Haywyre – Infinite
Posted by Mach on June 25, 2012
After our featured post of Haywyre a few months back, the man was more than grateful and in the opinions of FNT, more than deserving. Today is the release of Haywyre’s 6th musical compilation, the album titled ‘Infinite.’ I cannot stop listening to this new album, Haywyre’s history of piano composition is reflected immensely all over the course of his work. Last minute he teamed up with Jay Fresh to do a vocal mix of his highly anticipated instrumental, ‘Raw Crunch.’ The track was already wanted by all, but now with that extra step into Hip-Hop it is simply irresistible.
“The idea behind the album name “Infinite” came from our tendency to label existences with specific beginnings and ends. The circle represents the possibility of a never-ending existence, as opposed to one with a beginning and an end.”
Infinite is comprised of many different styles, more prominently Dubstep, but also consisting of Glitch-Hop and little Electro/Lounge styling. His first track ‘Prototype’ kicks off with some smooth Glitch-Hop, as funny as it is to say. The track then breaks into his mastery of the Piano leading only into an incredible Glitch drop. Exclusive to Beatport is his second track, and by far one of the more incredible of the album, ‘LD004.’ This Orchestral Dubstep track really puts the top 10 of Dubstep to shame. The bass is massive, but not messy sounding like a lot of Dubstep theses days. Assembled flawlessly, the repeat button is the only next logical move. By far my favorite track of the entire Album, ‘Raw Crunch’ shows an entire new side tot he potential Glitch-Hop holds. The intro carries you seamlessly into a Razor drop (Dubstep/Electro), and from there you are completely blown away by the composure that Haywyre created for this massive track. ‘Raw Crunch’ finishes off strong in true Glitch-hop fashion, continually blowing your mind until the very end.
His second Exclusive to Beatport, ‘Contrast,’ is another big Glitch-Hop tune. Embodying the idea of contrast, this track floats right into more of that Razor style. I love the name of ‘Stone Shower,’ and once you listen you will understand why. The track has this vibe of rain falling, but breaking from the first simple Glitch drop you quickly are introduced to the bass stones that now wash away all else. The last orignal of the album is yet another favorite of mine from the album. ‘Mezmerize’ does just that to you, I cannot get enough of that Electric Guitar. Listening to the track you wonder where all the bass went. Patience is a virtue, and well worth the wait as the track progresses into an incredible drop. As a bonus, is a remix of ‘LD004′ from The Digital Connection, transforming the track into a more intense Glitch/Dubstep version of the original. This album has to be one of the best releases I have heard in 2012. Besides the two exclusives to Beatport, ‘Infinite’ is FREE! Don’t be shy to show Haywyre some love and name a higher price on Bandcamp than $0.00. He is more than deserving of the support. I hope everyone else enjoys this album just as much as I have, it truly is a masterpiece.
