Fresh off his flight after playing a sold out show in Denver with Shpongle and Alex Grey the night before, out-of-the-box dubtronica producer Govinda ended his 2015 tour in Fayetteville, Arkansas this past Saturday, December 12. Just down the street from the University of Arkansas, George’s Majestic Lounge was popping off, beginning with Doohickey on the decks. Ryan Viser followed, getting the crowd on their feet by incorporating trumpet playing into his unique DJ set complete with originals and remixes of familiar tunes.
The stage was finally turned over to the headliner of the evening, Govinda. His always innovative set revved the crowd up with the melodious sounds of his signature violin. A classically trained violinist since the age of eight, it’s always a treat to witness Govinda electronically manipulate the sound coming from this beautiful instrument. By the end of the night, everyone was on their feet dancing and drenched in sweat. A job well done, and a fantastic conclusion to Govinda’s 2015 fall tour.
