Who the Hell is Haywyre?

haywyre smooth criminal remix michael jackson

We’re not entirely sure who Haywyre is but … wow.

What has us so blown away is this remixed version of the classic Michael Jackson cut, Smooth Criminal. Check it out below …

‘Impressive’ doesn’t really cover it, but there you go. As mere bystanders it’s impossible not to note that it takes some serious chops to take on a classic work of pop straight from the MJ catalog — dare we say, for you EDM fans out there, this track might even top the original.

There seems to be a growing opinion out there to label electronic musicians as void of talent — little more than button pressing guys and gals as so wonderfully depicted by that now infamous SNL digital short. Haywyre should easily stop casual detractors of the genre in their tracks.

From the limited amount of info we were able to dig up about Haywyre, the guy hails from both Milwaukee & Minneapolis. That’s about it. A quick scroll through his website will take you to some bad links and we’re not entirely sure how active the artist is. Some of his material is dated back only 3 months ago.

For even more sounds of Haywyre, be sure to scope out his Soundcloud profile. We’ve been bumping his mixed material in the office this morning and we like what we’re hearing — you will too.
