Saturday night at the Electric Factory was most definitely a dubstep masterpiece. The venue, which has become a staple in the Philly music scene, hosted the Savage Tour this past weekend. Borgore and a few of his friends took over the decks for a night filled with a whole lot of bass, moshing and of course twerking.
Around 9 o’clock Prince Fox kicked it off as the first opener. Fox successfully prepped the crowd for the night with his head-banging mixes to some popular songs. The crowd was hype, singing along with the chorus and raging during the drops. Fox kept the energy up himself, making his set even more enjoyable. At one point he jumped into the crowd and had the photographers in the pit running to capture the moment. Not one second was dull during this set. In all, if you like the idea of a pop-dubstep mix, Prince Fox is your go-to.
Next to take the stage was one of the pioneers of dubstep, 12th Planet. This man was killing it with his beats as well as his dance moves on stage. His set was a package of sharp metallic sounds and some trippy visuals. The heads were banging, the pits moshing, and rightfully so. This set was one that you felt move through you. 12th Planet, thank you.
Finally, at 12:30 the man of the night, Borgore, took over. He started off setting the mood by saying, “I want see some a** tonight”. Clearly this man loves a hype crowd, and he got just that. With a mix of some of his popular songs and some new he kept the vibe filthy and hardcore. This included mixes of “Red Lips” by GTA and his own song “Forbes” that features G-Eazy. Borgore engaged with the audience calling for an “insane moshpit” and of course ending the night with what he loves most, an onstage twerking competition. The Savage Tour certainly lived up to its name Saturday night in Philadelphia.
