MINDER 037 - HAVIKEN HAYES
We are massively excited to bring you all an extra special guest mix this month from our first American guest.
Haviken Hayes has contributed a mix that we feel has been missing from our growing range of genres and styles that we have been nurturing over the past year.
Haviken Hayes is a producer who makes music that is expansive, intricate, and varied. He describes his relationship with music as something that he is both obsessed with and motivated by. “I can do anything.” Hayes says this with sincere humility when discussing his varied skilled set, which includes original music production for all genres, and live DJing, where he plays anything and everything along the music spectrum from Hip-Hop, Dance, and Rock to, Downtempo & Rare Grooves.
As a producer his work has been described as cinematic, with strong theatrical undertones, confirming and inspiring his goal of working with independent filmmakers, scoring original film soundtracks. Taking inspiration from the meditative ways of music production luminaries Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin. Hayes is approachable, modest, and easy to communicate with. As much as you can find him DJing for packed dance floors across South Florida, Hayes also throws a monthly event at Mystic Water Kava Bar in Hollywood, Florida called “Ataraxia,” attracting the kava-drinking conscious yoga crowd and bringing that signature feeling of balance to his live DJing schedule.
His past is definitely filled with impressive credits and credentials (URB Magazine ‘Next 100,’ – 1999, Miami New Times ‘Best Club DJ’ – 2008), and his future is defined by vision and attainable goals.
