings the Savej sound to the transformational sect. Who the hell is discussing DMT in the trap world, huh? Just like the big future funk acts started dominating the late night lineups at festivals, we can see Bergeron completely annhilating those west coast festivals we love so much with a furiously funky set that speaks to the crowd's tastes.

We're throwing down the gauntlet. Festival organizers: get yourself on board for the next big thing, because the Savej spaceship is about to launch. - The Untz

Born and raised in the Honey Island Swamp of Louisiana, Savej, pronounced [savage] - has always been deeply connected to the mysterious allure of nature and the wisdom it holds. Combining world instruments, the sounds of nature, and shamanic influences with hip-hop influenced tribal rhythms and a southern 808 feel, his music weaves together modern and ancient culture.
