Tell Me About Haywyre
The man is a musical prodigy who released his first full album at the age of 16. Martin Vogt p.k.a. Haywyre was initially inspired by a variety of artists including Herbie Hancock, Flying Lotus, and KOAN Sound. At the same time, he simultaneously drew influence from such figures as 19th century Russian composer/pianist Sergei Rachmaninoff.
Haywyre’s eclectic vision and fluid dexterity as a pianist parallels effortlessly with his captivating take on contemporary dance music. It is something unique, to say the least! In 2014, Martin made monumental leaps with his acclaimed “Two Fold, Pt.1” LP, which was inspired by Daoist philosophy and is notable for being the first full length artist album released by the iconic electronic label Monstercat. I’m a huge Monstercat fan, that’s for sure!
He is a well versed keyboardist, and talk box pioneer. A live Haywyre set leaves no stone unturned. And, after earning the admiration and respect of some of the biggest acts in the industry, Haywyre has since been inked as nationwide tour support for the likes of Gramatik, Mat Zo, Zedd, and GRiZ.
