Recently, Minneapolis producer Haywyre
(Martin Vogt) unleashed a captivating EP appropriately dubbed Infinite
; a breathtaking release filled to the brim with sharp transitions and bouncy bass lines.
One of the most impressive tracks off the release features Dallas MC Jay Fresh
(Jordan Michael Johnson), who is quickly gaining recognition with his energetic style of conscious hip-hop that blends perfectly with bass filled cuts. “Raw Crunch” is a synth driven gem that strikes immediately with Johnson spitting enticing bars as the song slowly builds up and drops with incredible passion and tenacity. Vogt continues to show how quickly he is growing on every release, with a breathtaking style of production that seems far beyond his years as each note weaves in and out of immersive drum bursts.
Both artists use their individual talents to create a powerful electronic hip-hop song that avoids using corny and repetitive lyrics, and instead sets the bar for this burgeoning crossover genre.
