Who’s ready for a jazzy, electronic get down? Haywyre is, and the Austrian-born producer is so freakin’ ready, he’s taking his eclectic dance show on the road. He’s hitting 12 cities across the United States, and because everything is better in pairs, he’s doing it with his good buddy and musical soul brother Opiuo and his aptly-named musical group The Opiuo Band.
“Largely, this tour is about Opiuo and I coming together for the first time to showcase live electronic music and new material,” Haywyre says in an emailed statement. “This is an opportunity to step outside of our comfort zones and experiment with the experience we want the audiences to walk away with. We want to give them something to remember.”
“I’m so ridiculously fizzing for this upcoming tour,” Opiuo continues. “Jamming tons of new music live for the first time with my close friends as The Opiuo Band, and rocking these shows with one of my absolute favorite producers out, Haywyre. I’m all about pushing ourselves and our boundaries, taking the audience on a wild ride. This tour got me spastically excited level funkadelic 3 million!”
Both Haywyre and Opiuo pride themselves on extending the limitations of what electronic dance music can be. Both are experimental, classically-influenced, and ready to burn the house down. Additional support will come from Electric Mantis on the first half of the tour, and Freddy Todd on the second. Tickets are on sale now.
