Most recognized for his brilliant ability to transfer insatiable pop energy into banging, progressive house tracks, Morgan Page merges punchy beats with catchy melodies to create a high-energy style that fires up dance floors around the world. He is one of the most in demand remixers in the industry, breathing life into every track he touches.

In the past year, Mord Fustang has become a dance music sensation as well as a Colorado crowd-favorite. He self-describes his sound as “An adventurously nude fluctuant immaculate rainbow-coated thunderstorm with arpeggios, 1-up mushrooms and disco basslines, plus a wobble or two. Something like that.” Whatever that means, his style is definitely getting noticed. His sets are described as 'pure energy explosions', incorporating elements of dubstep, trance, and everything in between. We are very excited to experience Mord Fustang's unique style that is taking the world by storm at Global Dance Festival 2012.
