[The EDM Underground] Artist of the Week: Haywyre


Xavier Humberg

To celebrate the beginnings of Haywyre’s Two Fold Pt. 2 Tour, the EDM Underground has mixed together the best tracks by the musical genius. The Minnesota based Martin Vogt’s style is based primarily upon piano improvisation. Much like Zedd, Haywyre is classically trained, and it shows in everything he does.

The mix starts with the first two tracks off his latest album, Two Fold Pt. 2, entitled “I Am Me” and “I Am You.” These two tracks were literally made for each-other. Haywyre opens his concerts with these two songs played one after the other; therefore, my mix does too.

Immediately following is my favorite track Vogt has ever made: Dichotomy (Soft Mix) from his Two Fold Pt. 1 album. Surprisingly hard for something labeled a soft mix, this track blew my socks off the first time I’d heard it and I HAD to share it.

Near the end of the mix come a few more of my favorite tracks: Endlessly and Insight. Showcasing the best of his piano improvisation skills in a wobbly synth melody, Haywyre’s talent is most apparent in these songs. With several classical jazz elements on top of a gritty bass line, these tracks earned a permanent part of my personal library after just the first few seconds of their drops.
