With a consistent 20-year presence in the underground electronic music scene, Malaysian born, Hayze’s journey of improving and reinventing himself as an artist is more dynamic than ever. Experienced, passionate and dedicated, combined with a comprehensive skill set as a singer, songwriter, producer, musician, performer and DJ, the world is in his hands. The energy and drive for creating meaningful and moving music ditto performances, constantly grows to new and exciting heights.
2012 was a big turning point in the life of Hayze, both personally and professionally. After overthrowing and surviving a life-threatening disease his whole perspective on life changed. Before his successful and well-known career was running under the moniker: Haze. By advice from his visionary father he changed Haze into Hayze. Same man, same heart, same talent, but a different way of life. What’s in a “Y”? Perspective!
Hayze might be best known for his work with household names like Noir, Sandy Rivera, Kings of Tomorrow, Audiowhores, Nic Fanculli, etc. Always proving his talent for creating emotional, melancholic and moving music/vocals. With every Hayze endeavor, it is safe to say that heart and soul are added undoubtedly. Tracks like ‘Around’, ‘Angel’, ‘Changes’, ‘Freak’, ‘Dreams’, and ‘Thru’ all received anthem status in the underground. Affirming Hayze is synonymous with delivering quality productions with impactful vocals and lyrics that stand the test of time.
‘Around’ is one of his biggest releases with production partner and long time friend Noir. Solomon’s remix hitting 24 million views (and counting) on YouTube was named ‘Top 50 Dance Tracks of All Time’ by Mix Mag. Gracing more DJ boxes than there is space to name, this trend of success continued long into 2012 when Defected re-released it with an array of remixes from the likes of Rudimental, Habischam and Murk. The long expected successor ‘Angel’ with Noir was released March 2014. The record went #1 on Beatport Tech House Charts just one week shy of its release, making it an instant future classic.
Hayze is currently busy with solo projects and new singles. First one up, to be released April 1st 2016, is ‘Brighter Days’ on Noir Music; with a sublime remix by UK star Huxley. And he does not sit still. The next couple of staggering releases are on their way and due to be released later in 2016. An album project and touring are on his radar now. As well as he loves being locked up in the studio, being out there in the open to perform as a DJ or singer keeps on inspiring him. With so much support and love from some of underground’s most elite, Hayze continues to connect to the world through his music.
