The efforts of Hayze on Noir Music have been very fruitful so far. Mesmerizing hits like “Around” and “Angel“, were both brought into this world in collaboration with the label’s head honcho Noir. Being no stranger to the label, time has come for a debut solo release by Hayze.
Everyone, sooner or later, experiences a life-changing moment. Some of these moments have a modest impact; other moments change your whole perspective on things. These are the points in life that make a difference. Overthrowing and surviving a life-threatening disease made Haze change his name to Hayze, by advice from his father. Same guy, same heart, same talent, but a different identity ready for the next chapter. Making “Brighter Days” not only his first solo project after his turning point, but an important and meaningful release for many more reasons.
Hayze about “Brighter Days“:
“Brighter Days” comes from a true place in my heart as with all my records. It’s about finding light in the dark times; about hope, having faith in music and realizing the power of dance…
“Sometimes you gotta be singing, singing, singing the blues away. Sometimes you gotta be dancing, dancing, dance in the rainy days” – Hayze
The original mix is deep with a lush synth riff as its main hook, laced over a phat rolling bass line underneath a bed of beats that have little nuances of effects and subtle percussion that come in and out without it feeling repetitive. The vocals are classic Hayze, deep, meaningful and melodic with hints of melancholy.
UK star Huxley shines on remix duties for this one. Taking elements from the original synth riff, he manages to capture a whole different vibe with the record, with strings and pianos complementing an uplifting dramatic breakdown coming straight into a garage style bass line that is vibrant and fresh overall with head nodding beats. It’s one to watch out for.
Rain or shine, music never stops.
